THE CLOVER AWARDS: 2018

Posted by

The new year is in full swing – MAGFest has come and gone, Chipwrecked is preparing for another great lineup, and we’ve already got a few fun 2019 chiptune releases! But such an active community also makes for a lot you may have missed, and I’d like to give the last year a final sendoff before moving onto this one. I’m proud of the work I did in 2018, but there was a lot I didn’t get to talk about as well. This scene is bursting with music to enjoy and appreciate, so while I can only cover a small portion of it, I’d like to try and spotlight some tunes that deserve the attention.

Naturally, I will be doing this in the silliest way possible.

Speaking of great releases, brought to us by the good folks over at Cheapbeats, Pixeltune’s newest release ‘A Coherent Fix’, is just such a great release, and that’s why we’re taking a look at it today! (And DAMN look at that artwork!)

Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 4 [Track 6 – 10]

Posted by

As I sat down to continue my portion of tracks from Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 4, I found myself rather overwhelmed by the breadth of the task laid before me.  In my small chunk of tracks alone there is to be found: a floating sanctuary, a carnival of children, inner strength, the hippest basement you’ve ever not wanted to go to, and the spirit of the universe.  To quantify the talent of those involved in this compilation as a whole, or even just my small slice of it, would be an impossible task.  Instead of attempting to analyze something that is ultimately beyond my n00b-level knowledge, I’d like to invite you on a journey with me.  Over five tracks, we travel through the many realities created by the artists gracious enough to lend their imaginations to us.
