The Upbeats' remix album "Re-Evolution" came out today! There are a few tracks that don't really go anywhere but also some great new takes on old tunes :wubs:

New Loadstar came out this week - as a whole it's kind of hit and miss, but there are one or two tracks I really liked :wubs:

I listened to the new deadmau5 yesterday evening / this morning. I can't link anywhere because it's a timed exclusive on Tidal (that paid streaming service from Jay-Z which he set up because Spotify is killing the industry, or something) but you can get a free trial and then turn off auto-renew or whatever. Anyway, the album's named "where's the drop?" and is essentially a bunch of orchestral renditions of classic tracks, so there's no thumping backbeat (literally; none of the songs have any kind of drum track) but instead the tunes are simply performed in an orchestral form rather than on synths and whatnot. It actually works better than I thought it would - the signature melodies of the tracks are recognisable, and suit the new format well. It's no longer something you can bop your head to at will, but it makes for nice background music.

I don't know when it's being released on regular formats - apparently deadmau5 prefers the audio quality of Tidal over Spotify etc - but again it's not difficult to cancel a trial.

I bet he prefers the extra money Tidal are paying him too ;)

I’ve been listening to the Megadeth back catalogue in the last few weeks, some utterly stupendous monsters on those albums I’d never bothered with before. Also listened to Generation Terrorist by the Manics today for the first time, I had no idea they used to be so heavy! Verging on punk/metal at times, great stuff.

Nicki Minaj has a song called Chun-Li and the lack of any Street Fighter samples or lyrics about fighting the Shadaloo is disappointing. That is all.
