Anousonne Savanchomkeo of GrandCrew.com just sent us this nice link. This time the GrandCrew team filmed this outstanding avangardist concert of Antipop Consortium on November 9th, 2009 in La Maroquinerie in Paris. It is an outstanding mixture between electro and hip hop… Don’t miss to watch and listen. Enjoy and kudos to Paris…
This track is from 1994. We at incomplete-news feel this is one is still unfolding the same nice brain massage like at that time.
Six years after their last EP “Antipop Consortium vs. Matthew Ship” the british alternative Hip-Hop group Antipop Consortium releases a new album: Fluorescent Black.
After breaking up for doing solo projects in 2003, they reunited in 2007 and said in an August 2007 interview that they reunited with the intention of touring and releasing a new record. The time has come.

The cat and mouse game goes into its next round. After the media companies have fought a quite successful lobby war against basic liberties, the operators of the PirateBay are now testing a service that anonymizes your traces as internet user.
The Business Model
3,000 internet users are right now in beta testing. 180,000 people world wide have registered. This is a solid business model as this service will cost €5 per month. With an conservatively estimated amount of users of 200,000 this is €12 million per year.
The technology is well known as VPN (virtual private network). It means you connect to a specific network (this is called tunneling). From this network you then access the internet. Every website you access is thus being accessed through this network. Inside this VPN you get a new IP address and this is where iPredator becomes interesting for say civil rights activists in coutries that heavily censor internet pages – like iranian, chinese, and soon german activists and journalists aswell. In case you are using Peer2Peer networks to download media files there is a good chance, your IP has already been logged by one of the firms persecuting copyright infringement worldwide.
Through your IP address you can be traced and for example ripped-off sued for copyright infringement – in Germany for example by a company called ProMedia (watch german Spiegel-TV article about ProMedia here). We will not delve into the doubtful business model of dinosaurs among the media companies, but all this comes to an end soon. All those persecuting companies will have to find a new business model as they will not be able to go after people loving music in the future anymore. And chinese, iranian, and german censorship will be able to be circumvented with just a click.
Please pay attention to the legal situation in your country, living in countries with censorship: be extremely cautious. If you are living in the western consumption penetrated countries: consider going to the concerts and buying music. Otherwise your artist will not be able to make music in the future. You’d better listen to more intelligent independent music anyway, instead of those distributed by slowly dieing dinosaur media companies.
In the end remember one thing: using VPN technology to camouflage your traces does not make downloading music from illegal sources legal. Don’t do that.
Say, do you wanna listen to musiq for free? Surely, everybody does. But in contrast to downloading albums illegally from Rapidshare, with “LastFM” and “imeem” it is legal to listen to music online. In general both services offer quite the same.
What is “imeem”?
The one little difference is that LastFM is now beginning to charge its users for allowing them to stream music to their clients. Only users from the U.S., U.K. and Germany seem to be excluded from this new business model. imeem in contrast to LastFM is still free. Anyway for playing songs at the full length on imeem a free registration is required. Luckily the registration process at imeem really takes some seconds and only requires your surename, forename, email-address, password and birthdate. Without registration only 30 seconds of the songs are being played (see our precompiled playlist at the bottom of this article). Some background information about imeem can be found here.

There is also an iPhone and an Android application available to use imeem’s services from our Jesus phones. Get imeem’s iPhone app for free on the AppStore. Information about the Android application can be found here.
