A pleasant the end of May to one and all of the ChipWIN nation! This month, it was my distinct pleasure to review ‘The Blossoming Years’ by Russian artist MmcM. This Ubiktune release is a collection of his early works, spanning 1999 to 2001. Mmcm composed all but two of the tracks on the album using a ZX-Spectrum and ProTracker 3. Mikhail Ivashenko and Oleg Nikitin each contributed a remix to the album, in the way of ‘Bugs in My Mind‘ and ‘Changeability‘ respectively.
This album is truly epic in scope, weighing in with a hefty 24 tracks. I really enjoyed and appreciated most of the tracks that are here, but I can only give a fitting review to just a handful of them in the space I have. As such, these are the four tracks that were my absolute favorites on the collection. By no means does that mean the other twenty aren’t worth checking out. They are, and I encourage you to take your own listen, and find your own, be it four or all of them. With that out of the way, let’s dive in.
