INCOMING TRANSMISSION


Y’ello there chip-winners!

I’m back again with another review, but this time, it’s gonna be different. I had the pleasure of going to 8Static Fest a few weeks ago (as a performer too!) and I thought what better way to share my experience of the whole event by making a review! And don’t worry, there’s plenty of memes, hence the Philadelphia chiptune scene.

Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 5 [Tracks 11 – 20]

Posted by

Welcome to the second day of reviews for the newly-released Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 5! As a reviewer, this is a really interesting way of breaking down such a large compilation because we essentially have a separate ‘album’ worth of incredibly diverse material to prepare for dissection, while still relating it to Volume 5 as a whole. I have the distinct pleasure of going over tracks 11-20, which contain some of the best melodic, heavy, and just plain weird tunes on the compilation. Here we go!

ChipWIN-tern Spotlight: ‘DESKTAPE’

Posted by

This may come as a rather large shock to you, but here at Chiptunes = WIN, we really like compilations. We really, really like them. And what’s better than listening to a compilation that we put together ourselves? Listening to one that someone else put together! It’s like all the joy of getting a mixtape from your crush without the sweaty palms and the queasy feeling that gets worse the more you try not to think about it (that wasn’t just me, right?). Enter DESKPOP, the new label by FLOOR BABA and Braz_OS. They got all sorts of folks together to drop the last great compo of 2015 – and if you haven’t heard, you’re about to be in for a helluva trip.
