By | Releases | No Comments

About

Jellica’s second major release with us on CheapBeats!
The EP features a rich array of squelchy soundscapes as is typical of Jellica’s style, with sprinklings of house, techno, trance and early pop music vibes.

This release is tied to a very limited edition run of Teletext-inspired sticker packs created by the artist himself. Don’t miss it!

We’re honoured to finally get a CheapBeats debut from don’tblinkoryou’lldie. And what a great way to start 2019! Nathan is a very close friend of mine in the chip scene. Hanging out at #SST2016 and then having him perform at #SST2017, we have been on numerous adventures in Japan, including the world’s largest Buddha (tacky as it is…). Anyway, enough of that personal stuff! Check out this incredible release!!

[CB094] xyce – pop

By | Releases | No Comments

About

The seventh full album from the xyce boys!

It’s crammed full of all those good-time xyce tracks that fill your day with sunshine. Ahhhhhh xyce. Yeah, right in the feels. <3

— Cheapshot

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

Our seventh album.

And full it is, with a whole bunch of songs made on a lot of different machines. This album is a continuation of autre, with again very different styles per song, but still very recognisable xyce. Because we feel the entire album could be defined as 80s pop in terms of genre, in terms of arrangement, harmonies and melodies, this sounded like the perfect title (also, we wanted to name it /dix/ first (10 in French), but because most people will probably announce it differently than intended, that sounded kinda weird 😉

This being out seventh album already, we hope to introduce a new trend, where people discuss music as “Naaaah, the seventh album is always the best,” instead of the first one being the defining factor for an artist!

All jokes aside, we hope you enjoy this as much as we did making it.

Big thanks to CheapBeats and James for continuing to work with us despite the ever not changing cheesiness.

Love! XOXO Roel & Tom

[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!
