This release deserves a bit of commentary for its novel and unique creation. It has been praised by lo-fi-digital music heads as well as scratch and battle dj's since it combines Atari and Commodore64 samples, soundbites, lock groove beats, and even a couple respectable techno-break tracks that were programmed on the original machines. One side is Atari-centric and the other is devoted to the C64. There are also a couple audio-encoded programs for the Atari and C64 systems on this disc that can be used to install old public domain 8-bit audio software for each respective platform. These guys are dedicated to authentic 8-bit artwork and this release is a fine document to their progress in the medium.
