City Guys - City Guys

Two overpaid city slickers hooked on Xanax, fine wine and call girls and found themselves playing way too much Megadrive and not going to work monday morning. In the blurry haze of the rising sun they found they had laid this strange egg of an album, mostly composed of old Megadrive sounds and Sega-inspired melodies, reminiscing of better times, in a very very very fine house, with two cats in the yard.

Watch out, sounds from the Megadrive can hurt cloth-eared nincompoops and 8-bit purists (of whose ranks I used to be part), so please make sur you're equipped accordingly. Otherwise, have fun.

See you soon.

Electric Octopus - Driving Under the Influence of Jams

This is another great release by Belfast-based trio Electric Octopus. On the menu : groovy jazzy smokey instrumentations, to-dance-to rhythms, and as ever, that particular atmosphere which enables one to close his eyes and believe he's enjoying the music in an obscure pub, sitted at a thick wooden table with a pint.

With nine tracks of an average of twenty minute each, which price you can name, I guess that's enough content for your money. Give a little something if you can, and help me get those guys go on a European tour.

Zackery Wilson - SNESQUE

Limitations and constraints may help give shape to art. Zackery Wilson, well-known of the Chiptunes=WIN fandom, created this album by using a different soundfont for each track, and limiting himself strictly to those sounds and to one minute of time per track.

The result is twelve tracks filled with nostalgy made of jumpy melodies that could very well come from an ancient, never-released 90's RPG.

This is a blend of many memories and of course, much love.

Bon appétit.

Remerged - The Unknown Dimension

Thank you Sophocle for this small pearl. It's been a while since I have found anything original in the psytrance world.

Here's the first album by Remerged, a new guy who takes a particular approach, blending frenetic rhythms with bits of dubstep and chiptune, as well as thick layers of chill synths. Special prize goes to the track "Crystal Rhodes".

Download the album for free on Neurotrance Records' website..

Krelez - Random Chiptune Mixes

My heart and soul were struck by lightning today, a pixellated cubic lightning bolt, and I want to share it with you, to dedicate it to all those who spend their day filling the Internet with music and enjoyfulnessery.

I've been looking for new sources of Chiptune music for a long time, and now I found one of the best by randomly searching for "8bit mix" on Youtube. I found Krelez's mixes and the number of my favourite Chiptune tracks has soared over a few days. These mixes compile great music, varying beats and subgenres, coming with full tracklists and links to find the tracks and the album used, which is not always an easy task as they come from various places, be it Bandcamp, 8bitpeoples, Chiptune=WIN or more obscure websites.

Unlike many Chiptune mixes on the web, Krelez's lack this atmosphere of sad nostalgic teen looking for low-definition love at school. No. Jumpy beats or thoughtful atmospheres are what you will find here.

There are links to download the tracks and the mixes in each one's description, a large majority of which is free-priced and/or creative commons, so just do yourself a favour and click play. 

There's also a radio ! 24/7 pure chiptune goodness !

Suplington - Tokyo Reflections

Here's an album on which it's really difficult to put a label. Suplington's music alternates between strange, chillesque, ethereal soundwaves and robotic electronic rhythms. I want to say experimental in a way, but in truth isn't everything experimental ?

Those harmonies make me think about Lost Twin, a great producer of weird dreamy music.

I'd say this music is fit for all adventurous headsets.
