JANKENPOPP's new chiptune album Teh Art Of Party Trolling available now

Party glitch music

The album isn't available to stream in full apparently (wack) but the album is free to download (cool!) You can get acquainted with The Art of Party Trolling with the opening track, "Teh Lulz"

I started with Game Boy music around 2007, at this time there was no smartphones, tablets or whatever and Game Boy was (and I think still is) the ultimate pocket music tool for party trolling. Back in the days I was squatting around Easter Europe and parting mostly every night. My favourite game was to try to play at every party I would go, so I used to ask every Dj I met: “Hey bro can I play some super Mario music after your track? Pleeeeease!”
The nostalgic guy usually said yes before to realize I was actually trolling ultra-happy-rave-core-music into the speakers, driving people instantly nut and party rocking next level for 1 or 2 tracks before somebody kicked me out LOL. Long story short, this is my first Game Boy album, did it for Teh Lulz & hope you enjoy it!

Tracks composed by Jankenpopp on LSDJ between 2010 and 2015. Performed live through a Kaosspad and a midas vintage console on 12th February 2015.

Pixelh8 - Music Tech Pro Performer software part 3 of 3

A short time after his first two video installments, Pixelh8 has released his third in a three part series of youtube shorts explaining many of the features of the Music Tech Pro Performer. This third installment has less talk on pixelh8's part but continues to do a fine job showing off the software, which will be released for the GBA/DS. And even though these videos show off many amazing features, Pixelh8 tells me that there are many more, but they are hidden, and you'll have to discover them for yourself! And remember, you can find more info at Pixelh8's official website.

Pixelh8 - Music Tech Pro Performer software

He's a programmer, he's a musician, you know him as Pixelh8. Well pixelh8 has programmed his way into the hearts of chiptuners everywhere with his latest software, the Music Tech Pro Performer, the software sequel to his quite successful Music Tech program for the original GameBoy. This version steps it up to the DS/GBA, and makes some amazing use of the expanded memory of the portable machines. Pixelh8 has added tons of new features which he was unable to implement in his original software. You can check out his youtube diary videos below for all the amazing new features! People in the know have probably seen the first video, which was released a few weeks ago, but today Pixelh8 has uploaded part two of his software documentary to hungry eyes. Enjoy both videos, and for more info, be sure to check out Pixelh8's website, and join his mailing list to keep up to date!


The Quest for a USB Programmable Cartridge!

That is precisely the quest Jose Torres, AKA BleepBloop, Creator and Administrator for 8bitcollective is on. BleepBloop quickly explains himself and his plans as follows.

"So I guess I should tell you guys a little about myself before we get started. I'm entering my third year this fall in the electrical engineering program at the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. Ever since I learned about gameboy music, overpriced LSDJ cartridges, Nullsleep and reigner ziegler. I've been on a mission to build a cartridge that is affordable and easy to use."

He goes on to explain what he's been working on, some examples and pictures, and some more technical things. If you want to check out his ongoing work, head over to the thread at 8bc, and if you are a musician looking for an affordable LSDJ solution, consider sending a small donation his way as well.
