About us.

Black Smoke is a Net label located on

Møkster, a tiny island outside Bergen, Norway.

We are at the moment focusing on

pop/rock/electro/ instrumental music.

We give you Full CD quality WAV files +

FLAC, M4A (Apple Lossless) and  MP3 for free.

We give away the music because our experience with low profile independent music is that there’s not much money to make from it, rather the opposite.

Not everyone can expect to make money from their music.

Our artists record most of their music themselves,

so you can look at it as a not so very expensive enterprise.

We also support our local independent record store ROBOT in Bergen, Norway, where you can buy home made copies of some of our releases.


This site is 100% wind powered.


Regards,

The Black Smoke Folk

Beta Man is a continuation of Summen.

Summen is no more...

The album is much more minimalistic than Summen’s

two albums. It’s more in the vein of Monopot and Rally.

We’ll keep you updated.

We have also downgraded the website.

The “listen first” pages is now only in QuickTime.

We used Flash player links from SoundCloud before, but for

many reasons we had to remove them.

This may cause problems for some Windows and

Linux users. Sorry. We will correct this if we ever learn

how to make Flash music players.

We’re back after a long winter.

Nothing much has happened here this year,

something came up...

What we have done, is learned a little bit about CDR’s.

We now know that there are good and bad quality CDR’s,

especially when it comes to longevity.

We are now using TAIYO YUDEN printable CDR’s

which is supposed to be among the best you can get.

We have sent replacement CD’s to all

who bought the old ones.
