During the past week, Connexion Bizarre was updated with a new release by US idm/ambient/glitch project Pandora's Black Book, an interview French cyberpunk band Chrysalide, a couple of music reviews and our weekly podcast.

In light of the recent events in Japan (read about it here in case you've been living under a rock the past weeks), we will be assisting US experimental music label Force Of Nature in "Natural Disasters: Sendai Japan" project of releasing a compilation series to raise funds for disaster relief in Japan. Prometheus Burning were among the first to react with their "Help Japan. Get Free Music" initiative and there's also a pretty nifty compilation out released by UK label Wrong Music. Of course you can always donate directly at the American Red Cross or the JPRI Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.

Due to unforeseen circunstances, we had to skip last week's newsletter so here's a rundown of the updates to Connexion Bizarre in the past couple of weeks. First off, two guest podcasts, one by Sleep Clinic from Los Angeles and the other by DJ Distorted Chaos from the Netherlands. Then an interview with Brad Vaccine of Torrent Vaccine, a few reviews and quite a bit of recommendations of videos, links and free net releases.

And speaking of free net releases the latest instalment of the "You Are Here" compilation series is now availabe for free download. Curated by Bauke van der Wal of the [law-rah] collective and almost one year in the making, this compilation features a lot of previously unreleased material by top electronic artists from Belgium and the Netherlands with exclusive printable artwork by G3DS (along with the usual "You Are Here" artwork for jewel case)

Connexion Bizarre updated 2010-12-28

During the past week, Connexion Bizarre was updated with a couple of podcasts and reviews as well as some recommendadions of freely available releases.

Since this is the last mailing/update of 2010, it also time to present our staff's selection of releases worthy of note in 2010. A wide variety of names (some of them relatively well-known) proving that tastes are eclectic and that there is still really a lot of good stuff out there to be discovered. View the lists here.

Also, this year we also tried to be play pre-cog and place some bets on some stuff to watch out for in 2011 - subject to our staff's taste and inclinations but you can check our thoughts on coming festivals, releases, labels and tendencies: Bang Face, Bloc, Milhões de Festa, Resistanz, Chrysalide, Signifier and Cassette Sub-Cultures... Read it here.
