Interesting take here on the popo man’s shutdown of Oink by DJ/Rupture. Unlike a lot of the artists/label owners that I’ve come across Jace sees the closure of Oink as a blow for independent musicians as well as MP3 hoarders and as ever sets out his case in a thoughtful, intelligent way. Can’t say I agree wholeheartedly with everything he says here, I know too many small labels that are suffering and struggling to survive at the moment (and unlike a lot of people I still see record labels in some form or another as an important part of the industry) but there is lots of sense here. Would be interesting to see him debate the issue at length with some other leftfield artists and label owners.
