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.

Sailin' On

I would like to thank Zer0_II and Digital Meltdown for the introduction and this great opportunity to guest blog. It's a privilege and I will try my best not to sink this ship. I guess now would be the time to tell you a bit about myself.

I'm a 22 year-old Rutgers University student, living about 30 minutes outside of New York City. I am majoring in journalism and plan to further my education by going for my Masters this fall. I was born in Munich, Germany and lived there for the early part of my life before moving to the United States. I still love Germany very much and try to visit my relatives there at least once a year. I have written for a few webzines, guest blogged, and even at times maintained blogs of my own for about 6 or 7 years now. I have done summer internships for the New York Times and the New York Mets (as a stat tracker.) Unfortunately, my free time has been limited, largely due to balancing between work, school, and friends; therefore, I have retired my past blogs.

Again, I am grateful for this opportunity to break up the monotonous approach to journalism in my life and hopefully share some great music with you guys this week. If you are interested below are a few of my contact links.

Thanks, Dee Tox. I shall try and do my best. :P If I fail miserably, I may hit the sauce pretty hard and soon find myself on a detox diet. :P
