ChipWIN-tern Spotlight: The ‘xyce vs.’ Series

Posted by

Howdy-ho, chipeople. You know what’s great about chiptune? The fact that someone can have an absolutely silly idea and have it spiral into an overwhelming success. Sometimes that’s just dropping those “sick clabs” with your friends, sometimes it’s doing a cover album or if you’re Tom Offringa and Roel Heerspink, it’s both. Starting last year on Halloween, xyce kicked off what I hope to be a long tradition of albums which I will be henceforth referring to the “xyce vs.” series – last year’s album was ‘xyce vs. backstreet boys’, and this year we got ‘xyce vs. genesis’. Call them cover albums, call them re-imaginings, call them revamps, call them whatever you like as long as you’re calling them awesome.

Well, here’s a chance to do such all over again and this time aided by the creepy writing prowess of four of our blog writers. Starting the frightful journey, it’s R. Morgan Slade!
