Facebook chief exec Mark Zuckerberg recently confessed that his network “missed the mark” regarding privacy controls. I’m still laughing at his leaked instant messages from 6 years ago :
Zuck: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard
Zuck: Just ask.
Zuck: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS
[Redacted Friend's Name]: What? How’d you manage that one?
Zuck: People just submitted it.
Zuck: I don’t know why.
Zuck: They “trust me”
Zuck: Dumb fucks.
I was delighted to be contacted by Simon Hayes a.k.a Swarm Intelligence recently. He kindly offered to record a DJ mix as part of the AgentCast series. Currently based in Berlin and active on the music scene for a number of years he also manages the Stasis Records label. As a DJ and producer, Simon is skilled at intertwining many Electronic genres. A number of Irish labels and producers feature on this excellent 30 track excursion through complex IDM and broken Techno. Big shout out to Stasis Records and a big thank you to Simon… check out his other mixes and the excellent releases on Stasis Records. Hopefully we will hear more from Simon on Invisible Agent this year. Enjoy the mix.

All Invisible Agent Records releases will be reissued in 2010.
After years of waiting, all of the labels original releases are to be re-released in digitally remastered stereo versions.
Engineers at Invisible Agent studios spent four years on the remasters, “utilising state-of-the-art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment [and] carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings”
The releases will be available individually or as a box set. For traditionalists, a box set of mono recordings will also be available – with each disc styled as a vinyl LP but on the LaserDisk format.
Each of the reissued releases will include the original art, original and new liner notes, and a booklet of photos that are, at least until every household in the world buys the new discs, “rare”. A short documentary will also be squeezed on to every LaserDisk, telling the story of each release genesis. Well worth the wait and a visit to Abrakebabra.
Discogs Digital, which will launch in the first week of April 2010, will stock both new and back catalogue download releases from Invisible Agent.
Over its 10 year history, Discogs.com has created the world’s most comprehensive database of dance and electronic music, earning credibility and respect as an invaluable resource for collectors, DJs and music enthusiasts alike.
