What’s this, 2006?

Monday, January 9th, 2006

I think every January I have trouble remembering it’s the new year. I have corrected myself writing 2005 instead of 2006 at least 100 times already – am I really am not exaggerating. Why is that? Maybe its because you’d think a new year would be a heaping change but in reality its the same as going from Sunday to Monday. I guess it’s like jet-lag, after a while you just get used to it.

Now, moving on to other things, I’m quite pleased to announce that I’ve been featured in the excellect Dave’s Lounge podcast (Podcast #30). This podcast, created by Dave features some of the best chillout, downtempo / trip-hop out on the net. All of it being “Pod-Safe”, meaning if you download it or broadcast it over the internet, you won’t be hunted down by anyone. (Unless it’s someone who’s really really big fan) Which brings me to letting you all know that my music is quite pod-safe. As long as it’s a non-commercial usage, I’d be real happy to know that someone enjoys my music enough to podcast, broadcast, write about, or share my music with someone else.

Time for a new entry

So it’s been some time since I’ve posted. Yeah, I know I should post more. I should also get more sleep and take my vitamins too. And eat my spinach and broccoli.. The last one’s no problem because I like to eat spinach and broccoli. Anyways I’d like to wish all the procrastinators out there a belated happy new year, even if it’s only about a week later. Actually though I’m not really much of a procrastinator, just really really busy.. it’s like I just sit in front of the computer and the hours just fly by. Two minutes later I look at the time and it’s been 6 hours! Then, the to-do list just gets pushed back even further.. it’s an uphill battle somedays. So, bear with me as I get re-organized for the new year, and use the RSS feature, it’ll let you know when I found a moment to write a little note up here for everyone to read.

One of my projects is to find other electronica artists (IDM, downtempo, breakbeat too) and post a quick profile of them in a daily blog that I call In-Tune. It’s actually one of the highlights of my week when I find a really really good artist. So, in the spirit of the new year and all the best of lists of 2005 and what not, here’s a quick list of the best of’s for 2005. The cool thing about this list (besides not having any order or numbers – it’s not a top 10) is that I’m just writing from the top of my head – So, if I can remember an artist from last march who was that memorable, you know they’re good! So here they are – Check ’em out if you have a minute. – Tycho, The artist formerly known as Airliner, The Great Mundane, The Subletter (and the whole catalog for Belladonna Records (Fomerly Kendra-Unique), CMY, Let’s Drive to Alaska, DoF, Quantazelle, enLounge, and Makkina / Cardinal Zen. Also, as soon as the CD is officially released, Fevertech
