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.

Thanks! Cant wait to give it a listen. You would probably love the 'Ghost in the Shell' soundtrack by Kenji Kawai. Very very cool soundtrack. One of my favorites. But for soundtrack music nothing is better than Peter Gabriels "Passion: The Last Temptation of Christ."

Wow! Being a fan of the movie from the very beginnings(the bike chase scene of the opening is probably one of the defining moments of my adult imagination), I've always been particularly fond of its off beat & contrasting music. However, I have to say that your explanation about the whole retuning of synths to work with gamelan music blew my mind. I knew nothing of that (I do know something about the Roland D-50 and it would indeed be somewhat difficult to use in those scales). And I do so love musicians who manage to turn material limitations around to create such fantastic soundscapes!

Thanks a lot for that info and for sharing this soundtrack.

You got me reeling now old friend as I have a handful of excellent early japanimation (anime?) from an old tenant to rip when I can find it in the stacks filling my new small-and-tall pantry at the new 1920's rental home. Oooo I see you have some new Goblin.."been away Floyd, been away."

@Willard: Thank you very much my friend. I appreciate the help more than you realize. I'll be contacting you shortly

@Anonymous Patrick: I hope you enjoy the soundtrack. Should you happen to read this, please drop back by and let me know how you liked it.
I'll be sure to check out the soundtracks to Ghost in the Shell and Passion. I haven't had the chance to listen to either. Thanks for the recommendations.

@Audiozobe: You're welcome for both the info and the soundtrack. I'm glad I could provide some enlightening information for you. I think it makes the soundtrack that much more enjoyable to know what lengths the group went to in order to create this amazing work of art. It's great to know someone else feels the same.

@Viacomclosedmedown: Are you referring to ripping the soundtracks, or the movies? If you plan on ripping any soundtracks I would love to hear them if you wouldn't mind passing them my way, or even if you just feel like passing on some recommendations that would be great.

If you need it, I can provide you with Ghost In The Shell 1 & 2 soundtracks, both in 320. Use my gmail contact if that's of interest to you.

@Audiozone: I would love to take you up on that offer, but I can't find a contact link to your gmail account. Could you help me out?

Audiozobe said...

Sorry about that - reach me at audiozobe(at)gmail(dot)com.

Hey Zero,

Love the Akira soundtrack! I find myself listening to it quite frequently now while I am working!
