The unconventional conventionists at geekbeatradio have re-made the cult classic ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ in chiptunes and it is sweeter than Little Nell’s hot patootie. The movie, which is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary this year has been a beacon to weird kids everywhere and has a long celebrated history of live shows, fun songs and debauchery.
Rhythmus Records, a new Boston-based record label focusing on lofi, chiptune and chip music. The flagship album includes music from international chiptune acts, Fade Runner (Canada), Sugarpunch! (from Holland) and Coco Lowres (Germany). 12 artists are planned to release exclusive EPs starting in winter 2015.
Artists from within the US involve two scenes; Boston 8-Bit, and the greater American chip scenes including artists, RobotSexMusic and NickelPUNK. Mastering and graphic design came courtesy of Jeremy Highhouse at ViuLab in Portland, Oregon. Look out for up and coming young stars such as New England’s The Unicorn Princess. Kick off parties in Salem, Mass and in Portland, Oregon in Dec and January 2015.
