ChipTune DJ-Tool Project: Bit-Juggling

Son of 8-Bits - Bit Juggling

Time for some fun, time for some new DJ-Tools, time for some new (free) downloads! Here’s the down-low:

Today I release a previously unreleased DJ-Tool I made back in 2007. With the release of this DJ-Tool I start a new project I like to call ‘Bit-Juggling’. Every now and then, I’ll upload a new track on my project page ChipTune. There, you can sign-up to join the project and download the first two songs. After signing-up you get notified automatically when a new track is posted and each new one features it’s own unique artwork and sounds from different kinds of software and hardware, like, for example, KORG DS-10 Plus for Nintendo DSi or Little Sound DJ on the Nintendo Gameboy, a beaten old Commodore-64, or a friend’s Amiga. I might go all out and cheat a little, meaning my vacuum-cleaner and blender aren’t ruled out!

The album will be finished bit by bit, download by download. But here’s the catch: When the album is finished, it will be sold. Meaning that if you sign-up now, you get the whole album for free! Those that wait might have to pay a fee… Early-birds get the most!

See that Facebook share button up there? Or the Tweet button below? Use them to get your friends involved as soon as possible before the ticker starts counting. Let’s kick-off the project with the first DJ-Tool!

Inspired by hard hitting electro tracks such as IF’s ‘I Do Because I Couldn’t Care Less’ and Mr. Oizo’s ‘Smoking Tape’, this DJ tool features 808 style sounds taken from a Commodore 64 with the volume turned to 11. Mangled, twisted, and slammed through countless waves of distortion, recorded on a tape-deck, and then, neatly wrapped-up for use in your audio-reproduction tool of choice. Enjoy!
