Posted by

[Editor’s note: This is a Russian translation of an original album review penned by ViridianForge found here. Thanks to BleepLove for making this magic happen! ♥]

Октябрь уже за окном и ChipWIN и KRVKT предлагают вам небольшую помощь, чтобы скрасить это самое жуткое время года. Выпущенный нашими хорошими друзьями BleepLove, «Red Ocean» наполнен как энергией, заставляющей сердце биться, так и расслабляющими нервы риффами. И вместе все это приносит уникальное веселье, порожденное ужасом, и волнение от противостояния неизвестному.

Stokin’ the Forge: ‘Red Ocean’ by KRVKT

Posted by

October is upon us ChipWIN, and KRVKT has put together a little something to help welcome the spookiest time of the year. Released by our good friends at BleepLove, ‘Red Ocean‘ is rife both with heart throbbing energy and nerve chilling riffs. Together, these components produce a unique exhilaration borne of the terror and excitement of confronting the unknown. Join me past the fold as I explore just what about KRVKT’s latest release sunk its hooks into me.

The Unicorn Princess Royally Reviews ‘Divergence’ by DjjD

Posted by

This time of year is special; everyone affected by winter’s chill thaws out with the earth once warmer weather hits. Every year at this time, I always try to listen to a new playlist to compliment being able to spend more time outside and enjoying nature. This month’s review is a special new release by DjjD (who was previously part of the ChipWIN staff!) called ‘Divergence’.

This album makes you think, it fills the silence in car rides spent driving through repetitive scenes, and it expands roots by using chip elements complimented with more atmospheric textures. DjjD not only demonstrates his compositional technique, but also showcases solid production chops, the gorgeous voice of Parvarthi Gopinath and live violin played by Jeff Ball. Taking these elements and creating it into one solid project, this album flows cohesively and reminds me of the perfect score for an advertisement.
