Coova and little-scale - Two Warriors EP release

After having met at Blip Festival 2009, Coova and little-scale signed a treaty to merge their respective battalions and combine their unique combat styles in order to ward off evil enemy forces. Coova’s artillery of choice is the Nintendo Game Boy with the Nanoloop 1.5 ammo cartridge whilst little-scale’s war science research department has developed a weaponised strain of the SEGA Nomad. The result is an armed force to be reckoned with, ready to do battle on any audio playback system at high volumes.

We are going to be playing catch up quite a bit these days, but we will try not to leave anyone behind! Here's another great album that I missed during the sites recent dry spell. Coming our way by the folks over at 8bitpeoples, Two Warriors from Coova, and little-scale. Considering all the praise I heaped upon little-scale and his older releases, not to mention the oddity and grace that is Coova, who I have been an avid fan of since hearing the eclectic sounds of her 2009 release with Bud Melvin.

She's the DJ, He's the Rapper by Coova and Bud Melvin and Pravda by 8GB releases from 8bitpeoples


Sadly I am not too familiar with the enigmatic artist known as Coova, but I am fully aware of chiptune/banjo musician Bud Melvin. Well I am getting better acquainted with both thanks to the amazing collaboration between them known as She's the DJ, He's the Rapper available from 8bitpeoples. Right from the first track we get some catchy glitched up beats, and an epic introduction to the artists. From there you get more catchy clicks and clacks along with Bud Melvin's signature banjo twangs and soulful vocals. I have had this album on repeat since I popped it into iTunes, and is certainly recommended listening, although I have always had an affinity for banjos, so I am definitely biased.


8bitpeoples have not only released the heavenly chip/banjo duet above but have also recently released the newest effort from 8GB, Pravda, a fine cut of fiery, straight up chippy sounds to dance the night away to.

So there you have it! two new amazing albums from 8bitpeoples, but would you really expect anything less by now?
