Sometimes our weakness can be an asset. Chipmusician Electric Children has been suffering from sleepless nights as of late, so it should come as no surprise that his latest released is titled Insomniac. It’s a 26 minute 1xLSDj mix. For those not attuned to the chiptuner’s lingo, that means this entire mix was played from a single Nintendo Gameboy.
This is what it means to be a Video Game DJ, in my eyes. For those of you who have seen me live you know I don’t go anywhere without my red macbook pro and kaoss pad. I really admire an artist who can create music like this from limited hardware. After all, that’s the art of the Chiptune, isn’t it?
Post a comment of what “Chiptune” means to you.
