Beatles_STFUAJPGM

aka Episode #7 of STFUAJPGM is now available HERE. It’s a brilliant series of chiptune mixtapes, which I have mentioned previously, and this one contains the awesome remix of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band I mentioned the other day, as well as a few other cover versions of various artists.

This week’s theme: Alternate Worlds

In late 1988, the great professor Philip Henry Guttenburg Von Datamosh XIII disappeared from his home laboratory. He was known for his immense knowledge in many fields, as he held 9 doctorates in an array of fields including Ancient History, Computer Sciences, and Music Composition. The last known footage of VonDatamosh was taken from a security camera in his home. He was seen turning on his NES and Particle Field Generator at the same time. Years later, his journal was found in the very spot that he was last seen standing.

Enjoy! http://stfuajpgm.com/episode7.html

Following the re-release and remasters of all The Beatles’ albums, and The Beatles: Rock Band, comes WANNA HLD YR HANDHELD, VOL.1 by the 8-Bit Operators:

Almost 2 full years in the making, the 8-Bit Operators’ “Wanna Hld Yr Handheld, Vol. 1” Beatles tribute focuses on the glorious avant-garde and electronic side of the Fab 4 with over 20 of the biggest international names in 8-bit chip music, all utilizing the hardware of re-tooled, classic Game Boys, Ataris, Nintendo Entertainment Systems, circuit-bent toys, Commodore 64s and Apple II computers.

It’s pretty good, with my favourite track being the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. You can listen to it via the site, or you can pay fro the download HERE.

I don’t know what the hell that acronym stands for, but this is interesting. Taken from the site, this is what it’s all about:

STFUAJPGM is a miniature mixtape and magazine with a focus on the freely distributed music within the chiptune community. We hope to explore an array of themes inspired by video game culture (and more) in each episode, by use of short articles, videos, pixel art, and of course: music.

Each episode is split into separate acts and has it’s own little story to read along with it. There have been two so far:

Episode 1: The Story of a Hero

What Makes a hero? What runs through your mind when you’ve take thousands of lives?

Episode 0 (The Pilot): A Love Story

What better way to start a mixtabe series than expore the story of an 8bit couple?

It’s fantastic and definitely worth a listen. You can keep up to date with the release of new episodes by following their Twitter HERE.
