Created by Synthetix, this is a site intended to bring the mass listening audience up to speed on whats going on with some of my favorite musical genres : electro, miami-bass, breakbeat, glitch, experimental, and others. This site will contain regular postings of dj sets, sound- scape sessions, experiments, or live audio from various sources. Whether its a boomin 808, glitchy tech sound, funky ghetto rhythm, or just sound you can’t quite put your finger on, it will all be here. Get up and dance, sit back relax, plan to take over the world, or have some mind-blowing sex, this site is meant to be the soundtrack to all these and more. NJOY.
