Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 7 [Tracks 41-51]

Posted by

THIS IS IT. We’ve come up to the last ten tracks of Volume 7, and I can’t begin to express the rollercoaster of emotion that was experiencing this album without being able to share the hype with everyone in our Discord channel during the release party.

Fortunately, I have a platform where I can have opinions regardless of how right or wrong I can be (thanks, Internet! <3), so without further ado, it’s time to jump into the first track on my list to cover!

Glenntai Got: Business Pastel

Posted by

2018 has been a good start for chipmusic, and we can easily thank those who released music in the prior year for that. 2017 had some very high-key releases that managed to overshadow many others due to their surge in popularity and the quality of their music being nothing short of top-notch. As a community this is a great “problem” to have, but from an individual artist perspective it can be very tough for new or less-popular acts. If you haven’t listened to it yet, you might accidentally have slept on Business Pastel’s self-titled debut album, which deserves the attention of anyone in chipmusic that enjoys dance music with vibes of electro, future bass, d&b and hints or suggestions of other genres.

Glenntai Got: ‘Confessions’ by Windfallen

Posted by

When most people uninitiated to the world of chiptune hear of the concept, one of the things I’ve commonly heard were about its perception of being upbeat, faster-paced, or joyous in nature. I’m sure there are endless examples of popularized chipmusic that fit this description (such as Anamanaguchi’s album “Endless Fantasy”.) A great example that goes against this perception would be Windfallen’s latest release, “Confessions”. This EP sounds more like a journey through one’s regrets and the tensions built from around it. After the jump, you’ll see why this album should go into your collection for when you need that change of pace.

Sladerfluous Reviews: ‘Autre’ by xyce

‘Autre’ by xyce is one of those “YOU GOT CHOCOLATE IN MY PEANUT BUTTER” moments if the peanut butter was a grassy meadow of adorable frolicking chip-bunnies and the chocolate was a giant head-bangin’ bridge troll shoulder-checking said bunnies into a mosh-pit style frenzy.
