New Atari EP by Ultrasyd - Chipsters 24 Oct. 2014 23:26
As a member of Brainstorm, Ultrasyd has collected some credits over the last years as a demoscener with his high quality Atari and Amstrad CPC releases. On this first EP, Ultrasyd shows us his latest tricks and mad-skills funkatising the squarewave only YM2149 soundchip, it’s so fat that we had to ask a few times if this is a pure AtariST recording!
The music is full of lovely and positive Demo-vibes, it’s the perfect EDM for the LOLKids and it features some of the coolest Atari Space-Reggae we have ever heard!
Server Changes Are Now Complete! 25 April 2014 23:03
We have completed the migration to the new VMWare server. This is a server that was purchased as an upgrade to the existing CVGM servers, and to give us the expandability we may need in the future as the site grows bigger. In the beginning, CVGM consisted of 2 servers, an ancient Xeon server with 2gb of ram to run the Python code, and an even more ancient AMD dual core server to handle the streams. When these boxes started to break down (they were leased from the datacenter we use) we ended up purchasing our own hardware, with the help of several donations to the site from our awesome listeners.
The new server has 8 3.16Ghz cores and 16gb of ram. It also allows us to split up the resources a little better, so the streams can now have their own little server etc. All good things :) For more details on the technical changes to the site, you can read up on one of these forum threads:

New Icecast Streams!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to jump on the oneliner and ask, or post a message in the forums. Thanks!

Moving To New Server 25 June 2011 12:29
Some time over this weekend, CVGM will be moving to a new, bigger and better server. This new server will give us double the ram, triple the CPU power, and a host of other excellent things. If you find later that you can't connect to the site, try back a little later and everything should be back to normal :)
We only have a short period of time for moving data between the 2 servers, so I apologize for the downtime that may occur ahead of time. I will post more in the forums as it becomes available.

Our Thoughts & Prayers To The People Of Japan 14 March 2011 12:16
Many charities and organizations around the world are setting up donation pages. Don't be scammed! Unfortunately, the world is full of people who are willing to take advantage of people wishing to help others in such a time of crisis. If making a donation, be sure you know about the charity first (we recommend the Red Cross or World Vision charities).
Japan has a lot of work to do yet; They are still facing more widespread problems with their nuclear reactors becoming unstable, many people are yet to be found and there are millions of homes that need to be rebuilt. The world should unite at times like this to help those desperately in need.

New EP By Xerxes - 226 B.C. 16 Nov. 2010 07:35
"Finally I get to present some new music. They are quite different in style, yet they connect on some level. I have tried to explore different moods within the chillout genre without leaving out the usual Xerxes sound. These tracks are exclusive for this EP, and none of them will be duplicated on the forthcoming full length album. Hope you find them enjoyable. Massive thanks to Mogens Skjold for the stunning artwork."
