Bit Shifter – [2006] Information Chase

Essential chiptune album from the (g)olden age of Creative Commons music.

Six 8-bit style tracks produced on the Game Boy, the album itself an oldie by now, coming from one of the genre’s great names. While I don’t recommend to listen to hours of chiptunes in a single run, the nostalgic vibes one can get out of this genre well justify exposing your ears to raw sawtooth, blank noise and only mildly filtered sine waves…

5. Bit Shifter – Reformat the Planet

What a tune, what a tune! Filled with catchy melodies from start to finish, served on top of punchy beats. Delicious.

3. Bit Shifter – Hexadecimal Genome

More cinematic, reminiscent of old side-scrolling shooter games set in apocalyptic scenarios, crashed spaceships and fallen buildings in the background.
