PB062 | Kommisar - Kommisar's Fakebit Metal World Tour

Roll up, roll up, Kommisar's Fakebit Metal World Tour has come to town! Sweeping across nations in a wave of destruction and super sized explosions, embrace it or be left behind buried beneath the trail of rubble!

Starting with the ear shatteringly good 'CYBORG BEAR ASSAULT 6' it catches you with its driving percussion and strong bass before applying the synthetic lead guitar on top, warming you up for the rest of the EP. 'Hybrid Brute' hitting you hard with its double stroke kick drums, 'Serendipitous Paraplegic Murder' with its driving bass and screaming lead and 'steel bomber' with its ability to make you feel as if there are a large number of projectiles raining doom down on you from above.

PB061 | Datamancer - Geosmin

You may of heard him on the singles competition compilation album a couple of months ago, but now Datamancer is back with his very own EP.

The first thing that comes to mind after hearing this three track EP is short, but very very sweet. Datamancer has crafted 3 excellent tracks. Starting with Quixotic, you are welcomed with a sweet melody, beckoning you in. The catchy drums keep you held in its grips right the way through as the melody weaves its way along, twisting and turning as it goes. The next track is Lit Up, starting off with a catchy drum beat it then drops with an awesome dubstep bass, which is followed by something to get up and move to. The final track is 11-11-11 this wastes no time in making you want to move to the beat with its 'four on the floor' drum beat and catchy bass and melody, while still brining in ambience which rounds the track off nicely. This needs to be listened to!

PB060 | Whitely - YOU & I

Another Pxl-Bot debut, this time from the extremely talented Whitely. Crafted in the fires of Mount Doom this EP draws upon different genres of electronic music to show and tell its story.

Starting with the beautifully melodic 'At first i was lonely, but then..' it draws you into this story that is being told and holds you tight. Each track is full of emotion, the songs seem to reach inside you, communicating at a personal level. Half way through you reach "I started to care to much, but it was still..' drawn in my at atmospheric start, building up, you know somethings coming, then it drops, and suddenly something you thought couldn't get better, got better. Finally 'The end.' rounds it all off beautifully brining all the emotions of the story to its climax and leaving the listener thoroughly satisfied with the tale that has just unfolded before their eyes.

PB059 | Deepearth.void - Become The Void

Making his Pxl-Bot debut and showcasing his first full release for some time, the fantastical ‘Deepearth.void’ brings you 10 tunes of funk and complex dance to put a smile on your face.
After the drone-infused short intro, the track ‘Coconut’ sets up the listener for what is to come in the rest of the release. Sharp and concise structure which swaps and switches between styles and atmospheres, complex melodies, countermelodies and basslines that warp around each other to form a think consistency, and a fuck ton of funk and dance. Some of the melodies are truly awe-inspiring, and from the off you’ll be addicted like this shit’s smack.

PB058 | AlexOgre - Surfing Mind

AlexOgre's debut album here on Pxl-Bot is nothing short but brilliant and we are very pleased to be releasing it.

Starting off with Foam, a track which manages to conjure up memories and thoughts of sunny days walking along sandy beaches, the waves lapping at your toes and gulls flying overhead. It introduces you to the rest of the album almost gently before the floor filling, fist pumping, dance hits you and there is nothing you can do to help yourself from moving along with the beat. Finally as if yo give you a rest from dancing, the final track farewell is more chilled, it eases you out while still upholding a awesomely high level of quality. This is definitely worth a listen!

PB057 | AndaruGO & HunterQuinn - Echo Layer

And now they join forces.

Entering the fray with a fist-pumping throat-ripping and eye-popping duet as an intro track, the dual forced fist of both AndaruGO and HunterQuinn is truly great. Traversing the softer tones of Hunter and mixing them with the harsher barks of AndaruGO before converging their love for sweat-inducing beats, the two duet tracks showcase a higher understanding of dynamics and the harmonious attention to each other’s’ details inspires awe.
Saying that, the four tracks, two by just AndaruGO and another two by just HunterQuinn, are nothing to turn your nose up at. 

PB056 | HunterQuinn - Bourbon Back Attack

The second artist to grace Pxl-Bot from Cincinnati this week, HunterQuinn breaks his debut through your earscape.

Pumping. HunterQuinn’s debut ‘Bourbon Back Attack’ can be defined almost entirely by this word. Never sitting still for a second, HQ spins and twists his beats and melodies which are melded perfectly for the dancefloor, with that typical Cincinnati chic gloss of experimentation (see ‘J33Z FACTOR3’ intro for more details). From the fist-flinging intro to the ass-shaking cascade of ‘Fucking Dance’ and through the slower tension-rife guttural whippings of ‘Buttaface Bergade’, HunterQuinn has managed to craft one of the most danceable and pure addictive releases to date at Pxl-Bot, with a huge amount of professionalism to boot.

PB055 | AndaruGO - Megadoomer

Taking the place of the third artist from the expanding Cincinnati scene to be featured on Pxl-Bot, AndaruGO delves into the world of trance and dirt for his debut release, ‘Megadoomer’.

Starting the with title track, a dirty and gritty convulsion, AndaruGo then goes on to start as he’ll continue throughout the rest of the release on ‘Hokutou’, fist-pumping grime-inducing trance-esque chip sonnets. Featuring as many truly jaw-dropping moments as you can possibly fit into six tracks, from the pure trance breakdown into the schizophrenic melodies on the climax of ‘Shark War’ to the slow downed swagger moments of ‘Zawarudo’, this release showcases the exact reasons why the developing chiptune scene in Cincinnati is such an exciting one; it creates dance-floorable tunes with a mission statement of “defy the conventions”.

PB054 | Fauxhound - He Lives Forever

New Zealand’s answer to 10k, Fauxhound, delivers his stunningly bleak spit of a sophomore effort on Pxl-Bot in the form of ‘He Lives Forever’.

Opening with the sickly depressing tone to which the rest of the release would follow, Fauxhound’s masterful blending of spoken rhythm and meaningful words intertwined with glitchy and rolling drums and melodies creates an incredibly dark and gritty listen. Song ‘love + secrets’ lends a groove to parts of the vocal work before towering up into a cascade of chip sounds, whilst ‘door to door’ pulls its own teeth out before Fauxhound’s incredibly punk-esque dragging voice adds to the insanity. ‘diesleep’ carries a creepy and sleepy tone until Fauxhound begins to spit his depressed pessimisms, before the final track barks widely with a slightly more optimistic but no less creepy feel.

PB053 | VCMG - Focal Point

And for the second release of Halloween we visit the other side of the spectrum, first brutality and now beauty brought to us by another returning favourite, VCMG!

After his astonishingly beautiful debut, VCMG returns having learnt how to make his music even prettier. From the closing melodic scales and harmonies to the releases’ opening, ‘Introduction’, through the creeping and bittersweet melodies and drum-work of ‘Waking Up In The Perseids’, VCMG keeps constantly catchy and gorgeous with his melodic work. Song structure-wise, the songs constantly shift under their own weight, with something bright and beautiful around every corner. The main difference between this release and his debut on Pxl-Bot is the cohesiveness of ‘Focal Point’. Sounding less like a compilation, all the songs intertwine beautifully to form one conjoined soundtrack to the disappearing summer; bittersweet and reflective.

PB052 | Optimus Chad - Robotic Wasteland II: A Story Of Chaos And Rhythm

Optimus Chad is back, and even dirtier than ever. Pxl-Bot proudly bring you your dose of the brutal to aid your festivities. Happy Halloween!

Starting with a healthy portion of sampling and noise, all hell is shortly unleashed within the second track, ‘Feedback Warrior’, a rolling exercise in tension/release with some truly crushing sounds holding the dirt together. ‘Optimus Chad’ has really come immeasurably far since his hard hitting debut; he now hits twice as hard, twice as gritty whilst dousing subtle groove and even more aggression over his work, meanwhile experimenting left right and through the centre’s face with his melodies and drum work.

PB051 | Cooshinator - Self-Titled

Pxl-Bot are proud to present another debut release, this time from the new and shockingly inventive talent that is Cooshinator.

Despite having only begun composition in February of this year, Cooshinator deals a hand of surprisingly strong and memorable tracks, with an almost progressive attention to song structure. Delving in the deep end with the bittersweet spits of ‘Hypocrite’, with its many twists and atmospheric turns, the self-titled EP sets itself up from an early stage to be an unforgettable ride. Featuring a wide range of styles and sounds, from the progressive minimalism of ‘Bohrs Model’ and ‘Tangent’ to the more straight-forward house offerings of ‘Motion’, all songs are then doused with some trance sensibilities to complement their epic nature.

PB050 | Ville Wannabe - Vox Stimuli

Pxl-Bot celebrate their 50th release with a returning appearance from one of the very first artists who ever graced the Pxl-Bot roster, Ville Wannabe.

The experimental sample-based style explored in his previous EP, ‘Future’ still holds a great amount of influence as seen from the opening number, ‘Inhale’, a vocal sample with guitar overdub. However, the new, heavily dance and the gorgeously soft sounds that dominate this release show themselves from the very start of ‘Vox Stimuli’. Ville weaves his melodies with a fragile and beautiful touch, dousing the cascading chords with a playful atmosphere with heaps of character intersected with more up-tempo, sometimes guitar driven, moments throughout to add some variety to the mix.

PB048 | Analog - La Maquinita / Luces De La Ciudad

Having to choose a winner for the Pxl-Bot Singles Competition would have been FAR more difficult if it hadn’t been for this entry.

Bringing his fist-pumping, glitch stomping and in your face aggressive house crunches, Analog stormed the castle with his memorable and almost house-pop –esque A-side followed by his epic and twisting nearly 7 minute B-side. The crunchy melodies and beats are guaranteed to have your ass moving, and the constant shift in syncopation and driving beat will have you on your dancing toes throughout. Fused together with a definite nod towards a dance floor orientated formation, this singles’ full throttle attitude and throat-ripping aggression is bound to have you moving.

NAMELESS, a never before heard musician uploaded a song called DEBUT to 8bitcollective recently. The textures were so rich, so full. One could quite obviously see the potential. Pxl-Bot contacted him and asked for an album to see where it would go.

And oh boy, did it go. This 4 track album is a bone-jarring rip-roar of a musical adventure, taking you through sharp rhythms and rough-as-all-heck synths. Throughout the whole time you listen to this album, your mind gets ripped in half and put back together numerous times as you try to comprehend how dirty this kid can make LSDJ sound.

You should totally download this album and get punched in the face with each of the free mp3s. It's worth it!

PB046 | Roboctopus - The Landscape Has Been Erased

This fantastic release by Roboctopus has been brought to you by the newest member of the Pxl-Bot team, Frostbyte. So we will leave it to him to tell you all about this simply astonishing release, here is what he had to say:

Soft and gentle... intriguing and building, Swelling, massive and thick. These were all the words and phrases that came to my mind as my latest unreleased Roboctopus CD stared to spin in my stereo. Then the kick dropped in, and everything seemed to fall into place in what would become a wonderfully executed album. The snare came after, reassuring me about my previous assumptions. It was as if Roboctopus were right here with me, patting himself ont he back, looking at his music flow past, proud as ever.

PB045 | Mega Flare - The Time For Games Is Over

Following two Ep releases here on Pxl-Bot, we’re extremely proud to bring to you Mega Flare’s debut full-length album.

Mega Flare constructs his usual melodic hooks here with extreme care to assure an almost ethereal experience when listening to this fantastic release. Each and every song here contains a very viable reason why it should be locked into your cortex for months to come. The songs don’t necessarily sound the same, but lock tightly together into the now trademark sound of Mega Flare, which in essence is a beautiful mixture of melody and countermelody straight from the catalogues of the bittersweet.

Having come in bounds from the first release, Frostbyte lays down a collection of danceable and funky LSDJ hits with enough hooks to catch a school with one fell swoop.

PB037 | Optimus Chad - Robotic Wasteland

Dirty, caked in grime and sounding not dissimilar to a mouthful of gravel, Pxl-Bot get their chipthrash on with new talent Optimus Chad.

Full of various samples and deafening noise smashes, “Robotic Wasteland” lands a precise and very loud blow to your brain leading to indefinite dizziness. Crafted using LSDJ and a shiton of anger, Optimus Chad blasts out noise-fuelled song after song, breaking down all forms of acceptable composition techniques in favour of head-butting you right in your face. Songs like “June 1st” and “Kup Is Shaking It!” really highlights the hugely intense and schizophrenic atmosphere of this jaw-dropping release, which is rounded off nicely with a gorgeously disgusting remix of a Wizwars tune followed by noisy drone outro. Definitely not for the faint hearted, but a fantastic addition to the Pxl-Bot catalogue and the chipthrash genre none the less. Optimus Chad is certainly one to watch…

Dylan: "Hey bros!
This is a collection of all the best songs I've written from my first LSDJ until the day of this release. I aimed to blend as much of everything from uplifting melodies to hard/crunchy/bass-heavy drops to evoke all the emotions I've felt since I've been
able to write on such a magnificent machine. I don't consider myself a master of LSDJ in the slightest, but I'm proud of how far I've gone with this and chipmusic in general, much further than I'd anticipated when I started out.
Party hard fellas!

Sounding like a Castlevania soundtrack throughout, this heavily gothic inspired and melodically driven release comes from chiptune newbie “Chickenandrofls”.

Whilst the execution may be amateurish, it only helps to heighten the effectiveness of the outstanding melodies at play here. From the off, melodies and counter-melodies dance in unison like a twin-headed snake, until one the final assaults, “My Asthma”, takes the idea to a new level with some flooringly-good melodic banter. Reeking of a dark atmosphere this eclectic choice still manages to maintain a high level of charm, making ASDF a sign of greater things to come. Rounded off with a remix by one of the Pxl-Bot’s owners, this release features a large variety of must-listen-to-tracks from a new and rather criminally unknown acts.

Expertly composed and brilliantly realised, these eight tracks make one of the most well-rounded and professional sounding releases ever stamped with the Pxl-Bot marking, from sample-led dread in “Machina”’s beginning to the beautiful soft danceable sounds in “Good Dispositions Expected” and out through ambient and spacey atmospheres in “Spays Dreemz”. With his first release in over three years, The MM Project really does return with a huge bang; memorable melodies, intelligent structures and a blast of pure variety whilst still ending up with a cohesive release, “Per Aspera Ad Astra” is sure to be one of those releases that gets far more than a single listen, and with an epic an ending as "Tin Can", you can't really be blamed.

With a definite feel for epic constructions, the songs all slowly snowball to a danceable end before with their slow plodding sense of direction, and far more melodies are utilised in each song than in the first Round.

Epic and so very well thought out, “Mythology” slowly wraps itself around you with a masterful use and combination of dynamics and melody. Covering a large range from soft peaceful pieces to crunchy industrial tinged menace and through acid tinged bass driven heaven, this release really does sound like a journey. As large as its name suggests, and as focused of a release as Mystic Hero has ever had, “Mythology” showcases everything that is good about Mystic Hero’s past work but with so much more, and with an added sub-zero atmosphere. It’d be too easy to make a pun involving the name, so just make your own, whatever you come up with won’t be untrue of this release.

Having etched a name himself for writing insane psychedelic chiptune with enough outside influences to sink a boat, Infirm Individual stays true to his reputation in what may be his most varied and complete-sounding release to date. Starting off with a duo of spacey atmosphere regulating ambient tinged and vocally soft tracks, the lull is quickly disrupted with the epic and sprawling “Exorcism Of Ghouls & Ghosts” which jumps between outright insanity, back to ambience and then schizophrenically through high tempo fist-pumpable melodies and drum cascades.

Differing from salty drum-strengthened waltzes to arps and scale explosive hyper-dance, VCMG can be seen here clearly demonstrating a huge amount of different styles and composition methods. Creeping house music and pumping melancholy anthems tossed in also really secures this release as a pure and simple showcase of why VCMG deserves the attention of the chiptune scene.

Catchy and danceable tunes as the dish of the day here, DJ Eastern Blok manipulates his bass and drums to form a groove-minded coalition to serve as the back ground for his expertly manufactured melodies which jump between assonance and dissonance with an incredible ease to keep you off guard. Body pumping is the best way to describe this cohesively strong release, which whilst following a very similar style throughout, still finds time to digress from its own mould to make use of samples or more downright creepy atmospheres (see “Zombies Value Brains Over Beauty”). Ladle all of this with a healthy dose of trance influence and you have a winning release, and one we are truly proud to bring to our label.

A whole lot darker than his recent work, Battle Lava crafts a dirty sounding dance frenzy in the form of “Screen Hallucinations”, drawing influences from a selection of familiar sounds and giving them new grimy premise. Whilst a departure on the whole from his usual sound, the skill at which he tackles the dirt shows nothing but a higher skill at manipulating his compositions into new ideas and a growing range of styles.

With his third release over here at Pxl-Bot, Kommisar relentlessly keeps up appearances with another shotgun blast of insane melody, catchy hooks and full-throttle pacing on his birthday. Spreading the cheer like a boss.

Spanning six short but eclectic songs, Kommisar’s most recent outing brings even more of the sound fans of his work will have come to love and appreciate. The focus on melody and song structure are as strong as ever, whilst still supplying listeners new sounds to keep them interested and in awe of the versatility of this nothing short of full quality artists. Nothing really highlights these points more than the song “SuperFreak”, with its twisting solos and melodies which are ripe as fuck; it sums up the musical career of this astonishingly good artist remarkably well.

PB019 | Mega Flare - Round One Ep

Melodically inclined with bass lines reeking of acid, Pxl-Bot proudly present Mega Flare’s debut release.

Insanely catchy and etched on a melancholy stone, this strong release harbours so much passion it’s unforgettable. Melodies such as those in “Just Thinkin” are just plain beautiful, the bass line on the opener “Darkside” is inspiring, and throughout the entire release there are enough moments to fully paint the name Mega Flare into your mind. Sounding like the soundtrack for a futuristic steam punk tragedy, Round One’s incredibly dance-minded shenanigans are sure to leave you open-jawed with the aid of the incredibly strong climax in the form of “Awake”. One of the strongest debuts around, this is the type of release that makes our policy of focusing on new talent heavily justified.
