I first had the chance to listen to this album last year and it went straight to my iPod because of Black ELement's innate energetic talent to rap and to make really good hip hop. It truly stands out from the hundreds of wanna-be-rappers we've had to listen to in order to make our FrostWire featured picks every month.

uncanny successes of the structurally diffused spread of an Internet elite, spread worldwide. The book you're about to read has no author, no designer, no translators, no distribution channel.
The Respondent EP by the Chicago and Stockholm based Resplendent/Downey is certainly one oldy-but-goody release, in internet years anyway, and certainly one of my all-time personal favorites. Released in the summer of 2007, coagulates a massive amount of feeling and idealism, that is beautifully transmitted in a mix of electronic music and good, heartfelt vocals.

Andy Wagner's third album, “Those Who Forgive” is a melodic rock six-song EP from Rock Proper, a net label devoted to distributing quality rock albums covered under the Creative Commons license.

Façade is an artificial intelligence-based art/research experiment in electronic narrative – an attempt to move beyond traditional branching or hyper-linked narrative to create a fully-realized, one-act interactive drama. Integrating an interdisciplinary set of artistic practices and artificial intelligence technologies, we have completed a five year collaboration to engineer a novel architecture for supporting emotional, interactive character behavior and drama-managed plot. Within this architecture we have built a dramatically interesting, real-time 3D virtual world inhabited by computer-controlled characters, in which the player experiences a story from a first-person perspective. Façade was publicly released as a freeware download in July 2005.
Keyboard Rebel is part of a new batch of indie British pop artists surging from across the pond. This aaahh-records release is a mix of mainstream rock with creative influxes of folk, that still manages to keep its British feel.
