Commodore 64 is back again!!! Basic V.2

the archaeologist brings you yet another tape from his beat collection, Commodore 64 Basic V.2. the 2nd installment in the C64 series. upgraded and ready to rock. basically, the C64 series is made using a device called a "monome" (google that shit). triggering and manipulating loops in real-time. so what you hear is being sequenced/played in the moment. the beats are being created as they are recorded. totally free form, totally free. suck on that.

space cadet. mission II.

space cadet has returned again from the depths of the galaxy.
mission II is a collection of artifacts and sounds uncovered during that journey.
these artifacts and sounds have been translated by NASA's top scientists working around the clock into a format suitable and safe for the human auditory canal.
the result is 29 tracks of pure space madness. drink the kool aid.
