Focusing on Chiptune rock bands, and chip-musicians who use the band format of guitars/bass/drums/vocals to make new and interesting chiptune music!
Post-Guch, a term I affectionately use to describe chiptune music in a pop-punk format. It’s a style pioneered by the group Anamanaguchi, and tonight’s tunes are from Slime Girls and Melt Channel. We will also hear tracks of J-NERATION 3, a Japanese happy hardcore EDM compilation, along with tracks from Smooth McGroove Remixed (GameChops) and the new EP from Dream Eater (Pterodactyl Squad)
Tonight we hear an incredible album from MmcM made with the ZX Spectrum, a home computer released in the UK in the 80’s. He’s been producing chipmusic in Russia for over a decade, and this is first release with Chip-label Ubiktune. We also hear the new EP from Mykah, Chiba City Blues, inspired by the sights and sounds of Chiba Prefecture in Tokyo, Japan. Singles from DJ Super Sonic, Electric Children, Graz, Russellian, and Wizars.
It’s the 100th Episode of This Week in Chiptune! To celebrate, I played a three hour set of my favorite chiptune dance music (the third hour got kind of laid back and chill!) Thank you to all my listeners and patrons for help us get to 100 episodes! Here’s to many more :D
Huge show tonight! New chiptunes from Virt, Danimal Cannon, Trey Frey, Shirobon, Inverse Phase, Bulby and more! New albums from Slime Girls, Shy Guys and Hypnogram, labels include Shelf___ Label, DESKPOP, and Data Airlines. We’ll even hear a Donkey Kong Country remix from Marshall Art.
