>>51147270 Because, like pop music, it's music that doesn't require attraction. It's just there. It's an extension of video game music, which was always present their entire childhood, meaning that it requires no effort to discover. It's populated by the lazy and culturally devoid.
anyway, i'm actually a sucker for things that use either brief, unexpected pieces of chip-like sound (flylo does this a lot) or use heavy distortion on chiptune style synths (like vanishes), just not "straight" chiptune, no matter how virtuoso or complicated or whatever.
>>51147533 well, heads up, because faux-ps1 OST vaporwave is probably going to be the new chiptune for the next 10 years
For me chiptunes are not vidya music or nostalgia, just a different kind of "synth" that if you had spent time with games in your youth, they are more familiar to you than others, so you "understand" the sound better.
Also what do you think about the demoscene tracker music? Pick related, one of my favorite albums: http://bleepstreet.bandcamp.com/album/a-for-amiga
What about chiptunes+real instruments, I'm not talking about anamanaguchi, but more like this: http://thejarthurkeenesband.bandcamp.com/album/mighty-social-lion
And finally, check out ubiktune's releases: http://c-jeff.com/album/preschtale
Saving this thread. Chip music is one in the handful of genres that I feel doesn't get enough love. There's an amazing amount of good stuff out there if you just look for it. Same goes for any other genre, really. It makes me sad when I see people equate chip = vgm and claim only neckbeards and manchildren listen to it out of nostalgia.
>>51147726 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4cM5eD9F2E&index=1undefined I really wasn't expecting this at all, but I always thought anamanaguchi would be the first to get their shit in some advertising commercial. I might actually like it more if the lyrics weren't so shit. however. Why couldn't they just keep making shit like Power Supply? Flora Fauna was a damn good jam.
>>51147131 Got a link for that anywhere? I'd be extremely grateful.
>>51147677 I liked it, m8. Also, >I did you not finish your thoughts on it?
>>51147063 Some of my personal favorites: http://brotherandroid.com/album/in-death-a-dream-of-color Pretty much his entire discography is great. He also has a folk project which is pretty nice too.
http://freemusicarchive.org/music/The_J_Arthur_Keenes_Band/Pamplemousse/ A rad mix of chip/pop. The vocals and guitar/synths mix really well with whatever chip setup they have. Check out Computer Savvy if you want more.
http://an0va.bandcamp.com/album/ego-depletion A really solid album done mostly with LSDJ and two DMGs. The Id Suite also has some cool experimental shit if you're willing to drop a few bucks.
http://www.8bitpeoples.com/discography/8BP033 Makes me feel nostalgic for some reason. Good for getting maximum comfy/chilling. Ruby cactus is best cactus.
http://pierre.slinckx.net/dances/ Each dance has a different style to it.Bretty gud.
>>51148121 >http://bleepstreet.bandcamp.com/album/a-for-amiga Damn nigga, that's fresh. >What about chiptunes+real instruments Check out Pastoral I mang. The acoustics come in a bit late for my taste, but it builds up nicely. Kplecraft also has really interesting instrumentation. They do a bit of goa and other arrangements. A search should bring you right to their site. There might be free downloads on Mulit-Boxer and L 012. I know you can get it on 8bitpeoples as well. Realm of Mind has a good chip/jazz/metal feel to it. They're pretty good overall.
>>51150068 >tfw paying more than $5 for a digital download I just can't do it. I have some nice physical copies of chip stuff that I was glad to drop money on though.
>>51149995 >On the topic of chiptune, anybody know any good chiptune backing w/rap over it? I really don't think good chip/rap exists. I've tried looking but came up empty many times.
>>51149745 >Their live sets are hypnotizing. I bet. I really need to try to go to some gigs sometime. I don't want to miss out on these cool performances for forever. There's not much of a chipscene where I live though.
>>51149319 Haven't listened to it. What's the album/artist?
>>51150578 Alma, Michigan, man. There's a few things sprinkled all around the state, but they're usually in Lansing/Grand Rapids/Detroit. Quite a drive, sadly. When I finally get competent with LSDJ + acoustic guitar I'm gonna try to find some people to jam with or maybe do some solo projects. I'd like to think that'd I'd be able to stir up a scene around here If I really try. Hopefully I'm not wrong.
>>51153047 >smiletron, random, goto80, george and jonathan, dubmood muh nigga, that's some good shit
is dubmood chiptune though? i would like to help make a chart. Do you think it should be separated in at least 2 categories: chiptunes (as in able to be played in the real console), fakebit (chiptunes + other instruments, more channels than normal)?
>>51153576 Depends how far you want to stretch the definition of fakebit. There's so many producers out there nowadays incorporating elements of chiptune into their productions. And I mean you could go crazy fragmenting the list into categories if you wanted to. Just look at what the vaporwave kids are doing.
>>51153721 Yeah I dunno how First Crush ended up in there over Chipbreak Wars.
