Artist: Symbion Project Song: Funky Dope Maneuver, FreQ Out Genre: If I had to guess it'd probably be Hard House Comments: While Funky Dope Maneuver is more of the fun-loving dance side of Kasson (Symbion), FreQ Out sounds like something so much more sinister, and is designed to do just that: make you freak out. They're both amazing songs that are constantly changing the beat throughout and taking you for one rollercoaster ride you'll never forget. URL: http://www.symbionproject.com
Artist: Freezepop Song: Science Genius Girl Genre: Synthpop Comments: The song itself is kind of trippy, with a synth and keyboard beat that make you feel almost as though you're in a Halloween movie. It's an awesome song by an awesome band that Kasson of Symbion Project is in. Does it also help that the vocalist is adorable? URL: http://www.freezepop.com
Artist: Ethan E. Eves Song: Selecta Genre: Drum N' Bass Comments: The song itself is only 180bpm, but it still seems amazingly fast. And despite Ethan being featured on the game Frequency (one that's very near and dear to my heart), he's still unbelieveably underground, garnering only about 55,000 google hits.

- Artist: Jon & Vangelis - Song: The Friends Of Mr. Cairo - Genre: Progressive Rock (they have been called ambient and new age as well) - Comments: When I was younger my father used to play this song all the time. I distinctly remember him calling me over to hear it on headphones on the computer and listen for the sound of the film reel in the background once. Since he passed away of course this song has become important to me, and I can without a doubt say it's my overall favorite song. It's about twelve minutes long, has a very unique sound, and if you enjoy mafia movies you will probably like it. Or Edward 'G' and all those guys who always shoot between the eyes. - URL to Band Website: Not available.

Comments: Fav. song from fave band, featured in first artists album "Homework", name of the album due to the fact that tb and guy-man recorded in tb's home studio.

Artist: Fatboy Slim
Song: Song for The Shelter
Genre: Somewhere in the bounds of techno
Comments: I doubt most people will like this song, but I could always be wrong. It's a good song to just blast and listen to. It's essentially normal Fatboy beats except with a man ranting about how great house music is, and I'd fully agree with him.
