Chill: Laura B

By • Nov 30th, 2008

I spotted Laura B over at the Guardian – Band Of The Day back in September. The line that caught my attention was :Laura B (The Fantastic to her friends) is that rarity, a woman who not only writes, sings and performs her own material but also handles all the gadgetry in the studio and […]

Jools pointed out that the YouTube meme “The Machine is Us/ing Us” has been updated. Fortunately the music is untouched. The music from this video is by Deus who I believe is from the Ivory Coast. I can’t really tell you much about him, but I can tell you that it’s damn fine music. Head […]

Wandering around Jamendo is always fun, their collection of electronic artists never cease to amaze me. Today’s offering comes direct from their front page. Chill Carrier is basically Sebastian Kretzschmar. I wish I could tell you something about him but there isn’t a lot of info.
