(Line - 2000) - Mini-micro-digital soundscapes, like teasing electronic wraiths, make for extremely quiet listening...

(International Audiochrome - 2000) - Like of warm, layered blankets, "green" audiocurrents unfold in comfortably familiar surroundings

(Skin and Barrel Music - 2000) - Enigmatic aural renderings of various eclectic soundforms drift in-and-out of unknown territories.

(Nefarious - 2000) - With a propensity toward experimental beatiness, these various artists bring a little something for everyone to this e-musical meeting.
V/A: Xen Cuts (8.6)
(Ninja Tune - 2000) - A lot of music from a lot of people in a lot of variously intertwined forms... like those swinging retrojazz-electronic numbers!
