I heard of this album because I was tagged on Twitter. Not even @'ed. Just tagged. Don't matter though. Get me your album somehow. Doesn't have to be a classy PR letter. Just make sure I know about it. So without much more info than that though, this didn't exactly shoot to the top of my must listen list. During a shuffle through the latest albums I've got here, the Track “Abyss” popped up. It starts off slow, but then BAM, once it really kicked off, I had to stop what I was doing, writing an earlier episode of this, and say, 'what the H is this?” The H it's Linanni Vaanija. Grab the album for ten euro, and you should.Read More
Have you ever played the classic Game Gear title Risky Raftin'!? Well you sir are a filthy liar, because the only thing about this game that exists is the kick ass album by Stettes. Funky dance tracks, foreboding arrangements, and even a very nice spacey chiptune jam in Lunar LakeRead More
Another one of a kind album out of Jay Tholen. Tholen's serene use of electronics, samples, and his own voice evoke a very specific mood. Something between a one man band and a one man church. It is authentically Jay Tholen though.Read More
There is something really familiar about the latest album (and album cover) from BType. Perhaps from some long distant time…
What I do know is that we got a trio of chiptune based hip hop tracks from BType!Read More
Where are the seven other remixes? I'm not sure. I'm going to have to look into it. This one is more than worth worrying about now though. Five intense remixes that could best be described as metal glitch chiptune hip hop beats? Something like that. It's temp sound solutions tuesday though! You know the drill by now. Prepare your brain for some quality sounds and hit play.Read More
There is only one way out of FIght City, that's right! By fighting! That is also the only way into Fight City. It's also how you pay for a great deal of goods and services. The point is. DJ Super Sonic takes that wonderful FM chip and channels his inner Yuzo Koshiro to create the blood pumping sounds of Fight City. If you need some music that makes you want to start a fight, then move slightly to the right, just so you can start another fight, then this is your soundtrack!Read More
These c&s stock reports are my favorite thing these days.
As if Shawn Phase himself were to say, 'Hey geno, want to hear half an hour of classic game soundtracks along with some murderous drumwork and esoteric intro's that sometimes sound more like an in ring promo than an album opening.'
That is a world we live in, right now thanks to shawn phase and his long running series of c&s stock reports.Read More
A very interesting collection of arrangements and sounds from Shiryu. Two discs worth of Castlevania based chiptunes in both NES and SNES formats. If you need more Castlevania VGM, and you do. We all do.Read More
All new chiptunes from Pulsing and via Pterodactyl Squad. We've got a seven track collection of Game Boy compositions, inspired by a variety of genres, along with memories of Earthbound. That is a whole bunch of things I enjoy, and I enjoy this album too!Read More
It's another Temp Sound Soutions Tuesday, and you know what that means! Temp Sound Solutions, Tuesday!
More incredible sounds from the mind of Shawn Phase of c&sstockreports with a new list of all the tracks he deems worthy of inclusion. For 11-6-16 it's a tribute to the endearing chiptune compositions of Alex Mauer. I love the music of Shawn Phase, clearly, but I am also a sucker for the incredible works of Alex Mauer. Combined though, they upgrade their forms like a musical Voltron.
After mentioning the latest in the Prof. Sakamoto Insert series of chiptune albums, I thought I'd go back and mention INSERT Vol.2 - SOLAR SOLDIER. This album is based exclusively on shmups and that is great.
Whelp, looks like it's That Andy Guy, back with an album that was three years in the making. Listen to these vibrant, game inspired chiptune jams. TAG runs through quite a few electronic genres, all with an upbeat, often frenetic pace. Grab the album free on That Andy Guy's Bandcamp page, or the DESKPOP SoundCloud page.
Both Shnabubula and sci-fi sports game fiction both hold a special place in my heart. It's the best of both worlds with the latest spo-sci-fi music collection Cybersoccer 4141.
Norrin Radd drops an infectious collection of Sega Genesis FM chip based arrangements,
The four track debut of Weird At Last, a chiptune pop punk group out of Long Island, New York.
Fall into a world of FM chip based techno, IDM, and more with Sega system by Potential differenSe and DETROIT UNDERGROUND
This year, I have decided that the final Tuesday of the month on here will now be known as "Temp Sound Solutions Tuesday!"
This means I'll be talking about at least one temp sound solutions article every month. Near the end of every month I will highlight a classic tss album from his extensive back catalogue, or discuss the sure to be incredible new tunes shawn phase unleashes in 2017.
This month we are playing catch up by talking about a 2016 release from c&sstockreports. Each c&sstockreports album features about twenty solid minutes of hard hitting drum work and incredible renditions of just some of whatever ridiculous amount of tracks Shawn Phase has nailed since the last album.
6-5B features tons of Capcom classics, all getting the shawn phase treatment with over 20 minutes of intense drum work that will power you through even the toughest trials and most trying moments. Make sure you grab the high quality version from the c&sstockreports Bandcamp page for only $4!
