Posted by

INCOMING TRANSMISSION


Howdy y’all!

This summer has been crazy for chiptune with releases like our own ‘Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 5,’ Cheapsh0t’s ‘Influx,’ and Shirobon’s ‘Pleasure Island.’ But this album is something I really couldn’t ignore writing about. We finally have a new album from the amazing folks at Thebasebit Recordings with Tri Angles’ ‘REBEL SOUL,’ which is the first they’ve put out in over a year. Let’s take a look at what Tri Angles has brought to the table this time!

What’s On Tap – Prof.SAKAMOTO

Posted by

Welcome to the inaugural edition of ‘What’s on Tap?’, a monthly article combining chip music and an exquisite craft beer pairing. Contrasting with President Hoodie’s Beer & Chip Manifesto series, we will talk about a general beer style to pair with the album, along with several recommendations for specific brews. The musical main course this month is a new release by Prof. Sakamoto, a Japanese VGM composer whose wonderful work has not yet been reviewed here on The ChipWIN Blog. In addition to composing soundtracks for (real) video games, Prof. Sakamoto is working on chipmusic inspired by imaginary retro video games. The most recent entry in the series is ‘INSERT vol. 3 – NINJA or DIE’, featuring a ninja protagonist in contrast with previous themes of action/adventure and a space shooter.
