Posted by

When you pump carefree, passionate, modern punk sensibilities through LSDJ, you get ‘Young’ by Boy Without Batteries. This pop-punk chiptune album released by Play It Loud is boisterous, exuberant, and will hook you immediately with send-off tracks that ooze feel-good dance beats like ‘Sophomore Year’:

Stokin’ the Forge: ‘Powers of Two’ by TRIAC

Posted by

A preemptive happy New Year to everyone in the Chip Realm! Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I had the luck of stumbling across TRIaC’s sophomore release, ‘Powers of Two’.  Hailing from Dresden, Germany, TRIaC’s been playing music live since 2009. Coming out a little more than a year after his first release ‘Eat your Bricks’, ‘Powers of Two’ showcases TRIaC’s growth both as an artist and as a master of nanoloop. There’s a lot to love in this album, so let’s hop the fold and get to the heart of the matter.

8-Bit Banter with DjjD: Snareskin – ‘Snares on a Plane’

Posted by

Hey all, DjjD here.

I can appreciate an artist who gravitates towards a persona for his or her music, but gathering 2-3 different pseudonyms for yourself, takes skill. Not only do you have to maintain each one of these on a regular basis, but you have to separate yourself from….yourself to generate compositions for the correlating genres for each name. Such is the case of Snareskin (a.k.a. froxic, conceptor). Whatever you wanna call him, there’s no denying he has a unique ability to blend the chill and smooth with the loud and aggressive.
