After a long hiatus I’m back with ChipWIN writing about some chiptune music, and what better way than beginning with the fantastic album, ‘Illegal Street Racing’ by MisfitChris? This was initially released towards the end of January as solely a digital album. However, it wasn’t until June 24th, when ‘Data Airlines’ produced the cassette release of ‘Illegal Street Racing’, did it come under my radar.
Polygon Horizon is a chipartist whose name may not be recognized by many. However, on hearing their polished sound, out-of-this-world riffage, and references to the Nintendocore music catalog throughout their Facebook page, it’ll be clear that this is no newbie to the chipmusic genre. Poopmaster (debatably the contender for ‘Silliest Artist Name with Best Music’) went through a transitional period, slightly altered their usual style, and morphed into the chipmetal project that is PH. ‘Synonymous Dimensions’ is this artist’s virgin project under this alias; this is a concept album dealing with the unique idea that five video game characters suddenly become conscious of what’s happening around them and the fact that they are, indeed, nothing more than digitally created objects in a predetermined world. Read on to see what this veteran of the genre has created!
