It's Wilson's turn again to choose The 404 semiweekly audio draft sponsored by Beck's Beer in conjunction with Last.FM, a subsidiary of CBS Interactive and CNET News and Reviews 5000, so naturally we're a little skeptical (but not nearly as skeptical as we are about the moon landing), but Mr. Tang comes through again with the beautiful music of Priscilla Ahn, a young singer-songwriter with a light, ethereal voice that drifts through the layered atmosphere of her acoustic folk melodies.

In a world of recycled, formulaic pop songs, there is a forgotten place deep in the woods of art, love and rock n' roll. This is where you will find Gaz Reynolds. A pop sensation unlike any other, who writes and performs all of his own material and even directs, edits and produces his own pop videos (many of which have been released on DVD compilations and broadcast on TV music networks around the globe). Gaz has been featured in countless music and internet magazines and has appeared on a worldwide TV show broadcast in 64 countries to 135 million viewers. He is also regularly featured on Canada's N0.1 Dance TV Station BPM - TV. As if this wasn't enough, he also has his own animated cartoon series called "Gaz Wars", which can be viewed on the web on his Official Website Gaz World. In recent times, Gaz has gained a reputation for his controversial approach to the music industry. The music press regularly report on his controversial life style and music, and with the launch of his branded P2P software earlier in 2005, he has become an even bigger controversial Star. Now based somewhere between London Gaz World and Gaz World International, Miami Gaz has gained iconic status in the pop/dance field around the world. Having recently hosted his own 3 hour radio show on Radio Gets Wild in the UK with co host and pal DJ Dee, Gaz has shown us all another side to his talent - personality and sense of humour. Since the first show, Gaz and Dee have gone on to braodcast a regular monthly show with DJ Dee in the UK and Gaz broadcasting from his Miami home, featuring major industry guests from around the world. If Depeche Mode, Sash, Pet Shop Boys, Dead Or Alive, Aqua, Stephen Duffy, Duran Duran, Kylie, Human League got together and jammed, the music might sound a little like Gaz. Singing and writing from a young age, Gaz, now thirty-something years old, is a seasoned songwriter. Some would describe his gift as "Maturity with a youthful edge," but Gaz believes that art is art no matter what the age of the creator. Evidently, it is effective to start creating the art as early as possible. Gaz has already received multiple awards for his official website Gaz World (BT IMA nominations 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and an IMA award in 2004) as well as local and Internet-wide recognition for his music, including spotlights and Top 5 chart positions and major radio air play on COMERCIAL HIT RADIO STATIONS throughout the USA and worldwide. Gaz has built a worldwide fan base from hard work and determination, shooting press releases to the music press on a regular basis and having features and regular interviews on CHR, HOT AC, College and Internet Radio around the world. DJ reactions and spins in the clubs around the world have played a vital part in Gaz?s commercial success and high profile. In December 2003, Gaz formed his own record label WORLD DOMINATION RECORDS to market his own unique style of Dance/Pop music. This tactic appears to have worked very well for Gaz as it got him on the front cover of Media One Magazine with Duran Duran. It gave Gaz the credibility and recognition he deserved and enabled him to be featured on the VH1, MTV, All Music Guide, Rolling Stone, and LAUNCH websites. In October 2004, Gaz scored his first Top 40 hit on the Euro NRG Chart, which is based on sales and DJ reaction reports from around the world. Dance songs with a pop sensibility are what you'll hear while listening to Gaz. You might also be able describe his music as pop songs with a rock edge on occasion. Either way, Gaz's music is so widely palatable that it exceeds the boundaries of genres. A nice balance is given with his insightful lyrics, pop hooks and deep masculine and at times boyish vocals, so as not to alienate the different tastes of different listeners. Every song tells a story, drawing you in, making you wonder what is going on in his mind. Gaz really has something to tell you. His music is a wake up call to all Pop fans around the globe. Gaz has recently been working alongside established Producers Ross Alexander, The Panik Brothers, Future Force, The SleazeSisters/Starlet DJs, to further flavour his electronic sound - the best is yet to come!s electronic sound - the best is yet to come!
