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.
I want to thank Zer0_II for bringing me on board to contribute to this blog regularly. It has been a great pleasure thus far and I am ecstatic about all the good and interesting music we'll be posting in 2011.
My first post for the new year is a great compliment to Zer0_II's previous post of Pulse of Events. This is a compilation culling 21 tracks from various library music labels, released on vinyl and CD by the German label Crippled Dick Hot Wax. It is an hour long groovy excursion into sixties and seventies cinema full of tracks that range from the energetic blaxploitation/cop show-esque, brass-heavy rock of John Cameron's "Crime Squad" to the laid back, loungey, & funky awesomeness that is "Name of the Game" by Alan Hawkshaw and Brian Bennett. The album is amazingly cohesive, with a flow that I find very impressive. If you need some tunes to make you feel like one cool MoFo, get this.
