Anyone else listen to chiptunes?
Dude yes! I LOVE chiptune! Some of the artists I like are Anamanaguchi, Unicorn Kid, Fighter X, Sabrepulse, Starscream, Saskcrotch and George & Jonathan, and most recently I started listening to the Rymdraft album and am loving it.
I really like the stuff you shared, I hadn't heard some of it before, especially Paper Dolls.
Also www.8bitpeoples.com has a big collection of chiptune music you should check out.
I haven't heard of a couple of those, I'll be sure to check them out!
Oh, one more thing that I want to share here. This tune is from Magician, a fairly unknown NES game which was composed by Neil Baldwin, who has been pretty involved in the chiptune community, in terms of releasing tools to create NES music (I think he released a tool called Nijuu or something along those lines). Anyway, this is probably one of my favorite songs on the NES, really shows the capability of the sound chip.
Edit: His blog is also really informative and interesting.
Another useful site you may or may not have heard of is Crunchy Records Company.
That Magician song is hot, I like it.
I've never heard of Crunchy, I'll be sure to take a look at their catalog.
Edit: lots of artists in here that I have like one song from but couldn't find anything else! Thanks for the link!
@StarFoxA: I bought his 'album' (if you can call it that), i like him a lot. The reason i mentioned 'pure chiptunes' was to let people know that i get that song isn't a 100% typical chiptune track, but it's nice to see people like it. His one other song was used in a 'Neo Geo Song' which can be found here.
Not really chiptune but heavily insipred is the band Slagsmålsklubben (Fight Club in swedish) As a huge chiptune lover they totally blew my mind with their perfect blend with electronica/techno. They also perform their stuff live and does it _very_ well.
They got tons of real records out, check em out.
