'Summertunes' out on UBIKTUNE

ubiktune010After spring comes summer…

Another top notch compilation from Ubiktune, with 11 tracks by 12 different artists (yes, one collaborative track) made with various platforms.

C-jeff writes:

In the end of summer Ubiktune’s forces have gathered together to play the last summer songs of this year.



C-Jeff – Electric

c-jeff-electricPause continues to release high quality chipmusic. “Electric” by C-Jeff mixes chip sounds (mainly NES and C64 sounding) with guitars in a very impressive way, creating very powerful and emotional music in melodic prog rock style.

Pause writes:

The plot of Electric is the life of one man – from his naïve childhood, through happiness and darkness to the final light of heaven. This album is dedicated to memory of my father, Oleg Zhemkov, the great rock-musician whom I lost in spring of 2008. I miss you.

TCTD Podcast #006 - Russian ZX Spectrum Scene

I asked my friend C-Jeff to select a playlist representing the Russian ZX Spectrum scene, since I myself know very little about it. He gladly accepted, and sent me a zip of 27 tracks by 13 of the most important and noteworthy Russian Speccy composers, about two weeks later. I’ve enjoyed doing this episode very much, since I’ve discovered a lot of awesome music and have gotten a new insight in one part of the chipmusic scene I know very little about.

Since TCTD Podcast have had a break for more than a month, this is a kind of “double episode” trying to cover for it (it’s almost 70 minutes long). Enjoy!

TCTD Podcast #005 - Doskpop

“Tracked, cheezy, retro-futuristic synth pop influenced by italo disco” is one possible definition of doskpop, but it’s hard to say what exactly defines the genre. The name was invented by Lizardking, who also crowned himself the “King of Doskpop”. However, he was far from first composing this style of music. It’s arguably as old as Amiga music itself, and has it’s roots in other electronic music, like italo disco as mentioned.

This episode gives you a small representation of some of my favorite doskpop (and similar styles). Enjoy!
