Chiptune record label/collective Data Airlines released this gem back in January and I stumbled upon it a few days ago. It features Zalza, Excellence in Art, Random, Misfitchris, Dubmood and more covering the music of Swedish electro/rock duo The Knife with a chippy, blip-bloopy flare. Listen and download below or read more/sample the album on the Data Airlines release page, here.

Guesswho, Whatzisface, Harry Fraud, and DJ Buffalo are No Question? MC’s/producers from Brooklyn, New York, NY and Got Game? is a Hip-Hop project with 8bit/Chiptune/Nintendo inspired instrumentals they made in 2008, but was shelved for one reason or another. Recently, the guys at NYC venue The Yolk met up with Guesswho and asked if they could help release it to the ears of the world. Guesswho obliged and the unmastered mix was released through the website, http://www.nintendomixtape.com.

You may remember Stage7 from my previous posting of his chiptune/8bit cover of the Daft Punk song Superheroes in the Da Chip! write-up. He intended to release the song with the Barry Manilow sample from the original intact for the compilation but couldn’t due to a reasonable no-sampling clause in the Da Chip! project rules. In a comment, he supplied a link to the original describing it as an “improved version of Superheroes that contains [the Manilow] sample (AND the rimshot in the beginning)” The sample kind of reminds me of the Skate or Die 2 synthesized voice.
Check out Stage7 and his other music on the interwebs at http://stg7.net.
