Chiptune legend Fighter X just released his first new album in four years. BERSERKER is available on Bandcamp for name your own price.
Writing his music on a Gameboy with LSDj, Fighter X has been considered by some to be a pioneer of Chiptune dance music, since his self-titled release back in 2009.
The Fighter X project has gone through some changes over the past eight years. Originally started in 2005 by Seattle-based Chiptune musician Nickolas Walthew, Fighter X later incorporated Jack Waterman, creating one of the first 2xLSDJ 2xHuman-Being chiptune acts. When the duo split in 2011, Nick took a hiatus from Fighter X while Jack went on to start his own project Electric Children. On June 1st of this year, Fighter X began performing again, starting with a show at The Vera Project in Seattle.
The ChipMusicChronicle brings us the entire weekend of BlipFestival 2012 in a single YouTube Playlist. The whole show from front-to-back has been captured from a spot in the crowd, it’s the closet thing to being there. My heart breaks a thousand times for missing it this year, but thankfully I spent my time playing awesome music with new friends in Austin. Thank the Chiptune Demi-Gods for The ChipMusic Chronicle.
