been listening to this album at least twice a day, really really remarkable job

I have a couple, but my favorite has to be recovering the gear that was stolen from IAYD during his first show in Mexico, and also had a pretty good time in that year's SXSW and meeting in person a lot of OGs from the chiptune community

Been waiting to get my hands on this, excellent work as always and thanks for the source files!

Thanks guys! This is my first album that I'm truly comfortable with so I decided to make it a little special with the cassette release

"Almost two years ago, two or three chip musicians and a couple of Chiptune backers/aficionados met in a small apartment located in the heart of Mexico City thinking over what the future of the Mexican scene would be like. Gecko, one of the veterans, came up with this phrase: “It’s 8bit time!” Someone else muttered: “Chido-Chip”*. Almost two and a half years ago I received an email from Chema Padilla, founder of 56kbps Records, whom I met sometime later in a pizza place. He described his record label, he talked about an international art collective: “Chipotle Collective”. “We almost have no activity in the real world” he concluded. Almost a year ago, inside a room decorated with books and old consoles, five members of Chipotle Collective were worried to death. Long-distance calls. -“Are you coming then Alex Powrs?” -“Sure thing”. Plane ticket money, the list with the names of the musicians, savings… Suddenly, organizing a festival didn`t seem like something completely impossible: “FORMAT DF”. Almost ten years ago (ten years ago!) I used to stick my cassette tape recorder to the TV speakers hoping to capture a fragment of the soundtrack of Megaman III. The end result was less than good but I listened to it anyway. Some time ago, said time ago, Numbers, names, images, dates… The memory (and a hyperlink) remains with us so we can keep going."

The Fucsia album by H33llxz. Part 2 of Disonancia, an 11-track collection composed for LSDJ from the chileean musician. Composed during the last 2 years trying to convey the most harmful feelings for a human being. It was worth it.

If anyone is seriously looking for netlabels, I've been compiling a list of them here. Each has a short description of what they are looking for.

Wow that list looks like a lot of work, you are doing God's work Sycamore Drive

RIP True Chip 'Till Death, II, and VORC

Nice, might become addicted to the releases/catalog forum in the future

Hello CM!  I bring you my latest album of "thrash-pop" chiptunes. I haven't released much music over the years since running 56KBPS Records takes most of my "chipmusic related time" so this is a big deal for me. If you like classic VGM style chiptunes you might have a good time listening to Zapotecno

"Nine tracks composed between 2009 and 2012 for NES, Atari 800, Gameboy and Commodore 64. Zapotecno is the first feature length album by Chema64, an important ambassador of chipmusic in Mexico and Latin America via his netlabel (56KBPS Records). The album takes its name from the cover art "Zapotechno" by Galamot Shaku. A colorful mosaic of music and sight that mimics the relationship of technology and folklore in a developing country."

"One thing ‘Zapotecno’ does very well is traverse genres. Tracks ‘Machines of Loving Grace’ and ‘Fin del Mundo del Fin’ both contain nods at metal a la 90s VGM faux-thrash (think Duke Nukem 3D’s soundtrack). Elsewhere, album closer, ‘Quetzalli’, has a euphoric Saturday Morning theme tune pop atmosphere, with the accompanying hook-laden melodies lodged within its crevasses."
