Nearly 250 new exclusive DIY features appeared in IDIOTEQ in 2017. These included some of the last work by one of the most prolific and tasteful European hardcore labels Dingleberry, as well as dozens of their collaborators, with whom the label shared numerous notable releases. Below, the label’s owner Tim ‘Dingleberry’ assembled some highlights from his year in DIY music and we’re insanely proud to share it with you. Read up, see the rest of our end-of-the-year features, and feel free to share your picks in the comments section below.

Tim commented:

Karol asked me to put up some list for 2017 of records and artists worth mentioning, which is pretty hard to take a vote for myself cause I totally love all records I was allowed to be involved in with my label dingleberryrecords. A lot of stuff happend this year to me personally, I got married, started another label together with my wife (timtam records), lost 2 family members and other family members were in hospital after accidents and some serious sicknesses, so it was difficult for me to focus on release stuff and music at all as i was used to the years before and as I would have wanted to. I had to cancel or keep low on setting up shows and visiting festivals and shows so the list below represents the records of the dingleberry/timtam releases of this year I listened most to together with my wife while being on the road to visit sick family members, funerals and while recovering from that.

I consider myself very lucky to meet a lot of old and new friends this year considering the circumstances me and my wife were in this year. When thinking back we were very happy to have Paramnesia, Digger Barnes, Kokomo, Potence, Jeanne, Set And Setting, Respire, Love/Lust, Tapestry, Durga, 70cm3 Of Your Chest, Hyena, Emperor X, Christian Holden,Feroces, Wyatt E, Slow Crush and many other bands and people visiting and playing at AK44/Giessen this year. We had to cancel a bunch of shows/festivals visiting this year like 3 Affen, Uragano, Myteri, Etre, Miss The Stars Fest and bunch of others because of family reasons. We were supposed to meet a bunch of people like David of Zegema Beach, Arch of Ultimate Screamo Band, Shawn of Thisismenotthinkingofyou and a bunch of others (Nionde Plagan) etc. which hopefully will happen some day soon, we at least managed to meet shawn/coma regalia in Frankfurt which was about time!

We are starting 2018 with a bunch of tasks involving our families but still are looking forward to a great new year with hopefully more time to spend with setting up and visiting shows/festivals and a bunch of new releases coming up including Drei Affen, Coma Regalia, Seeyouspacecowboy, Boneflower, Hexis, Ancient Emblem, Kodos, Niboowin, Worst Days, Ultimate Screamo Band, Nevasca, VLAAR, Duct Hearts, Pilori, Dakhma, Lessener, Dry Mouths, Mrtex, Crowning, Love Channel and a bunch more of course.
