upfree71 - GeneratA by Acchiappashpirt is out now!

12th June 2018 by Upitup UK

Not very active online.. but very active IRL. Our 15th year started with a bang with our set at Bangface Weekender and our huge XV Birthday Weekender in Liverpool (pictures out very soon!) and now we have lined up an incredible series of new albums from new signings, is goin to be a good summer!

We start with Rome based art duo Acchiappashpirt formed by Albanian poet Jonida Prifti and sound artist SDT, a pillar of the Roman noise scene. And they are here with their first “trap sound poetry experiment”. The duo, inspired by the work of photographer Julius Eb, create a catchy combination of noise sculptures and evocative auto-tuned spokenword poetry (in albanian and italian). GeneratA is a full lenght ode to the post-reconstruction “New Generations” of the whole world, with deep industrial vibes and nods to dance culture.

To get a taste of Acchiappashpirt, check this video for the track Ari I Ajrit:

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:
