If you're racking your brain trying to figure out what to get me for Christmas, English photographer Shaun Bloodworth has collaborated with Give Up Art and Bleep to put together this gorgeous package. It contains 14 photographic prints and a compilation album, documenting electronic music artists from 4 regions, including the likes of Flying Lotus, Daedelus, Mike Slott and Hudson Mohawke (below). A few of these are shots from Bloodworth's LA Dope series.

It's great to see a photographer documenting a musical movement this way, reminiscent to what Francis Wolff did with jazz or Martha Cooper with early hip-hop. I'd also be interested in seeing photographs of the artists in their creative spaces, like Rafael Rashid's "Behind The Beat". Maybe that will come next?

The standard edition is limited to 500 copies and includes the 14 prints and CD. The deluxe edition comes with a poster and what looks to be different packaging. If I had more money at the moment I would have already made my pre-order. Maybe Santa will get me a copy? Preview of the tracks below...
