So I was delighted to received a commendation for Archaic Horizon from a friend and music producer Bluefood several weeks ago.  I knew that […]

At once energetic, ambient, and brimming with both field recordings and original sounds, the appeal of Danseizure’s LP “This is Danseizure” lies in his ability to grasp the ephemeral, detailed mystery of countless moments, all in the span of ten tracks.

I follow James Fahy’s music dairy closely, my only explanation for leaving his album slip through the net is having Christmas shenanigans with friends who came to visit me in Cambodia.

Random Access Recordings - Invisible Agent Netlabel Tracker

Netlabel Tracker #8: Random Access Recordings

The netlabel tracker continues its endless quest in search of quality netlabels that are active and innovative. I’m concentrating hard to spread the tracker across as many genres as possible and encompasses music with acoustic guitars as much as synthesized beeps and booms. After homing in on a particular label & genre I squeeze every last bit out of my Internet connection amassing the collections of quality and free music that are on offer. So far I’ve happily filled 10Gb of my hard drive with netaudio, no credit card needed to ride this train!
