It always interests me to see how the mobile music community and ecosystem is growing and developing and the launch of apptronica can only be a good thing as far as I can see. It has people behind it who are passionate about the mobile world and love creating music. So I wish it every success.
Here’s the news/release post:
Apptronica president Clif Johnston worked with ambient music producer SmiteMatter to reissue the artist’s album Technopolis Lost as the netlabel’s first album launch. Originally released in 2011, Technopolis Lost is widely recognized as the breakthrough album for the genre, being composed and produced from start to finish using only an iPod touch and a first generation iPad. The reissued version of Technopolis Lost features new artwork along with a previously unreleased bonus track, Time On A Leash. The album is available now from the Apptronica website as a free / “name your price” download.
Other artists signed to the Apptronica label include Swedish bass music producer Jesper Jones and Australia-based iPad-only producer PantsofDeath. The netlabel will also release music by Mood481, the artist name used by Apptronica president Clif Johnston, who is arguably the most prolific iOS music producer on the planet with over 17 pure iOS releases.
Scheduled for launch later this month, Apptronica magazine will feature articles, app reviews and tutorials by some of the top experts in iOS music production today. Advisors and contributors include Chip Boaz, creator of the iOS Music and You blog and podcast; video tutorial producer Ryan Hemeon of iOS Mars; synth expert Fletcher Kaufman of Sunsine Audio; German iOS musician Martin Neuhold; writer and video producer John Walden from Music App Blog; and prominent iOS music blogger Tim Webb of Discchord.com.
