The 30th episode of Reasonably Sound has a special on chipmusic, and opens with an Amiga-song I made when I was still a teenager. It might be a bit heavy on the nostalgia and the limitations, but it’s apparently a good listen. I haven’t listened to it yet because I’m on a month-long diet from sound.
Joakim Cosmo, veteran DJ and PETSCII-guru, delivers yet another slow acid DJ-mix, this time featuring two of my songs. Early in the mix is Conny’s Boots mixed together with some nice C64-acid by Raveguru, and some other things. And at the end is an unreleased song of mine, an acid version of the Swedish classic “Sommaren är kort”.
All the songs in the mix was made in Sweden. “I want to show that despite of the hard globalization of electronic dance music, the local styles have survived, because they are affected by, and linked to the environments in which they are produced.”
And btw, in a few days I’m visiting mr. Cosmo to jam with our new project.
“1- 00:00 [goto80] – Portsmouth Sinfonia – Also Sprach Zarathustra
A sinful start of skills and thrills in reverse, this is a good start for any champion event! It’s actually played by professional musicians, but something seems a bit off?.
2- 01:01 [divag] – Felix Kubin – Die Kulturelle Revolution
In order that this mix changes the world, it have to be kind of revolutionary ! And I can’t make a mix without a Felix Kubin track… so it’s done.
3- 04:33 [goto80] – Richard Hayman – Dansero
Any revolution must be followed by a romantic robot dance. The album that this song is from should probably be discovered by more people. My neighbour brainwashed me with this when I was a teenager.
4- 07:22 [divag] – Apparat Organ Quartet – Romantika
Let’s continue our romantical trip in space ? All this melodic music is played live by this Island band, i saw them on stage, but i’m not sure they are not robots…
5- 11:52 [goto80] – Gelbart – Dish washing (organ remix)
And we fall back and relax in dish water with sweet robot commands. Gelbart has an impact on life!
6- 15:28 [divag] – Goto 80 – Papaya Coconut
In the mood to listen the best rasta commodore robot stuff that i know. Goto 80 is a big artist for me but i can’t tell you more here… just listen his music if you want a better life.
7- 18:57 [goto80] – Sandro Müntzing – Tankeläsare
Another song with Swedish vocals, this one about mind reading. Sandro has made some pretty wild pop releases with top notch lyrics and hooks.
8- 23:08 [divag] – Kevin Blechdom – Invisible Rock
Amour Amour ! It’s more that ten years that Kevin Blechdom always surprised me with his music going from freaky electronic noize to crazy musical comedy clubbing.
9- 26:04 [goto80] – Harry Forbes – Digits
Electric easy listening from the 1980’s or business music from the future?
10- 27:46 [divag] – Les Trucs – Skipping the rope
A little wake up after this perfect ballade. I had a time i listened this track every morning, punchy mornings, good days. Something to do is to see Les Trucs on stage, this german band is just awesome.
11- 30:26 [goto80] – Inferno Bajskorv – Shit Mule
These Göteborg teletext rebels have only made one release so far, but it’s spot on delicious like a good Boston meal.
12- 32:29 [divag] – Max Tundra – Cakes
Let’s eat some cakes on this, waiting the more happy of all the trumpets. Max Tundra makes very sophisticated music as a maniac, always surprising…
13- 35:54 [götö8Ö] – I Love 69 Pop Geju – Ko?ák
This song is the most important remnant of MySpace for me. Stuck with me ever since.
14- 39:38 [dïväg] – R.U.N.I. – La marcia della merce marcia
I know this band only by the album of this track, just zinzin and happy. Thanks to the white monkey that gave me this disc !
15- 43:54 [gótO8o] – Harry Merry – Endless stream of floats
Hitch hiking and stuff cool
16- 46:55 [d!v4g] – De!Nial – Tokyo dance school
Let’s party, crazy singing ! Makes me think of Michel Bertier’s voice for sure…
17- 49:24 [gOtOBo] – Ween – Awesome Sound
Impossible not to like this!
18- 51:44 [d|v@g] – Barom One – The Karaoke Song
I hope you like happy endingz ! Cheerz ! You can find in this music something of Gordon Strombola i think…”
ENJOY & SHARE !!
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…

Files in Space is out on Sunday! 13 brainblasting songs from smart-soft to stoopid-hard, with bombastic FM megamix pool party stompers inbetween. Teletext techno, skanör electro, amiga rock, skweee, monster pop, dinosaur drone, and so on.
Here’s a 5-minute mash-up of all the songs (and data) on the album. It’s a cassette and “digital download”, released at Data Airlines. Don’t miss out!
Big <3 to iLKke for the design.
aanaaanaaanaaana has made this mix and released it at NTWRK, and it’s som pretty freak-guud stuff. And some of my things. That “Pump up the Warez” song was made in 1997 but is still as fresh as 1988..

This is a DJ-set by Jucke, mixing together material from Up Rough members like Qwan, Yoki, Dipswitch, Elusive and me. Released at Bit Jam, it continues a series of Up Rough mixes. Illustration here by Raquel Meyers, logo by Spot.
Very well mixed by Jucke as usual. And if nothing else, a good way to discover Qwan’s fantastic Amiga music.
The Sydney-based Thematics Radio ran a tracker special again, and featured some of my Amiga songs. Behind the show are people like Hedonist, who released Amiga music on vinyl already in 1996. (Bloody Fist = Amiga gabba empire)
In the radio show there’s also a ‘speedcomp’. That means you get half an hour to make a song with the same samples as anyone else. Radio is cool!
