Здравствуйте! For those of you who don’t speak Russian, Hello! We want to showcase this awesome project between the Chiptunes = WIN and Forest netlabels, Forest = ВИН! (Forest = WIN!)
Nick Maynard is the guitarist and LSDJ master behind the Revengineers, probably the best post rock chiptune fusion outfit around and definitely one of the best live acts. You might have also heard his work with the slightly more chill shoegaze/post rock of Noisewaves.
Today we’ve got a new release from Baltimore based chiptune musician Mega Flare. This time he turns his focus to the dark melodies of Castlevania. Using his Nintendo Gameboy running LSDj, Mega Flare collaborated with Dj CUTMAN to record each channel of the Gameboy’s sound-chip separately to mix them using Ableton Live. The result are two huge chiptune tracks with massive bass-lines and crystal clear leads. You can hear the influence of Baltimore’s clubs in Mega Flare’s drum programming.
