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.

Barry 7's Connectors: 21 Rare Library Tracks

This was a great find I recently came across at the local used music shop. This disc features a compilation of library music from the libraries of of Chappel, Southern & PIL. The compiler of these tracks is none other than Barry 7, formerly of the analog synth force of nature Add N to (X) and currently of the supergroup Lung, Rotter & Seven which features Barry alongside Lung and Chris Rotter of Tokyo Windbag. [Lung, Rotter & Seven exclusively make tracks utilizing the Korg DS-10 application on three seperate Nintendo Ds systems...interesting stuff to be heard following that link]

The sounds on this disc are as eclectic as a library music compilation should be. Some tracks have a lounge vibe, some are fascinating soundscapes of electronic experimentation, and some are simply enjoyable and melodic compositions by too often overlooked artists. This compilation is a lot of fun and I hope you fellow Digital Meltd0wners will enjoy it.

Also, while I'm sure most of you are already aware of it, if you dig library music I cannot suggest a better blog than The Library Hunt.

Enough of my blabber and linking. Enjoy this compilation!
