hayhook posted a topic in New & Upcoming ReleasesJust gave this one a full listen-through and holy Toledo is it fantastic! avail in cassette and cd options (and dl) Adventures in ZX Spectrum gaming from the Pingdiscs and MightyForce coders. This album has been created to celebrate the inventions of Sir Clive Sinclair and the impact they had on our youth, including the magical ZX Spectrum that converted us all into gamers and coders. The music contained reflects the colours and sounds of that golden era, not to mention the rubber keys and the C5... https://mightyping.bandcamp.com/album/sinclair
Hi, just listed One-Offs Ep up for pre-order on bandcamp https://lackluster.bandcamp.com/album/one-offs-ep 1. Plip (3:36) 2. Shoo (2:16) 3. 210101 (4:54) 4. Sfacidx3mulch (1:15) 5. Rumk8 (9:49) 6. Kcl2 (3:39) the original press-release from June 2001: "Monotonik is very proud to present an exclusive 6-track EP from Finland’s Lackluster, aka Esa Ruoho, an artist we’ve been releasing (as Distance) since way back when we were putting out .MODs, and have seen go from the limited-edition “CDR#2” on Monotonik (our only physical release ever) to critical acclaim through his 12” and album releases on the UK’s DeFocus Records, and more recent vinyl and CDs put out through Rikos, Merck, and U-Cover, to name but a few. “One-Offs EP” is a collection of material from the last year or so which, quite simply, blows us away. From the starting bloopshuffle into expansive caverns of “Plip”, through the perverse percussives of “Shoo”, and into the suddenly retro, gorgeous simplicity of “21/01/01”, this suddenly feels eons past “Container”, even after its 5-star Muzik rating. Pausing for the breathy interlude of “Sfacidx3mulch”, the EP forges on to the simply epic and extended multilayering of “Rumk8”, as formerly heard in the [email protected] performance, and finally to the wonderful “Kcl2”, all echo-ing organ chords and zen-like calm. What a trip." releases April 10, 2020 p.s. the cover artwork is by Jaakko Iisalo. The originator of Angry Birds designs (the pigs and the birds).

New 8bit(ish) Piece
Guest posted a topic in Your Latest CreationsHey WATMM! This is my attempt at something a little more retro (I guess) sounding, verging on 8bit. Not all of the sounds fall into the category of 8bit, or even 16bit, but I think they create a nice texture with the ones that do. Anyway, as always, I'd love to hear what you think of this little diddy.

"Serious" 8bit and Chiptune Tracks or Remixes
joshuatxuk posted a topic in Music DiscussionBeen digging this kind of angle in regards to chiptune and 8bit music. Makes you hear and further appreciate certain songs. Granted, a few are a bit repetitive, especially ones that take out vocal parts. I tried to avoid anything that sounds like MIDI being lazily run through bitcrushers and/or lame sound banks as best as I could, but I'm no expert on the sound. Anyone else have some good finds? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FH1ccqGIxPQ&feature=related ^btw there are a ton of really good 8bit covers of black metal on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVgWDpmN9TI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXHijjQprOA
