Have you ever thought how fucking cool it would be if all your favourite 80’s computer games came alive and invaded New York?
Nah, i didn’t think so. Me neither.

Seeing that video reminded me of a post that i’d had planned for ages ago but never got round to. I was planning on doing a Monday List based on 8-bit tracks and chiptunes. Like i said, i never got round to it. I may one day but until then you can enjoy these select few songs of computer generated madness courtesy of Scotlands very own Firebrand Boy and the young 8 bit genius from Edinburgh that i’ve championed for the last 18 months or so, Unicorn Kid. Also worth a listen is the fabulously named Unicorn Dream Attack. Unicorns seem popular in the chiptune world.
I’ll try and get an 8bit themed Monday List up soon. There are a lot of artists out there worth mentioning. A few have been mentioned on this site before but there’s so much unrecognised talent out there. The first person who got me really into chip music a few years ago was a guy who went under the name of “Radio Waves Goodbye”, sadly he seems to have disappeared now and stop releasing music under that name but it was through listening to him i got into another dude called “Silent Requiem” and then it was just a juggernaut from there…..Huoratron, Breakbeat Heartbeat, SHE, Unicorn Kid, Firebrand Boy, Nordloaf, Amanaguchi and many many more. It really is a genre worth pursuing and exploring. Different, unique and ultimately enjoyable.
