Overclocked Remix, the world’s largest video game remix community has just released an awesome 24 track tribute to Kirby’s Super Star for SNES! Directed by Arek the Absolute with beautiful cover art by PROTODOME, this album doesn’t sparkle in cosmetics alone.
As with all OCRemix albums, these are fan arrangements offered for free download direct from their site! They offer MP3 downloads either direct from their server or via BitTorrent. I suggest using the torrent, as it’s super fast and helps OCR save on bandwidth!
For those of you who have been into Chiptune music for a while, you probably remember the website 8bitcollective.com. Plagued with site issues like downtime and a finicky uploader, 8bc held a special place in my heart, it was an incredibly active portal for free chiptune music. Every submission was downloadable, and its where I learned of many of my new favorite artists, included Smiletron, MisfitChris and Electric Children.
At the end of last year, 8bc went down for good. Luckily, some crafty people took the time to create this: a torrent file of every song on the 8bc database. Just over 18GB, this torrent is massive chunk of chiptune history, and includes some songs that can’t be found anywhere else. And the best part, this torrent is entirely legal under Creative Commons.
For those looking for a new Chiptune fix, check out uCollective, a website started in the spirit of 8bc, with much more attentive developers ;)
