Founded by darkwave artist Petridisch in 2018, Fish Prints Inc. aims to bring curiously composed sounds to the world, past and present, with no specific or planned genre ties binding.
They become the latest label to sign up for the first MiniDisc Day, and for the uninitiated, they release music on cassette, CD, and handmade minidisc editions – in addition to limited related ephemera.
When the idea of IMD was presented to us, we couldn’t resist participating! Clearly everyone involved is doing this for the pure love of Music on Minidisc, and all presented in our own styles. FP truly believes MD is the best of CD and cassette type technologies rolled into a palm-sized rewriteable (permanetly cased) disc, with unique compression (ATRAC) that offers a truly different sound from any other physical format.
Influential Vaporwave label – Palm ’84 – is the latest to sign up for MiniDisc Day – an event organised by the founder of My Pet Flamingo to celebrate the enduring love many music fans feel for MiniDiscs.
Established in 2018, Palm ’84 put out new releases every Saturday and have worked with scene luminaries including: Tupperwave, HATENA, UNI DELUXE and ConsciousThoughts.
Synthwave legend Timecop 1983 will be taking part in MiniDisc Day 2020 with an MD edition of his seminal EPs – Lovers Part 1 & 2.
Timecop 1983 – from Eindhoven in the Netherlands – is known for his cinematic ‘Dreamwave’ production style, and his album ‘Night Drive’ became the first synthwave album pressed to MiniDisc when it was released last year.
Originally released as two separate digital EPs on Timecop’s BANDCAMP, TimeSlave Recordings have signed ‘Lovers’ up for MiniDisc Day.
Label founder, Enzo Van Baelen, said:
“Jordy is one of the best producers out there and he’s a trailblazer anyway having been the first retrowave producer to release on MiniDisc.
“This, however, is an album that has never been released on physical formats of any kind and it’s a beautiful collection of Dreamwave songs.”
