In an endeavor for change, WEATNU Records forms its net-label; while maintaining a strong standing in sales and streaming for artists.
This option of offering artists the means to release freely to archive.org is not a new one, but the original intent of #WEATNU as a movement from the beginning. It was realized that the dream could finally advance, due to recent changes in the music scene and the loss of profit for all artists in general. People just want to be heard, and creativity is lost due to big media, streaming and music stores taking their earnings.
We’ve always been a hope for the indie artist, as we continue through our 8th year.
There is still hope for the musician, because like before, they can be with other like-minded artists who just want to be heard. An artist can upload with us to streaming, Bandcamp, and now as an added option, free releases. No one is required to release their music for free, but also there is no profit included in free downloads for the fan or the label. That’s free ‘as in beer’, and this helps the spirit of musicianship for all who join.
In a scene that continues to be beaten down by big corp, and copyright scares, artists can freely make what they like, without facing objection, or correction.
That alone is a calm feeling for many.
Those who are part of our net-label will also be promoted through our social media channels and discord chat room, so all of our community can grow. Making us one with each other, WEATNU Records, Transmission Nova, IFMACA Productions and now this net-label option.
Follow us at our new location as we will be adding music for free download, and this may include already existing music from our Bandcamp page, direct to you, download or torrent. Archive.org is a place that isn’t utilized enough, but the free internet needs artists and labels to keep it going.

The phoenix rises from the ashes once more.
We are the New Underground is free, and we want artists to be heard.
