Chipspeech Says it Like it is

I’ve been beta testing a new VSTi from the meticulous lo-fi emulator dominators in Plogue. Chipspeech finally makes it possible to sing with old speech synthesis chips! So I’m working on some songs, and I put Crossword Puzzle in the Automate compilation of Chipspeech songs, that just came out.

Earwormy FM-pop with crossword propaganda for the whole world!


Iron Maiden Amiga Javascript Sega Megadrive

Stuck somewhere in time is a music disk with Amiga-versions of Iron Maiden songs. It runs on HTML, Sega Megadrive and Amiga. I made a cover of Run to the Hills for it, mostly inspired by Anton Maiden’s version of it.

The HTML and Sega Megadrive versions were released at Compusphere, and the Amiga version is coming soon. Made by the demoscene groups Up Rough, Insane & Titan. Yeahä! \m/


Chippendales Complete Discography

In 1999 I released a song for Chippendales, a group of Amiga composers releasing – you guessed it – chipmusic. Now all the songs have been recorded and put on Soundcloud: part 1 and part 2 (above).

This is basically what chiptune used to mean in the 1990′s: sample-based bleepy pop music made on Amiga or PC. This era is often forgotten in histories of chipmusic, because it doesn’t fit with the current definition of chipmusic based on PSG soundchips (more about that in my thesis).

Chippendales may or may not have had legal troubles with Chippendales.


Happy Pop for Weekly Treats

Japanjul_prv is a cover of a Japanese christmas song that I made for a compilation many years ago. It might be around in some hard drives, as it was released in a Pingipung christmas thing once. But here it is again, more easily available.

It’s released at Weekly Treats, as Superbyte (a festival I’m playing in Manchester in September) is putting stuff out there this week. It’s bound to be a good festival with people like Zabutom, Jellica, Steve, Kodek and many others are playing there. Don’t miss out!

8-Bit Operators Does Depeche Mode

8-Bit Operators is a series of releases where chipmusic people remix famous bands. Previous releases have focused on Kraftwerk, Beatles and Devo and now it’s time for Depeche Mode. Just like the previous ones Enjoy the Science is an official release and I’ve been told that Martin Gore has approved it personally.

I’ve remixed my own C64-remix of Boys Say Go from way back when. Fonky & freaky! Other artists on the compilation include gwEm, Herbert Weixelbaum, Aonami, Bacalao, Gameboy Music Club, Firestarter, and many others. So don’t say no, boys say go!


Galaxus – a C64 Comic Book

Galaxus is a new project organized by the legendary C64-artist Chantal Goret. It’s mainly a comic book but also a website, USB-album, t-shirts, and a lot more. I’ve made some music for it, along with Divag and Chantal himself.

Galaxus is looking for funding so please help make this happen! I doubt there’s anything else in the world like this..


V/A: Funky Freaky Freestyley (Datafruits MP3)

New compilation from Datafruits with music that sort of looks like the graphics there. I have contributed with a song along with people like Dr. Vector, Firedrill, Ovenrake and Smoked Meat Fax Machine.

My song, Vatican Power Loop, is a straight-up Amiga module that only uses stolen teenage samples from the early 1990s. Made tons of those songs lately, should release them some day..
