Rich H Dirty. Very dirty bleeper music. Tufty manages to get some funky grooves from the ZX Spectrum Bleeper. I've listened to this album alot, and hum the tunes without thinking. Totally recommended! Favorite track: Rude-House Beeps.

Bootlegger because those beats should just not be physically possible on 1 bit - the whole album is great. Favorite track: Electrostatic.

about

Spectronica is a 1-bit ZX Beeper album written for and recorded from vintage and modern ZX Spectrum hardware.

Harnessing the rich harmonics of 1-bit lo-fi and exploring synth, digital, speech synthesis, triangle waves, phaser and minimalistic square wave beeps.

No dedicated sound chip was used to produce the basic tracks just clever, modern 1-bit sound engines developed by ZX Spectrum coder/musicians Shiru and Irrlicht Project.

Tracks 2,4 & 13 have Vocoder speech overdubbued, performed and recorded by me.

Tracks 1,2,4-8,10-14 recorded from 48K Rubber keyed ZX Spectrum.
Track 3 recorded from a 128K+2A ZX Spectrum.
Track 9 recorded from a ZX Spectrum Vega+
Track 15 recorded from a ZX Spectrum OMNI 128K HQ.

Limited edition cassette was produced by Cow Tongue Taco Records
