There’s a free Amon Tobin track available for the next day (by “next day” is meant “until Thursday 14th June at 1500 GMT”). It’s part of a promotion for the 2012 Sónar Festival, which starts around the time that the free offer ends. The track, Tobin’s “Computer Game,” is one of four on the Bleep X Sónar 2012 Sampler EP set. You need to set up a Bleep.com account to access the download, but no financial transaction is required. The Tobin track is an amalgam of sorts — part high-grade digital percussive momentum, à la Tobin’s work on Splinter Cell games, and part retro 8-bit, with more than a whiff of the sort of gleeful vapor pixels that Daft Punk used to build its Tron score. The other three tracks are more of the dance-clubby variety. Additional details on the collection at bleep.com. More on Tobin at amontobin.com — where, currently, if you subscribe to the email announcement list, you will receive a free download of this track, a remix by Lorn Reel of “Night Swim”:
