I have been all about the chiptunes lately! Is that a problem for anyone? I didn't think so!

The Ubiktune net label has just released a new album entitled Strange Light Under My Bed. However, these aren't the kinds of chiptunes you are accustomed to. No 2A03 / VRC6 NES sounds, no FM synth, no Game Boy blips and bloops... nuh uh. This time, it's all about retro computers.

On this five-track album, musician Yerzmyey pulled magic out of the ZX Spectrum 128K, ZX Spectrum 48K, Amiga 500, Atari 520 ST, and Atari Falcon 030 audio chips. Then he layered on psychedelic recording effects for a sound reminiscent of German electronica artists such as Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel, and Klaus Schulze. I personally think the music would work as the score to an early 80s sci-fi film.

Strange Light Under My Bed another freebie release, so go and swipe it from the link below.

It's crummy that our gut reaction to a new RollerCoaster Tycoon happening was that of concern instead of sheer joy. After RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile was announced for iOS, we learned that Atari has plans for a "PC experien...more

Atari says a new RollerCoaster Tycoon in the works for PC

RollerCoaster Tycoon was announced for iOS this past week. The response was as expected, and our own Jordan Devore in particular was pretty bummed out that it was coming just for mobile devices. Well turn that frown upside do...more
