Sup y’all? Prez Hoodie here with another fantastic Chiptunes = WIN compilation announcement! Of course I’m talking about our latest April Fool’s release….
Chiptunes = #SrsBsns
‘Chiptunes = #SrsBsns’ (Serious Business) features 22 brand new meme-centric tracks (yes, they’re all written about/referencing memes :3 ) from a VERY talented array of chipartists spanning the globe. The premise is ridiculous, but the execution is damn near flawless (these cats ran with the crazy concept so very hard!). Per the usual, artwork by Foxdragon, track order by Kubbi, and mastering by videogamedj.com’s own Dj CUTMAN.
Why? Because Chiptunes = Serious Business, duh. 8-)
As always, stream/download/donate/share the goodness via the Bandcamp embed below!

GameChops is an electronic game music record label; It’s first of its kind to release licensed video game remixes. There have been many websites and other sources of great video game remixes, but no organization dedicated to legally clearing game covers and directly supporting those who make them. That is, until now.
I started GameChops back in April of 2012, intending it to be a simple netlabel. But in August of 2012, our album The Triforce of Bass hit #1 on Bandcamp, and I realized that I could do more with this idea. Thanks to the awesome guys at Joypad Records in San Francisco, we were able to start clearing licenses for our remixes with the companies that made the original games. Now, in 2013, we’re making that our mission.
By clearing the rights, it allows us to post our tracks without fear copyright complaints on major music outlets like iTunes, Spotify and Amazon. Furthermore, it allows our remixes to be used in broadcast and syndication, which is impossible prior to clearing the rights. It’s a very exciting idea for me to think about a time when a game company like Capcom or Microsoft might reach out and request a remix for use in their game. In fact, it’s already happening.
This compilation is a collection of our favorite tracks that were produced in our first year, some of them unreleased until now! I hope it can help use raise a little money to help support our operation, but mostly I’d like this comp to exhibit the versatility and scope of video game remix artists. From Ben Briggs’ incredible fun dub take on Sonic the Hedgehog, to my remix of Halo 4 featuring MegaRan, the compilation spans 20 tracks and a myriad of genres.
Titled simply “Game Music Record Label” this album contains new tracks and last year’s favorites! To say Thank You for the support we’ve seen thus far, the album will be set to “Name-Your-Price” for the first week. Please contribute what you can, all proceeds go to cover licensing and supporting GameChops.
Long live #gamemusic!
