WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP, IT’S NOW OFFICIAL:

THERE WILL BE CHIPTUNES = WIN \m|♥|m/ MERCH. 8)

Thanks to an AWESOMETASTIC merch fairy at Boston 8-Bit (SO MANY ♥’s FOR THOSE CHIPPY CATS!!!) there will soon be an extraordinarily fair priced (merch fairy magic ftw!!!) $15 bundle of ChipWINAWESOME that includes a shirt, a small handful of buttons, & a CRAPTON of awesome stickers (seriously, the stickers are almost the best part!! ;); possibly as soon as the week that the compilation drops!!! The first print will be a limited run, so if you want in on this first batch of EXTREMELY AWESOME CHIPWIN GARMENTY, STICKERY, BUTTONY GOODNESS you better be prepared to act fast!!!! As soon as they’re available (which, of course, I’ll post about like a MADMAN), you’ll be able to find them RITE CHAR:

~SOLD OUT!~

Also, ChipWIN beer coozies are by NO means out of the merch equation yet; we’re still working out the details on that awesomeness is all! In other words, they should be in a bit later merch order. SO WATCH OUT FOR THAT CHIPBEER GOODNESS!!!

Also also, SNEAK PEEK OF SHIRT ART BOOYAH!!!! \m|♥|m/

Front of AWESOMESHIRT. Art will be WAY crisper & brighter on shirt (neon ink FTW!!!!)

NEW CHIPTUNES FTW!!! \m|♥|m/ Among those that I’m posting about today are another excellent single by SMILETRON, not one but two stellar, yet starkly different releases by Starpilot, and a killer set of funky chipgroves by Whitely! The word of the day is PROLIFIC, boys and girls.

Eclipse by SMILETRON

Sparkling by Starpilot

Experimentalist by Starpilot

Decimated by Whitely

And yes, I can’t help but mention that all three of these insanely fantastic artists have tracks on the upcoming Chiptunes = WIN \m|♥|m/ compilation! 3 more EXCELLENT reasons to jump on that when it releases on June 5th. ;)

Yes, to go along with the blog here and the original ChipWIN Fb group, there is now a ChipWIN Fb *page* as well. Why?? SO I CAN GET LIKES BECAUSE I’M A LIKE WHORE, WUTTEHFUKOFIT?!?!? ;333 Actually, the reason I decided to go ahead and make *another* ChipWIN outlet is to give me the capability to post *as* the group itself on Facebook. Will be handy at times. =) TTFN~~

~NEW RELEASES – 5/15~

ALRIGHTY THEN. And now for a post that isn’t about the upcoming compilation (even though, yes, I just added a link there to the promo video. heheh ;3 )! Got a small handful of badass albums just released today that are very much worth checking out.
AND HERE THEY BE! =D

EP 001 (Gnar Dream) by Infinity Shred (the chipartists formerly known as Starscream ;3 )

Wish by Je Mappelle

iPhone Nanoloop Posse Vol. 2 

If you don’t like all/something/at least one track from one of these albums then it may be time FOR YOU TO QUIT CHIPTUNE. Plus, you’re a stinky doodie face. ;333

FYI, while I’m very likely to come up with some weekly features and do some full write-ups as time goes on (as I get a chance to flesh out this website a bit more!), this will likely be the life’s blood of this ChipWIN blog:

short, quick bursts of information relevant to your chipinterests. =D

In other words, just a non-Facebook version of the ChipWIN FB group. =) So if you dig that, be sure stay tuned for more Chiptunes = WIN goodness as time goes on! =D

Also, got a chip album/compilation/project you think I should mention/write about/excitedly babble/make sweet pixelated earlove to? Find me in the ChipWIN Fb Group, my personal Fb page and/or Twitter, or shoot me an email at chiptuneswin@gmail.com and tell me all about it! Good chance you’ll see it pop up on here shortly thereafter! =D
