elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth.
Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post.
In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.
With all of my attention focused on the big move that I am about to make, I almost forgot that this month marks the 3rd anniversary of the blog. Although three years isn't a long time in the real world, I consider this a major accomplishment for a music blog, as they tend to come and go like the wind. I have witnessed numerous blogs either abandoned by their owners, or shut down after being reported. Even blogs that exclusively share out of print content have fallen victim to this and decided to call it quits as a result. It's rare for a music blog to last more than a couple of years, and I'm thankful that DM has been one of the few.
Running this blog has been a great experience for me. I have learned more about music than I ever thought I would, thanks to all of the visitors who have left comments, as well as the people who have participated as guest bloggers. I have also been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to meet people from all around the world, which has to be one of my favorite things about running this blog.
I would like to thank everyone who has helped make it possible to keep DM going these last three years. First and foremost I want to thank all who have visited this blog during that time. I'm sure if I would have kept my hit counter up it would have passed the one million visitor milestone a long time ago. I do this for all of you, for without your presence there would be no point in sharing music. I also want to thank everyone who has contributed here throughout the years. You know who you are. You all have helped keep this blog going during the most difficult times in my life, and the blog wouldn't have been able to last this long without your help.
Happy Birthday Digital Meltd0wn. Here's to three more years of sharing kick ass underground music. Cheers...
