Over the years, and up until 2006, when it was shut down, one of the sites that I was harvesting from has been IUMA.com, or the Internet Underground Music Archives, regarded as the first one, dating back to the early 1990's. It was rather sudden, when it went down in 2006, but leading up to that, Archive.org was racing to archive all the music and data at IUMA.com, and managed to get most of the site, before it went down. Archive.org has just recently resurrected IUMA at Archive.org, and while the archive does not have the familiar IUMA site design (which can still be seen in The Way Back Machine, which archived it), one can browse all the free IUMA mp3 files and artist data which was rescued, and so this is allowing me to resume harvesting of IUMA, to gather up all the best of all that was rescued, and getting it onto the show.
In Harvest Number 90, there is a broad assortment of Electronica and Trip Hop from IUMA, as well as the latest releases since the last harvest of the best new electronica from ArtistServer.com, as well as slew of new releases from some of the best artists the station is following at SoundCloud.com and BandCamp.com, and elsewhere.
Harvest Number 90 is a highly diverse show, weighing in at just moments under twelve hours in breadth, with lot's for everyone.
