Quickly: best chiptune you have discovered in recent times?

 

Just lookin for some quick new chip goodness since I haven't looked much after the death of 8bc.

 

Say the first great ones that come to mind, no need to delve through your computer.

I know this is a very obscure question, but does anyone have any idea how Virtual Boy chiptunes worked? As in, what kinda hardware was used for the audio? What were the limitations? It sounds very similar  to Gameboy.

first of all, funky fm music just really does it for me.  Even if it's something corny like early mariah carey I can get way into the music with the fm bass and keys going on.   Then, there's everything else in this song.  The enigmatic title.  The synth programming brings out all the right emotional responses in me:  leads that remind me of thunderforce (even if the portamento isn't quite as exaggerated), chording synths that remind me of very old and charming genesis osts like super monaco (except somehow they don't sound as flimsy here), and of course a solid bass.  Great original motifs, interesting harmonies, good melody, rhythm.. everything that can make a song great is here!

If anyone feels like coming to Los Angeles around Martin Luther King weekend in January 2014, the two day chiptune festival that I organize and run is now a three day festival and will feature 21 artists from Friday January 17th to Sunday January 19th. I might make a thread here once the artists are announced, but it's going to be huge.

I dig it. Anything in particular you were going for? I kinda like how the piece "retracts" and then comes back up with a huge wind up.
