Artículo original de DEFENSE MECHANISM. Traducción al español por Pixel Guy.

¡Bienvenidos de vuelta a Intense tech con Defense Mech! Aunque normalmente escribo sobre técnicas utilizables en el LSDj, he recibido muchas preguntas sobre qué tipo de cartuchos recomiendo. El mercado de los cartuchos flash para Gameboy tiende a cambiar cada cierta cantidad de años, así que espero contribuir con información, ya que se ha vuelto relevante. Hoy cubriré tres tipos de cartuchos flash y cómo puedes utilizarlos si quieres escribir música utilizando el LSDJ y hardware (mi método favorito de trabajo). ¡Profundicemos en ello!

Welcome back to Intense Tech with Defense Mech! Although I usually discuss techniques within LSDj, I get a lot of questions about what kind of cartridges I recommend. The Game Boy flash cartridge market tends to change every few years, so I hope to add more information as it becomes relevant.

Aydan Appreciates & Interviews: nanobii/Linus from the Stars

Posted by

I ‘ve been keeping my eye on nanobii for quite some time ever since I was introduced to the artist on his ‘Love Songs EP‘, which ended up being one of my favorite works from 2017. At times playful and at times heartfelt, the EP was a showcase of a diverse musical style that nanobii continued to develop and refine over the past few years on releases such as ‘Sunshine Express‘ and ‘Children of the Sky‘. His musical aptitude was even further showcased on the announcement of his newer synthpop project, Linus from the Stars, through three phenomenal releases. Most recently, nanobii played a thirty-minute live set for electronic music legend Porter Robinson’s ‘secret sky’ online music festival to much applause from his audience. I received the opportunity to sit down and speak with Linus about his experience playing ‘secret sky’, his music, himself, and even his preferred literature in the most comprehensive interview I’ve ever had the pleasure of conducting. Read on, and enjoy these insights into Linus’ world!
