#296: Various / Secret Games
M3U FMP3  Tracks : 18
 
After quite a long drawn out process (the cover artwork was only ready the other day) finally the long awaited VA release 'Secret Games' is here.

We've got some well known and familiar names (Bad Loop, Xurba, Lackluster, Brioskj and Planet Boelex) as well as some new artists, all going towards creating this mammoth 1.5 hour festival of music!

Notes about the tracks: Bad Loops track is actually a realtime recorded jam session involving a drum machine and synth, Lacklusters track dates back to 2003 and is previously unreleased, and also included in the VA are two tracks from myself - the first track and last track. Beneath a Steel Sky is taken from the commercial release 'Robot Dreams' which is available on iTunes.

The tracks otherwise speak for themselves, so I'll leave you to check them out for yourself. Enjoy this epic release! Cover artwork by noneother than Eero Johannes (otherwise known as Kairaus), the multiply talented meister of music and graphics. Watch out for widescreen versions coming to the wallpaper section shortly.

Oh hey, it's the epic 10-releases-in-1 <3

Very excellent release to come back to. Favorite is Invisible, though it's hard to pick from the sheer amount of excellent tracks in here.

This is an excellent compilation, thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. I like the contributions by netaudio regulars such as Weldroid and Planet B, and I'm glad to see more tunes from newcomers Island near the Clouds and Drafts on a theme. They were notable standouts on the last V/A, "Serenity." Though really, every track on this album is good stuff. Even artists that I haven't really listened to, such as Brioskj, Bad Loop, Xurba, and 4T, all contributed excellent works. I'm going to have to start digging into their back catalogs; for some reason I just never got into their stuff. They're all old-school folks that have been making good netaudio for years, like Lackluster, whose track "Jack of no trades" represents some of the best old-school IDM you'll find on the the 'net.

This is a solid 5-star release. Thanks for releasing it, Nik.

Bravo, assorted artists! Encore!
