Something is happening today. A number of great artists are coming together to give you a taste of some of the most amazing contemporary electronic sounds, for full 3 days. Sounds great, right? Unfortunately since not all of us can appear in Asheville, NC in person, seeing it all live is a problem. Fortunately the good folks over at The Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit released a nice 11 track sampler to give us a taste in the comfort of our own homes.

The sampler comes loaded with names such as Pretty Lights, Gary Numan, Zola Jesus, People Get Ready, Half-Japanese and PANTyRAiD so you get everything from the pure electronic beats and masterful digital sampling of Pretty Lights to more indie/rock influenced sounds of Half-Japanese and Zola Jesus.

The Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit is a 3-day music festival staged in the heart of downtown Asheville, NC. Woven around the twin threads of contemporary electronic music and the creative use of technology – old and new – the festival features world-class musical performances by many of the greatest artists in contemporary music, along with talks, seminars, and panels by artists and others; interactive experiences for audiences; art installations and exhibitions and more. Every download will be entered to win 1 pair of tickets to the festival, October 25-27.

Hey North Carolina, have fun.
