active netlabels related to demoscene

category: general [glöplog]
I'm trying to compile a list of demoscene related netlabels who are still active, to include in my demobit presentation.

I have narrowed it down to these two lists.

Active netlabels with demoscene background:

Other labels with a demoscene / netlabel past but are no longer self-considered netlabels:

I'm sure i'm probably forgetting some, so if anyone can think of one missing from these lists would you kindly let me know so i can include them?

Some definitions, for clarification purposes:
- netlabel: a record label releasing online and free for download
- demoscene related: label founder or some of the label artists are demosceners
- active: had releases in 2016

I am not looking for sites of scene artists listing their releases on bandcamp, i know there are plenty of those, i'm only listing self-considered _netlabels_ in particular.

Possibly something for the second category, with Jester being one of the initial members:
Other iD artists have also played live at Evoke (e.g. Sudio) but I do not know about their exact relation to the demoscene.
moodsplateau.net!!! We are still active, no "music only" release since a long time though. Player requires flash. <- we should update this.

kittenrock is run by Jellica / Hack'n'Trade. Some scene-specific releases in there along with other chipscene artists.

BandCamp, ftw! :)

We have loads of artists there who supported the demoscene in 2016 (Kubbi, nervous_testpilot, Absolute Valentine, For Astronauts and Satellites, Tri Angles, NightStop, Danger Mode, Big Giant Circles and, of course, Chris Hülsbeck!)

iD.EOLOGY last activity was in 2013, doesn't apply.

BLEEPSTREET last activity was in 2015, also doesn't apply.

Data Airlines is commercial, fits the second category though.

dirtie: would be nice if your wordpress listed the date of each post and not just hour. very hard to tell when what was released :)

kittenrock definitely applies :)

Or maybe not the best example for your presentation :D too lazy. Maybe if I manage to have several releases thru 2017 you can add it next year :P

ggn: I think there are demosceners occasionally releasing into their compilations but all in all the chip scene is rather disconnected from the demoscene
http://kahvi.org offers some EPs and albums by demoscene musicians (not necessarily releasing under their demoscene nick there, though).

ggn: hard to say, there are some tracks from sceners there, but it's all mostly compilations, and can't recognize founder from the demoscene, think it's just videogame+chiptune side

tft: i thought of rno but noticed they been innactive :(

holid: yep, have them on the list
