This Month in The Overworld: Hyper Foofie

Posted by

This month’s artist is as skillful with words as he is with music. An artist that loves to experiment with different types of artistic expression, and a designer at heart, he often dazzles everyone with his ability to communicate his enthusiasm, verbally and visually. It’s pretty clear from his social media profiles that he takes Chiptune seriously, and it’s very refreshing to see such an unbridled enthusiasm.

His first album was titled ‘Bomb Crusader’ and his friends influence is definately felt on his latest album, named ‘Blaster Raster’, after a lifelong connection that he shared with a rastafari that endured a life threatening motorcycle crash.

Hi guys, how you all doing? First, let me introduce myself! My name is Richard, and I handle the chiptune blog Chip Bit Sid (links and description at the end). Now you may be asking, “What on earth is this dude doing on ChipWIN?” Well, Brandon, being the swell guy he is, has given me this opportunity to blog some of the chiptune reviews I come across through The ChipWIN Blog as well!

Without further ado, let’s begin with ‘Quixotica 2’ by .Mpegasus!

Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 4 [Tracks 41-45]

Greetings and salutations, chippies and chappies. Contrary to what Aydan might have you think, I have no radical skateboard moves to teach you. However, I do have a few, as the kids say, “hella dank” tracks to talk about. Instead of beating around the bush with my standard sesquipedalian loquaciousness, I should actually get to reviewing the tracks, instead of derailing by – oh, wait. Let’s just… try that again.

Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 4 [Tracks 1 – 5]

Welcome to the first of our upcoming track-by-track reviews for the newly-released Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 4! Although the scope and reach of ChipWIN has expanded over the past few years, the annual compilation release remains the central focus of this enterprise: the Wrestlemania to your Royal Rumble, the World Series to your All-Star weekend, or the Metroid Prime to your Other M, as it were. In addition to general exposure for the artists involved and supporting the small but passionate chip music community, this compilation is always exciting to me because I get to hear what some of my favorite artists have been working on, as well as discovering new favorites among familiar names. Make sure to grab your copy from the link above, and let’s get this review started – it’s oppressively hot outside, and this album is about to make the A/C kick into overdrive!

ChipWIN-tern Spotlight: “YUMEMI/LONELY PLANET GIRL” by Slime Girls

Posted by

In a far off place, untouched by worldly woes, there is a place where friends can get together and make sentimental chiptune jams for all to hear and enjoy. The people who hear these songs know that their lives will never be as perfect as the emotions they experience from these magical tunes, but they listen all the same, hoping to experience that moment – no matter how briefly – that they’ll never truly feel in real life. A moment of nostalgia for something that never happened to them, but they wish it had. (more…)
