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.

Da Chip! The Music of Daft Punk Revisited on Vintage Game Systems (Album) + Bonus Tracks

da_chip_front

This tribute, titled Da Chip! is a project spearheaded by a French musician by the name Je deviens dj en 3 jours that consists of video game music (chiptune) inspired remakes of Daft Punk songs from various chiptune composers. It’s awesome; so awesome that I just danced to it in my room by myself for about 15 minutes straight but then again, I also have a soft spot for video games and chiptune music while also being a fan of Daft Punk. Outside of the links to download the tribute and the bonus tracks, I’ve selected a few tracks that can be listened to from this blog entry. The webpage for the project is located at http://jedeviensdjen3jours.com/dachip.

The first song I chose is from UK chiptune musician, Microchip‘s rendition of One More Time from DP’s Discovery album. It makes me feel nostalgic to the times I used to watch the skateboard video, Chomp On This (which happened to have somewhat a video game inspired theme to it, via it’s use of Pac Man imagery) everyday after school before going skateboarding.

The second track, covering Daft Punk’s Superheroes, from Spanish artist, Stage7 translates the Barry Manilow sample driven song into bleep-bloopy goodness. It also makes me think DP sampled the title track from the Super Nintendo game, Top Gear, for the bridge of the song even more. (Seems also the sound has also been used in the band Muse song Bliss.)

Mash-Up Monday #2: Lil’ Jon and the East Side Boyz – Throw It Up (Lankizzle Remix) (Feat. Young Buck & Pastor Troy) (.mp3)

throw_it_up

I’ve had this song lingering in my iTunes for years. I have no clue where I found it except that it was labeled as “Lankizzle Remix” and a Google search for Lankizzle comes up with a few, songs, from a mixtape titled Lankizzle Presents Video Game Remixes V2 that contained rap acapellas over beats that contained samples from classic video games. The song featued in this Mash-Up Monday is a combination of the vocals from Lil’ John and The East Side Boyz’Throw It Up” (Feat. Young Buck & Pastor Troy) mixed with a beefed-up version of the Koji Kondo composed Sanctuary area music from The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past on the Super Nintendo. I hope to stumble across both of Lankizzle’s VG Remixes mixtapes one day.
