Listen to the upbeat chiptunes of Losap track November


I am a big fan of seasonally themed tracks, especially ones about Fall or Winter as I languish in this desert heat here in Los Angeles. Losap answers my sun parched prayers with the track November. This is one of my favorite tracks on the rich fruit that is the Party Sometimes album.

More forthcoming on the album soon. First I Need to hunt down this Losap character and get some info out of him beyond his handful of posts over on This guy should never stop making music, that much seems true.

Dude Whatever It's Summer 2013 mixtape by Team Teamwork

tumblr_inline_mqhzy5yTFH1qz4rgp I have been listening to Team Teamwork and his summer mixtapes for the past several years, but with the release of Dude, Whatever, It's Summer 2013 (and that SMB3 intro) I can finally share with you the awesomeness of this odd but mood setting compilation of banging beats and classic jams.

Team Teamwork uses his mashing, clipping, and sampling prowess to create 45 minutes of pop hits like you've never heard them before. That SMB3 intro Yo La Tango is the first glimpse of what's to come. All of this creates the perfect set of tunes to blast while driving to the beach (or sitting inside writing). All I know is that, when that California sun is heaving down flaming heat balls upon me, it is time for some Team Teamwork!

Tribute to the beaches of Brazil in 'Chiptune Verão' by Videogame Orchestra

Chiptune Verão artwork

From out of the blue comes Videogame Orchestra's latest project - an album of bossa nova chiptunes, each one dedicated to a beach in Brazil. The release is called Chiptune Verão and contains over an hour of chilled out summer-themed music.

In fact, the release is split into two discs; the first contains the original 8-bit renditions and the second has their 16-bit counterparts. I can't imagine anything better than lounging on the beach this summer with this playing in the background.

Check it out over at Pterodactyl Squad or through Bandcamp.
