Advent Calendar on the way.

During December, we’ll be giving away a completely unreleased tune every day for FREE.

Not only that, they’ll be on a virtual advent calendar, so you can get the joy of opening the doors without the guilt of eating a tiny amount of cheap horrible chocolate.

You’ll have three days to download each tune, after which we’ll be selling them in our downloads shop for next to nothing. We’ll post up a link to the advent calendar here, and on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. Keep an eye out!

Update: the advent calendar is here!

Digital Analogue Mix
