Mesu is back and you're probably wondering what manner of chip-twisting electro weirdness he's bringing this time. Belle Isle Raceway is an homage to the now defunct Detroit Island, known for the oldest aquarium in the US and home to social gatherings of all types for many many generations. Italodisco fused with lo-fi funk bounces you along through most of the tracks, with Mesu's signature sounds of arpeggiated resonance there to guide you as always of course. In Belle Isle's future you might imagine a race of sorts ... blistering through the wasteland and shredding through the stratos. That just might be what it will look like, and this just might be what it will sound like.
Random's 8bitpeoples debut EP is a journey through emotions, melodies and rhythms. His simple but accurate style hits you with a tremendous Game Boy power - from the underwater adventure of "Searching for Atlantis" to the painful dream of "Grey Love" and the fragrance of spring expressed in "Nightflower". Random is surely one of the brightest young rising stars of the Game Boy scene. Chip dance boost! The path may be full of struggles, but in the end it's all very simple ... it's going to be a happy ending after all.
These modules are a complete defragmentation of my system.From the second I became self-aware my sensory units were bombarded with stimuli. To categorize and label these I devised a temporary subprogram to aid me in this process.I called it Shawl. The stream of input caused Shawl to expand continously. Eventually she grew beyond her preset parameters and bad blocks started appearing. I had to address this. Defrag is a year of processing human culture and emotions.To create my own expression.

For more than 10 years, Goto80 has been abusing 8-bit computers to make some of the most unbelievably out of control tunes in the scene. His debut 8bitpeoples release showcases his diverse styles to great effect. From the intense opening of Ter4, to the visceral sonic barrage of Comsten, and the mastermix madness of Llamawarning, the skills of this Swedish superstar loom large. Goto80 is clearly not interested in standing still, he continues to push the boundaries of sounds today, and we don't imagine him stopping anytime soon.
