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.
This compilation pays homage to the music of Peter Thomas, a German composer who was featured in my last "Sci-Fi September" post.
In the late nineties it seems that many musicians started to pay attention to Peter Thomas' work. Someone had the idea to make a remix album honoring his past work. Thomas dug up some samples and sent them out to a variety of artists to see what they would come up with. The album itself features two discs. The first disc features the remixes that were contributed by the chosen artists. The second disc is rather cool as it pulls back the curtain for the listener and lets us hear the original source material.
The music found on the album shows off the versatility of the source materials. One moment you are floating through Sterolab's "Blaue Milch" and pretty soon you are faced with the fuzz-filled Momus track "Dub in My Club" with a variety of twists and turns found throughout. An excellent and worthwhile compilation if you are willing to put in the time to listen.
