PB029 | FuturNari - Another Unlikely Hero II

The second of our birthday-based joy-spreading releases is this time coming from the talents of the brilliant FuturNari.

Beautifully crafted songs with melodies as equally captivating, FuturNari delivers another slice of genuine chiptune gold through his sequel to the previously mind-altering-ly good release ‘Another Unlikely Hero’. Having come a huge amount of distance in terms of compositional skill since then, this time round FuturNari delivers a focused sucker punch in the form of five meticulously pieced together works.

PB028 | VCMG - SemiPicturesque

Dripping with variety, VCMG’s newest offering to the chiptune world shouts “range” throughout its duration.

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. Individually mastering all of the styles he tackles, this release focuses on creativity and the expansion of style over ‘playing it safe’, and the results speak for themselves through the intricate melodies and ample differences in atmosphere.

PB026 | The Hamlet - The Forge

Short but so incredibly sweet, Pxl-Bot are incredibly happy to bring you the debut release from The Hamlet.

Melodically driven with an extensive use of harmonics to tame the listener, The Hamlet creates structurally simple yet very powerful songs, opting for a focus on melody to draw the listener in. As if telling a story, the tracks on this release run together to form an inner monologue of a narrative, inflaming the imagination and creating landscapes through the expert use of differing instrumentation. The choosing of specific timbre has been dealt with down to a tee, making each track stand out though both atmosphere and expression, causing this to be one hell of an impressive debut EP and one which we are incredibly proud to have unearthed for you.

PB024 | DJ Eastern Blok - Ninjas Are Everywhere EP

Bringing you our second Canadian in a row, Pxl-Bot proudly present to you, DJ Eastern Blok.

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.

PB023 | Battle Lava - Screen Hallucinations

Pxl-Bot are incredibly excited to be bringing you a release from the burningly good Candaian artist, Battle Lava.

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.

PB022 | Holy Konni - Ambient Tracks And Chiptune Shit

Konni: “This album is basically a mixtape of different stuff I made a year ago, There’s some ambient and some chipmusic shit as well, so here you go. Yeah, this isn't really anything serious, but I still wanted to share it!
If you wanna hear good Holy Konni, go to here. THANKS AND PROINK!”

Doing exactly what it says on the tin, this mixtape of re-worked, old and unreleased tracks manages to showcase precisely why Holy Konni’s focused releases spurt such a vast range of influences and sounds, from the beautiful ambient soundscape tracks to the danceable and cute chip, all of this is purely priceless and far from “chipmusic shit”.

PB020 | Kommisar - Colibri

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.
