Sam Shares: 8Static Fest 2016

INCOMING TRANSMISSION


Y’ello there chip-winners!

I’m back again with another review, but this time, it’s gonna be different. I had the pleasure of going to 8Static Fest a few weeks ago (as a performer too!) and I thought what better way to share my experience of the whole event by making a review! And don’t worry, there’s plenty of memes, hence the Philadelphia chiptune scene.

Gettin’ ChipFIT — Exercising at Home on the Cheap

Posted by

Here there ChipWIN! I’ve got something a little different for you this month. Inspired by Hoodie’s exploration into the topic of mental health, I want to share with you one of my favorite fall-back tools for improving my mental state when I’m feeling down in the dumps.

Just getting up, moving around, and cracking a sweat does wonders for me. In the short term, a good workout leaves me feeling relieved, refreshed and awake. In the long term, getting regular exercise has vastly improved both my physical health and my sense of self image. I’m hoping that it can do the same for more than a few of our regular readers.

Hoodie Highlights… Jesse Martin aka FLOOR BABA!

Posted by

Sup y’all? =) Keeping the mental health awareness train rolling here on the blog, I’m back with another guest to talk about the tricky topic on Hoodie Highlights!

As is the custom, today’s guest is another ‘doer’ in and around the chiprealm. If you’ve been tuned in at all these past few years, there’s a good chance you’ve either heard his music (including a couple of ChipWIN subs!) or something he’s had a hand in publishing. Kuma even talked to him here on The CWB back in 2013! (…where in the world has the time gone?). He’s also a member of our newly created mental health support & awareness Facebook group, “It’s Still You”, which you can find more about here.

Everyone welcome to the blog Jesse Martin aka FLOOR BABA of DESKPOP!

Chip Bit Sid Takes On: GOTO80 – ‘80864’

Posted by

These past couple of weeks I’ve been listening to GOTO80’s latest album, ‘80864’, released via ‘DATA AIRLINES’. This was the first release from GOTO80 that I have listened to. Honestly, I never really got into his distorted, glitchy style of music, however with ‘80864’, GOTO80 brought the iconic ‘Roland 808 drum machine’ into the mix, so I thought I definitely should pick this up and give it a listen.
