Various - Bugged Out Classics by Zip

Designed by Zip and featured at http://www.zipdesign.co.uk, I really like the aesthetic created for this compilation from the techno-oriented Bugged Out club night. The designers claim this is "lo-fi tech" and it's that use of ASCII art that links it closely with the music. Being a 'classics' collection, it is yesterday's forward-thinking machine music and is ultimately restricted by the technology of its era. The artwork seems to heighten that concept of retro-futurism.
