running time: 17:05 min.

Some people collect records. Mitko is different – he collects artists.
Find out what drives the Dusted Wax Kingdom netlabel and meet one of the people
behind modern Trip-hop in this 17-minute short documentary.

The Dusted Wax Kingdom netlabel, based on the Black Sea coast in Varna, Bulgaria,
has been releasing Trip-hop music for over five years.
Everything they create is shared for free with their listeners,
spreading the love and passion for old-school samples and beats.

Some of them only do it for the fun; others are making great money
out of a new and unique business model.
Find out how they create, why they release their music independently
and what inspires them to keep going.

This is the first ever documentary film about a netlabel, made in Bulgaria.
It is released under a Creative Commons license.

The film looks at the digital phenomenon of netlabels,
using the Dusted Wax Kingdom as a case study.

It features a high quality, free, fully Creative Commons licensed Trip-hop soundtrack
with unique music from the netlabel.

Netlabels documentary – some notes

The project is still going, and I’ll be meeting Dimitar from the Dusted Wax Kingdom netlabel for a quick chat next week.

Here are a few questions that might be relevant to ask him and / or other people in the film:

– How exactly do you cut the samples / make music? What software do you use and how?

– What does your artistic name mean? Why DWK?

– Vinyl records vs. digital etc.?

– What do you think about the traditional music labels? What makes labels like DWK different? Is there a confrontation between the two?

– When and how did you start making music?

– Most important question: WHY?

– What’s next for you?
