Nectarine Radio is Back!


Sorry if you already knew this, but out of pure chance I thought I would check to see if one of my favourite web sites – Nectarine Demoscene Radio – was back on-line today, and lo and behold, it was! Nectarine had been streaming classic and modern demo scene tunage across the tubes for years. Site admin Yes had built up an awesome collection (18,000+ mp3s!) and like lots of other people I had saved hundreds of favourite tunes on there, voted on thousands, and listened to probably weeks worth of tunes!

And then some script kiddie went and ruined it for us all. He found an exploit in a script, and wiped the whole database and back-up. The site died and the scene lost a little bit of its heart the same day.

Lots of people wanted to help bring it back. I offered my services (as did many others)  but the events obviously took their toll on the Admin, and the site was destined to be nothing more than a fond memory. I would check back every 4 months or so, just in case, and today I struck gold :)

So I putting a shout out – if you used to listen to Nectarine, or are just interested in 24-hour streaming demo scene coolness, then go over there, register and help to breathe life back into the site again.

    Uhmm, I don’t want to tell you this but it’s been back already since many months. I often listen it … when Kohina becomes too repetitive! 😉

    SLAY is mostly too much four-to-the-floor for me but occasionally they have good remixes.
    Then there’s CGM UKDemoscene radio which isn’t too shabby and CVGM which is kind of a wish-list-radio.

    Like I said, I only bothered checking twice a year or so :) and they didn’t bother mailing all the old people asking them to go back, so it was pure fluke I found out. Arab asked me to “spread the word”, so I posted here!

    I agree about Kohina, a bit chip heavy for me (I *adore* chip, but I need my music mixed up a bit during the day)
