Aydan Appreciates: ‘Rhythm’n’Bits 2’ by Yoann Turpin

Posted by

As many of you probably know, Yoann Turpin is an artist that I happen to follow quite closely. I’ve always got my eye on him, as he releases high-quality tunes frequently, and he’s often one of the first artists who comes to mind when I’m deciding what album I’d like to review each month. On March 27th, he released ‘Rhythm’n’Bits 2’, a direct sequel to the first album he had written and released nearly seven years prior, and the album is filled with the intricately beautiful compositions I’ve come to know and love from Turpin. I’m elated to have the opportunity to review this piece of work.

You like jazz? I sure do. Jazz music is the foundation for numerous music genres nowadays, including progressive, funk, swing, world fusion, and… chipjazz. Of course, the one that’s likely the most relevant to our community is chipjazz, and what would the genre be without one of its greatest contributors, Yoann Turpin? An extremely prolific and talented artist, Yoann has been featured several times on the blog, and for good reason; his music is beautifully composed, catchy, and impressive in every sense of the word.

Keyboardist, composer, and chipmusician Yoann Turpin has seen a number of his works featured in the ChipWIN community, be it his submission to the ChipWINter compilation, 2014’s ‘FriendChip’, or 2015’s ‘Chip Songbook Vol. 6’. His music is known throughout our niche for its funky vibes, his phenomenal work on the keys, and jazzy, improvisational solos that’re all ingredients for truly gorgeous music. His latest release, ‘Random Smash Hits’, is a collection of three short weeks’ worth of Turpin’s aural artwork. As if the sheer quantity of music he’s released in the last two years wasn’t enough to turn heads, the speed with which this album was composed and mastered is astounding.

So let’s see what chiptune chart-topping pieces lie in wait!

Chris Considers: ‘Chip Songbook Vol. 6’ by Yoann Turpin

The sublime sounds of french keyboardist Yoann Turpin are among the best in all of chipmusic. I first became aware of his work with the release of ‘Rhythm’n’Bits’ via the Ubiktune netlabel, as I’m sure many of you have as well. Its infectious blend of funk and chip quickly landed it as being one of my all-time favorite chiptune albums.  Since that now classic release, Yoann has kindly contributed to the ChipWINter Wonderland album, and has been releasing loads of masterful music on his own at an astonishing rate. Among them has been an ongoing collection of songs called the ‘Chip Songbook’, which is a true gift for any chiptune fan. Let’s take a listen to ‘Chip Songbook Vol. 6’!
