From Christian Calhoun of Medina, Ohio, Cooshinator is a hyper dancey project that draws influences from Fighter X, TREYFREY, Sabrepulse, USK, little-scale and Electric Children. I’ve never turned down an EP for having a dumb name, I’m not about to start now, this is exactly what my week needed, some booty-shaking classic chip.

One of those times I wish I could say it better but simply cannot:
Cheers from Sweden’s vektor,
sympathy for us teenagers out there.
curator of a bunch of kbps
accessible revolving around
fundament, and moved Retrospective
mixing it has also amazing minimal music,
elements but without losing
mysterious melodies and very personal,
but we are extremely pumped
about bringing music we are perfect for
a dirty, techno vibe.

and loads of the round
If you’ve ever encountered the amazing rawness of Eat Rabbit, you mostly know what to expect. If this is your first time, hold on to your butt, cause it’s gonna be shakin’. I’m just glad he posted this somewhat old mix for us to enjoy.
I quite like posting mixes on Friday afternoons, is anyone opposed? Something about hammering out those last minutes/hours before heading home for the weekend.
More listening: Eat Rabbit’s “Kiss the Dolphin” if you want to get confused and loud, it’s a free download, or you could give him €5 and be real cool.
Anyone even remotely familiar with chipmusic in 2012 will tell you that Danimal Cannon and Zef, individually, were already forces to be reckoned with. Dan mentioned this collab to me several months ago, likely at a show and when it was just starting to form.
What often feels like the most bizarre and somewhat metal face-off of dueling Gameboys turns into an extended jam session between two of the more brilliant programmers of the medium. Danimal Cannon’s melodies lead Zef’s chunky electro hits through what I can only assume is the musical equivalent of walking across the multiverse.
You can check out more of Danimal Cannon’s music at his Bandcamp or his band’s Bandcamp (who just released a new album a week ago!). ALSO, Fangamer has teamed up with Danimal Cannon to offer a merch bundle. DON’T MISS IT
Female vocals in Spanish yelling on top of thrashy Game Boy bleeps and kicks? I’ve never been so there the way I am there for this. My only regret is that there isn’t way more. They have a SoundCloud with the first and last tracks of the EP.
Here’s their bio from their Tumblr:
Sonido calzetin es una banda experimental, se alimenta de los microorganismos azules que salen del sonido de la gameboy, monstruos y fantasmas salen del ropero y bailan atraves de angulos de Ruido blanco, mientras que Sonido calzeta crea atmosferas con juguetes y sintetisadores, la vos de una chica zombie destruye los oidos de los alienijenas.
which roughly translates to
Sonido calzetin is an experimental band that feeds off of the blue microorganisms that come from the sound of a Game Boy. Monsters and ghosts come out of the closet and dance through jagged white noise while Sonido calzeta creates atmospheres with toys and synths, a zombie chick’s voice destroys alien ears.
If only they could figure out a Bandcamp so I could give them some pesos for some cervezas…
Found on the 56kbps Records netlabel, where it’s absolutely impossible to link individual releases.
I was hanging in a plug.dj room a while back when Sabrepulse played this for the room. I had heard of David E. Sugar but never about this collab. The grime vocals and the blocky Gameboy beats work exceedingly well. I’m just going to play this on repeat for a while, don’t mind me
YOU KNOW HOW SOMETIMES YOU GO TO THE BODEGA AND YOU BUY A LOT OF CANDY BUT THEN YOU REMEMBER THAT YOU HAD A BUNCH OF PIXY STIX LEFT OVER FROM THAT ONE TIME YOU THOUGHT TO YOURSELF “WHY DON’T I EVER HAVE PIXY STIX?” AND THEN YOU THINK IT’S A GOOD IDEA TO EAT ALL OF THE CANDY AND THEN YOU STAY UP ALL NIGHT AND WATCH YOUTUBE VIDEOS AND JUMP AROUND YOUR ROOM AND WHEN YOU TRY TO SLEEP AT 10 AM YOUR EYES ARE JUST LIKE O_O.
THAT’S WHAT THIS ALBUM FEELS LIKE. IT’S PRETTY DAMN GREAT ACTUALLY. ALSO, IT WAS THE SOUNDTRACK TO THE AFOREMENTIONED NIGHT.
Perhaps the album (Rdio, Spotify) on the heaviest rotation on my iPod in the last couple of months. From a random recommendation by a friend, I was delighted to find that balance of pensive and noisy that I quite enjoy in a lot of band-related music. The killer combination of an art school drop-out and a computer scientist, Bondage Fairies is named after an erotic manga and described as “nintendo-death-punk”, which is a somewhat apt descriptor conveniently divorced from the commercially-adverse label of “chipmusic” .
You can buy merch from their labels’ English shop, if you want to support them and what they do more directly.
Even more: track called Disco Fever, from their very first studio album, which was before music existed online?
