    DJ Sean Timothy has been a DJ since 1997 and a producer since 2002. This is an awesome electro/breakbeat tune he put up on his Soundcloud. Grab it for free, and if you dig it, throw him some scratch for the tune over on Beats Digital. If I wasn’t so damn broke, I sure would…

    Artist: Old Comics Heroes
    Release: N/A
    Label: N/A
    Old Comics Heroes is an Italian duo consisting of Daniele Balzano (Live Performer) and Antonio Santoro (DJ/Producer). They say their sound is part vintage, part alternative, and I have to agree. All of their music is done with physical instruments such as the Korg MS2000, Microkorg Xl, Korg Electribe Sx & Mx. You can grab this one from Soundcloud.
  3. Title: Digital Love (Quantazellified Mix)
    Artist: Daft Punk
    Release: N/A

    Another great unreleased track by Quantazelle. This time she remixes Daft Punk, and it’s absolutely brilliant. Check out her live mix at Subterranean for more awesomeness (including this track), or grab the track individually from Soundcloud.

    Artist: William Orbit
    Release: Hello Waveform
    Label: Sanctuary Records
    We all know who William Orbit is. He put up this tune to promote his “Hello Waveforms” release on Sanctuary Records. Grab it free from his website. Looks like it worked. 🙂

    RJ Chevalier, aka Russell Knight, delivers this week with a short but sweet eletropop tune, with beautiful vocals by Megaga. Check out the tune on Soundcloud.
  6. Title: Cauliflower Clouds
    Artist: DJ Arclight (aka Zaxus)
    Release: N/A
    Label: N/A
    Well, I thought I’d finally feature myself on my podcast. It won’t happen often, I promise. This is an experimental remix of a piano track done for CCMixter. Just put the headphones on, close your eyes, and let go. Grab the tune from CCMixter.
