When we got a hold of the EP titled "Onna no Kanjo (1988)" by a mysterious Japanese artist named Yoshida Com we immediately decided this (very) short but awesome album had to be part of our catalogue.
From what we could gather, this collection of Japanese lofi underground electropop songs was originally recorded in 1988 at the Yoshida studio and just recently rediscovered. The tracks were all composed using a Roland D20, a Casio SA21, a Casiotone MT36 keyboard and an Alesis HR16 drum machine.

That's all there is to know. Go ahead and download the album for free here!

P.P. Roy - Watch The Dough Nut Not The Hole - IS OUT!

18th August 2014 by Betty Turpin

Well is a special day indeed.
As promised, slightly late in a classic upitup fashion, it is now time to watch the doughnut.

If you, like us, have been a Rephlex aficionado for a long time and grew up listening to and going mad to "In At The Beep End", then we know exactly how you feel. Remember when we said "After a long stay at the Betty Turpin clinic P.P. Roy has finally been released to revive his music career"?, well that sentence is truer than ever today.

Many of us have been waiting 12 years for this, P.P. Roy's second album and third official release ever. (Ok, there is a few hidden tracks and gems on other compilations if you dig on discogs).
P.P. Roy has always shown a keen ear to relaxing, easy listening music but with an edge, and his love for crate digging is felt throughout all of his music, and is still very much present on this album.

No more bla bla bla, and let the music speak for itself.

Download, listen, focus, enjoy, share, spread, tell your friends and family!

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:
