Best of Kittenrock

We’ve been around for over 10 years so here is a selection of some of my favorite tracks that we have released over the years.

Part one is mostly Game Boy stuff because there is so much fucking Game Boy stuff and Part two is more of a mix of things.

Captive Portal – Laughing Turkeys EP December 2015 – KR073

The second track had me cracking up with some crazy frog feelings and then there is a funky one and then a weird one and its xhrist mas as well. Also includes original tracker files.

Tumble & Toast – Knallert Forbudt EP

Laid back instrumental beats mixed with Game Boy twinkles and textures. I wish there was more slow Game Boy music. The third track slaps it down a bit too wide with its big synths and piano riffs but the first two tracks have a great austere groove.

Weekly Treats

You want loads of fucking free chip music? Check out Weekly Treats. It was a bunch of different curators choosing different stuff but now each year is available in single handy downloads. Sure there is probably some naff stuff but most tastes are covered with plenty of different styles represented. 195 traxx. Respect to Andrew for his hard work.

░▒▓ – ≡/∩

░▒▓ aka 176177178 put out a new release of pops and crackles which he has described as lofi glitchy field recordings. ░▒▓ is probably JM aka Joss Manley aka Josstintimberlake and this is probably not 8bit music.

8bitpeoples mix tape thing (Some 8bp favorites)

I put together a selection of 90 minutes of my some of favorite 8bitpeoples stuff to listen to on my bike. All this jazz can be downloaded from 8bitpeoples.com for free or some dollars.

tMt- Regress

Interesting Game Boy/chipmusic releases seem quite few and far between these days. Sure, some kids released some technically spectacular EDM/Trance/Bassmicrogenre stuff but they didn’t seem to contain much emotion beyond party hard dudes and they leave me feeling a little cold.

Then I was just cruising the chipmusic.org website and saw that tMt (the mist toggles) had released a new little something on Chippanze. Full of bass, atmospheric textures, moody feelings and freaky percussion.

Apparently it’s all about interactions between sounds, waves, ear drums, modulations and adaptations and it aims at physical reactions by attentive listeners.
