All new chiptunes from Pulsing and via Pterodactyl Squad. We've got a seven track collection of Game Boy compositions, inspired by a variety of genres, along with memories of Earthbound. That is a whole bunch of things I enjoy, and I enjoy this album too!Read More
This is like the peanut butter and jelly of chiptunes right here. That crunchy grind of Comptroller and the soothing Game Boy of arcadecoma play off one another in this amazing two track split single.
Short but haunting hip hop remix of the melancholy music of Lavender Town from the original Pokemon games for the Nintendo Game Boy. Voodoo Lion lays it down ice cold in the most disturbing way possible.
The latest out of Pteradactyl Squad is a full length single track mix by Cooshinator. As far as I know, it's the first album of it's kind on Pte Squad, but it fits right in. As I began listening to the album I wanted to label this a chiptune rave dance mix, but as the album moves forward, it becomes increasingly more difficult to label this track as anything other than the 'LSDj trip" Pte Squad describes it as.
If you enjoy intense, bass rattling soundscapes and instrumental adventures, and I know I do, then check out this album.
The forgotten CVII
Lay your eyes on this fantastic remix of the most memorable music from Game Boy classic Super Mario Land. The Super Mario Land series was very strange compared to the console Super Mario platformers, and I wish they would bring that back in newer iterations for the 3DS.
At least let Mario continue to rescue Daisy in the handheld games. Daisy never gets kidnapped anymore, it can't be good for her self esteem.
Retro dance party...on the moon!
The surprisingly unstreamable, but who cares because it is free anyways and assuredly awesome new album from OverClocked ReMix is available now. Legacy: Game Boy 25th Anniversary is an album length album of tributes to classic and niche tracks from the original DMG-001.
It's a heartbreaker that Super Mario Land 2, arguably one of the best Super Mario platformers ever, was not in on the festivities. There are a ton of other classics though, such as the original Super Mario Land, Pokemon, and Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
Check out the brand new trailer for upcoming OverClocked ReMix album Legacy: Game Boy 25th Anniversary. Jam packed with OCR artists new and old, including some personal favorites like Hylian Lemon and Sir Nuts.
Celebrate the 25th anniversary of that classic gaming device by building your own with 3D printing and DIY electronics from adafruit.

My name is Xavier LaRue and I would like to introduce myself. I'm a 28-year-old male programmer that hopes to share with you guys my love for music. I'm going to help genoboost write articles about music I love as well as many other subjects.
When I was young, I used to play a lot of video games on multiple platforms. I had an NES, a Game Boy, and games such as Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, and Chrono Trigger. The music in those games left their mark on me.
When I got around to listening to the intro song from the album Roots by Danimal Cannon, I literally fell in love within seconds. That was my chiptunes awakening shall I say. I couldn't believe that this was done using a single Game Boy and was totally impressed.
Danimal's first album is absolutely phenomenal, but I'm digressing already. After this discovery, I started hunting the web for more of that chip goodness and found Joshua Morse's first Waveform album which has become one of my favorite albums of all time.
Later on, I bought the first Indie Game Music Bundle and that was my VGM re-awakening. Since then, I've been listening almost exclusively to VGM and VGM related music.
My interest in music is pretty diverse, I enjoy pretty much everything related to VGM. To name a couple of things I absolutely love:
- Nobuo Uematsu's FF OSTs in general
- Darren Kobb's Bastion OST
- Austin Wintory's whole collection
- Joshua Morse's Waveform series
- Ubiktune's whole collection.
In conclusion, I'll try, through my words, to make you guys feel the passion I have for game music and help you discover more VGM.
Cheers, Xavier "paxl13" LaRue
I couldn't drop the knowledge of Super Smash Land without giving away the goodness of flashygoodness and the Super Smash Land Hidden Tracks. This album contains exactly one awesome Ocarina of Time medley, not to mention a funky Lavender Town remix.
An alternate reality where Sakurai never wanted to stop making Game Boy games, the soundtrack of which is provided by Inverse Phase. I wonder if the Japanese version of this album art has the happy Kirby on it?
