Machines Don’t Cry

Machines don’t cry is my new pop single on Mutantswing with remixes by Whale opportunity, Decorate the sky and me (bonus internet2008 treat). BLDZR made the cover art and it’s a wink to Ekta‘s cover for Made on Internet.

And most importantly – the video! BLDZR made it and I helped with some ASCII-stuff. The good looking computer is the ABC80 (which might be where the 80 in Goto80 comes from?) and I made some of the ASCII with the ABC80-font, supplied by Shadow.

Oh, and since there is “nudity” in the video it is not liked by all platforms but let’s hope it gets to stay online.

Hardcore Family

Time for my first album on Mutantswing, stuffed with party breakcore italo gabber chip funk pop acid rave! It might seem a bit random, considering all the ambient I’ve put out lately, but lots of this stuff is from the Drain Bamage days (coming back soon, hopefully!). Anyway, big thanks to The Toilet, Sandy, Glenn Hussein, Super-Notorious-Outrageous-Whiteboy, Jämbo and Company Fuck for helping out.

> Get it either on Mutantswing or on my Bandcamp

 

S T A L L O

S T A L L O is a 110-minute album with hazy, slow, eerie and dreamy music, mostly jammed out on Commodore 64. You can see how that jamming happens in the video below for Bilin.

A few shout outs to the people involved: Akai Selzer who spent 2 days jamming with me in Frankfurt, Jacob Remin who helped the robot to do a new live version of Synkex, which opens S T A L L O (and was also used in Korridoren, made with Björn Bengtsson), Paul Cousins who did the remix of Stures Bröd, Bob Nimbe for the VR goat video and Dubmood who did the layout.

If you like this kind of stuff, there’s good news. This album is actually the first in a series that’s coming out on Data Airlines soon. They’ll all be in a somewhat similar vein. If you don’t want to miss out just subscribe to the RSS-feed of this blog. Lol, I know, only freax like me subscribe to RSS. Uh, so, either follow my newsletter or my Bandcamp account. Everything else is a scam.

808642 (On Tape)

A while back, on 808-day, I released 808642 and now the tape version is out! It includes a new song as well as remixes by Mesak, Dubmood and Abe Sangin. Just like 80864 it uses primarily TR-808 and Commodore 64, but also other things. A lot of the songs are based on jams, and the last song is actually a 15 minute jam that I didn’t have time to finish properly, but I included it anyway.

Get it on Bandcamp

Pst – if you already bought the digital release and didn’t get an email with a discount code for the tape version, get in touch.

808642

808642 is my new release to celebrate 808-day (8/8) like a real drum machine freak. You get some electro, techno, some sort of pop, drum n’ bass and some slow beats.

w93.m3u

My new album is out now on cassette:  w93.m3u. It’s a lo-fi odyssey of pre-retro disco-electro beat-pop made on the Commodore Amiga. Hey, maybe we can call it amigawave? ٩(◕‿◕)۶

All 14 songs are about 2,3 megabytes in total, in the original mod-format. That’s small enough to fit on two floppy disks, with enough space for bonus multimedia material! Hmmm….

I’ve used Protracker 2.3D mostly using extremely illegal evil pirate samples from this archive full of low-quality teenage samplings. Download that and use Protracker for Win/MacOS/Linux and you’re good to go. Highly recommended studio setup!

The songs first appeared in April on Windows93.net. It shows the mod-files playing in a post-groovy Windows window. Check it out here or if that doesn’t work, go to windows93.net and click the G80.M3U icon.

Shirbum

My new release is not just an album, but also a shirt. It’s a shirbum! Catchy and melancholic pop music full of mega basic FM-sounds, synth speech vocals, 80’s drum machines and friendly acid bombs. Made in cooperation with PET.CORP (who btw just launched some other PETSCII-clothes in their shop).

  • Shirbum is a high-quality tailor-made C64-shirt that comes with all the 23 songs (QR/stream/download).
  • Shirbum Light is the naked digital version with 15 songs (also on Spotify)

The shirt won’t be available for long, so choose wisely! When you place your order you will get the music instantly, and the shirt will be shipped as soon as the tailor is done (more info here).

Btw, the shirt shows one of the songs from the album (Buck) as it looks in the C64-software, JCH Editor, that it was made in.
