Connexion Bizarre radio show @ Radio Zero

Stpocold - What Happened Outside
Whether you're expecting pure sublime noise, harsh ambient or even a tribute to electronic legends, there's something here for everyone with a taste for a roughly distorted mirror to society. It's loud, misanthropic and likely to offend somebody.
Mirko Uhlig / Dronæment - Farewell Fields
An hour's worth of minimal drone-influenced ambience, showcasing the talent of two emerging names of a new generation of sound artists.
Aa1 - Live At Electroline
"Live at Electroline" is a weird and wonderful journey that is certainly worth taking for those who appreciate sound composition outside the realm of typical auditory comprehension.
Thermostatic - Joy-Toy (2007)
It can be just what the doctor ordered to lift jaded folks out of seasonal depression, with playfully addictive repertoire of Nintendo love songs. Or it could simply annoy the Jesus Christ out of you. In either case, you won't be quick to forget it.
The Chaos Industry - Karoshi
All in all, a clumsily constructed recording, deficient in power, emotion or excitement. Kudos to The Chaos Industry for attempting to bring the live music element into a predominantly virtual genre, but I feel far more growth is still needed.
Dino Felipe - Dino Felipe Is Sleeping
Is there a method to all this madness? Only Dino knows, so don't bother attempting to decipher this outlandish hodgepodge of misfit electronic doodling. It's not supposed to make sense; just sit back and take it all in - you'll sleep better that way.
Carlos Ferrão - Business Traveller
"As prosecutors, we are used to dealing with the most appalling manifestations of humanity's cruel side on a daily basis. This is something that all of us have learned to endure as an essential part of our profession. (...) This is our routine."
