Dissing Dubstepin & Housen on Finnish TV


At the Finnish H2Ö-festival I was interviewed by the national public service news. And they included a little quote with me saying that there’s too much house and dubstep influence on chipmusic. Clearly a matter of national interest! Check the clip here while you can, around 9 minutes in.

Really great festival, don’t miss out next year! I only used Amiga and C64 this time, which I haven’t done for probably 10 years. Oh and btw, the same Finnish TV-channel will start hosting the teletext art museum MUTA in August.

Dear Data mix for Ouiedire

A 60-minute mix with music I like, released at Ouiedire. It’s got a bit of everything, from the 50′s on to today. A lot of it was made with lo-fi gear. There’s IDM and ambient made with Gameboy Advance, italo and pr0n-funk and nipple rave made with Amiga, skweee and indie pop made with Gameboy, 1950′s computer music, and assembler rap, MacGyver beats, acid, organ orgasms, top gun chip, atari war propaganda, and so on. Yeah, and the bits of 50′s Swedish computer sounds are from an obscure Datasaab recording…

Check the full playlist and listen.

Sold Out

9 days later and Files in Space is a sell out. All 100 cassettes are gone! You can still get it on Bandcamp as MP3/FLAC. I’ve been told that iTunes will, after a long thought about Unicode sourcery in databases, make the songs available aswell. But renamed to fit a 1960′s text protocol instead. Such retro.

Spotify thought that the last track (with C64-data encoded as audio, sounding sort of like a fax noise) was corrupt, so they’ve been delayed too. But it might end up there eventually, I suppose. Maybe even with proper song titles.
