@rmdes listening and I'm loving it. Is this website just you and your electro music buddies or is it kinda like a soundcloud thing?

@eloisa it started more than a decade ago, as a group of friends stocking their home produced tracks in the same umbrella, then it went on saving decades of party/dj mixes from the 90's up to 2000's, mainly from the Brussels/Belgian Techno/Electro/DnB/ scenes.a few years later we got a bunch of mixtapes from a now defunct US radio and we stocked it there too, 2 years ago we got another collection of mixtapes from different parties/raves across Europe and all of this is being saved at BuzzWorkers


@eloisa 100% of the TRACKS are home produced, either with Jeskola Buzz (1998-2004) or with the Hardware Gear studio we developed further down the road after 2004, so there is both computer produced music and plain old school analog electronic music produced with gears like the famous TB303, TR808, TR707, Juno60, Polysix, SH101 & other, also it seems we are a huge collective of different artists but in reality we're less than 10 people behind all these names :)

@rmdes oh. Wow! That's a lot of work!

And quite the response, too. Thank you! :blobaww:

@eloisa My pleasure, I'm just happy someone somewhere is listening to this !!!

@eloisa Over the years we ended up hosting different DJ's and all kinds of rare electronic stuff, I'm not even sure I know & listened to everything that is currently least in the MIX and LIVE sections..

@rmdes that is so awesome. I had no idea about it. I'm happy to know such a thing exists! :)))

@eloisa You can find my creations with the artist name BEN/B.E.N. and other variants of the same name but also AcidNerd, NerdAcid. the artist Yasynth is my brother, Acid Mercenaries is his studio project with analog gear, Air303 or R303 is also him & different friends collaborating.
Bass is another friend with whom we worked for an album that was never released, anyway, it's all there to be listened & used :)

I guess i stopped producing music when playing with the web became more interesting

@eloisa in fact had many version over the years, it was basically my playground to learn how to create website. At the time, there wasn't such nice things like Wordpress the website has been pretty much the same base over the 2 last decades, a listing of mp3, with a player built-in, podcast capabilities came very much later for example, for a long while, the website followed different trends on the openweb, until I tried to replicate some of the soundcloud features

@rmdes are the things under "live" archived streams? Because if so then this is one of the most complete music places for a group that I saw so far! :O

@eloisa Live can be many things, it can our own livesets, either with computers or analog studio. But it can also be other DJ's live set, sometimes people we don't even know, we were just asked to host the files because DJ's are friends or friends of friends, or simply because rare mixes need some home on the internet to stay :)

@eloisa damn, lots of stuff to improve, I almost never spend time as a listener on the site but I should, found some duplicates & there are mixes that should be in Live and vice versa :) I should also make more playlists, its easier to play & easier to explore the different people on the site, maybe during holidays !
BTW this was my last collaboration with Portuguese MC/DJ/producer Johnny Def

@rmdes yesss, give new life to it! :D

It's a really neat project! :blobaww:

@eloisa Looking at it & refreshing my memory of what's in there : all the items starting with a date (somewhere in the 90's) are digital recordings out of K7 tapes we recovered from different people in the Brussels music scene. Then there is a lot of Known Dj's mixes, part of another archive we were asked to host :)

@eloisa I wanted to have my own selfhosted "waveform-like" generation inspired by Soundcloud, social comments and the ability to stock as much music I wanted without limits. unlike soundcloud.
that's how it stayed ever since.I still want to optimize it (waveform generation for each track is only launched when you hit play) so when you are in front of a huge MP3, you really need a fast internet connection to download the entire mp3 & then have your browser to generate the waveform, not ideal :/
