The chiptune collective and compilation series Chiptunes = WIN has just put out their latest volume, with a whopping 51 TRACKS from chiptune musicians from around the world. I have the pleasure / challenge / nightmare of mastering these tracks together for the volume’s release, it was epic and I’m very happy with how it all turned out.
You can stream and download the Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 3 below. For more details, check out the FULL DETAILS page on The ChipWIN Blog.
With but a few days left before the July 15th release of Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 2, the final touches are being put in place; Dj CUTMAN is preparing the final masters for upload, Kubbi is locking in the track order, & I’m triple checking everything there is to check thrice over & THEN AGAIN.
In the meantime, HAVE A PROMO VIDEO (full roster listed within):
And how about some KICKASS ALBUM ARTWORK while you’re at it:
Regarding Volume 2 merch by Maddie of Pixel Pixie Apparel & Promotions, YES.
(sorry, that’s all you’re getting on that until Monday ;).
And, of course, don’t miss the crazy Vol.2 listening party on 8 Bit Power Hour + Nerd Rock Radio starting at 8pm EST Monday on 8bitx.com (click HERE to go to the Fb event). I expect it to be JUST as ridiculously awesome, awesomely ridiculous as the first one (i.e. VERY much so 8).
3 MORE DAYS, Y’ALL. ^_^ ^_^ ^_^

YUP. You read that header correctly:
IT’S TIME FOR CHIPTUNES = WIN VOLUME 2, PEOPLE.
And by volume 2 I mean the true sequel to the wide open, ALL chipartists invited, worldwide, monster compilation that we unleashed on the chipworld last summer.
Yup. That’s right. Open to EVERYBODY. And the submission deadline isn’t until June 17th, so you’ve ALL got plenty of time. ;)
For some details on the project, check out this video of me excitedly rambling about it:
Snarkyass monkey hat…. >_> THAT’S THE LAST TIME I WEAR YOU IN A VIDEO!!! :P
At any rate, for FULL info on the project (including many of the finer details that I failed to mention in the vid :3 ), give the project gdoc a good read here:
It’s damn hard to believe that it’s been nearly a year since this whole ChipWIN compilation business got started. And I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than with this.
Enough chat!! LET’S DO IT TO IT, Y’ALL!! ^_^
