[CB104] Yerzmyey – The Lady of Mars

By | Releases | No Comments

About

This time I wanted to add some ‘live’ elements to tracked chiptune music. Trackers are cool but making some improvised solos is much better played “by hand”, in real-time.
To compare the pure tracker chiptunes with their ‘live’ versions I split this album into two parts – tracker and ‘live’.
Those have been made with NES / Famicom.
Also, I added some bonus-traxx – covers made with ZX Spectrum and toy-keyboards and synths. Enjoy. 😛

All the keyboards/synths parts have been played 100% live without any sequencing.

[CB103] Pulsing – Am Happy

By | Releases | No Comments

About

A sublime collection of fun-filled tracks to wake you up, get you going and fill you with joy! Am Happy is the debut album from Pulsing on CheapBeats and what a way to burst onto the stage. The chip elements fit perfectly into their aesthetic as a raw, hedonistic rush of thrashing guitars and thumping drums. <3

Welcome to the happiest chiptune wake-up call you’ll ever get 😉

[CB102] Grizzly Cogs – Deltaplane

By | Releases | No Comments

About

Special thanks to Vault Kid, LePlancton, Ganondorofu, 3D63, Robin, Cheapshot and CheapBeats for making this EP a reality and for their support on it. Thanks to Chiplove, Bitgrid, Bleep Love, A.MAZE, Chip Bit Day, Chipbanger, LeBarjack for making me part of this chiptune adventure. Thanks to all people who keep supporting me and giving me love, it means a lot. Thanks to my friends and my family for supporting me, giving me advice, you all have a big role in all of this, bigger than you think.

— Grizzly Cogs

Well well well, this is the first ever vinyl release that we have done on CheapBeats and I’m so glad it is with Grizzly Cogs. I’ve been a fan of his for a long time. His previous album Flocons was on heavy rotation for me and I missed out on getting one of the records for that.

This release is dripping with quality. Quality music, quality art, quality remixes. Such an amazing opportunity for us at CheapBeats to work with Grizzly Cogs, he is definitely one to look out for going forward.

Enjoy!

[CB101] Dot.AY – You’re Better At This Than You Think

By | Releases | No Comments

About

This release was written to perform at Square Sound Tokyo 2018. Having a supportive and enthusiastic community that pushed me to write more music is one of the greatest things about the chipmusic scene. The music is the result of trying something new and learning to accept and embrace my sound for what it is. On top of this, I explored collaborative recording at an analogue studio, direct to tape, no computers, a bunch of ears and no distractions. I hope you have as much fun listening as we had recording it!

— Dot.AY

I can’t believe this is the first EP we’re releasing from Dot.AY. Alex is one of the first people I came across in my chiptune adventures and he’ll always be engrained in my memory as “the dude that told me about the terrible Fukushima earthquake in 2011” (as I just got off a plane in Brisbane to meet him when it occurred). He is one of if not THE core member of the Australian chipmusic scene and absolutely dedicated to spreading good music and good times. Extremely grateful to feature this EP on CheapBeats. Alex’s style can be described as edgy, different, or even bizarre. This EP is no exception. Experimental, digital music at its best.

Big love from me, and I hope you all enjoy it, too.

Anyway, enough of that personal stuff! Check out this incredible release!!
