Truly love the Web and how close to the music we can really be. Axs, one of the better known and more talented among the latest crop of 'dub techno' musicians (post Basic Channel, post Deepchord) has been on my radar for quite a few years. First stumbled across his works on some netlabels as well as some Other Heights compilations, among others. Truly talented musician, able to take those sounds and artists who have influenced him and make music that is uniquely his own.
Anyhow, he is active on one of the discogs forums through which I have fully immersed myself into the dub techno sound and a few months back offered up a contest on his Soundcloud page to give away a CD versions of a series he had released through Brian Grainger's Recycled Plastics label. Little did I know that I would be the lucky recipient.
Not only were the CDs provided (each with bonus tracks unavailable via the digital releases) but he included a very personal touch by creating cover art on what was otherwise plain cardstock sleeves. Totally and completely cool.
You can see the results of the artistic creations here.
The links below are to the digital versions. CD versions, limited editions of 50, are also available. Digital versions are 'Name Your Price' but contribute what you can to keep the music alive.
