Talking about SID music, here's something that's definately not from this planet:

Yes, that really is just one single SID, using the 2 SIDvoice/ 3 digivoice player by The Human Code Machine and some ingenious sound design by LMan/MultiStyle Labs.

[album] Corrosão Seletiva by Pulselooper

Gotta take a break from all these mindblowing demos. Instead, I'm gonna promote this excellent new Gameboy release, by no other than the mighty Pulselooper. He's back, and he's pissed! From the release notes:
Over the past decade, a new Middle Class has emerged in Brazil. Very partly due to government aid that since 2002 had as its main point the extinction of extreme poverty, leveraging classes C to B and B to A. This new Middle Class, abnormally, took for itself a point of view of hatred and rancor to the same popular programs that, in a way, helped create their new status. And they recently went to the streets, asking for demands like the obligatory prison of young people under 18 years, dreading an absurd so-called "communist government in Brazil" and also supporting the back of the military dictatorship from the 60s and 70s. This album is a tribute to them.

A direct download can also be found here.

40 Years Microsoft

Today we salute an unlikely birthday candidate ;) Yes, it's been 40 years since a certain Bill Gates and a certain Paul Allen founded some obscure, long forgotten company named Micro-Soft. I'm sure nobody remembers them nowadays, but once upon a time they were well known for fabulous products like the Xenix operating system, and the Z-80 SoftCard addon for the Apple ][.
