Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 7 [Tracks 11-20]

Posted by

Hey dudes and dudettes~!

Tuberz here. Rather than rant about theory and rhythms and other malarkey, Brandon thought it would be nice to get me to review some of the stellar new tracks from ‘Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 7’.

I took up the challenge with eager willingness to enjoy some tunage and I must say that I have really been taken by surprise with the sheer quality of some of this music. That’s saying something because I already thought the music would be insanely good. Without further adieu, let’s hear my ranting about other peoples’ application of music theory.

Careful or V.7 art contest winner, TinyNeenja’s, Glitch Dragon will melt more than just your face!

ARE YOU READY FOR MY SCATHING CRITIQUE OF GAMEBOY JAMS AND OTHER SUCH PARAPHERNALIA???

Glenntai Got… ‘Bare Knuckle, a Streets of Rage Megamix’ by Auxcide

Posted by

For those of you from the west coast of the US and those of you familiar with the Philadelphia chiptune scene and/or MAGFest, the name Auxcide is likely a very familiar to you. Armed with several Gameboy Advance SPs, synthesizers and drum machines, his unique blend of electronic music genres within the media of chipmusic have struck deep emotions as much as it has made people dance. During this summer of excellent releases coming from talented composers, Cheapbeats has given us a treat by releasing Bare Knuckle: a 15-minute live-recorded medley full of music from the Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle/ベア・ナックル series. Yuzo Koshiro has been known for his bouncy, syncopated dance rhythms that combined elements from house, jazz, hip-hop and a variety of EDM genres.  Continue after the jump for some good jams.

Turbo Super Post-MAG MAG-Post 2017 & Knuckles Gaiden Day One Edition

Posted by

By the time you read this, everyone should be home and happy, well rested, without the MAGFlu and otherwise readjusted to real life. While I’m WRITING it, however, I’m drowning in posts from people in transit back to the dark corners of the world they crawled from so that they can go heal themselves. While this year’s MAGFest might have been the biggest one so far, it also seems to have taken the most from us in terms of bodily health, but only because everyone was incapable of having any degree of chill. Everyone basically just kept going until they were physically unable to go anymore, and even then they just kinda propped their bodies up in chairs so they could at least look like they were still going like some kind of knock-off ‘Weekend at Bernie’s.’ It was amazing. But enough talk – let’s have at this highlight reel!
