27. Dec 22

The day has come. 20kbps has completed its second decade. With great pleasure, 20kbps presents to you today: 20y20k (release page) (zip). Artists across all generations of 20kbps contributors, and some who will have their first release here soon, have joined to create this truly exceptional album. Special thanks to old 20kbps artists who dusted off their DAW just to make a track for the compilation. Long live lobit!

07. May 22 Asked why they used Indonesian language for naming their release, the enigmatic artist's reply was: ‘I think because Indonesian sounds urban, which suited my project.’ Enjoy with us these atmospheric tracks by diobati tanpa. (release page) (zip)
25. Oct 21 Origami Repetika, no less. The artist whose free music was recently randomly picked up and used as a background track by a Bollywood-style singer is back with another 20kbps release. No singing this time though, although it's not hard to imagine someone would like to sing or hum a tune to these pleasurable downtempo tracks. So it wouldn't be too surprising if these were also turned into songs by someone out there. Be sure to bring your cardigan to this desert (zip).
07. Aug 21 This new release comes with a track count that 20kbps has never seen before in an individual artist's album. Counting no less than fifty tracks, it's actually a music generating machine, a veritable intonarumore, with an aleatoric element creating endless (well, factorial(50)) configurations, for according to the artist's instructions, the tracks are meant to be shuffled. In Unseq's own words: A detailed exploration of a corrupted mind; thoughts scrambled by inner demons striking at the core. Unseq - Subject Xi (zip)
01. Jun 21 It's in these days of Victorian winter and illness that a gift from long-term contributor and Genetic Trance head Surrogate Sigma (also vziel, Yerunda, Marasmatronics, …) has reached 20kbps. Sparse and austere, it soothes a mind oversaturated with meaning, myth, and metaphor, and instead presents the vastness and cold of a snow desert: Surrogate Sigma - untitled (zip)
07. Apr 21 Back with a new release by artist Mauk Tenieb ( who is making his first appearance on 20kbps. Mauk Tenieb has soaked up Hungarian underground culture during the years he lived in Budapest, as some of his titles show. Now he is presenting us with a 45min illbient album/tape which amalgamates a plethora of images, influences and inspirations. Check it out! Esiön (zip)
26. July 20 Weathered by yet another month, 20kbps is thankful for the opportunity to present Wonder & Suspicion in Cryptomnesia (zip), a 10-track album by Origami Repetika. Incorporating only the finest of dreamy shoegaze jangle pop, these are songs that evoke the subtle emotions that call for new words to be invented. (See for inspiration.)
28. June 20 It was a real treat for the new label administration when composer and fellow musicology graduate Slow Wave Sleep appeared out of the blue and gifted 20kbps with this beautiful song of his, which he had chiptune producers Megus and Tiasu arrange into two masterfully crafted versions. Built around a clear‑cut vocal line, sung in Italian in one of the two versions, this release is a strong example of netaudio as a melting pot for traditionally oriented composition and digital genres, producing alloys that can have intriguing properties. Slow Wave Sleep - Elogio della follia (zip)
14. June 20 From the glitches and bleeps of track a to the mellow piano chords of track c to an extended atmospheric drone finale, this EP presents us with a variety of musical expressions employed by producer slowfreq, who is releasing on 20kbps for the first time. slowfreq - tunnel (zip)
31. May 20 The first submission sent to 20kbps's new inbox came from Yeah I Know It Sucks's own Kai Nobuko (aka Toxic Chicken). It is a one-track single consisting of a fifteen-minute long track of pleasant IDM. Good for imaginary ballets in imaginative (or imaginary?) minds. Kai Nobuko - Typical Trip (zip)
Also, 𝕙𝕒𝕡𝕡𝕪 𝕓𝕚𝕣𝕥𝕙𝕕𝕒𝕪 𝕄𝕒𝕥𝕙𝕚𝕒𝕤! 🎆
28. May 20 On the subject of political statements being made by netlabels in general, and 20kbps in particular, the founder of 20kbps has this to say.
18. May 20 And what better song to start the new chapter with than the one that was written for the one who started it all. There are two songs, actually. They're by Origami Repetika, who runs sub65 and hosts The Lowdown, the radio program for the lobit scene. Enjoy Origami Repetika - A Friend in Space and Time (zip).
17. May 20 To clarify the current and future situation surrounding 20kbps, an announcement has been published. Please read it here.
29. Jan 20 This may be the final 20kbps update, because of my declining health. Before we come to the new releases, make sure you've read The Hardliner's blog post about 20kbps. Our three likely final releases are:
Tiholaz - Playing the Piano for Five Minutes (cEXc Remixes) (zip) by Matri Oxar,
Summerhit (zip) by daftN0!ze and
Sunhigh & Trenchlow (zip) by Mi Croevkhas.

It's almost 20 years that 20kbps has been started and I'm very happy to see that there are still new lobit netlabels and even radio-shows getting founded these days. So while 20kbps may not be active in the future, the lobit scene is stille alive.

20. Nov 11 d0x10 - ease trip sit-(20k329)-2011. d0x10 (soundcloud) is the alter ego of finnish artist and all-rounder Jukka-Pekka Kervinen (wikipedia). He has started the underground lobit label sphicot last june. After notable outputs on labels like bydlocore, limit cycle, Laptop Hooligans Net Label, Cubiculo Noise Recording, Top Of The Flops and many others, we are very happy to have him on board with us. ease trip sit is some dry experimental glitch shit, that is refined with dysfunctional micro house power. It is based on three loops he wrote, one for NES, one for Psytexx tracker running on an old Palm Tungsten and one for OPL3 raw data. Extremely exciting stuff! Topical background comes from a news article, which reported, that and got Blacklisted as Pirate Sites by Major Advertiser. Every track title is thus an anagram of the term "pirate sites": Iterate Piss, Easiest Trip, Sitarist Pee, Ear Spites it and Apes Tries it.
02. Nov 11 Origami Repetika - Pharmaceutically Damaged-(20k328)-2011. Origami Republika, the master of psychadelic chill out is picking us up again.
The opening tune Baby, I Can Fly Like a Bird is what a perfect sunny sunday morning in spring sounds like.
In the next track, Bugget Dragoon, which is a bit groomier, it looks like that blue sunday morning sky's getting overclouded suddenly.
The ep ends with an easy listening krautrock song, Kowboy Niggaz on Ponies, an antipode to the first two electro lounge pieces, yet also concamitantly their logical consequence. Metereologic disturbances breaking loose. The thunderstorm you've been longing for.
30. Oct 11 june lauren prescott - per suonarsi con calcolatore rotto-(20k327)-2011. June Lauren Prescott (visit her youtube-channel) is a young student of musicology at the university of Graz. It was only recently that she became interested in the computer as an artistic aid. The debut ep features interpretations of works from the baroque era.
It starts with two toccate, Matthias Weckmann's toccata in re minore followed by toaccata in fa maggiore bwv 450 by the famous Johann Sebastian Bach. Next is a take on of Orlando Gibbons fantasia in la minore. The rear end light, shining bright, is a wonderful version of Joseph Bodin de Boismortier's la decharnee.
You'll probably heard electronic cover versions of (pre-)classical pieces before, but this one is different: It's not meant to be funny and it's not meant to be cool. Prescott is not paying tribute to the zeitgeist, rather she's driven by the desire to crystallize the essence of these baroque compositions.
31. Jul 11 sea_office-_freon-(20k326)-2011. welcome to the arcane world of sea office! a world of mistuned pianos, vintage cassette recorders, cheap guitars and spooky ambient noises - all condensed into this ubercool mini ep. sea office is better known as lockbox (bandcamp, soundclound), a 17 year old fog hop producer from denver. together with a guy called sumguh he runs fog rattle.
24. Jul 11 genetic_trance_-_sour_action-(20k325)-2011. we are back from summer break, which we spent in kjiv (can only recommend it). the nice guys we are, we brought you a sweet little souvenir. did we say sweet? well, that was a lie. our chemists informed us that the actual pH-value of this release is a blank 0. genetic trance (genetic trance) jacks it to the 21st century. you'll love it.
04. Jul 11 cat_pain_black_udder_-_111-(20k324)-2011. this is now the 4th release in a row with a very special concept. cat pain black udder sets out from united kingdom to release a hundred tracks, every one uniquely named with a number between one and hundred. the tracks are published on ep's and albums which have as name a number greater than hundred. so far he released on the pet goat, ethno indigo, doministiku, pigdurt and the somewhat bizarre datahex. as the pieces are meant to be played in random order, this album marks our first release without a track order. one of the highlights features a recording from the artist's childhood, in which he tells us about his magic boots. a journey that never ends.
26. Jun 11 hertzcanary_-_whµ_do_birds_sing_so_gaµ-(20k323)-2011. simply the best! it has been somewhat quiet on the northern front the last years. but eons of waiting are over - hertzcanary's (abulia concepts) longed for new album is finally here. the new chapter in her obsession with birds goes beyond the scope of accustomed song structures: in der tritt von der alten she interweaves robot gonzo-style short story telling and elaborate bit hop sound with unprecedented artisanry. in sixteen tracks (of which the shortest takes only a second) she references german trash talk shows of the nineties, late night phone sex ads (in the humorous dezimalfetischist) and mc ayrton senna. music that will listen to you. time to bounce and jump!
25. Jun 11 Lee_Rosevere_-_Symphony_For_Monotron-(20k322)-2011. symphony for monotron embodies a very unique distribution concept: it is released in three movements on three netlabels. the 1st movement is on 8ravens, the 3rd movement is on proc (it's so groundbreaking our dear nethead colleagues failed at proper title naming). but guess who has the 2nd movement! yeah, that's right, we're very happy to announce the return of the happy puppy mastermind, who proves himself to be a true monotron virtuoso. excuses un-acceptable. download and play this opus post-haste.
05. Jun 11 microbit_project_-_sign-(20k321)-2011. microbit project is one of the big figureheads of lobit music. created at the end of 2008, it inspired other artists and enlightened listeners all over the world. this mash-up release is in now way different - never have you heard a barely legal bitrate (just around 18) sound like this before! floppypop on the rise.
29. Mai 11 Pollux_-_Music_Is_My_O²-(20k320)-2011. pollux is a son of zeus turned into an orange giant star, 34 light-years from earth. you can totally hear that. early enough for the feast day of the dioskouroi on july 15 we present you this immortal piece of ambient electronica. he is also head of the praise worthy underground label sirona.

23. Mai 11 vziel_projet_-_live_improvisation_2011-01-08-(20k319)-2011. don't work, make noise! judgement day got deferred once again, so we keep releasing. well, we would have anyway. somehow, the failing of the apocalypse is disappointing, as these experimental ambient drone like noise impro's would have made for a very apt soundtrack. vziel projet is a project by alex ischenkau who previously released on 20kbps as yerunda projet, genetic trance and marasmatronics projet. he is also the head of genetic trance, the netlabel with probably the highest output ratio in the world. they started last autumn and have already about as much releases as we do. that's sick! but the release is good - download and save it. you know for when.
21. Mai 11 HardPORNnoises_-_fuck_your_mouth-(30k318)-2011. fuck your mouth is a conceptual piece of audio art, split in three main parts: fuck, your and mouth. the strong message is accompagnied by pornographic front and back covers. adult entertainment by the head of justnoiseit. enjoy the last day!

07. Mai 11 there's now a radio-show in town that is concerned with lobit stuff only. episode one of tibol featured 20kbps classics. it's hosted by toxic chicken and pollux.
25. Apr 11 Ploof_&_Consistency_Nature_-_The_Universal_Mail_Titans_Are_Dead-(20k316)-2011. the universal mail titans are dead, but who cares? the universal sound titans are alive and once again joined forces to build landscapes of vivid sonic imagery. ploof and consistency nature are both from california, usa. together or alone they published on sirona, justnoiseit, genetic trance, default, microbit, 4m@, justwallit and proc. and hopefully more on 20kbps soon!

13. Feb 11 6pyT_-_NES-(20k312)-2011. this is a chip noise ep by russian artist 6pyT (takkeherrie, nowaki and proc). 4 short and nice compositions - obsessed minimalism for the win. feels like spring!

Apr 04 kaYnyNdeE_-_her-(20k077)-2004. kaYnyNdeE lately bought some analog machines and did some stuff with it. here is the respectable result! the songs cover different stories, all connected to the subject 'females' or the absent of them, like in 'okfun' which is about masturbation. read the 'what it's about' text file included with this release. each track is based on a loop, with kaYnyNdeE muting and unmuting parts. btw, if you haven't checked out his netlabel mp3death, you should do it by now.
02. Apr 04 mc_iedh_-_hug_my_gas_ep-(20k076)-2004. it's time to introduce you a new musician on our netlabel. on his first release he presents us 3 tracks, idm style with microsound and thrill'n'bass influences. it's a baffling mix of juicy and junky barf beats. he uses ludwig drums, paiste cymbals, promark drum sticks and mallets, remo drum heads, mapex pedals and fig newton cookies to achieve his unique sound. mc iedh's work is also represented at micromusic.
30. Mar 04 atarix_-_sadoru_state-(20k075)-2004. this is atarix' first album on 20kbps rec. it's kind of a mini-album, with 9 short tracks which are all about one minute long, and one 5 minutes long track at the end. it's like a bad trip to your deepest nightmares, nothing for popcorn-gossups lovers. perhaps it can be described as dark acoustic ambient glitch. sadoru state was made using old-fucked up acoustic guitar, cheap mic & some electronic equitment. this is definitely a felicitous piece of art.
22. Mar 04 minimalist_-_light_ep-(20k074)-2004. minimalist is back on track with a convincing three track ep. the first 2 tracks show his first footsteps with fruity loops, the third one is made with logic like his other tracks. if you know his work, you won't be surprised by the tracks respectability. cool, straight techno, just what you need.
