A little bit of 8-bit

Recently, I've heard a lot about 8-bit music. You know, the stuff they play on gameboys. After a little research, I found this cool program called 'Little Sound Dj' which lets you use a gameboy as an instrument. Pretty nifty.

Anyways, on to the music. Xinon is from Gunma, Japan, and has a nasty sound. And I quote,

"I'm Xinon that is a Japanese chiptuner.
I creating music by gameboy.
love nanoloop&little sound dj."

Right on. I really dig some of his stuff, but hypemachine only got me three tracks dropped on 'The Fast Life', so I checked out his myspace. Lo and behold, it had free tracks! And not just a couple, but 10 of em. Pretty ballin.

His music is moving fast enough to be called dancehall in some of the tracks, like 'Attitude'.

Xinon - Attitude

But in others, its a bit more soothing, well as soothing as crunchy 8-bit beeps can be, like in 'Moonlight Symphony'.

Oh, and heres a video of him Djing. Sick, eh? Looks like hes pretty into it.

Well, thats all for now, hope you enjoy the tracks, and if ya do, take a look at his myspace and grab some of the free tracks.
