Sasha Savenko i put this on and drift away into the void -- except in this void, the tunes are jamming and calming all at once. Favorite track: bird hell is real believe me.

The Bedroomcore project was initially started because I stumbled upon the tag while wading through the swampy wasteland known as Bandcamp explore. I had been familiar with the tag as I had used it to describe small time ambient acts when I was younger. The first artist I found under this tag was Pearl Diver, a local artist from Detroit making hazed out snippets of looped samples and pretty bass guitar. I thought it would be easy from there on to find other artists that fit the tag "bedroomcore" and still represent what we were trying to do as a label. This kind of thing is never easy though; many emails and months later we finish up the project with 17 different artists from all walks of tape culture and DIY culture. Some of our favorite label-heads are represented here, Kevin Greenspon from Bridgetown Records, Stars Are Insane from Rok Lok Records, and Stupid Bummed from Hair Growth Records. They all were very nice and welcoming to a newer label like Hacktivism.

We also were able to work with some newcomers who are destined for greatness; Dear Tracks, Californian Sleepovers, Elizabeth Colour Wheel, Soft Youth, Moral Guest and Similarity offer up great slices of Dream-Pop and Shoegaze while there are some more melodic indie rock moments with The Normal Years and Charles Rogers. Bedroom pop artists dandelion hands and handsome eric provide original cuts and Kevin Greenspon and Apollo Vermouth submitted two classic ambient pop songs.

Overall, Bedroomcore Vol. 1 stands as a representation of what Hacktivism is trying to do as a label and we are so lucky to have worked with all of these great artists on this compilation.
