Everyone’s favorite and prolific micromusic techno master has released yet another chip mix for the past year. Brilliant as always, why he hasn’t been asked to play the actual Essential Mix is mystery to me. The cover GIF is by xcopy.
It’s hard to think of a nicer, more soft-spoken, more talented individual than Henry Homesweet. For a while, he has been producing these videos of him playing around with an assortment of gear in his basement or in his out-house (does it mean something else across the pond? not sure), this latest series focuses on some experiments with hardware, I think he’s syncing the 2 GBAs to the Roland TR-808 via that box with the LEDs and 4 big blue buttons. Don’t miss anything Henry Homesweet does, the man is brilliant in the studio and on-stage. Oh, here’s the first video in the series.
Bonus: His latest full album “Enter 5D” is available to stream on his SoundCloud
An amazing video for an amazing track from Henry Homesweet’s album “Enter 5D” (available for purchase from Antigen Records, additional US link). There’s all sorts of details of minimal techno that transport you into that party ambiance. Happy New Year everyone, I hope 2012 is beyond awesome for all of you.
If you missed out on Henry Homesweet’s YouTube Out-House sessions, you missed out on a chipmusic event of the past year. Each session almost impossibly better than the last, Henry Homesweet would record these in a similar fashion to his Lo-Bit Basement sessions. Well, luckily, instead of holding up your iPhones to your computer speakers and trying to bootleg the Out-House audio, you can now download it in any of many qualities from Bandcamp.
Wait, was I the only one doing that?
Carry on then.
