xi34 updates

June 17, 2019
Today.. we celebrate.. our 10th anniversary!! This webpage started back in 2009 with 2 artists, Eddie Bennett and Brandon Atencio (who now goes by Lowki Sapfoot) and has since launched digital portfolios for 11 additional artists! Over the last decade we have gone through periods of varying activity and countless redesigns but I am happy to say, xi34.com is still alive and well! Today we introduce a simpler, more mobile-friendly design to our artist portfolios, with Lowki Sapfoot's page being the first one to be converted. We also added 12 paintings he has done over the last couple of years. I have also decided to take down XI34 Goods, which was our web store where we sold prints of artwork found on this site. Honestly, we haven't sold much and I'd rather keep our carbon footprint as small as possible and focus solely on being a digital entity. Thank you for your interest and stay tuned for decade number two!

New Artist Alert!! After the dissolution of Albuquerque indie rock band A Man About A Horse in 2010, lead singer Josh Castillo and keyboardist Seth S. Scott formed a new band with drummer Sam Irons called Et Al. In June of 2011 they released their first album titled Cutting Crutches. More than seven years later, a second album has come to light and with it, so has their xi34 page!

Made listening to the music of 11:34 Records rapper Rashad ILL easier by grouping his mixtape singles into a single Soundcloud playlist. Also added a live recording of Modest Mouse's recent concert in Albuquerque to the page of Jeremy Heavner.

New Artist Alert!! Today we welcome video game designer, musician, and visual artist Seth S. Scott to xi34.com. As the keyboardist of the Albuquerque indie rock band A Man About A Horse, Seth has already been featured on this website for years, but these days he's been focusing his creative energy on making video games. He put out an awesome mobile game called CMYK last year and his newest project, titled Membrane, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch this winter!

June 17, 2017
Today marks the 8th anniversary of xi34.com and the introduction of a new way to browse our gallery! Rather than displaying all artists on our home page, we have created 3 new sub-pages: Music, Visual Art, and All Artists. On top of that, we will be rolling out the page of a new xi34 artist very soon!

New Artist Alert! We have been working for over a year on a series of hip-hop mixtapes with Milwaukee rapper Rashad ILL.

Last Friday we opened up a long overdue page for Rashad ILL here at xi34.com so you can now stream all 9 of the aformentioned songs and learn more about Rashad with an autobiography and pictures!

I know it's late and we took all year but you can stop complaining 'cause it's finally here... Two new albums by former Bat Wings For Lab Rats frontman Lowki Sapfoot.

Last month we converted Eddie Bennett's profile to the new layout and this month we did the same for A Man About A Horse.

August 10, 2014 @ 3:40 AM
I've been meaning to write an update for a long time but I keep putting it off. There have actually been several significant updates performed in the last few months, mainly that we added three artists to our gallery! First, we put up the nostalgic drawings of James Bennett; an interesting collection of old cars and buildings, some with detailed specficaitions. Second, we added a brand new streamable 40-minute mix of electronic music produced by Albuquerque, NM DJ Chuck Le Cheeze! Next, we added a streamable 10-song mixtape and 17 streamable singles by Albuquerque hip-hop artist Walt DeeZ! Lastly, we re-opened our off-site online store XI34 Goods at goods.xi34.com! Coming very soon: 12"x18" prints of several Eddie Bennett paintings!!

May 27, 2014 @ 3:26 AM
After many nights of hard work, Brandon Atencio's portolio has been completely upgraded and updated with several new paintings being added to a redesigned and ad-free gallery!

New Live Recordings! We have just added two sets of XI34-exclusive live recordings to A Man About A Horse's page. You may stream them and/or download them for free! Live recordings are the heart and soul of XI34 and we hope to have many more to come.

Happy New Year!! Sorry for the massive amount of time that has passed since the last update. While it has been a slow couple of years, we did finish the site-wide revamp mentioned in the last update and more recently, we gave our home page a much needed facelift. Behind the scenes we have been hard at work creating two new artist pages and once again redesigning this entire webpage.

November 26, 2010 @ 11:56 PM
As we reach the halfway point of our site-wide revamp, the Maxwell Fazio, Bat Wings For Lab Rats, and Where Ends Meet artist pages have been upgraded. We have removed the comments feature from the above pages, placing a stronger emphasis on XI34 Awards. With the newly acquired free space we have inserted a few text ads in hopes of supplementing our own advertising budget. Click away!

October 26, 2010 @ 12:35 AM
XI34 Goods, our off-site web store, has merged with the XI34 Online Art Gallery to create the new XI34.com. You may now purchase the photography prints of Maxwell Fazio and the debut CD of Bat Wings For Lab Rats by clicking the orange "Add To Cart" buttons displayed throughout this website.

HAPPY XI34 DAY! Today marks the one year anniversary of XI34.com! We have come a long way since we first opened; click here to see what this website looked like last year. Thank you to all our artists for being a part of the XI34 early years, we couldn't exist without you. In the realm of updates, we have recently added a Reciprocal Linking page. If you maintain a website of any variety and would like us to post a link to your site, fill out this form.

Completely reconstructed front page and mobile site! E-mail, Facebook, and Twitter share buttons can now be found alongside every piece of art in the gallery as well as our new award system which replaces the basic 1-5 rating scale.

More products, artists and miscellaneous excitement to come in the very near future.

Hello!! Sorry we've been away so long! XI34.COM returns to you today with an ad-free, not quite as purple, and otherwise mostly the same, version of our personally-aclaimed website. We have been (somewhat) busy legitimizing our artist promotion business (11:34 etc.), fine-tuning our online store (XI34 Goods), and participating in many other exciting, yet sadly classified, operations. Keep coming back; great things are coming in just a matter of time.

December 4, 2009 @ 12:00pm
