Electric Children‘s “Arsonist” single contains the new 2012 version of Arsonist and a remix of Trash80’s “Missing You.” Hard-hitting Electro Chip dance music maestro, Electric Children cannot be ignored.
Electric Children brings us a new continuous Chiptune mix performed on a the Nintendo Gameboy. He writes:
Another 1xLSDJ Mix for you to enjoy. As the title implies, this mix is much tighter, more focused, and more coherent than the first-Like ambien for an insomniac.
And enjoy we do. Electric Children is showing us what it means to be a Video Game DJ, mixing a collection of songs on original game hardware. It’s so cool it makes me blog (no joke). Wait, that was a joke. Was it? I really blogged myself into corner here.

3. Castlevania-Stalker (EC Holy Water Version)
4. Electric Children’s a Sap
5. Peter Bjorn and John-Young Folks (EC 8bit Arrange Version)
Electric Children is one of my favorite Chiptune musicians. Wielding two unmodified gameboys, the Seattle based composer writes 8-bit bangers that are simply unmatched. YOU ARE is available from Bandcamp for only $9 for a whopping 18 tracks. Jack has sweetened the deal by providing a wealth of LSDj tips, tricks, and instruments for the Gameboy-musicians out there.
Jack writes: YOU ARE is the culmination of Jack’s work in his first year under the new alias, Electric Children: 12 hard-hitting electro tracks that are sure to get your heart pounding and your fist pumping. Party on, dudes.
