DEF CON, one of the worlds largest and longest running hacking conferences, celebrates it’s 20th year with an energetic and appropriately themed compilation, entitled “XX”. Founder and head of the conference Jeff Moss, also known as Dark Tangent, tasked DEF-CON “goon” and Muti Music artist Great Scott with curating the talent filled track selections; acknowledging that music can be pure hacker fuel. Glitch-hop producers AMB, Mochipet and Cryptex play alongside a myriad of other genre-gurus – including nerd-rockers Minibosses, tech-electro wizard High Sage, and nerdcore rap professionals MC Frontalot and Dual Core. Listening to this mix of hacker artists is like riding a wave of concentration as you find yourself zoning out to the ambient tones or letting the determining beats direct your fingers across the keyboard.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sales go to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a non-profit agency that advocates digital rights and fights for the first amendment against egregious government bills like SOPA and the Cybersecurity Act of 2012. We urge you to purchase the DEF CON XX Compilation and spread the word to your friends and family.
