Stoking the Forge: ‘FOLIAGE EP’ by scatterpattern

Posted by

March has roared in like a lion, noble ChipWINNERs, and the time has come again to open the Forge to one and all.  I’m glad to have you back again for this month’s instalment because I’ve stumbled across an up and comer named scatterpattern, and his debut LSDJ EP, ‘FOLIAGE’ has gotten me quite fired me up.

A farm boy from the rugged wilds of Canada’s Manitoba, scatterpattern didn’t own his first Gameboy until 2013, but by no means is he a stranger to music.  Considering himself a bassist at heart, he got his start playing in metal bands before starting the techno-8bit noise band Gamma Dragons with his friend and consistent musical cohort, Tspeiro.  Once he acquired his first gameboy and an LSDJ cart, that obsession familiar to many readers of this blog took a firm root in his brain stem.

Chip Mom’s Kitchen #10: Scotcheroos

Posted by

Today being St. Paddy’s Day, I figure most of you have probably already been partaking in a bit of the drink.  The following recipe takes that into account: it does not require you to turn on your oven, there is very little chance of burning yourself, and the word “scotch” is in the title.  Behold the delicious wonder that is:

Scotcheroos

Difficulty level:
Newb          |         Apprentice         |         Journeyman         |         Master

Quest Items:

6 cups rice crispies
6 oz chocolate chips
6 oz butterscotch chips
1 cup sugar
1 cup honey
1 cup peanut butter
9 x 13 pan
nonstick spray
spatula

Over medium heat, combine sugar and honey and bring to a boil.

NOTE: Most recipes for Scotcheroos call for white corn syrup.  Do not eat this crap, do not use it, please please please please.  For one, it’s corn syrup.  PURE CORN SYRUP.  Ick.  Secondly, it makes the Scotcheroos hard as a rock.  I prefer honey or agave as sweeteners.  I chose honey for this recipe because it’s thicker like corn syrup and adds great flavor.

Coat your measuring cup with non-stick spray and then smear peanut butter into it. When it is full, you have a well measured cup of pb that won’t stick to the cup.  Pour the cup of peanut butter into your sugary mixture on the stove and stir until it all melts together.

 

 

 

 

Pour the melty mixture into a large bowl filled with six cups of rice cripsies.  Now your job is to mix a lot until the peanut butter evenly coats all of the cereal.

Press the coated crispies into a 9 x 13 pan that has been non-stick sprayed. Get them in there firmly and evenly.  This is your vessel for chocolate, and that makes them important.

Measure out six oz each of chocolate and butterscotch chips into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring in between.  You may not see much happening at first, and that’s OK.  Microwaving for longer than 30 seconds at a time and you risk scorching the chocolate.  Once you see melting happening, shorten to 10 second intervals.  Melt and stir until the mixture is smooth.

Pour the melted chocolate over the top of your crispies and smooth with a spatula.  Once you have the chocolate evenly spread, give the pan a little bit of a shake.  It settles the chocolate and makes it look super smooth!

 

 

 

 

Once the chocolate is cool and has set, you can release your inner maniac and get to work with your knife.  I cut my Scotcheroos into 36 pieces (nine by four), which may seem a little small, but these are quite rich.

All done! To truely get into the St. Paddy’s spirit, I recommend alternating between one Scotcheroo and one shot Bailey’s Irish Creme (under 21 with parental permission only).

#realtalk: I love all my chipkids, so no matter how old you are, be safe today.  Pick a DD, grab a cab, walk, or call a friend.  I can’t think of a single person who wouldn’t rather get woken up at 2 am by a friend looking for a ride than someone saying “There’s been a terrible accident.”

 

With that in mind, I’m off to go hunt down some Irish Car Bombs.

Prying Questions with Danny Pryor – Level 1 SUB-BOSS: ‘BRKOUT EP’ by Brick BRKer

Posted by

Whew!  Well that was a pretty easy start to Level 1!  Up until this point, we only had a few enemies that we had to come across, (think Goombas and Koopa Shells) but FINALLY we are greeted by the flashing lights and sirens that can only mean a new challenger is waiting for us in…The Chip Arena!

new challenger

YES!! YES!! Brick BRKer has unveiled his super side-scrolling sub-boss ‘BRKout‘ upon the land, and it is very, very good. This thing has four BRAND NEW FORMS thrown into the mix, so you really feel like you get the most out of this downloadable content. With that said, time to start the walkthrough!

‘Anti-Chiptune Chiptune’ Compilation via The Waveform Generator

Posted by

Sup y’all? Prez Hoodie here. And Viridian Forge. And Chris Krogsgard. And FirstLadyRyn. Yup, that’s right: all four of us are tag-teaming this 19 artist/track review of The Waveform Generator’s wonderfully quirky debut compilation ‘Anti-Chiptune Chiptune‘ (ACC for short). Teamwork, BOOYAH!

And on that note, time for me to get things rollin’ with a review of the first five jams.
Here goes!

1. ‘Synergy’ by Kubbi

Ever the master of the immersive chiptune soundscape, Kubbi kicks this compilation off with an epic ferocity. ‘Synergy’ brings something a bit stylistically different than his “usual” however — a bit more frenetic & minimalist, particularly at the start. It harkens back to earlier Kubbi-tunes, yet manifests his current more experienced compositional chops throughout. Very complete, emotive, beautiful; in a word, Kubbi.

2. ‘King’ by Vegas Diamond

‘King’ is yet another fine example of Vegas Diamond’s signature hard driven, experimental hip hop styled chiptune. Even for him, however, this dark track goes damn hard; potentially moreso than even anything on his sophomore EP ‘Hyper‘. Punishing rhythms + grimy basswork + gritty layers of melodic leads = maximum #SWAG. Or at least I think that’s what the kids would call it as they headbanged while twerking (jk no one do that, please…).

3. ‘Polar’ by Nappes

Completely changing the pace, Nappes’ ‘Polar’ comes in with a nice downtempo vibe. But not too “nice”; it’s an altogether haunting track, especially as the unsettling, somewhat dissonant melody interweaves its way in and out. It leaves me feeling quite unsettled, and I really, really dig it. The lush, pulsating textures and sense of depth & space in this song are very appealing. On a side note, this is the musical alias of of Pxl-Bot & Weekly Treats‘ Alex Kelly, of whom I didn’t even know made music until this point, hot damn! (moar music pls alex kthxbai).

4. ‘Superball’ by Alex Mauer

This very aptly titled jam with its delightfully whimsical sound design from notable chiptune & demoscene composer, Alex Mauer, is quite jarring on the heels of the previous more ethereal piece. And it’s on that note that I start to really feel the “anti-chiptune chiptune” quirk of this compilation kick in. As soon as you think you’re settling in with Kubbi, Vegas Diamond, & Nappes, you get hit smack in the face with a handful of musical bouncy balls. Gotta love it.

5. ‘alcaline pizza [remix]’ by Gab Pearson

Gab’s contribution to ‘ACC’ is an absolutely fantastic remix of his previously released ‘alcaline pizza’ (original can be found on the ‘Pxl-Win’ compilation). The significant tempo change and altered instrument selection gives it a completely different feel from the original; definitely more of a jazz & swing feel to it. There’s a fair deal more gravity to this remix as well. While I enjoyed the original, I thoroughly love this rearrangement. It’s easily one of my favorite tracks on this compilation.

Up to review the next five tracks is Viridian Forge! Go for it, bud!

6. ‘death trebuchet’ by sandneil

Tempo, volume, pitch, feel, varying any of these is fair game during this two-minute foray into the experimental. The big surprise? It is good. To the chagrin of stereotypes everywhere, dissonant instruments, plus slightly creepy backmasked voices, and random explosions of noise have been combined into an enjoyable musical experience. Someone ought to give sandneil a medal.

7. ‘farming hand’ by wailord

The dissonance doesn’t stop there though, as wailord hovers at the threshold of hearing, whispering a distressing melody in the ear. Multiple tempo changes only serve to heighten the alarm. With environmentals like this, just where is this farming hand? On the outskirts of Lavender Town?

8. ‘NEVER LOG OUT///////NEVER SURRENDER’ by AndaruGO

Recent adventures have proven that Andrew Gould will never quit in the pursuit of chiptasticness. This track is an auditory embodiment of that attitude. A hard, mind-focusing grunge noise dominates the track, but the melody can never be fully swallowed by it. Its energy is always there with a clear message: No matter the odds you face down, No matter the opposition in your path, Never give up, Never surrender.

9. ‘jan{  {  {{  { 3’ by Fauxhound

With his entry to the compilation, New Zealand native Jos van Beek’s is retiring his alias, Fauxhound. This track is fitting capstone to the identity’s run. Solid compositional skill takes otherwise repetitive noise samples and turns them into a toe-tapping track demanding some chill danceage.

10. ‘NES CPU Jam Special Vol, Side A (Take 1)’ by DJ NORTON ANTIVIRUS

Standing head, shoulder, knees and toes above their namesake, DJ NORTON ANTIVIRUS’ showing on the compilation is nothing short of jaw dropping. This piece of semi-experimental excellence is, in a nutshell, the product of arcade wizardry. Using an unspecified recording device, NES emulator, HEX editor, and that sheer insanity required to play around in the HEX editor in real time, this track is a shining example of good art from good hacking.

And now I pass the ball onto Chris Krogsgard! Take it away, good sir!

11. ‘LIPPSTIKK’ by KOOL SKULL

The multi-talented artist KOOLSKULL contributes an excellent glitch house track to the compilation. An ominous lead works in tandem with some severely glitched-out bass to create a track as dark as it is danceable. Remarkable mixing/mastering is at work here as well which brings different elements to the forefront at wisely chosen times. I like to imagine that ‘LIPPSTIKK’ is what the nurses from Silent Hill groove to in the club after-hours, and you can’t take that away from me.

12. ‘miamiflush’ by spaceaser

Always-experimental spaceaser serves up ‘miamiflush’, containing a delightful little earworm of a melody that asks the question: “Why not glide?” While it’s a brief track that gets its job done quickly, it sticks with you and remains as one of my favorites of this compilation’s many wondrous oddities.

13. ‘Rattata’s Moment’ by Love Through Cannibalism

Chipbreak master Love Through Cannibalism offers up ‘Rattata’s Moment’, a challenging track that emphasizes the percussiveness of the lead repeating note over its own wickedly intricate breakbeats. This seemingly unintuitive approach to song composition is what makes it a perfect addition to the ‘Anti-Chiptune Chiptune’ compilation. Give it a few listens, and your “WTF did I just hear?” will quickly change to “I see what he did there.”

14. ‘OKdumpster.com’ by HunterQuinn

There are no two ways about it, ‘OKDumpster’ is an absolute showstopper. In it, HunterQuinn dispenses with all the frilly 8-bit woo-woo elements of chipmusic and cuts straight to the good stuff. Grungy, gutteral bass and powerful builds combine with the rolling sting of the noise channel and a multitude of additional glitches and samples to create a rousing ACC. The white hot energy of this track is most effectively paired with imagery of galaxies being created and destroyed.

15. ‘You Gotta Go’ by Guardia

Coming off the heels of such an intense track, we are deftly caught by the graceful tones and pillowy percussion of Guardia’s ‘You Gotta Go’. Guardia is no stranger to TWG. Having released his impeccable experimental album ‘Imprints‘ with them, his reputation precedes him here. Guardia further displays his skills and crafts a cool, dreamy, melodic landscape. Equally soothing and eclectic, the track provides a delightful and warm respite to the listener before the compilation’s further twists and turns.

Last, but certainly not least, in comes FirstLadyRyn to review the final four tracks!

16. ‘golden’ by MrWimmer

There is something wonderfully off-putting about this track.  The feel is somewhat like that of a topsy-turvy circus.  The place is well beyond its hayday, the banners are tattered, and the good performers have moved on to bigger and better things.  Left behind is the lonely circus clown, desperate to entertain the few circus-goers, but the unsettling, layered textures of his song only succeed in convincing the young children that, ‘No, Mommy, I don’t want to go hug the clown’.

17. ”v’;;)_–==T’ by ilkae & meek

Continuing the ambiance of the previous track, ilkae & meek create an intricately layered piece with this entry.  Clocking in at over 10 minutes, this song borders on the repetitive. However, by varying the samples and tempo, the track’s experimentation makes it worth the time spent listening all the way to completion.

18. ‘numb’ by aaceeprss

‘numb’ is aptly named.  The drone of the static is eerily similar to the background noise recorded in the emptiness of the universe. As your mind grapples with the vastness of that void it would be easy to let it disconnect, to unplug for fear of being overwhelmed. If you’re not careful you could become numb. Don’t let yourself wander too far, though, because then you’ll miss out on the subtle melody hidden in the deep beyond.

19. ‘Activation Theme [Bit Shifter Cover]’ by +LET’S DISINFECT!+

Without +LET’S DISINFECT!+’s punk rock aesthetic, this classic from Bit Shifter would have been just too damn happy for this comp.  But its not too happy!  Up tempo? Yes. But, it’s up tempo the way that your local Irish Pub is after a rowdy soccer game.  It’s just flipping perfect.  Somewhere between the gritty cymbal crashes and the plucky acoustic guitar, this track just screams, ‘F*ck this, lets go get a pint’.  A perfect closing to the album, Mr. Monistat gleefully rounds us all up to dive into our favorite beer hole and celebrate the brilliant project that he and the rest of these artists brought together.

Raw Cuts with Kuma #20: Chema64 & Atoms or Faeries (of 56KBPS Records)

Posted by

Welcome back to Raw Cuts, ChipWINners!  First and foremost, I’d like to take the time to thank you all for stickin with me over the past few months!  This is my 20th edition of RCwK and to help celebrate this special occasion, I decided to do something special and interview not one, but two very awesome artists who not only run an incredible netlabel, but have recently put out a stellar compilation that’s a celebration for them as well!

5 years ago, Chema64 founded 56KBPS, Mexico’s premier chiptune netlabel!  While his start off was small, with only a handful of artists contributing at first, Chema64 would soon be joined by another awesome artist by the name of Atoms or Faeries!  Working together, they not only put out albums that do the chipscene in their neck of the world justice, but they would go on to found and curate a chiptune music festival called Format.DF: a 3 day event that would go on to be the Blipfest of Latin America!

To celebrate, commemorate and immortalize the beauty of that festival and achievements thus far, the guys put out a bombastic 30 track compilation that manages to set itself apart from other chiptune/lofi comps over the past 2 years by being dynamic, diverse, culturally flavorful and easily accessible!  From the grimey sounds of Crab Sound’s “Nooby Clairvoyence” to the intermittent wubs of Coleco Music’s “Irak Undo” to the trance/house korg inspired goodness of Anwar Sanchez’s “What’s I O”, there is literally something on this album for everyone.  In short, this is one of the few times where an album so lovingly captures lightning in a bottle that the sum of the parts is truly equal to the whole.

But don’t take my word for it; sit back and relax with it as I take the time to talk to Chema64 and Atoms or Faeries about their music, the scene, the album and what comes next for them.


Kuma:  So lets get started at the beginning.  How’d you guys first get started in chiptune and how did you two meet each other?

Atoms or Faeries (AoF):  Would you like to go first Chema?

Chema64:  I accidentally came across chipmusic in 2005, I don’t even remember how, but the first chiptune I heard was by Tugboat. I made my first tunes by 2007 and in 2009 I founded 56KBPS Records, because there were no Spanish-speaking presence at the time.  I met Marco (Aof) in 2013.  He’s only been part of the net label since 2014 but so far he has been a invaluable piece to the label.

Kuma:  I think that’s the most brief history of someone’s background in chiptune I’ve ever heard. XD Well done, Chema! What about you, Marco?

AoF:  I’ve always loved videogame music.  I used to listen to it every day and sometimes I just played a game because of its tunes.  I studied Music Production and while I was doing so some of my electronic music teachers told me the music I made sounded like something out of a retro videogame XD  I started making bitpop in 2010 under the name Atoms Or Faeries.  I released my first EP on May 2013 and I came across Colectivo Chipotle.  I contacted them and met Chema in person during the FORMAT DF.  We got along really well and sometime later a curator position was available at his label. I jumped at the oportunity and here we are today.

Kuma:  Now correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Format DF that shindig Virt performed at down in Mexico?  If so, I’m glad it was you guys who organized it, because if this album is any indication, you guys must have kicked ass live!

Chema:  No, those were different guys, we brought Danimal Cannon, IAYD and MENEO to a 3 day free music festival, Format.DF. It’s the biggest event of its kind in Latin America so far.

AoF:  It was great bro!  We played at an abandoned chapel that belonged to the Spanish Inquisition.  And it was sooo cool!  I wish you were there!

Chema:  The ambiance was magical, all brotherly love and all!

Kuma:  Oh man that still sounds awesome! like a South American Blipfestival or 8static Fest!  I’m so glad the chip love is spreading and that you’re making it happen!  Are there any plans to include more overseas artists in the future to the event or for you guys to travel into the US and play up north in NYC or Philly?

Chema:  I’m going to do some visuals next week in SXSW, thanks to IAYD.  It’s going to be my first show outside of my home country!

AoF:  Regarding this year’s FORMAT we’d love to invite international musicians again, of course!  We’re still in the early stages of planning, though.

Chema:  And talking about bringing people, we are making slow but steady progress for this year’s Format.DF. We already selected some musicians from South America and United States.  Last year we wanted to bring someone from Japan but it didnt happen

Kuma:  Do you have plans on inviting some of the artists on this compilation?  Cause I have to say, a lot of the people on it I’ve not heard of and I feel bad for saying that cause this albums really legit!  And if so, are there any in particular you liked working with that contributed to the label that you’d like to see have more exposure?

Chema:  Yes, I guess the Chilean artists have a record of exporting excellent music.
They are very professional and from what I know, they need more exposure.  Talking about mexican artists, we get some top quality acts, starting with Crab Sound, such a young artist, but one of the best.

AoF:  Most of the people who participated in the album will play on this year’s festival.  I can’t say I enjoyed working with any one person in particular.  Everyone was great in their own way and though there are people who are way more developed than others I enjoyed working with them all.  A chip labor of love!

Kuma:  I’m glad to hear there’s as much love where you guys are as there is where I am, and I’m glad to hear that love is starting to become more interconnected and international. Going back a bit to interconnect that idea, how did you get your gig to do visuals for SXSW, Chema?  And how long have you been doing visuals for?  Is it something you took up after getting involved musically or something you always did beforehand?

Chema:  I started doing visuals in 2011 because the chiptune shows require it.  Being a graphic designer really helps in this department.  I absolutely love doing them, it`s like a natural extension of the music and the way I do it is really like playing a live instrument. IAYD was kind enough to invite us to his hometown, and what better time than during SXSW.  He also got me the gig, I’m so exited to see Danimal, IAYD again and get to know the Tx Chiptune scene.

AoF:  IAYD is such a great guy!  He’s very talented and friendly and he parties like there’s no tomorrow!  It was difficult to keep up with his partying levels I’ll tell you that XD

Kuma:  TxChip is pretty legit.  From Kloudygirl to Star Fighter Dreams and CHICKENANDROFLS!, plus all the videogame music guys like Amanda Lepre and the Descendants of Erdrick crew.  They’re all wonderful.  And yes, they all party hard, especially IAYD.  That being said, as a curator for the Format.DF festival, are there any artists you’d really like to have perform with you guys, Marco?

AoF:  Yes. I have a list that’s longer than Santa’s.  I especially love bitpop, so Fantomenk, Dunderpatrullen and Bossfight are high on the list.  I really love Omodaka‘s work as well, the way he combines traditional japanese folk music with electronica and chiptune is so original and fantastic!  I like to include hints of Mexican folk music on my music so I feel really connected to Omodaka in that sense.

Chema:  Yeah I was thinking exactly that, Marco.  Also in the graphic department the “Mexican style” is pretty evident.  It’s not about nationalistic feelings, but about the style, that you don’t see very often in chiptune/demoscene.

Kuma:  Those are some big names, and of those, I’ve only seen Omodaka, but I can def say he alone is worth the cost of a ticket if you guys can get him to come to play for you. That hint of the traditional was something I did notice in your music on your Soundcloud page, AoF, and I thought it was pretty cool to hear something with a somewhat traditional flavor in chip.  Conversely, I gushed over how typically chip Chema’s Shatterhand remix was, so I’m glad I got hear a bit of both from you guys.  That being said, was diversity something you were def going for when you put the compilation together, or did you have other feelings/thoughts in mind when you put it together?

Chema:  I knew from the start, with this many artists, it was going to be a mess in form and style. The only criteria for this albums was: “Let’s invite our friends that make the most awesome music in the area”.  I guess quality was the definitive criteria.  I can finally be confident that the scene in this part of the world really matured in the last couple of years

AoF:  Thanks Adam!  And yeah, the music from our friends is so diverse there was no way we could’ve limited it in form or style if we wanted to remain true to what FORMAT was about. Yep, I concur with Chema.  Quality was the main criteria in this case.

Kuma:  It def shows.  Every song on the album is a lot of fun to listen to, and even some of the songs that are in styles I generally don’t listen to are still rather enjoyable. The whole compilation is just dynamic and it’s something I love and want to hear more of in the future from every net label that puts out collections like this.  That being said, once again, I’d like to thank you guys for your time.  Is there anything you two would like to say in closing before we wrap this up?

AoF:  I personally enjoyed working on this compilation very much.  It was great to experience such diversity and growth from our friends at the scene.

Chema:  I would say we still have a long road ahead of us and that this is only the beginning.  I also wanna thank you and Brandon for the interview!  It means a lot!

AoF:  Thanks so much for having us Adam!  It really means a lot to us.  We’ve been struggling to get a footing on the international scene and I feel like we’re finally making it happen!  Chip love for everyone!  Also, have you heard the phrase “Chido-Chip”, Adam?

Kuma:
  No, I can’t say I have.

AoF:  Chido is a slang word that is very similar to “cool”.  So Chido-Chip means something like Cool Chip and it carries all the energy and enthusiasm we feel for chipmusic.  I feel it represents really well the feeling and state of the Mexican scene.

Kuma:  Nice man!  Chido…I’ma have to remember that.  I’ll def spread the Chido-Chip love and vibes here, man!  Thanks again to you both for the interview!
——————————————————————————————————————–

Thanks for tuning and keeping up with us on the blog, and especially for sticking with my derpy butt for 20 issues of Raw Cuts!  It’s been a truly fantastic ride and i can’t wait for what the future brings!  That being said, don’t forget to check out 56KBPS as well as Chema64 and Atoms or Faeries individual work!  And if you’re at SXSW, check out the chiptune and vgm showcases this week for a chance to meet Chema as well as some of the other awesome artists from across the world who are performing there!  ‘Til next time!
