I posted this up yonks ago - buts its hidden in the depths of the archives now, so I thought it might be an idea to brush the cobwebs off and add it to the sidebar:

The mixes featured on weareie are produced and distributed in the spirit of promoting interest and further exploration of the music in question, and not for exploitation for profit or personal gain. Weareie does not charge for mixes, makes absolutely no money from its activities, and pays an annual fee for hosting said material. The contributors to weareie are DJs, writers and producers who have spent over a decade promoting the music they love in print, on FM radio and in clubs, and this blog is the logical extension of this process. Furthermore, weareie believes that presenting music in 'mixed' form rather than distributing individual tracks and LP's constitutes a valid 'transformation' from the original material, and, as such does not fall directly under the banner of 'illegal distribution'.

Weareie sympathises with artists who feel they have lost income due to illegal distribution of their work on the internet. If you are an artist whose work has been featured on one of our mixes and you're not happy about it - please feel free to contact us - and If we cant work something out, the offending article will be removed.

So to sum up:
  • Our intention is to promote music not to exploit it.
  • We do it 'all for the love y'all' and make no profit from this blog.
  • The music we distribute is in a 'transformed' state. (sometimes beyond recognition)
  • If you still think we're ripping you off - contact us and we'll take down the offending article if necessary.

But just to be sound - we'll give you 50 % (!!) of all profits - which = 0 euro,0 cents so far.

Howdy. Good thing i came accross this site u have some pretty good mixes. I need your advice. I'm after jungle that is similar to say... prodigy's experience album. Early 90s or more towards the jungle that has breakdowns where a nice happy string line is accompanied by a piano riff and then all brought in for the peak. I'm not too sure if u've heard Bong Ra's (Deathsucker Rave) but thats pretty much the sorta stuff im after. Any Help would be appreciated. Keep up the good work...
