Important announcement from the staff of Weimar Dancefloor

During the last couple of weeks we have received two notifications regarding copyright infringements. These claims were made by IFPI (The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry) and resulted in a bundle of songs being taken down by the tumblr staff.

There will be no new tracks posted until we have sorted this situation out.

Weimar Dancefloor does not support illegal sharing, downloading or copying of music, nor do we participate in such activities. All our material is from our physical record collections, from sources we’ve received from bands and artists themselves, downloaded from legal sources (such as Soundcloud), etc. Weimar Dancefloor does not provide or share music with anyone, publicly nor privately. The few download links we have provided contain legally shared music by the artists or record companies themselves.

All copyrights belong to their respective owners.

We will try to contact the tumblr staff in order to sort this situation out. But, if we can’t find a solution to these DMCA claims, we will not continue our work with Weimar Dancefloor in its current form.

We started this blog in order to share good tunes with our fellow music geeks without sharing files illegally. It is a matter of utmost importance for us to respect both the artists and the immaterial rights and laws concerning sharing music online. Because of this, these claims and the mere thought of having to shut Weimar Dancefloor down are incredibly saddening to both of us. We will keep you informed about the situation, and we promise to work a solution out as quickly as we can.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Anonymous sent: Inspired by the past holiday, may I request "Murder of Love" by Propaganda? Let it not be said that romance is dead ;)

Sure! Thanks for your request! 

I’ll try to upload all the requests in the next few weeks.

Anonymous sent: It’s a stupid question, but where does the blog’s name come from?

Actually, I have no idea. I think it just came up when O. and I were brainstorming and discussing what this blog would eventually be like and then it just stuck. 

(O. may correct me if he remembers any better.)

edit: I’m overwhelmed by the amount of asks and messages that we have received in the last couple months. I can’t believe that Weimar Dancefloor is only 10 followers short from 800. Thank you so much!

And I really, really like answering your questions and requests, so keep them coming! 

warm-insides sent: Amazing blog you have here. Glad I found it.

Thank you so much! Glad you enjoy us!

Anonymous sent: May I request Sopor Aeternus's "A Strange Thing To Say" and/or "Consolatrix Has Left The Building"? I don't know if they're too recent to be part of the beautiful collection you have here. Thank you for sharing your marvellous taste with the Tumblr community, I have found wonderful music here that I wouldn't have known otherwise. You're the sweetest admins I've read, too!

Thank you for your request and kind words! I don’t have those exact songs in my collection but I’ll try to dig them up from somewhere. That might take some time since I’m managing the blog by myself at the moment.

O. will return from China with vengeance sometime in March, so expect loads of new music then. And maybe I’ll come up with something exciting before that.

Anonymous sent: Absolutely amazing blog, I feel fortunate to have stumbled upon it. The mixture of worldly gems you have here is a true sonic pleasure, keep up the great work, I look forward to hearing more, thank you!

Thank you so much! ~ neopatra

hhillfolk sent: Hey buddy do you have any Hefty Load you could pm me? I was going to buy the LP but its pretty steep.

Sorry, but we at Weimar Dancefloor have a policy for not sharing music for private use. Hefty Load is property of Johanna Kustannus, and therefor we do not find it appropriate to share their music online.

Anonymous sent: I know it'd probably be exhausting, but I was wondering if you could also make an artist index, or a genre index, like the country masterpost you have. It's only a suggestion, I know that going through all the pages and doing this would be tiring. This is the best music blog on Tumblr, btw. You're doing a great job with it.

That is quite a good suggestion, and may not actually be all that difficult to execute either, thanks to our manic tagging triage!

And thank you so much for your kind words! I’m still not quite used to people holding Weimar Dancefloor in such high regard, and I believe neither neopatra or I believed a status like this could be achievable when we decided to create our little blog dedicated to darker music geekdom. It feels amazing, and one of the things I am looking forward to the most when I get back to Finland is to start updating Weimar Dancefloor properly again. I could say that I have a bunch of whole new stuff up my sleeve just waiting to be uploaded for all you wonderful people to listen to!

So, see you back in March! Also, happy Holidays while we’re at it! Thank you all for all the positive feedback and support you’ve given us all the way since the beginning!
