Djablo - Rymdakademin EP
This EP comes out of an obsession with cassette tapes. When Djablo was a kid he used to record his own radio shows in his bedroom using old semi functioning cassette recorders his grandfather reluctantly gave him. His grandfather collected huge amounts of tapes, he had a whole wall full of them and there was something magical about them.

All tracks produced, mixed and funked up by Djablo. Recorded in Monotronik LoFi @ Planet Funkatron.

About the release
The LoFi revolution is here. Everything about this release comes from a deep love for beat making and generally making things yourself. We make the tape ourselves, by hand we painstakingly copy each one. Why? Because both me and Smutskatt come from an era of lofi tape recordings, 8-bit video games and generally an age when things weren't so easy. I remember sitting in friends houses waiting for 20 minutes for a video game to load. 20 minutes! We hope you enjoy this release as much as we have making it.

Smutskatt prefers the Roland SP404 for his lofi sampling sessions. For this tape he sunk into his crates of 80's funk and disco. We are glad he did, the end result is incredible.

One of Djablo's best kept secrets (not anymore). Process anything thru this little monster and it's sounds incredible. Lofi sweetness.

The secret weapons of Smutskatt all in one picture. Sid Station, SP-404 and the one and only OP-1. Damn.

Djablo "1982 (beta release)"
We live in a world of constant beta. We change ourselves to better fit the new challenges of our lives. But what happens to all those unpolished things? Things that were left behind, versions of ourselves that had so much promise but never reached the final cut?

This is the beta release of Djablo's upcoming new album "1982". Ten tracks from the album plus two exclusive never before published hidden tracks as a bonus.

The full release will feature more tracks and alternate versions of the beta ones.
