[CB090] Ello Costello – started commuting

By | Releases | No Comments

About

Uh oh. One covered smoke detector too many and this boy was kicked out of student housing at school. I was only burning incense, jeez! But the decision had been made – for the last half of the semester, I started commuting. These songs were written and edited on campus and on the way to school – inspired by the scenery of the city in the early morning, the rush of energy and adventure that comes with travel, and inspired by all of the music I would rock to on the commute. I had a blast writing these songs, and the chip elements are courtesy of my buddy Ethan Desautels (AKA DonutShoes) – we would hang at school and music swap, and he would show me all of the incredible Chiptune music he was aware of and making, and even how his tracker works! I was so inspired by the sounds and energy of the music that I included elements of chip in this release to make some sort of hybrid thing! I’m so grateful to Ethan and also to my friend Ricky Hoth (AKA CYMBIOTE) for making remixes of the songs on this EP – you guys rock! This is also my debut in the chiptune community and my first official release on a label (thanks Cheapbeats!) so I’m super excited to release “started commuting” – hope ya like !! 😀 ❤

— Ello

A stunning debut on CheapBeats for Mr Costello. A real sonic treat as Ello mixes chip and no-chip elements in this fantastic upbeat EP. With guest mixes from label mate DonutShoes and new a mind-melting DnB monster of a remix from CYMBIOTE, this EP will pump you up on your way to the office. Start commuting!

Big thanks to Dunderpatrullen for both working with me on the Hejdå Pappa remix and being awesome friends in general.

Also, I’d like to send some shout-outs to Irina, Kilohearts (Thanks for always listening, Anders!), Cheapshot (you’re doing one hell of a job, Yorkie!), Meganeko, Robotprins and all the other awesome people I have the luxury of interacting with.

[CB087] Tuberz McGee – Progression

By | Releases | No Comments

About

We are incredibly proud to bring you Tuberz McGee’s follow up to the epic (and a hell of a mouthful) “Tuberz McGee and the Mildly Inappropriate Dinner Conversations with the Highly Probable In-Laws

cheapbeatsmusic.bandcamp.com/album/tuberz-mcgee-and-the-mildly-inappropriate-dinner-conversations-with-the-highly-probable-in-laws

This album sees Tuberz stay off the mic and focus all of his energy on making huge tunes. Huge tunes that you can see how were made (apart from the guitar parts of course….!). Yep, that’s right, for purchasers of this album, you will get:

[BONUS] All SAV data! [BONUS]

— Cheapshot

This album is a testament to years of work and improvement. My skills as a musician have improved tenfold and it’s because of what I have learned from others. This album is intended to be a launching off point for others when they are wanting to learn, which is why I have included all of the save files for the album. Enjoy listening through my progression~!

Thanks: Cheapshot, cTrix, and anyone who ever told me something sounded good or didn’t sound good enough. You’ve all pushed me in your own way.

<3

[CB085] Laffe the Fox – Last Tear to Fill the Cup of Emptiness

By | Releases | No Comments

About

A concept EP all about sadness and crying.

(´;ω;`)
( ;∀;)
。・゚・(ノ∀`)・゚・。

– Cheapshot


I made these tracks mainly as an exercise, focusing only on composition, experimenting with some different time signatures. It’s very minimalistic, as there is only one instrument used other than a few percussion samples, but I rather like the quietness of these tracks, I enjoyed making them, and hopefully you might enjoy listening as well. Either way, thank you so much for the continuous love and support. I really appreciate it. ♡

[CB082] Offbrand – Comeback

By | Releases | No Comments

About

On September 12, 2017, I almost took my own life.

This album is about the cavernous lows and the mountainous highs that led me to that point, and about the moving I’ve had to do in the time since. This is an album about losing a best friend and about climbing the tallest mountain in California. This is an album about giving up and about giving in. This is an album about being consumed by anxiety and about being consumed by love. But on top of all that, this album is the story of my own self-discovery, my own redemption, my own Comeback.

Let it be the story of yours too.

— Offbrand

===================

We are extremely pleased to announce the return of one of our greatest composers under the new guise of “Offbrand.”

The album is packed to the brim with quality. Powerful, moving, uplifting and melancholic. There are so many emotions expressed in this album, it really is the most delicate and vulnerable album this artist has produced to date and we are thrilled that they entrusted us to release it.

<3
