Comptroller - Challenge! album release

Recently I was turned on to Scotland based chiptune composer Comptroller and his debut release Challenge! You can grab the album from his myspace page, and I highly recommend you do. This 5 song EP flows with funky grooves and catchy riffs. The album instills the image of space travel in my mind, from the opening tracks preparing to head into space, through the final three tracks which seem to take you across the solar system and entire galaxy. A personal favorite is track 2 Galactic Hero which starts off with a slow introduction and slides into a hectic up tempo beat and ends with an amazingly satisfying breakdown that made my heart pause for a split second.

Like I said, this is very recommended listening for anyone looking for some funky well written chiptunery. I for one can't wait to hear what Comptroller comes up with next!
