For the grand finale of This Week in Chiptune, I selected 200 of my favorite chiptune and chip-inspired tracks from a pool of over 7000; my entire collection of singles, albums and compilations that were sourced to create the series. I’ve included some historic and groundbreaking tracks from the chiptune scene, some of these songs stretch back almost a decade. I’ve also include tracks by musicians and producers who’ve taken the chiptune to new heights. There are also some of my personal favorites and mainstay musicians of TWiC. Thank you so much for the last 5 years and two hundred incredible episodes; a special thank you to all my patrons on Patreon for making it possible.
We hear Chip for Change, a chiptune compilation benefiting the ACLU, and feature some of the winning tracks from the Battle of the Bits Spring VI. We also have a new deep house Zelda remix from GameChops.
This episode we dive into FM Funk by way of Ubiktune, their album trilogy SOUNDSHOCK! First released in 2011, FM Funk MADDNESS was followed up with FM Funk TERROR in 2012. The third installment, FM Funk NIRVANA released just this past week, so this episode will be a mix of all three incredible chiptune albums!
We get a blast from the past from some Chiptuners who were kickin’ it before I was even in the scene! New releases from Coda and Algar, plus we take a look back at the 2013 compilation from MicroCollective, and chiptune EDM by Bitonal Landscape.
Funky and soulful chiptunes coming tonight from Coda’s new game soundtrack “VIDEOBALL,” two new additions to Maxo’s “Level Music” series, and new albums from xyce and Mister Spastic, by way of CheapBeats. Support the show http://patreon.com/djcutman
