Blog Expanion/New Music for You

Well, lately I've been going through my iTunes library and listening to music that I hadn't listened to yet, or in a while so I could rate the songs properly. The reason I tell you this is because in doing so I've found some really good music that I'd like to share. The catch is it's not rock or metal. So I've been thinking about expanding this blog from just rock and metal to include electronic, dubstep, drum 'n bass, big beat, techno and the like. I've been a fan of electronic music for years. I remember growing up and going to the skating rink hearing C+C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweet", Technotronic (I love you Ya Kid K!!!!), Culture Beat and all that good stuff. Man the early '90s was a good time for music.

So in the first post about electronic music, I'll share with you the albums Twin Cities Electropunk. These feature artists from Minnesota. They feature the likes of Avenpitch, Apox and more. I only listed the two artists that were the ones I saw on my playlist. So what if I'm a little lazy right now, I've been up for almost (at least it seems like) 20 hours. These releases are available for free from Avenpitch's website which will be linked down below.

If you're a metal fan and wouldn't hate to at least try and expand your musical taste pallette, give these (so far) six compilations a listen. Hey, they're free, what's the hurt?

On a side note, I'm currently working with Sony ACID and working on my own electronic music. So far, it's not bad, (in my opinion). I don't expect (or really want) to make a living doin' this. I'm just doin' it for fun and maybe someone besides me will enjoy what I make. But I'm also working on remixes for Avenpitch's "Manscaping" and some Negative Earth tracks. Wish me luck and who knows, when they're done I might just post them on here. I guess only time will tell.

Hope everyone has a great life and until next time, I'm still the one and only Crash Underride.
