DER releases now available in record shops (well, 1 record shop)

DER releases are now available via Pure Groove Records of London, either online at www.puregroove.com, or instore, at 6-7 West Smithfield, London, EC1A 9JX.

Very exciting news I'm sure you'll agree! Huge thanks to Simon for agreeing to stock such a ridiculously retro format!


DER Compilation!

Diskette Etikette Rekords will soon be compiling their first ever compilation, which should be their 10th release! It will be entitled "Now That's What I Call Retro-Futurism Vol.1", and will of course be released on Floppy Disk!

Therefore we are now accepting submissions, whether you've worked with us before or not. Can be short bursts of noise, lo-bit stuff, full band grindcore, anything goes! Any format, any length, any style, as long as it's only around 150kb in size!

Deadline for submissions is the 19th June, so get to work and make me proud!

(PS DER will take a short break from tomorrow, so I will respond to anyone either submitting anything or wanting to buy something when DER is back open for business, probably around the second week of June!)

DER003 out tomorrow!

The third release from Diskette Etikette Rekords will be out tomorrow, on the label's 2 month anniversary!

DER003 Fm-Ra - Timeless

4 tracks of ambient synth explorations from Portugal, spread across 4 lovely red floppies, and limited to just 10 copies! Reminiscent of Tangerine Dream or Oneohtrix Point Never, the concept of 'Timeless-ness' sits rather well with the whole retro-futurist thing we've got going on; besides which it sounds ace, so make sure you check it out before it disappears!

Email neil.jennings84@googlemail.com to buy a copy for just £5.00 inc. P&P to UK. (email for other shipping rates and payment methods)

Timeless will also be out soon for free download via www.archive.org.

DER004, 005 and 007 are being prepared as we speak, so keep your eyes peeled!
