Jump City Records is “an experimental, open-source record label that produces and releases its albums through a series of python bots.” That means the label’s output—from sourcing sound samples to mixing, creating and naming tracks—is all automatic. Basically, you just flip a switch and the script chugs out experimental noise records with individual artist names and artwork. All hail our robot overlords! Check out an example from the label’s SoundCloud above and download the script here.
