Sup y’all? =) President Hoodie here, which means it’s probably time for another one of my special “Hoodie Highlights” interviews! That or a new project….
Naaaaaaaaaaaaah! Definitely an interview. I need some off time yo. :3
If you’ve seen anything – and I mean ANYTHING – Chiptunes = WIN since the very first compilation, you’re already indirectly familiar with today’s special guest via his badass handiwork. Yeah, that makes it pretty clear that I’m undoubtedly talking about the graphic artist & animator with THE very mostest, Nate Horsfall aka FoxxDragon! Enjoy!
It’s almost time for the latest edition of MAGFest’s Game Over concert series!!!!!!
(i.e. KICKASS chip & VGM shows). This one, located in Durham, NC, includes a 6 artist roster made up of both well known masters of badassery+ some up & coming talent!! Who exactly?
~BOOYAH, SHOW FLYER~
*INSANELY AWESOME* show poster by Nate Horsfall aka Foxdragon of lightningarts.com. Try to spot all of the references in it. I dare you.
If you’re anywhere even remotely nearby (OR NOT: Chip Mom & I are traveling 12 hours to this from Arkansas!! #OHSNAP), you totes owe it to yourself to make it out to this EPIC CHIP + VGM UBER AMAZEBALLS SHOW!!!!
Original Vol.2 artwork by Nate Horsfall; Pxl-Win revision by Alex Kelly.
Introducing the joint efforts of Pxl-Bot & Chiptunes = WIN, Volume 2’s companion compilation: PXL-WIN!!!
Featuring 15 of the 146 Volume 2 submissions + 2 special guests (17 tracks total), revised album artwork, & mastering from Cincinnati’s S.P.R.Y, this release’ll be another one guaranteed to please your chiploving earholes!
PXL-WIN releases next Saturday, August 17th on the Pxl-Bot Bandcamp after the 7pm EST Nerd Rock Radio listening party on 8bitx.com!
With but a few days left before the July 15th release of Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 2, the final touches are being put in place; Dj CUTMAN is preparing the final masters for upload, Kubbi is locking in the track order, & I’m triple checking everything there is to check thrice over & THEN AGAIN.
In the meantime, HAVE A PROMO VIDEO (full roster listed within):
And how about some KICKASS ALBUM ARTWORK while you’re at it:
Strikingly beautiful album art by Nate Horsfall of lightningarts.com.
And, of course, don’t miss the crazy Vol.2 listening party on 8 Bit Power Hour + Nerd Rock Radio starting at 8pm EST Monday on 8bitx.com (click HERE to go to the Fb event). I expect it to be JUST as ridiculously awesome, awesomely ridiculous as the first one (i.e. VERY much so 8).
Not even gonna waste time describing MAG at this point (YOU SHOULD KNOW BY NOW!!!). What I AM going to mention are THESETHINGS:
1) – I will be livesharing my location regularly via the ChipWIN Twitter Account, Fb Page, and Fb Group. Wanna find me? THEN DO IT. We will hang. We will party. We will ROCK OUT. I will bear hug you. IT WILL BE GLORIOUS. Especially if you catch my set with Lords of Thunder on Friday at noon. THAT WILL BE ESPECIALLY GLORIOUS.
THERE WILL BE AN OFFICIAL/UNOFFICIAL CHIPMUSIC/DJ JAMSPACE AT MAGFEST!!!!! AWWWWWWWWW YEAAAAAAAAAH~ 8)
Thanks to Nikola Whallon, we have the PA needed to make this happen, so HAPPEN IT SHALL!!! =DDD It’ll be happening in the hall outside the Potomac Ballroom (Hallspace?? LOOOL), & similar to the original Jamspace, will have 10 minute sign-up slots (unless no one is playing/waiting in line; in that case KEEP ROCKIN~). Not 100% when it’ll start going on Thursday, and there will be some shut-down during some of the shows, BUT IT’S HAPPENING IN SOME FORM OR FASHION. So bring your music AND DO IT TO IT!!!
That’s it. Nothing else to say. Except BRING DAT ASS. Oh and…
