This Month in The Overworld: Kenobit

Posted by

Is there something like a Chiptune Maestro? This month’s artist, Kenobit, a.k.a Fabio Bortolotti, could definitely be defined as one. Self proclaimed Game Boy addict, he has been working on his masterful and dynamic tracks for over 9 years, and has certainly become an integral figure of the chipmusic community in Milan, Italy.

Aydan Appreciates: ‘BETTER THAN REALITY’ by LukHash

Posted by

Two and a half years ago, I had the honor of reviewing an album that heavily altered my perception of chipmusic. That album was ‘GLITCH’ by LukHash, and its smooth fusion of genres blew me away; so much so that it became a permanent addition to my playlists. While I missed reviewing the musical artisan’s October 2018 release, ‘GHOSTS’, he’s quickly come out with yet another mindblowing, genre-defying release with ‘BETTER THAN REALITY’. Plug in your headphones and prepare yourself…this is one hell of a ride.

Aydan Appreciates: ‘Kintsugi’ by Calavera

Posted by

A lot of the chipscene is based in either the Americas, Europe, or Asia. So many talented artists come from these four continents that we often forget about good ol’ Australia. With the recent influx of interest in Square Sounds Melbourne 2018, and a steady flow of music coming from Australian chipmusicians over the last few years, now seems like the perfect time to review one of the most recent works to come out of the region. Calavera is known for his down-tempo bass-filled bangers of tracks, and his most recent work, ‘Kintsugi’, certainly delivers them. We’ll be looking at three tracks from this album in-depth, so buckle up for one hell of a ride.

Sladerfluous Reviews: ‘Adventures in Bitscape’ by Batou

‘Adventures in Bitscape’ by Batou fills the vacuum of space with a passionate, thought-provoking soundscape that you absolutely need to stabilize into your own orbit.

Chill, delightful, and contemplative, ‘Adventures in Bitscape’ is a focused concept album featuring 6 cohesive tracks delivering a musical jaunt through the far reaches of space and beyond. Batou focuses on a sparse, precise collection of sounds to augment an ever-present effective use of silence and the space between notes in an evolving experience that absolutely delivers on its promise to send you off on a contemplative journey through the empty reaches of space and beyond with grace and chip-style.
