It's been six months since our last episode, but the Gamewave Podcast is pleased to bring you another guest hosted episode from Steve Jenkins of Crystal Labs. This mixtape features over 40 minutes of top-drawer tracks from artists including trash80, Linde, Jay Tholen and Spiny Norman, perfect for your chiptune-themed gym workout or for listening to whilst relaxing on the beach this summer.
And there's also some good news regarding the long-term future of the Gamewave Podcast. Now that Joe has finished his degree he's planning to head out to Japan this summer to start work there. However, having met up with members of Spheres of Chaos recently, the guys are plotting to begin recording episodes again over Skype soon. Look out for new shows from this autumn/fall.
Also, keep any emails coming in to the usual address. Despite the show being on hiatus at various points over the last couple of years, the emails we receive from fans have shown us there's demand for the show and are one of the reasons we've decided to start recording again. We'd especially like to have some artist/track requests.
Nerdapalooza isn't the only awesome nerdy music festival with 'palooza' in its title you know! Micropalooza is taking place over the 7th and 8th of August this year at the Ground Kontrol arcade/bar in Portland, Oregon. There's a great lineup of chiptune artists involved and at $10 per day or $15 for both days you can't go wrong. And if you do get bored with the music you can always go and play some Galaga.
