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.

This is really incredible- I don't think I ever would have found it if it weren't for this post. Thanks for sharing this.

Also- I too have been following the course of the protests in the Middle East very closely every day, and I really appreciate this series of posts that you're doing to mirror the aspirations of so many millions of our brothers and sisters. What a great way to share in their hopes of a better future- through sharing the music of some of their most progressive and daring musicians.

I think Black Theama is a particularly poignant choice.

Excellent post NØ. As maestro mentioned above, I think this is a particularly poignant choice, not to mention that judging by your description, this sounds as if it is going to be amazing. I'm off to download and listen to it now. Thank you.

I forgot to comment on the recent events in Egypt. I have to admit that I'm a bit cynical when it comes to situations such as this. Normally I would say that it is never a good thing for the military to hold power within a country. However, I have had complete faith in the Egyptians since the protests first started. Even when many political analysts were saying that it would be impossible for the Egyptians to carry out a revolution similar to the Tunisians, I kept faith that they would. Not only were they able to pull it off, they required fewer days to do so.

I do not trust the military. While many praised their actions (or inaction) during the protests, I think they failed to act in the best interest of the protestors. Sure, there were some emotional moments shared by individual Egyptian troops and protesters, but they were obviously acting on orders to attempt to dissuade the protesters also.

I think the military realizes they have a beast on their hands that they are unable to control in the form of the revolutionary movement though. I believe they will fulfill their promise to hand over power to a civilian government, fair elections will be held, and the constitution will be reformed or entirely re-written.

I only hope that I'm not proven wrong.
