More Download Options

Posted in Uncategorized on July 23, 2011 by datacide

It was quite hesitantly that we at Praxis started “selling” files. The way things developed in the last few years it seemed to become inevitable to offer high quality downloads for sale as more and more DJ’s in the field of electronic dance music started playing files from their laptops rather than vinyl. For years we had mp3’s available for free download on the c8 site considering them to be a possibility to check out the tracks before buying them on vinyl, or not. These were most of the time vinyl rips at a modest quality.
Eventually, belatetly compared to more commercially minded labels (in late 2009) – we decided – after receiving many requests – to make available high quality files directly from the masters. Looking out for a suitable platform we chose, because they seemed to offer the best deal for artists and labels. A good year and a half later however, we had to take stock and decide to either expand the download possibilities or abandon them altogether. For this reason we slightly expanded the options of purchasing Praxis, Sub/Version and related audio as downloads and in the process supporting labels and artists. was added as one option as a more established platform, mainly because via juno, tracks would also become available directly via
in addition to this we added another independent download store via which again offers some interesting other options. So from now on you can check out our digital offers through the following platforms:
or Praxis or Sub/Version

C8 forums back in action !?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on July 21, 2011 by datacide is a platform for “dark sick music” that exists since the mid-90’s, hosting numerous web sites of labels, musicians and activists associated with “breakcore” and other forms of radical electronic music coming out of the underground scenes of that era.
Praxis has always been closely associated with the c8 cluster, the web site (as well as being hosted there as well as many other labels and distros.
However c8 was always more than just a server to host sites, early on it was also a mailing list, then eventually the premium forum for discussion and dispute for all kinds of things related to “breakcore”.
After a downtime of several months (if not longer…) it has finally been cleaned up (from spam-bots) and is there to be used again.
