33 acts submitted 66 songs of which 16 were chosen for this CD. The result is called CICATRIX (the ritual scarring) COLLECTION 1, a full-length CD of adventurous contemporary music by mixed-gender acts. NOT indie-pop, NOT "alternative", --it's trip-hop /edgy /dark /electro /rock. Bands from Chicago, Milwaukee, St Louis, and Kalamazoo are represented here.

"Firm on its resolve to promote "mixed-gender" acts, DivaNation sampler of dark electronica and trip-hop includes dulcet female voices backed by some male musicians. Cicatrix COLLECTION 1 is an excellent and varied introudction to an obviously fertile scene of technology-loving groups. (4)"
--Outsight Ezine, Detroit

"I have to say I was completely blown away by Cicatrix COLLECTION 1 -- there are some incredible songs. I couldn't rave quite as much as I wanted to in my review. Several of the songs are candidates for my favorites of this year -- breathtaking. There wasn't a single song on there I didn't like. Thanks for putting together such a great bunch of bands that deserve LOTS more exposure. I was left shaking my head in amazement as to how you found all these divergent and talented acts. Congratulations on this compilation, it may be the best one I've ever heard. Amazing."
