SXSW festival: 6GB of free MP3s available as Torrent

Found via TorrentFreak:

The South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival is one of the largest and most popular in the United States. For the fifth year in a row, SXSW has released a DRM-free, RIAA-safe collection of songs totaling 6 GB, which can all be downloaded for free, thanks to BitTorrent.



While we haven't checked out the contents of the bundle, the mere size already suggests that there must be one or another file that meets your taste. Get the DSL lines burning, you leechers!

Pesto 012: Cloudsteppers - Make Me Shine/New MP3s added to player!

pesto012_cover_150
Have you noticed the new banner picture? After Sandra Lima from Pesto 011, we have a nameless beauty this time. She, along with the palm trees, is part of the cover artwork of our upcoming single on Pesto by Ukraine's Cloudsteppers.

"Make Me Shine" was already introduced on our "2.0" compilation earlier this year with great success and now comes with a diverse pack of arse-kicking remixes.

Besides the jazzy "Deep Mix" and a slightly altered "Dub Mix", we are proud to have remix support from Urban Torque's Scope aka Ric McClelland, The Disclosure Project with a beautifully atmospheric mix, Chris Udoh with a slightly edgier rework and Pesto's inhouse variants in the shape of the mid-1990ies-ish "Bedroom Beach Remix" and the Soda Inc.-esque remix by Jon Silva.

Check out our MP3 player in the sidebar and preview Pesto 012 already today! Release date will be 12th December 2008, so you have some time to fall in love with this great DeepHouse bomb.
