The result is almost 3 hours of music spanning dozens of genres, styles and moods (not to mention several continents).

The CDs were sold out long ago, and Severed Digit no longer exists, but we've given these tracks a new home. Ten tracks ranging from breakcore/hip-hop to ambient chimes and drones.

A month in 36 minutes: one track for each day of July 2005. Blue T-Shirt cooks up a smorgasbord of electronic styles and moods. Track 5 has barely begun when it dissolves into swathes of reverb; track 12 could be the soundtrack to the world's shortest film; track 10 is a chaotic flurry of filthy drums and slurred synths; the final track is a sprawling slab of ambience weighing in at a lengthy 4:56. But you really need to listen for yourself to pick out your own favourites.
