Hepcat - Right on Time [1998]

Those Sennheiser CX400s (which I spoke of in a previous post about earbud shopping) turned out to be crap. So back to the drawing board it was, which lead me to the Kicker EB141 Earbuds. Now these are a superior product. A little more expensive-- granted-- but substantially clearer sound quality, and bass response like you read about. Not the most comfortable things I've ever worn, so the quest for the perfect earbud will continue once these blow out.

Fabriclive 29 - Mixed by Cut Copy

This is a DJ mix compilation by synthpop Australian duo Cut Copy. Included in this full range of remixes, you'll hear the familiar sounds of Daft Punk, Justice, Soulwax, Mstrkrft, The Faint, Goldfrappe, Daniel Diamond, Joakim, Riot in Belgium-- or maybe none of this you recognize. Guess there's only one way to find out...

Burial - Untrue [2007]

Welcome to Dubstep (Trance, on heroin). Burial's second studio release, Untrue, is one of the darkest, spookiest, most hypnotic displays of inner city drool to come out of Hyperdub (that I've heard anyways). It's rain soaked, bullet laden, post-apocolyptic, depraved- and worth listening to a hundred times over.
