Furry music netlabel Fuzznet Music launches, aims to support furry musicians

The furry media landscape is small, but that has not stopped furries from bringing up initiatives to help develop and improve it for the fandom. Just recently, a fandom-grown internet music label by the name of Fuzznet Music has launched with the aim to support furry musicians.

Self-proclaimed to be the world’s first furry music label, it offers musicians of the furry fandom a pathway to get their works seen, as well as a platform to mutually collaborate with and learn from each other, and above all to support their growth.

With that, let’s now be connected with the creator of Fuzznet Music, Finn Raccoon;

So Finn, I would like to know more about this netlabel you got there. Can you tell us more about it?

Fuzznet Music is only another branch of my already existing Fuzznet “brand” (I still honestly don’t quite know what to call it but that’s pretty much what it is). Fuzznet itself is meant to be a growing hub for all things furry. I started with my own things like art and videos, and slowly expanded on it with blogs, curated projects, group chats and various little bits on Twitter.

Now the music branch is the most recent and so far biggest project yet. The inspiration behind it is the fact that any media in the fandom that isn’t visual (say Artworks and Animation) is kind of almost ignored or at least only exists in the shadows.

But there is a lot of incredibly talented furries making music, so this netlabel is meant to unite the talent under one roof and combine it with proper marketing and official distribution. Working together and releasing as a team on unified platforms in the end benefits everyone on board better than being scattered all over. 🙂

We don’t aim for a specific style or genre, but rather take in anyone that fits streaming requirements, sounds cool and wants to join. We define “Furry music” as anything that is made by furries, although there are a few furries who make songs with lyrics specifically tailored to furries, too.

The idea is, by having all on board under one roof, if someone finds a song by our label on our profile the chances are high that they might check out the other albums and artists available which results in somewhat of a snowball effect. So far, that has been the case.

What motivated you to start this netlabel?

Music is one of, if not THE most underrated and ignored creative section of the furry community. This is explainable by the fact that from all categories of creativity, music is far away from what you think of first when thinking about furries.

For the most part, if it weren’t for furry album covers, oddly fursona-like name or occasional lyrics, there isn’t anything to really connect the dots. Due to this, furry musicians have it especially hard. The “normie” side of the music industry is already saturated enough, and the furry side doesn’t pay enough attention to things that aren’t cool cartoon animals.

What do you hope to achieve with this platform?

I think “Time will tell” fits best here. We’re still getting comfortable just launching and promoting music (I might add we also officially curate songs and artist that aren’t in Fuzznet via Spotify Playlists consisting only of Furry Musicians of various genres that are displayed on our Profile).

Although we already have one small “gig” so to say offering a few of our tracks to an upcoming furry-themed Minecraft con/event that has DJs playing live music. Doing similar things in the future definitely is something I’ll keeping looking into.Currently there’s only me and the artists. As of now we have 25 artists on board, but when it comes to anything label related I do almost everything by myself. However we do communicate via our own chat group and frequently exchange ideas, opinions and updates.

Our main links are http://fuzznet.world/music (landing page) and http://music.fuzznet.world (streaming links).

Both pages include all the information about us, release dates, artists and social media links. We focus our main efforts on Spotify, as that one is the globally biggest platform to work with. For our Furry Musician playlists (for ALL furry musicians, in or outside of Fuzznet) we have http://playlists.fuzznet.world. My main homepage is http://fuzznet.world where you’ll find all the various other projects I have to offer.

Thank you Finn for joining us on the programme.

The netlabel so far has more than 25 artists and 160 songs published under their name and is available on 10 online platforms.


兽圈造网络唱片厂牌 Fuzznet Music 正式成立,以支持兽圈音乐作家为目标

兽圈媒体环境是小,不过这并没有阻止毛兽们提出倡议帮助兽圈将其给改善及发展化。近日,一个毛兽网络唱片厂牌Fuzznet Music以支持毛兽音乐家为目标而正式成立。

其自称是世界首个毛兽唱片厂牌,为兽圈内的音乐作家们提供了一个使他们能推广作品,与其他音乐家们互相合作学习,以及重要的是成长的途径。

现在,让我们与Fuzznet Music的创建者浣熊芬恩(Finn Raccoon)联系。

那么,芬恩,我想知道更多关于你的这个网络标签。你能告诉我们更多关于它的情况吗?

Fuzznet Music只是我已经存在的Fuzznet “品牌 “的另一个分支(老实说,我仍然不知道该怎么称呼它,但这差不多就是它了)。

Fuzznet本身是为了成为所有兽圈音乐的成长中心。我起初从自己的艺术和视频开始,然后慢慢地用博客、策划的项目、小组聊天和推特上的各种工具来扩展它。

现在,音乐分支是最新的,也是迄今为止最大的项目。它背后的灵感来自这个事实:兽圈中任何不属视觉的媒体(例如艺术品和动画)几乎被忽视,或至少只存在于阴影中。

但是有很多令人感叹的有才华的兽友们在做音乐,所以此网络标签是为了把这些人才团结在一个屋檐下,并与适当的营销和官方发行相结合。

作为一个团队合作并发行在统一的平台上,最终会利于所有合作方,而不是被四处分散。 🙂

我们不以特定的风格或流派为目标,而是吸纳任何符合流媒要求、很酷、有兴趣加入的人。尽管有些兽友作了专针对兽圈的歌,我们把“兽圈音乐”定义为任何由兽友制作的音乐,。

这主要旨在把所有人放在一个屋檐下。这样如果有人发现本牌的歌曲,他们有可能会参观其他专辑和艺术家,从而产生某种雪球效应。截至目前,情况就是这样。

是什么促使你开始这个网络厂牌?

音乐是兽圈中最被低估和忽视的创艺之一。这可以解释,因为在所有创艺类别中,音乐与你想到兽圈时首先想到的东西相去甚远。

大致上,如果不是因为兽友们的专辑封面,奇怪的类似兽设的名字或偶尔出现的(福瑞)歌词,真的没有东西可把它们联系起来。

由于这个原因,福瑞音乐家们的处境特别艰难。音乐行业的 “正常人 “已经够饱和了,而福瑞对那些不是很酷的卡通动物的东西给予了不够关注。

你希望通过这个平台达到什么目的?

我认为 “时间会证明一切 “在此最适用。我们仍在适应刚刚推出和推广的音乐(我补充,我们还通过Spotify播放列表正式策划了Fuzznet中没歌曲和艺术家,这些列表只由各种类型的福瑞音乐家组成,其在我们的简介中显示)。

虽然我们已有个小”演出”,这是为将到来的福瑞Minecraft活动提供一些我们的曲目,他们有在现场演奏音乐的DJ。

将来我会继续策划做类似事情。到目前为止,我们有25位艺术家,但当涉及任何厂牌的事时,我几乎都是一人秀。然而,我们有在自己的聊天组里沟通,并经常交流想法、意见和更新。

我们的主要链接是http://fuzznet.world/music(登陆页面)和http://music.fuzznet.world(流媒体链接)。

这两个页面包括所有关于我们的信息、发行日期、艺术家和社会媒体链接。我们把主要精力放在Spotify上,因为它是全球最大的合作平台。

对于我们的福瑞音乐家播放列表(都是为所有在Fuzznet内外的福瑞音乐家),我们有http://playlists.fuzznet.world。我的主要主页是http://fuzznet.world,在那里你会发现我所提供的所有其他各种项目。

感谢芬恩加入我们的节目。

至今,该厂牌有超过25只音乐作家,及在10个平台上发布的160首以它们的名字出版的歌曲。
