DEMOVIBES – Nectarine is reborn and on top form

A few readers to my blog may recall the article I wrote when the excellent streamed Nectarine site was hacked and brought down by a script kiddie who had nothing better to do.  After that happened the support from the sites fans was massive, this blog received massive hits from users desperately trying to find out what had happened to their beloved site, and when organizers of the site asked for donations to help restart the project, again the response to them was overwhelming.  That was a testament to how much the site was loved by its users.

For those who didnt see my original reports and the comments of support that were made, you can read them HERE and HERE.

The site provided streaming of a massive library of old demo scene tracks that anyone who was living through the late 80’s and 90’s will remember fondly.

I am now pleased to report (and shame on me for not keeping up to date with the site) that its back up and running with a new logo, new admins, but the same great site it always was (if not better)

I strongly urge anyone with a love of electronic/retro demo scene music to get over to this site and support it.  The community is friendly and relaxed and once signed up (obviously for free) you can request songs, get involved in chat and all manner of demo sceney things!

  1. I just want to point out that Demovibes radio is a new effort, started by a former admin of nectarine (arab) and some volunteers, and coded from the ground up.

    We’re still missing a lot of features from the old nectarine (most notably song upload and the extensive data / music db), but we’re getting there.

  2. Thanks for letting me know. I will make sure any updates to your site are posted here.

    Best of luck with one of the best streaming music sites on the Net!
