But before I go, let me talk about what’s coming Today I will be going back onto Gameface with the brilliant Graeme to feature the latest the chiptunes I’ve found over this past month. Below You’ll find the official set list:
- Paladin Shield – Silver Gates
- Timid Soul – Yankee Rose
- Melt Channel – Lite Brite Frite Nite
- Izioq – Blow into the Cartridge
- Trey Frey – Airglow
Me: How did you get into chiptune music?
Harley: Before I got into chiptune I used to play guitar, and whenever I tried to get a band together however, it generally fizzled out. In the end I gave up and instead decided to do electronic music and began to make it on a program tracker on my computer. During this time I found out about using Nintendo DS to make music and it worked out so well, especially for gigs. This snowballed out of control, and I found myself playings all over the world such as, Japan.
Me: How did manage to tour in Japan?
Harley: I just generally booked my flight tickets and flew to one gig in Kyoto, but I ended up doing a few others due to word of mouth getting across Japan. From then on I ended up going onto Australia due further word of mouth.
Me: Okay finally, what is your favourite old school game ever?
Harley: This is an extremely hard one to think of…I would say Dig Dug just down to its awesome sound track.
NEEDLESS TO SAY…
