This episode we’re going to focus on hardware based chiptune music, including gameboy songs made with the homebrew rom LSDj, Nintendo-style music made with NES compatible program Famitracker, and FM Synthesis like the Sega Genesis! Fans of old PC games will be pleased to know we’ve got an album created entirely on the Sound Blaster 16, a soundcard for home computers released back in 1992. That’s what we’re going to hear first, by chiptune legend and Oxygen Star who got his start performing live drums at PAX East in Boston.
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.
An epic show of chiptune dance music! New albums from A_Rival and Tiasu, remix albums from Sabrepulse and Glenntai, a new EP from She, and a new track from Monstercat artists Kevin Villecco & Sushi Killer, now known as Hyper Potions!
We’ll hear the new LSDj album from Snesei, game soundtracks from A_Rival, Saskrotch and H33llxz, and more music from James Landino, Mostly Toast, cTrix and The Unicorn Princess.
