After a somewhat embarassingly long spring break we're finally back with a new lineup of free releases.
Starting today, it's Büromaschinen's turn. This unbelievably multi-talented artist gifts us with his "Time Capsule Vol. 1", a compilation of early works and experiments dating all the way back to 1999 (for comparison, Netscape was still a thing and Upitup wasn't even born yet).
All the tracks on this EP were composed on an old PC rigged with nothing but Jeskola Buzz – and unlike the ungodly fate that doomed the author of Buzz itself, Büromaschinen's alleged backup-driven-paranoia made sure the original files were stored on an actual file-based "time capsule" which – luckily for us – kept all those .bmx files intact for all those years.

So here we are, almost 20 years later, with this incredibly present-day sounding selection of tracks that were literally brought back from the dead with just a tiny bit of that mastering magic. Enough said: download it for free now.

PS stay around, cause there's more to come.

Orree – who has gained himself a stable seat in the roman members of the Kaiju family – has finally landed on these shores with a kick-ass one hour vinyl-only mix. In this set, performed during the last Kaiju event in Rome last december, he blends a variety of tracks coming from the deep (deep!) underground, creating a selection made of hypnotic, dark and percussive instability.
If you're in Rome next month come see the next Kaiju event, Sat. 8th of March at Muzak Club for this and more.

About Upitup

Up it up?

The slogan "Up It Up!" can be comprehended as a battlecry of digital culture. Unless you "up something up to the network", it stays where it is, unshared (in your brain, on your pc etc.). To "up it up" equally means to "go for it", to "make it hot".

Upitup has been releasing free music since 2003.
Based in Rome, Stuttgart, and Liverpool, we initially just wanted to make our sounds accessible to the public. The idea was to create an open platform for sharing ideas and staying/getting in contact with people. We later realized we're running what's considered a netlabel.

Upitup remains completely uninfected by commercial interests - to the contrary, we love to see the music industry trying to catch up with new technologies while suffering from their self-imposed politics. We are proud to be able to supply our music for free.

Do we need to mention that you can also book us?

With artists all around our polluted globe, from Down Under to Uptown USA, we will turn any party into a raving disco fuss. Feel free to contact us about anything:
