Welcome

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.

Umar Bin Hassan - Be Bop or Be Dead (1993 - 320Kbps)



 Been going crazy trying to re-upload a bunch of dead files. Decided to do everyone (mostly myself) a favor & make a NEW post.

Here’s some out-of-print heavy funk by the former Last Poets member Umar Bin Hassan.

It was released in 1993 on the now defunct Axiom Records label.  It features some great funk/soul luminaries: Bootsy Collins; Fuday Musa Suso; Bill Laswell; Bernie Worrel; & Buddy Miles among others.

The first track “… Scared of Revolution” has a great Gil Scott-Heron “Revolution Will Not Be Televised” vibe, as good or better. This release is a true over-looked classic that has somehow remained relatively obscure. The fact that it is out of print attests to that fact.

Year of Release: 1993
Label: Axiom 74321 153762
Genre: Funk

Tracklist:
Niggers are Scared of Revolution
Am
Bum Rush
This is Madness
Malcolm
Pop
Love
40 Deuce Street
Personal Things
This is Madness (metal mix)

to Mr. Banstead,

Glad that link worked. I think the problem with the freakshare link was my fault. I think I entered it incorrectly. Sorry, but happy things are okay now.

thankyou for new link, is interesting to check out different stuff never heard of before. Not exactly my thing, is still cool. Forty Deuce St, Madness are pretty good. Poetic reading type lyrics remind of free jazz. thanks again.
