In the realms of CulturaChip you can find a constantly growing community, based as a central point of meeting of musicians, coders, graphic artist and enthusiasts of the retroarts from countries where spanish and portuguese are spoken.
It’s mainly composed as a conglomeration of forum+mail list+wiki+irc+metanetlabel, where the forum conform the battlefield arena for sharing your last work and that’s where the action comes, as we got a bunch of releases since the forum started. We’re going to see a little bit of those.
- Analog: Rojo Tierra / Azul petróleoEarth red and Petroleum blue respectively, this concept album from Analog’s factory explores both sides of this artist, but both expresing the same feeling: the urge to change things. Rojo Tierra is made with LGPT and it’s a more introspective and experimental album, more in touch with mother earth, but in the other side, Azul petróleo is a LSDJ hard electro albums with an explicit call to a lost revolutionary spirit.
- Artrex: Dark DimensionsDark and ominous, Artrex surprises us with his first release, sharing with us an album with a sound based on 90’s metal bands and ambient sounds. It’s not intended to be a party album, get a dark place to hear it and don’t make plans to have nice dreams.
- Subway Sonicbeat: Corrupting Static Screens / 1987Those two albums are made with the same tool, LGPT (we love you Marc, we love you hexawe ;D). Corrupting Static Screens is a hard electro release with a bonux remix of his friend, Pulselooper (hey, sup blip?), and 1987 is what you may expect, a tribute to all those post-rock bands maed on the pig, with a lot of hooks on the tracks to rape your brain, because you’ll whistle some tracks the whole day (true story).
- Large Bits Collider: Default viewThe brain of every coder it’s filled with lines of codes about hate to the stablishment, love for music and the inner heart of a Java virtual machine. LSDJ hard noises and badass basslines with bleeps to get a cyberpunk feeling today.
- Love Through Cannibalism: Enma Ai EPDon’t get confused of this release, under tons of effects and drum breaks there’s a lot of bleep bloops that you’ll love. This young man knows really well that robots are bad, but they’re scaring as hell if they’re japanese red-eyed little girls.
Maybe this will look like a bunch of heterogeneous releases without a strong cohesive factor between them. CulturaChip is not a netlabel nowadays, it wasn’t inteded to be that way, but rather
a cohesive effort to share and learn from all the forces present in their global and local shapes.
Also you MUST check Lowtoy’s catalog, one of the netlabels working closely to CulturaChip, where you may find very reputated musicians like Lautaro, Ralp (blipfest y0, remember?) or Snail (a sure bet for next blip ;) ).
Those guys are well compromised on bringing you good (and mostly free =D) music to your ears, so, who can give out this extense offering?
