Music For The Jilted Generation - New covers album on UpItUp

We are delighted to announce the release of "Music For The Jilted Generation", a cover of the entirety of The Prodigy's dancefloor filling 90s classic on the frankly marvellous UpItUp Records.

The album comes complete with the full set of Ergo's covers albums from 2003-2010 "Ergo Phizmiz & his Orchestra plays Aphex Twin", "White Light White Heat", "Arff & Beef", "Now That's What We Pump At The Party" and "Dadaphone". And it's all (guess) FREEEEE.

"Ladies and gentlemen,

we are
beyond proud to present thou our latest musical acquisition, acollection of genuine recordings by a well respected figure of the netlabel scenes; composer, songwriter, performer, collagist, DJ, installation artist, netaudio legend, author, narrator, radio host and what not – Mister Ergo Phizmiz! [Applause, standing ovation]

The man himself called upon us to treasure his corpus of divine
musical reinterpretations inside our flamboyant catalogue, enabling future generations to sup on herein before mentioned. The collection contains the 2003 album "Ergo Phizmiz & his Orchestra Plays Aphex Twin", the 2004 cover version of The Velvet Underground's "White Light White Heat", the 2005 reinterpretations of R'N'B hits, called "Arff & Beef", and the 2009 compilations "Now That's What We Pump at the Party" and "Dadaphone".

As if the honour for our part wasn't complete, Phizmiz passed us his
acoustic solo remake of Music for the Jilted Generation by The Prodigy which he has recorded for us in solely one day, to be especially released here on upitup.

My goodness, go ahead and
download the whole fucking thing here!!!

One feels like
shit next to Ergo who has released works such as an amazing 15 hour-long album piece and who has broadcast more than total 200 hourson radio stations like WFMU and Resonance FM. We are oberthrilled to be home to this epic collection of free music by him and promise to never release anything ever again after this. :) "
