Every year, ChipWIN releases a compilation of 51 of the best chipmusic tracks of the year, and every year it continues to impress. In case you haven’t been tuning in over the course of the last week, here on The ChipWIN Blog we also happen to review every track from the compilation. A daunting task indeed, but it’s our way of saying thanks to the many people involved in this continuously expanding project. Shall we?
Hey folks! It’s ya boi rhyphte here with some more great summer tunes to talk about. In the midst of V8 submission prep, a very special member of our community was working hard on his first feature length release with his new label! I meant to put this out sooner (closer to the album release and farther from V8), but moving sucks (Editor-in-chief’s note: 100% AGREED), traveling sucks, and doing both in the same week is a gigantic pain in the ass.
I like Catskull Records because of its position as the nucleus of the Midwestern scene. There’s a lot of action on the coasts but the great interior of the states is certainly nothing to sneeze at. Toasterpastries, aka Jack Danial Young, has officially been inducted into the same cabal as the likes of Immortan and ChronoWolf, and I’m glad to see it because he’s definitely been on the come-up for a hot-ass minute now.
I also want to point out the awesome fucking album art. Jack took a picture of the solar eclipse (you know the one) with a GAMEBOY CAMERA. What a badass power move, am I right? The font chosen is very recognizable to the LSDJ goonsquad, of which I am a card-carrying member.
Normally I’d say it’s a little late in the game to be bringing out a “Game Boy/LSDJ-themed” album (it’s INSERT_YEAR_HERE, after all), but Jack has a strong argument for reminding us what these tiny old computers are really capable of. Not that any of us here at Chiptunes = WIN have ever actually forgotten. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
¡Bienvenidos de vuelta a Intense tech con Defense Mech! En esta ocasión me gustaría discutir algunas de las diferentes formas de utilizar las tables en LSDj. Espero que después de leer esta lección te inspires para usar este recurso de formas nuevas y creativas. ¡Pongamos la mesa para comenzar!
Welcome back to Intense Tech with Defense Mech! In this post I wanted to discuss some different ways to use tables in LSDj. After reading this lesson, I hope you’ll be inspired to use tables in new and inventive ways! Let’s set the table and get started!
When a long day finally comes to an end, there are just a few things we can say are ‘universally pleasant’: taking your shoes off, laying on the bed with your face on the pillow, drinking or eating something, playing some music, or taking a shower to name a few. Thinking on those little pleasures sometimes is the reason we hold ourselves together and keep going through a hard day. This time I want to bring to you a tremendous EP that would be useful in a situation like the one I just described – I’m talking about ‘Sine Sleep Session EP’ by Saitone, released through Future Disorder.
¡Bienvenidos de vuelta a Intense tech con Defense Mech! En esta lección cubriremos el cómo utilizar el LSDj Wave Cruncher, de DOTCNT, para tomar muestras y generar nuestros propios instrumentos personalizados en el sintetizador del canal Wave, ¡mismos que podremos parchar en nuestras canciones y archivos de guardado de LSDj!
