‘Atlas’ by FM-84 is too spectacular to ignore.

This is one of those moments where we at Chiptunes = WIN felt compelled to break open our scope to bring an album to the forefront that orbits our main focusing sub-genre because when you hear this incredible collection by Col Bennett (featuring several MIND BLOWING collaborations), you’ll be thankful that we made the exception and brought FM-84’s masterful dreamwave artistry to your attention.

Start your ‘Atlas’ journey with ‘Arcade Summer’, a delightful ambient introduction into FM-84’s 80’s synth dreamwave stylings, but be warned that this is only the tip of one magnificent iceberg…

This pop-punk chiptune album released by Play It Loud is boisterous, exuberant, and will hook you immediately with send-off tracks that ooze feel-good dance beats like ‘Sophomore Year’:

Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 4 [Tracks 16 – 20]

Posted by

Describing the next five tracks from our 4th compilation album is a lot like plucking five roses from a stunning bouquet, or stacking five bacon pancakes onto your plate from a pile fresh off the griddle: you can’t go wrong, and they taste even better with syrup. (Chiptunes = WIN does not endorse the practice of eating syrup-coated roses. Chiptunes = WIN does, however, heavily endorse bacon pancakes.)

Volume 4 is a gathering of the best from all corners of the community. There are only beacons of chiptune mastery here, and though your personal tastes may steer you toward some songs over others, each track is a curated experience, and all come highly recommended.

Without further ado, I am honoured to bring you Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 4’s tracks 16 through 20. Come listen!
