Well, I Guess Mediafire Doesn't Like Me...

*sigh*

Had a request a couple of months ago to re-up the "Sounds For The Space Set" album, but was in the middle of packing/moving/unpacking hell. I see now that not only is "Space Set" off-line, but so are 6 other albums.

UPDATE 6/28/12: "Sounds For The Space Set" is back up now.

RIAA: "Sounds For The Swing Set" UPDATE 7/02/12: Back on-line
RIAA: "Risque, Illicit and Adult" UPDATE 7/02/12: Back on-line
RIAA: "Tech-xotica!!!" UPDATE 7/02/12: Back on-line
RIAA:
"Dirt Bacharach" UPDATE 6/29/12: Back on-line
RIAA: "Recording Industries Are Archaic" UPDATE 6/29/12: Back on-line

RIAA: "Sounds For The Sun-Set" UPDATE 6/28/12: Back on-line


Crickey, it's a full-time job keeping this stuff available.  My office/studio isn't really set up yet, so I don't know when I'll be able to pull out the harddrive(s) these albums are on and put 'em back up.  I tell you what, tho - when I do, I won't be using mediafire anymore.  I've been going with mirrorcreator.com lately and haven't had any problems yet.  We apologize for the inconvenience...

RIAA Oldies On People Like Us' "Radio Boredcast"

"Radio Boredcast is a 744-hour online radio project, curated by Vicki Bennett (People Like Us) with AV Festival 12."

Vicki asked me if I would like to be one of the many who contributed mixes to this mammoth project, e.g.: Carl Stone, Chris & Cosey, Tim Maloney, Ergo Phizmiz, Matmos, Dave Soldier, Don Joyce of Negativland, David Toop, Jared Blum and GiganteSound, Felix Kubin, The Long Now Foundation (w/Brian Eno), DJ/rupture, and Lloyd Dunn of the Tape-Beatles. Alas, I had to turn her down (I'm still retired until I get my new studio set up), but she graciously included a few RIAA faves in her mixes. 

Needless to say, it's a stupendous project, chock full of fantastic audio goodness.  You'll never say "There's nothing to listen to" again.

DO OR DIY WITH PEOPLE LIKE US: SPRING EQUINOX SHOW – INCREDIBLE SPRING BANDS - features RIAA's "It's Like That Summer Samba" (Run-DMC goes to Brasil)

PLU's "Collarge" is a 6-hour history of sound collage mix that she made to accompany the new book Creative License: The Law and Culture of Digital Sampling.

People Like Us: Collarge Part 1 - features RIAA's "Knowing When To Put Down The Guns" (Burt Bacharach goes hip-hop)

People Like Us: Collarge Part 3 - features RIAA's "Setting Sail" (Enya vs The Chemical Brothers)

(Thanks, Vicki!)
