America - Vote For Obama!!!!





In the political spirit, I urge all American readers to PLEASE get out there and VOTE for BARACK OBAMA!!!

Our country has been suffering through 8 years of political / social / economic downfall. It must stop now.

A vote for Barack Obama is a vote for the future well-being of our country. Our economy is in shambles, dragging much of the rest of the world with us. We are losing favor in the eyes of more and more foreign leaders with further military action in Syria and Pakistan in addition to the fighting we continue to wage upon the citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan. Our very foundation is in shambles with public education getting worse and worse, no funding for the arts and community programs, and our very homes are being threatened to be taken away from us while corporate big wigs get bailed out and rewarded for being at the heart of our current economic crisis.

Is there any question of who the better choice is?

Enjoy a free House track featuring snippets from a Brack Obama speech!

The only downside to this mix? It's only 2:49. Oh well, please enjoy it while it lasts. Chopped and tweaked with a tinge of Bmore flavor. This is a really fun remix of this track, and retains more of the original lyrics than some of the other remixes of this song.

skylab2000



Welcome to our feature on the man, the myth, the legend skylab2000. Arguably one of the best LIVE electronic / dance artists ever.

I could not have written this any better, so please read this excerpt from his bio:

"skylab2000 is not a DJ or a 'laptop' band. This is a fully LIVE electronic music performance. Since 1994, skylab2000 has been making hard hitting dance music and traveling city to city to play it for the best audiences in the world.

With a full set of synths, samplers, mixer, and effects units, a skylab2000 show is a unique experience. This music is played live on stage, with real vocals, changing to the crowds needs and creating a ride to remember. The sound is an eclectic blend of techno, hard house, breaks, electro, acid, and trance.

After growing up in New York and London, skylab2000 is now living in the Los Angeles area, but playing live shows has taken him around the world: Russia, Japan, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Montreal, Puerto Rico, Vancouver, Molvania, Mexico and more! Back home in America, skylab2000 has played in almost every state - hundreds of live shows in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Miami, Memphis, Las Vegas, Anchorage, Seattle and so many more.

World Renowned DJs such as Sasha, John Digweed and Carl Cox play skylab2000 tracks.

skylab2000 tracks also appear on many compilation CDs, on iTunes, Beatport, and on top selling mix CDs by Taylor, Keoki, John Kelly, Grover, Psycho-Bitch, Sol Brothers and Thomas Michael, and on great labels such as Moonshine, Metronix, Koch, Journeys by DJ, Phatt Phunk, 3am Records, Brainiak, City of Angels, Genesis Project, and many more.

On the seminal mp3.com music site, the Rollergirl track became the number one most downloaded song overall, with around ONE MILLION downloads.

Movies, televison shows and major video game soundtracks also have the skylab2000 touch. Microsoft's "Amped" and Konami's "Dance Dance Revolution Supernova" have skylab2000 tracks in the games."
