Ubiktune releases coda's retromazing tracer album

Ubiktune, the same netlabel that brought you the Genesis-flavored SOUNDSHOCK 2 and virt's excellent FX4 albums, is back with a brand new release by Ken "coda" Snyder called tracer. I really think coda is one of the most talented artists in the retro music scene, being a member of yogurtbox, the group responsible for Tree of Knowledge (you can hear a sample on our Soundcloud) as well as contributing to numerous compilation albums over the years. Oh, and he rocked out MAGFest a few years back too.

It seems coda has now ventured out on his own with tracer, a four-track album spanning over 25 minutes of retromazing goodness. There's retro funk that will remind you of the demoscene, a smooth electronic track that sounds like it was taken right out of a shmup title, a spacey rock track, and another rockin' tune that would easily fit in a beat 'em up title like TMNT. And as always, it's name-your-own-price via Bandcamp.

There's no reason not to check this one out. There's some great stuff here, so let us know what you think of what Ubiktune has been up to lately and what you make of tracer after giving it a listen.
