Heya friends! It’s been a good few months since I’ve published a new interview here on the blog. Suffice it to say, I’ve been more than just a littlebusy in the interim….
Me as a kaomoji these last few months….
That said, I’ve very much missed both talking to awesome folk in and around our communities and sharing those insightful conversations with y’all. That’s why today, I’m hopping back on that interview train!
Presenting a very special guest and friend that’s I’ve been happy to have worked with in the intervening busy months, everyone welcome to the blog Alex Soborov aka Purely Grey of Tracked Records! Enjoy!
ChipWIN Comps Historical Context: Year Five & Beyond…?
Welcome to the final entry in this 5 part series of ChipWIN compilation crazy tales, wild stories, and occasional insights (previous entries here: 1, 2, 3, & 4). If nothing else, it’s felt really good to me to just get a bit more about all this craziness out and about for folk to read. For additional project info, don’t forget about our FAQ and Mission Statement docs as well. The stories in this series are a bit better tho. (^_−)−☆
At any rate, I hope you’ve enjoyed this journey with me. Feel free to dive into the final set of tales (for now!) after the break.
Sooooooo, what was going to be a week-long series of social media posts giving brief historical context on five years of our compilation series (a little hype leading up to Friday’s V.6 launch if you will) just turned into a week-long series of blog posts featuring such. Why? Simple: there’s no word limit here. ಠ‿↼ And boy howdy, can I write a lot about this gorram project; especially this core facet of it.
It’s another year, another excellent selection of 51 tracks, and if you have no idea what I’m talking about then you must be living under the biggest rock. ‘Chiptunes=WIN Volume 5’ is the definitive entry at this point in time. Every track in this compilation was handcrafted almost perfectly for the listening pleasure of the thousands of people who listen to this kind of stuff. And HOLY SHITBALLS LOOK AT THAT ART.
While I’d love to sit here and review every track until my arms bleed, I have other things to do (like listening to Chiptunes=WIN Volume 5). SO, I have been given the task to review the first 10 tracks, and I’ll be doing something a little different for track 9. I’ll let you figure out wh- wait, don’t scroll do- fuck, you really are impatient? Ugh. I guess we’re doing this anyways!
