Kuma’s Holiday Gift Giving Guide!

Posted by

Ahoy, ChipWINners! It’s great to see you again during this magical time of year.  You know, the holidays — regardless of whether or not you celebrate them — can be a great time to give to others you care about.  Whether it’s through direct gift giving, a Secret Santa, or a charitable donation, taking the time to help bring some joy to your loved ones is a truly noble act, but it can be trying, as well.  This is especially true for people who are new to the scene or are outside of it and are trying to find the perfect gift for that special lil tracker composer in their lives.  If you are someone who finds themselves in this position, fear not! For I’ll be listing a few things I’ve found throughout my years in the community that are meaningful, essential, and genuinely appreciated by those in it.

Sit back, take some notes, and get ready to figure out what to do with that time I helped you save, because it’s time to stuff some stockings with Kuma!

Santa Kuma’s come to ChipWIN Town! Ho ho ho~

Aydan Interviews: Crunk Witch

Posted by

Hey there, ChipWINners! Chances are you’ve probably heard Crunk Witch from one of their previous releases, most notably 2014’s ‘Heartbeats in Hyperspace’, their most recent album. When they’re not busy working on new material, Hannah and Brandon are known to tour around for a large portion of the year, playing shows all across the country at almost any given time. I had the chance to meet up with them at a show they played in Ithaca, NY, during their recently wrapped nation-wide tour, and asked them if they’d be willing to do an interview for your reading pleasure. They happily obliged! Without further ado, here’s our Chiptunes = WIN EXCLUSIVE interview with Crunk Witch!

Raw Cuts With Kuma #24: My Parents Favorite Music

Posted by

Hey, ChipWINners!  Welcome back to Raw Cuts!  It’s been a while since I’ve done an interview! My last was with the amazing Alex Mauer, and I wanted to do an interview with someone who’s just as fantastic. I am certain I did just that. With more than fifteen years of music production under her belt, this artist is one of the select few who has found success and garnered attention by combining the lyrical gymnastics of hip hop with the high energy instrumentation that vgm and chiptune have to offer.  She has an impressive array of albums in her portfolio, has worked with other big names such as Professor Shyguy and MC Chris on several occasions, and been on a slew of live performances. With all that, it’s very unlikely you haven’t heard of her or her music. Let’s not delay any longer.  Sit back, relax, and join me as I enjoy a lovely conversation with Steffeny Messinger aka My Parents Favorite Music!

Raw Cuts with Kuma #23: Alex Mauer

Posted by

Hey, what’s up everybody!  Welcome back to RCwK!  I’m BronxKuma — Kuma for short — and this time around I managed to get a hold of a bonafide legend!  A founding father of the Philly scene, this guy’s been making tracker music for nearly 20 years and is proof that time, dedication, and hard work doing something you love can pay off in the long run.  Here to talk to us about his journey through chip, some of his more recent and notable projects, and the future, I’m proud to present my interview with one of the very best artists the community has fostered: Alex Mauer!
