At first I thought it might be a bit of a mean idea, mocking both the original writer and the artist but then I tried it and it just came out as a bunch of nonsense. It read like I was maybe a bit confused about everything.
If you like squelchy C64s, listen to Goto80. If you like the chiptunes, head over to The ChipWIN Blog.
Another nice mix from akaobi. This one is a variety of slinky laid-back tracker tunes from a bunch of different formats. There are a ton of other nice mixes on his mixcloud and I can’t keep up with them all.
Most stuff should now be fixed. Thanks for everyone who contacted me.
I’ve corrected a bunch of dead links for some of the older releases that were hosted on Lazerbeat‘s old webspace. I guess I missed updating some of the links when we moved from the test website he had hosted and when I fucked up the old website he built.
There are however still a bunch of dead links to other websites that hosted some of the older releases. Lots of the old preview links are dead too because they were from the days before you fucks had streaming everything on your dickhead portable multimedia devices. :P
Wow, there are even links to artist MySpace pages.
I’m trying to contact artists and update where I can.
If anyone has any of the following releases stored somewhere you might make me happy:
My Two Robodads – How Thoughtful – from 2008
Grand Theft Andrew – Robot love Songs – from 2006
The first Nanoloop Mono experiments have started transmitting. This is the first one I’ve seen put forward as a finished work, and damn can this thing do warm. Looking forward to hearing more from this thing.
8bitpeoples have put out their first new release since the 1980s, with a video from the excellent Raquel Meyers. It’s always good to hear some Game Boy music that isn’t nintendo nostalgia driven eugh. Hopefully there will be more new 8bp to follow. The chip scene could do with more curated releases.
Old and new chipmusic and tracker music and 8bit and 4bit and 1bit or whatever music I have discovered recently, along with a few old favourites.

The first track is a bit long but bear with it, it’s great.
Fresh release! Chip style reggae with wobbley robot vocals. I’m hoping that someone spent ages programming text to speech phonetically in a Jamaican accent. It’s cute, funky and full of sing along moments like a vocal hook from that song what was sampled in that Prodigy track.
