Budoka, based in Darmstadt near Frankfurt in Germany, is a passionate music freak, producer, DJ, musician, occasional event promoter, co-owner of the defunct Drum & Bass label Tilt-Recordings, founding member of the Phishmaol Crew of (g)olden days (together with his brother DJ Malice, forgotten genius Rayman, veteran MC Santana and DJ Gargamel aka Tyrell aka world famous Techno producer Jens Zimmermann among others) and proffessional sound engineer at a public broadcasting radio station. He has been active as a DJ in the German Drum & Bass scene since the mid/late 1990s and was playing drums and guitar in a good number of bands from Hardcore/Metal/Punk to Reggae and Live-Hip Hop. He has also been busy in the studio producing Drum & Bass (mostly, but not only, technoid and dancefloor oriented), the occasional Techno/House tune and beats for the Hip Hop project Oberton together with his band and crew mate Eli MC (in 2003 they put out a 12" EP with six tunes via their own one-off label "Traumsoldaten Records").
Over the years Budoka has released 10 Drum & Bass tunes on eight 12" vinyl singles and five tunes digitally via Tilt-Recordings (all available as free mp3 downloads today), another tune on the infamous German Neurofunk label Protogen and one on .shadybrain (the first commercial digital Drum & Bass label). He has also put out 13 free tunes on T-FREE and one each on Silbarueckenbeatz Entertainment and the Future Forum Sampler 2010 plus another 3 (inofficially) via Tilt-Recordings. Several more are scheduled on Silbarueckenbeatz Entertainment, Delta 9 and T3K Recordings.

Internet Recordings is a free mp3 netlabel for various kinds and subgenres of Drum & Bass and for other interesting styles of electronic (dance) music.
Internet Recordings provides legal free music releases (= mp3 downloads) in random intervals. These mp3 downloads have catalogue numbers (www001, www002…) and a proper format including standardized file names and tags. The downloads are accompanied with file info, some basic information on the artists, links to their respective homepages or social network profiles (if available) and sometimes pictures or even artwork. However, the main focus is on music and information; the label does not even have a logo yet.
Internet Recordings is inspired by Drum & Bass netlabels such as Plain Audio, T-FREE, Exegene (R.I.P.), HMSU, Zardonic and the free tunes provided by Santorin, BBC 1 Extra and many artists on their own…
In our opinion, the internet leads to pretty much the end of commercial music distribution. This is because the post Millenium generation growing up with internet from their early childhood are not willing to pay for something they can also have for free… Therefore, netlabels are by default the legal music distributors of tomorrow.
All tunes released via Internet Recordings are published under a by-nc-nd Creative Commons License with consent of their respective producers. All the tunes can be played by DJs, used in mixes & DJ-sets, radioshows, on live events etc just like regular vinyl/CD/digital releases (but without the obligation to pay royalties to copyright collecting agencies). Furthermore, they can be shared and redistributed freely.
