Jellica follows up his ‘Flappiest Bits‘ with some of his less flappy bits, I suppose? A collection of various tracks that are scattered all over the internet in miscellaneous compilations like an easter egg hunt that takes up space on your hard drive – now all in one convenient place! Don’t worry though, this isn’t some rubbish “yeah I’ve heard this before” selection, there are some brand spanking new tracks, including some top remixes by Jellica (remixing Video Game Orchestra, Victoria and Jacob, and previous CDKr Releasees VideoValvontaa – Jellica only listens to artists who begin with V, apparently) and from others of Jellica (Flashbob, Analog, Steve and esc)!

TLDR? If you like Jellica, you’ll love this!

Astonishingly dirty basslines? Check. Thumping Beats? Check. Samples from all sorts of various nooks and crannies in pop culture? Check. Christmas Song? Check.

Wait, what?

Most ordinary mixes don’t have Christmas songs, but then, most mixes aren’t by Atari and axe wielding madman Gareth Morris, who celebrates his 10th year of being ‘The One They Call gwEm‘. During a short period of not being busy from touring all over the world, from London to Toyko and almost everywhere in between, or putting on his own shows, or making his own Atari music composing software maxYMiser, gwEm has managed to make this astonishing 35 minute mix of old and new music into an unforgettable dance mix, that will surely cement his position in the chipscene for at least another ten years!

Some say he once crushed a Nintendo Game Boy with his own bare hands, some say he gets his sounds by forcing the souls of his enemies into his LSDJ cart, what is known is that his name is Comptroller, and he hails from Scotland. In this release, Comptroller vanquishes his demons in four intense music journeys, and has somehow brought them into this plane of existence for you to listen to, if you dare.

Adam Schackart may be Plain Flavored by name, but his music certainly isn’t! Hexadecimator includes five tracks of DMG music influenced by a dream that took place in the summer of 2009, as well as eight years of previously abandoned works. This creates a work that is both somehow fractured and complete at the same time, turning from underclocked churning to high powered energetic music instantaneously.

Click here to download Various Artists – The Square Wave Conspiracy (.zip format)

arottenbit, Buskerdroid, Kenobit and Microman have given birth to the Square Wave Conspiracy, an album with aims of showing the world what the Italian micromusic scene is capable of, which is clearly the blistering destruction of Game Boy music as we know it! This album shows the lads remixing a song from each other, finishing off with a brand new original track from all of them, leaving you in a catatonic state of frenzy!

All the recordings are the raw output of the Game Boys, to preserve the roughness and power of the 8 bit sound.

Once upon a time, Australia’s Derris-Kharlan played a gig. Not only did he play a gig, he shook the foundations of civilisation as we know it, to leave the world forever changed. Luckily for us, someone managed to grab a superbly high quality recording of it, and it is presented to you so that you too can embrace the brilliant music.

Props to the SoundBytes crew for letting CDKr host this, cTrix for the mastering and pixls for the stunning artwork (click for lush HQ version!)

All the way from Washington D.C., Blog fiend/Musician/all-round chill motherfucker Dauragon C. Mikado (or Dauragon to his friends) has slammed 5 tracks of hip-hop goodness this way. From a slight bobbing of the head to full on hip-worrying booty shakin’, Dauragon covers all the necessary dance styles with class, and plenty of obscure pop culture references.
