The Voltage: Fashion Amplified 2008 compilation CD features six bands and was produced with the support of Copy Cats Media and Rare Form Mastering. The CD includes searing tracks from White Light Riot, face-melting rock from Birthday Suits and The Haves Have It, danceable grooves from electro freaks Zibra Zibra, Hip Hop heroes MC/VL, and dreamy pop from Bella Koshka. Several of the tracks on this year’s disc are exclusive to the Voltage CD.
“Each year the disc seems to rock harder and harder as if we’re pushing some kind of proverbial envelope. The Voltage discs may be a minute cross section of the scene from year to year, but you can still see a reflection of the broad scope of Twin Cities bands in these discs, and they’re a testament to the fact that the quality of what we have to choose from is so outstanding.” stated David de Young, CD Coordinator for Voltage: Fashion Amplified 2008.
The CD can also be purchased for ten dollars starting April 9, 2008 at select Twin Cities music retailers including; Electric Fetus, Roadrunner Records, Treehouse Records and at Voltage: Fashion Amplified 2008 show on April 16.
