The king of the SID has been more productive than ever. December Data Kaos means a load of new releases!
GOTO80 - Bortabra
BORTABRA is 5 tracks in 55 minutes, mostly based on C-64 improvisation in ambient/electronica style. Well-balanced between chaos AND cute, ideal for chromatic enjoyment in sofas and meadows.
GOTO80 & Entter - _2_4×4
6 tracks and one machinima glitch video! Funk, acid, electro, ambient, buggy dub, house and noise - but somehow it’s all techno!?
He’s also on three newly released compilations, Level Up on DWD, Sudd mixtape vol. 2 (8-bit edition) and Holy 8bit Night on the newly started Japanese indie label VORC Records.
The compilation CD from VORC records costs 2500 Yen, about $23. (But you can preview the trcks online) It’s still unknown to me whether VORC records are associated with my favourite chiptune news central, vorc.org.
I’ve listened to the tracks, and I can attest that they are good sid indeed! So grab’em while they’re hot.
