As some of you might know: I released a remix some time ago under the moniker RobotVomit based on the vocals of Lisa DeBenedictis’ track Cuckoo. It got some great reviews at ccMixter.org, recieved an Editorial Pick and was selected for the Creative Commons Nederland DVD (Dutch text). Then on March 17, 2006 during the […]
