Now that Blipfest is over, we’re calling on everyone to help keep the scene alive. Please make a donation to the UCW kickstarter, so that this project can move forward!
Ultimate Chiptune weekend is a 3-day festival celebrating various forms of dance-oriented Chiptune music-music made from old video-game hardware or software. The show will feature many of the top names in modern Chiptune world-wide.
Coming to you live tomorrow, 18 February, is Southern California’s very own:
Space Town Savior
There will be a livestream set up so you can all enjoy the action! Link to stream to be announced.
If you’re in the San Diego-area and want to go, a link to the event page is here:
These guys are incredible; be sure to check this post tomorrow for more details on how to access the stream.
After spending the last year working on new material. Melbourne-based artists Aaaron Justus and Mr. Roboto, a.k.a. Organ Grinder, are ready to take their music out of the loungeroom and onto the stage.
Find our demo here:
September Twelve by Organ Grinder. Or if you don’t like Facebook, you can go straight to the source on our own website.
Instruments used in this recording were:
Amiga 1200, Yamaha DX-100, Fender guitar and some shitty microphone which cost $10 from cash converters.
The process we used to record the demo was:
1) play all the songs live; vocals, amiga, lead. All at once
2) play all the parts separately along to the amiga track adding basslines and a couple of minor coup-de-grace’s
3) mix them together
We are determined not to use any DAW magic in our sound. No VST effects, no chopping up tracks, punching in/out, etc. and certainly no bloody Macbook! We like to think we’re good enough to perform consistently without needing these kinds of thing. We are a live band and all our songs have been arranged so what you hear on the recordings is pretty much what you would hear on the stage.

This is a little short-notice but after a series of unfortunate and unforeseeable circumstances, HunterQuinn, b4by f4c3 and myself were unable to make it out to New Jersey this weekend to play some shows. We regrouped last night and decided the best thing we could do to remedy the situation was to have a good old fashioned webshow.
Please feel free to post on here if you would like to play– we are going to hopefully have this going all night long as long as people want to keep playing.
it’s sunday, let’s make it happen//////////////
Summer’s nearing and end and I wanted to have one last big blowout before we go back to the grindstone, and us young ‘uns go back to school.
