A problem with having a slight obsession with music is that it can become a very expensive habit. I know that 90% of it is available, in some shape or form, for free via the web, but I like to support the artists I enjoy when and where possible. That being said, if you are not in a position to part with cash then there is a plethora of free music out there for your consumption. Granted some is not good, in fact some is terrible, but there are goodies to be found if you know where to look. A prime example of such a gem is the Label Love series. Vol. 1 was released back in the summer and now we have been blessed with Vol. 2. Feauturing music from labels such as Tru Thoughts, Ninja Tune, Plug Research, Melting Pot, One-Handed and Ubiquity, you know that you are guaranteed quality. Take a listen to two selections off of Label Love Vol. 2, Bilal's "Lost My Mind" and Ahu's "To:Love," then download the compilation via the Label Love Bandcamp page.
