Here is his 14 track selection, a truly wide-ranging assortment of noise and harmonious listening from across the musical divide...

“Great Idea but...”

Hiya
just wanted to say hi, and what a great idea the 14 Tracks one is. A great way to discover new stuff; I don't agree with one postee tat they should be free, but I do like the idea of a bit of discount for buying all 14 tracks.
Cheers
Glyn

“The Type Master”

I'll listen to ANYTHING this guy serves up. He has such an uncanny ability to harness the collective talent of so many extraordinary artists. Everybody must download the primer Vol 1 collection from Boomkat. Not exactly fresh anymore, but truly stunning nonetheless.
