Listened to it six times or so now on BandCamp. Holy shit, everyone brought their A-game. Really a killer assemblage.

Good call zin. I think even Otomo would like this production.

Ʌ - The Colonel At Sunset ♥♥♥
was quite a nice listen overall for sure.....but that was the standout for me. probably cos i slept 3 hours last night and im really baked haha.
ps - not wanting to be a little bitch but this forum isnt so good at involving new members. because i asked in this thread a few weeks back if you were still accepting demos. the description said it had moved deadline to mid may but didnt specify a date. as i didnt get a response i didnt bother making anything incase was too late.

just a though anyhow, no offence or trolling intended haha

Best thing is that Ghettoscraper didn't even plan a track for this compilation, but after he heard the whole lot he made this monster remix of Kaneda. Proper bbanger. I'm also really happy about the "as yet unknown" faces : KROCE, Faith In The Glitch, BLΔCKSLΣΣP, Vandalaze and SKVLL P/\R†Y. Really looking forward to their new stuff (some of them don't even have a soundcloud/bandcamp/etc).

Ps. Skvll actually just made a mix that is really goooood, check it out: http://soundcloud.com/skvllparty/summer ... n-mix-tape

I agree with MCLL, everyone really brought their A game. From a cynical objective perspective I think the whole thing feels like an official Akira soundtrack release for the modern day. Your arrangement of the tracks in the order you felt worked best was a stroke of genius.

And I was delightfully surprised to see Arc(one of my absolute favorite of the new era of underground dark indie acts)
contribute to this.

Not going to lie, it was MCLL bringing me to this thread a few months ago that helped further inspire me and the work I was beginning.

Amazingly solid from start to finish. It's wonderful to see such a coherent collaboration between so many different artists. I would pay beaucoup bucks for a physical release. Props to everyone involved!

Try PMing zin next time. There have been times on this forum where I wrote things that got overlooked as well. Mofo's r busy, I can relate. Sending private messages works much better on these big threads.
