For years, our music has been easy to hear but hard to find. Certain recordings never made it further than the studio door. Those that did are confined to old, scratched, inferior quality vinyl slowly crumbling to dust in the darkest recesses of people's record collections. The message within the music is timeless: Its totally plausible that its effect will be just as potent and life changing on newer generations of young people as it was in its beginnings, now several years past.
When a signal is transmitted, it needs to communicate with certain nodes across its trajectory that maintains its strength and clarity. When these nodes become worn out or corrupted, the diffusion of the signal is compromised, and until this is rectified, there is a constant danger of the source signal being lost to the white noise of obscurity. This is what seems to be happening now, so our mission is to repair and replace those nodes so as to facilitate transmission of our message.
Appropriate measures need to be undertaken if the message in the music of Network23 is to stay fit and strong. We therefore see fit to re-master and re-release earlier works, benefiting from the superior quality and expertise today's technology and their users can provide so that they may be broadcast to today's electronic children without appearing dated. This generation were too young to enjoy the benefits of the early days in the "free" electronic scene e.g.: the first forays into live improvised electronic dance music, parties and festivals that went on for days on end, lesser oppression by the powers that be etc, but the music, being in a class all its own, will never tire, if we take care to preserve its identity.
There will be a time again... we said. 10 years on: that time is NOW.
