One of Floppy Totaal's most prolific guests returns! During Floppy Totaal: Magnetic Flux Sascha Müller will spin some extreme floppy records and talk about his life, his passions and the future of disk based technology!

We're very proud to have Adam Frankiewicz of Pionierska Records and Floppy Not News(s) as part of our Magnetic Flux program. Be sure to check out his Speed Floppy Data Workshop at the end of the month!

Quite happy to see the first Floppy Totaal: Magnetic Flux posters, designed by Thomas Karlberg Walskaar, making the rounds. They sure are something neat to look at while we wait till the 31st of August!

Time to get things rolling! On Saturday, the 31st of August Floppy Totaal will visit WORM in Rotterdam for an event entirely devoted to floppy disk music. We call it 'Floppy Totaal: Magnetic Flux'. Adam Frankiewicz, Sascha Müller and Remute are part of a two part program that consists of workshops, talks and performances.

Alright, I wrote a blogpost about my #floppycast adventures: ajroach42.com/floppycasts-1-44

This doesn't have much new compared to my posts from this weekend, but here they are ordered and coherent.

I also posted some audio samples: ajroach42.com/floppycast-examp

Keep in mind that both samples will sound pretty much horrific, but also that each sample is around 100kb for more than a minute of audio.

I prefer the Opus file to the mp3 file, as it's a little less muddy during speech (but ruins music.)

Well, what do you know! Some video's of Floppy Totaal's past are still floating around the web. Here's a very exclusive one from 2015 by the incomparable Kai Nabuko aka. Toxic Chicken: t.co/5nzWkueYZ6 Good times!

Floppy Totaal has a new website! Here you can read about the direction the project will take in the upcoming months. Check it out at: www.floppytotaal.org
