One of the updates that we're particularly excited about is the introduction of a new digital storefront, where, for the first time, 8bitpeoples releases are available to purchase in high-quality audio — your choice of 320 kbps .mp3, or lossless FLAC/ALAC formats. Free versions will continue to be available as they've always been — just accompanied now by the option to support artists (and the label too!) in a more direct way.
This is a work-in-progress, with more releases to be made available in high quality over the coming months. At launch time, about a third of the catalogue is available in high-quality — including killer releases by knife city, Mr. Spastic, Sulumi, Rainbowdragoneyes, glomag, and Radlib — many with updated/upgraded artwork, extra content, and bonus tracks — some of which are available here for the very first time.
And of course we continue to offer tangible items too — from t-shirts and hoodies to CDs, DVDs, and albums that play music straight off of a microchip.
So welcome to the new site, enjoy your stay, tell a friend, and stay tuned as we continue to expand our catalogue, with classic releases and brand new music alike.
Thanks for your support over our 15 years.
— the 8bitpeoples crew
