"Digital Soundclash" gives music enthusiasts unprecedented access to the software, inspiration and know-how needed to create their own music, as well as access to an innovative artist to collaborate with. The Angel has created ten exclusive "MusicPacks" containing original loops and elements for consumers to download and build their own songs. The Angel also has brought in collaborators E-Sassin, Ming & FS and DeadZone among others, to create a variety of musical styles. Additionally, users can experiment, interact and remix The Angel's own music with the Digital Soundclash Music Creator, starting with 'Make It Betta' taken from her album 'No Gravity' featuring Tre Hardson (The Pharcyde).

"Since I first started making music, technology has been an enabler for my artistic expression. Today the computer serves as the new digital recording environment, making it accessible for anyone interested in music to immerse themselves in the creative experience," said The Angel. "In collaborating with Screenblast on Digital Soundclash, I wanted to provide an online area where people wouldn't be afraid to try something new and where music lovers of all levels could create, swap loops, collaborate, try different things -- and find their voice."

Recognized for pioneering a sound that is both urban and electronic, The Angel's credits include producer, remixer, composer and artist and spans many genres. Her discography includes solo and collaborative original projects, remixes, film scores and productions.
