Ghostly Jukebox

Ghostly International was founded in Ann Arbor, Michigan by Sam Valenti IV in 1999…

The label has since widened its focus to include groups such as Skeletons & The Girl-Faced Boys and Mobius Band, whose rock-based sound meshes with the label’s eccentric leanings. Also known for forward-thinking package design by the likes of Will Calcutt and Deanne Cheuk, as well as the Boy, Cat, and Bird logos of Michael Segal, Ghostly International aims to be a complete aesthetic experience.

Ghostly International followed up Disco Nouveau with two more successful compilation albums featuring its artists: Idol Tryouts and Idol Tryouts 2.

Ghostly International also runs a companion label, Spectral Sound, dedicated to more dancefloor-oriented music coming from some of the same artists on Ghostly (such as James T. Cotton, another moniker of Tadd Mullinix, aka Dabrye).

JukeLab 101

100 records for your party jukebox. Indie, classics and our current favorites. https://jukelab.com/

This is the jukebox that started it all!

One day we were sitting at a dive bar with an amazing jukebox, and we thought, “why can’t we have this at our next party?”

So we built a playlist, built an app, hooked up a key pad, and it was a hit.

Everyone loved looking at the artwork, picking their favorite tracks, and guessing who picked what. There was no fighting over the bluetooth, and nobody playing music that didn’t fit the vibe.

Curation, interaction, control. That’s what JukeLab is all about.

Enough Records Jukebox

Enough Records was the first Portuguese netlabel.

Their catalogue covers diverse genres, drifting from the more experimental idm and dark ambient sounds to pure electronica, indie pop or post rock.

It includes over 500 albums, EPs and compilations, freely downloadable on the Internet Archive under a Creative Commons license.

This model of sharing music re-opened our eyes to how much freedom and control artists and fans alike can enjoy.

You can find more information about enoughrecords at http://enoughrecords.scene.org.

303 for u and me

March 3rd is a special day for electronic music nerds.

3/03 is a day to pay homage to the Roland TB-303, a bass synthesizer that was originally designed to accompany drum machines. It was a commercial failure, but it found a second life in the hands of Chicago house producers, who used it to create the acid sound.

I made this playlist to celebrate the 303. It’s a collection of acid house, acid techno, and acid trance tracks that I’ve been listening to over the past few years. I hope you enjoy it!
