"Serious" 8bit and Chiptune Tracks or Remixes

Recommended Posts

Been 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?

^btw there are a ton of really good 8bit covers of black metal on youtube

This is a must have for any fans of 8 bit moosics. http://datathrash.ba...ropping-a-duece

 

No worries, I'm cranking this at work now! Good recommendation. I was kinda vague, I guess I'm just trying to find more serious, dark, or leftfield 8bit/chiptune music, not necessarily covers or remixes but anything that isn't pure happy melodic VG music or gimmicky covers or pop songs.

Not a big 8-bit fan, but one of my good friends makes 8-bit so I've fallen in love with some artists.

 

Goto 80 (Commodore Grooves is a great album)

Binarpilot (Not 8-bit, but 8-bit fans like him, and I do too. His music is free too. Download Defrag).

Paul Slocum (Is very talented with an Atari 2600)

Saskrotch (Nintendo Breakz Vol. 1 is fantastic)

The Faxanadu Soundtrack (So damn catchy)

 

And my friend is "Suffusion of Yellow"
