Chasing the Tangent - Episode 9 - Burnt Brakes

This fortnights show has been a long time in the making, having discovered the Californian label "Frite Nite" label led me to find an artist on their roster, J Todd, whose latest album XOXO is absolutely worth tracking down. If you are interested in finding out more about any of the artists in the playlist, all you have to do is become a friend of the show at myspace.com/chasingthetangent and you will see links to the artists on the playlist. As always myspace is a brilliant source of new music inspiration for Tangent Chasers.

We also have brand new tracks from Flying Lotus, Luke Vibert's new collaboration album with Jeremy Simmonds on Rephlex, and we get a sneak preview of a brand new collaboration between two brilliant Australian artists, Morganics and Miles Merrill. I was also lucky enough to have been given a demo by new Sydney artist "Know U" with a rich and dark dubstep style, he is definitely a local artist to watch.

Thats all for now folks, do join the family over at www.myspace.com/chasingthetangent


As far as I know, I am not a robot.
