UPITUP NEWS: Ice ice baby
Upitup is on summer vacation and sends you sunny saluti! Here's a quick news update:
Ergo Phizmiz' upfree was featured on The Guardian's website, Isocore has been interviewed in a spot by NIKE, Tracky Birthday claims to be working on his second album (btw he just cleaned up his blog and created a facebook page, go "like" him), and Jacques Malchance seems to be the first Upitupper to get a record deal! His album "Arpologie" will be released on Strange Life Records (Legowelt's label) soon.
Jonas the Plugexpert released a free album on Arcoplane Recordings, I've heard even Bill Clinton already downloaded it. He's also working on an upitup album right now...
Roglok's music is featured in a wacky new iPhone game called "So Long, Oregon. Let's go find El Dorado".
Our friends at Shake Your Tree stayed busy as well and released the first three issues of their "Edition" series: each handprinted zine is divided into two parts and features the collaboration of an author with an illustrator (who previously meet, have dinner together and decide on a subject for their edition). The release party in Berlin was lots of fun even after the cops came and the owner unplugged the speaker in the middle of Tracky B's live show...
After all Berlin still is the capital of square! Poor cool people.
In the meantime Konrad Kuhn of Hyperground Radio made a nice dj mix on last year's 100th birthday of futurism (we never made that fanzine), go check it in!
