Coalescing gradually like it's astronomical namesake, "The Accretion Disc" is an electronic music album collecting 13 of my favorite tracks from the past 13 years. Some of the songs have been out on vinyl before, and some of them have been posted to MeFi Music, but many have never been made available at all before now. The music is dense, melodic, Detroit-influenced techno and electro-funk, with an emphasis on soul, swing, squirty basslines, and catchy hooks. All of these tracks are deeply personal to me. If you enjoy the music of Underground Resistance, Fabrice Lig, Matthew Herbert, or Kevin Saunderson, you may find something you like. Pricing is pay-what-you-want, starting at $6, and I've set up a special offer code for MeFi that will knock another 10% off. Simply enter the word "ponyrequest" at checkout (without the quotes).

Best selling author Ben Hamper (Rivethead) has a vast knowledge of music. He hosts two radio shows, Soul Possession and Head For The Hills, both broadcast on community station WNMC 90.1 FM located in Traverse City, MI. Here is an archive of the streams for both shows. 'Soul Possession' is two hours of classic R&B, Funk, Soul and Blues, while 'Head For The Hills' is an hour of old Country, Hillbilly and Western music. Ben digs deep and mainly plays obscurities, B-sides and other rarities. There is also a link to listen to the streams live. I've been maintaining the site for over a year now and felt that there is enough material on it now to share with the Blue. Enjoy!
