This and mary anne hobbs wild angels comp hold a special place in my heart, they are what got me into electronic music, which will most likely be a lifelong love affair and a perpetual drain on my wallet. If anyone has an extra cd that isnt super fucked, hit me up with a reasonable offer (condition, rarity taken into account,) scalpers gets no love.

Gave it a 5 just for Deastro's track.

I'm a fan of [adult swim]'s little interludes w/ music, and had been keeping an eye out for the music in case it got released in some obtainable form. Noticing this label (and it's easily accessible digital releases), I downloaded a bit, and was pleasantly surprised by this release. Not so much with the African and Def Swims, but that's for another review I suppose.

Some of this follows the instrumental hiphop standard (Dabrye, FLYamSAM), some of it's more drawn-out mellow downtempo (10:32, Milosh), some IDM (Cepia, Dark Party), chiptune? (Aeroc), and some of it's less-classifiable (Deastro, The Chap). All around good sampler for headphone oriented electronic music. Still not sure if it's the music they actually use on the TV channel, but it's close enough for the moment....

Recommended tracks: Blue Little, Light Powered, Traffickers.

Edit: I posted this a little over two years ago, and the tune that's stood the test of time the best would have to be Traffickers. Maybe it's just because it's similar to what I listen to regularly, but I often come back to it for a good loud roll out. My only lament is the 256kbps quality is a little lacking at the top.
