The Chip Music Thread

I know there are a few people here who like a good chip tune, so I thought it might be an idea to collect up all the best examples of chip music, be they 100% 'real' tunes direct from hardware or chippy-influenced stuff.

Anyway, I was alerted to this bunch of free compilations via Twitter:

And here's a damn good mix of chip tunes in a very danceable style by Henry Homesweet:

Any more chip-related stuff would be very much appreciated.

It's something I've been wanting to get 'into' for a while but seem to never know where to start. I do need to trawl through this though:

One thing I do like, which makes me sad that he's only done a few tracks, one album (4 of the 8 tracks are remixes) is this:

He uses the Spectrum, which I'm not sure many people do but I LOVE the sound. Makes me all teary and nostalgic.

I can imagine it might be hard to know where to start. It's a surprisingly broad genre and there's plenty of music about, of varying quality. What sort of thing would you want to hear: old game tunes, Gameboy dance music? Probably just best to dive in and hope for the best :)

It sounds like a Spectrum to me, with some extra bits going on. The Speccy sound is big on the Russian demo scene.

You'll either totally love or really hate this, but you might like a bit of Amigacore:

Not everyone's cup of tea.

Gavin did the theme music for GameHack this year as well :)
