Revolution Void Album Released Online Free

Revolution Void's latest album Increase the Dosage has been released through a Creative Commons license granting free distribution.

Revolution Void combines electronic beats with jazz improvisation to create a unique style of music termed Electronic Breakbeat Jazz. The album Increase the Dosage features guest performances by musicians such as Seamus Blake (the Mingus Big Band), Michael Shrieve (Santana) and Matthew Garrison (Herbie Hancock).

The album was released initially on 4/4/2004 but the short-run self-released pressing quickly sold out. It was released again on 9/25/05 in a web package with full album art.

The web package is a self-contained website with hyperlinks directly from the tracklist to MP3's. It features 4 pages of full-color artwork by Seattle artist Shawn Wolfe.

Since its release, the album has spread rapidly through P2P networks such as BitTorrent. It has been featured on numerous blogs and music review websites.

Combining electronic breakbeats with jazz improvisation, the album has been described as "Herbie Hancock meets the Chemical Brothers!"
