This id3-tag bit is almost derailing this thread's content (New topic, moderators?) - but to keep it short and non-geeky
(just to keep this thread concentrated and focused on cool mixes):
Markus actually held the key to solution on the last.fm "id3-tag"-mystery!
Apparently tagging the file(s) with "Various Artists" is what made last.fm's scrobbling kack!
However, id3-labeling the "Artist" as (in this case) "V/A - datamixed by dee3" (as Markus did/does) works just fine!
Mystery solved - "Scooby 'n' Shaggy"-mode: OFF..
Unfortunately, as v7.0 (plus it's predecessors) are currently getting DL'ed between 100-500 times per day,
I'm not all that keen on re-upping the files at the moment (with the the downtime that'd entail).
But this will be corrected at some point, though...
However, if there are any of you that've already downloaded v7.0 (or any of the other sets),
and what it to appear scrobbled on last.fm after you've played it, then re-dub the artist id3-tag to:
"V/A - datamixed by dee3"
...and as stated, please - and please do NOT screw around with any other tags;
some of the artists and labels involved might get all jittery, if they see a "different" set online.
BTW, Markus - regarding v4.0: the "[RE-COMPILED]"-labelling gets scrobbled, so...
To Bitley: gmail on it's way to you, but "Yes" - sorta guilty as charged; I think the more correct expression is "flat" than "hollow".
But I know what you mean...
Now, in a feeble attempt to get this thread back on track:
That's right - Stuart 'n' Orde are at it again...!

Pretty good sets, actually...
CaN: podcast-/RSS-feed updated...!
First of all, on behalf of the contributing artists and labels involved in CaN v7.0 (not to also mention myself),
I’d like to say thanks a lot for the (continuing) interest there’s been in CaN v7.0!
In spite of apparently some technical issues at archive.org (again!), the set has to date already been DL’ed +11000 times!
Anyway, there’s been some minor changes regarding the XML-file, which "powers" the podcast- and RSS 2.0-feed:
1. All mp3-versions of the (currently) seven sets online are now 192kbps VBR (still using LAME, mind),
instead of the previously used 192kbps CBR compression.
Please note that the 192kbps VBR versions of the sets will from now on be the standard mp3-format for the CaN-series.
The reason for this change is to minimize the server-load, accelerate the DL-time(s) for the users and ensure an audio-quality,
which is at least up to par with the previous CBR-versions of the sets used so far.
However, the torrent-delivered versions of the sets will still remain to be in 192kbps CBR, though.
This being due to practical reasons.
Just to keep you all in the loop - thanks for reading this...!
