This Week in Chiptune

By Chris Davidson

About this podcast   English    United States

This Week in Chiptune is a weekly music show highlighting some of the best new Chiptunes from around the world. The show is hosted and mixed live by Dj CUTMAN.
Sometimes called chipmusic, 8bit, bitpop or lo-fi, chiptune music is sometimes created with old video game hardware, or obsolete technology. Because of the way it is created, Chiptune has a quality and style unlike most other forms of electronic music. Some chiptune musicians use modern music production tools in conjunction with 8-bit synths and hardware to create chiptune music with a modern edge.
Full track-listings and download links for all music played on TWiC are available in the description of each episode, and also on ThisWeekInChiptune.com

For the grand finale of This Week in Chiptune, I selected 200 of my favorite chiptune and chip-inspired tracks from a pool of over 7000; my entire collection of singles, albums and compilations that were sourced to create the series. I've included some historic and groundbreaking tracks from the chiptune scene, some of these songs stretch back almost a decade.

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.    Want to make some chiptunes like these?
