ChipWIN-tern Spotlight: “YUMEMI/LONELY PLANET GIRL” by Slime Girls

Posted by

In a far off place, untouched by worldly woes, there is a place where friends can get together and make sentimental chiptune jams for all to hear and enjoy. The people who hear these songs know that their lives will never be as perfect as the emotions they experience from these magical tunes, but they listen all the same, hoping to experience that moment – no matter how briefly – that they’ll never truly feel in real life.

Chris Considers: ‘Chip Songbook Vol. 6’ by Yoann Turpin

Posted by

The sublime sounds of french keyboardist Yoann Turpin are among the best in all of chipmusic. I first became aware of his work with the release of ‘Rhythm’n’Bits’ via the Ubiktune netlabel, as I’m sure many of you have as well. Its infectious blend of funk and chip quickly landed it as being one of my all-time favorite chiptune albums.  Since that now classic release, Yoann has kindly contributed to the ChipWINter Wonderland album, and has been releasing loads of masterful music on his own at an astonishing rate. Among them has been an ongoing collection of songs called the ‘Chip Songbook’, which is a true gift for any chiptune fan. Let’s take a listen to ‘Chip Songbook Vol. 6’!
