“After working on several remixes of chiptune-esque artists and working closely with Pixelh8 in producing his upcoming album "Videogames Ruined My Life" we decided to contact a few of our myspace friends "Stochastic" and "Air Fortress", we also stumbled upon "Game Music 4 All" and their myspace page which linked in a few others, we found the music of "Bubblyfish" on the end credits of a circuit bending documentary on Youtube.com and was blown away,and when we managed to convince "Aleksi Eeben" and "8 Bit Weapon" who we are a huge fans of, we were over the moon, we then slowly convinced and built up a list of very impressive artists, who were willing to take part in the project.

8 Bit Weapon, Stochastic, Pixelh8, Air Fortress, GOTO80, Aonami, Atarimatt, Sabrepulse, Bubblyfish, Burnkit2600 KPLECRAFT, 8 Bit Betty, Sm@rth, Makkina, Hi Score, Tree Wave, Action Adventure, Kidd Video, MSX Crew, Aleksi Eeben & more

The project then became so big, and due to our now hectic schedule, and to not keep you waiting for too long. We decided to divide into two volumes and so here is volume 1.

The sounds of videogames/chips/circuit bending always cheers me up, the usually upbeat cheery melodies made the project even more fun, we hope you enjoy the outcome, check out the artists and their pages. Our main aim was to bring the wonderful and varied sounds of chiptune to our friends and to further connect the world of chiptune artists with each other. I would sincerely like to thank all of those who have taken part, this project is free to download so more of you can hear and enjoy it.

Lots Of Love, Matthew & Junko”
