I’ve put together an IDM compilation on my label, subVariant and I’ll be doing a virtual release party on Thursday. …Robohustlin, is a curated collection of melodic IDM, ambient and glitch tracks from Chicago and beyond… All thirteen tracks were chosen from an open call for songs in July-August of 2010, and represent the highest quality and most discernable sonic dedication that fit with the general theme that organically emerged over the course of weeding through all the submissions. Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 9pm CST Robohustlin with be premiered in a live DJ set by Liz Revision on Ustream on at ustream.tv/channel/live-at-subvhq (embedded below). Friday, September 24, 2010 at 10am CST The compilation can be downloaded from www.subvariant.com Read more here: Robohustlin virtual release party.
