Ashbrg aka Aleix Pitarch is a founding member of the Hamsterloco collective/netlabel and is one of those netaudio enthusiasts Applejux met outside the web: the so-called real world. Aleix Pitarch believes in the need to create a community, meet, exchange experiences and continue spreading the learning experience. If you want to know more about this group, the phlow.es team wrote a feature post titled "¿Dónde esta el Hamsterloco?", "Where's the Crazy Hamster?".
This year's CC netaudio moment is quite funny... The IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry) advised us to remove a www.hamsterloco.com release because - according to their criteria -, it was sampling one of their artists. The truth was that, the targeted track had been produced with a synthesizer and some random parameters. Therefore couldn't host anyones' samples!
