Ubiktune – Equilibrium

I stumbled upon this album by way of Brandon L Hood and the Chiptunes=WIN facebook group, and I’m still in awe. Released in April of 2011 by netlabel Ubiktune, Equilibrium is a multiple artist comp of soothing, chilled out NES chiptune, unlike anything else I’ve heard. Original Sound Version writes:

“Equilibrium features 9 talented NES chip music artists, including FearofDark, Rushjet as well as surasshu who together create a soothing soundscape of tranquility, peace and a melodic balance inspired by the sea side and docks of Japan. The songs are ripe with inspiration and full of atmosphere, making use of ingenious sound effects to create a setting rarely heard from chiptunes, let alone NES based.”

Big Giant Chrismas EP!

Composer Jimmy “Big Giant Circles” Hinson brings us some festive chiptunes perfect for bringing in the season. Created in the vein of his wonderful full-length Impostor Nostalgia, these tunes are light-hearted, upbeat, and definitely fun. I must admit, I am not much for seasonal music. As a kid I used to get motion sick on our annual drives to see the family, which resulted in a conditioned nausea when I hear Christmas music (too much Gameboy in the car, no doubt.) I am pleased to report that this album, with stealar arrangements and mixing, is not only allowing me to enjoy this wonderful tunes, but will also breathes new life in my holiday travels (and hopefully yours too!).

My favorite track would have to be Circle of the Bells, an chiptune / orchestral take on Carol of the Bells. It’s epic, emotive and genuine, as much as I’ve come to expect from Big Giant Circles. As an extra special gift, follow @bigGIANTcircles on twitter for a chance to grab a free download code!

The album is released by Ubiktune and is available from Bandcamp. Happy Holidays!
