A pretty jubilant release with uplifting chords and soaring arps and all the stuff that real chiptune fans should like but it somehow manages to be really weird at the same time.
Some quite nice tracker .mod techno. Goes with some nice crunchy samples to fit that floppy//
New Nanoloop iOS tracks from Gesceap aka Automaton Subsystem aka Mr. Spastic. Fairly chilled but tense electronica with bouncy basslines and a sense of nostalgic paranoia.
Hexadeci – XL65
This one goes on a full on 90s rave assault, noisy breaks and industrial bleep feelings. Remember when Warp Records were still cool? Yeah that. You can buy some vinyl as well.

Missed this nice looking 7″ when it was released in July. The A side starts off all 90s with some Drexciyan beats and bass arps. The B side comes on all underground 80s eurodisco. The kind of track you come across when you are flicking though terrible Italo records and you find some cool industrial tinged B side.
Sorry, I feel so lazy calling describing something as 90s sounding but I was in some young persons clothing store the other day and the hoodies all had designs that were so Designers Republic that it is still on my mind several days later.
is chipmusic chipmusic anymore? i think this might be an important question.
it seems to be less of a classic chiptune rock influenced record than the last nmlstyl release and i think this is a good thing. fewer rock guitars are always a good thing imho. so is tagging your releases as goth.
Another interesting one from the Chippanze crew.
Bunch of glitchy bleeps n breaks mess sourced from different systems.
a noisy nanoloop techno treat///
>>> This Nanoloop 2 one works best for me when it isn’t trying to go too dance floor or bass sub genre >>>
>>> It keeps some pretty nice electro grooves flowing with moments of some wobbly analog jam or some 90s Autechre smash hit >>>
>>> There is even a damn song called Bass Cadet >>>
>>> My faves are >>>

There are also two hidden tracks with nice pictures. I’ve not figured out how see them yet though. Something about renaming the directory or something.
An internet C64 person said that it is awful so I must be doing something right.
