PostSubject: Unicorn Kid and the Chiptunes Genre   Mon May 10, 2010 7:23 pm

Chiptunes are an interesting genre in which music is created out of oldschool Nintendo/Atari soundFX.
It's not very popular, but some of the prominent artists are Unicorn Kid, Anamanaguchi, Binärpilot, She, RushJet1, Bit Shifter and Dubmood. Look 'em up in last fm, if you like 'em.

For convenience, I posted my two favorite chiptune songs. Lion Hat and Helix Nebula.

I can't listen to it because of stupid "nintendocore" bands, so I'm always expecting to hear some stupid asshole start screaming and breakdowns.

I'm interested. I'll have to check it out some. And I don't see what it has to do with nintendocore...but I don't use that term anyways.

The beats in that first song sounded very very familiar. Is that a common sound in a lot of this kind of music? I don't know. I'll figure out soon enough.

It just reminds me of it because they also use 8/16 bit stuff

Nintendocore is a really dumb sounding genre
Should be called something like speed dragon demoncore
