New Quarta330 Live Set

Quarta330 is a Japanese gameboy composer, who sticks out with his quirky and slow beats in hiphop/dub/step style (as mentioned earlier). He’s also one of the few chip artists that operates outside the “scene” – with appearances on Hyperdub and even Warp. So his music is not always easy to find free for download, which makes this live-set from Berlin even more interesting. It includes several songs that are new to me, and I like the development from melancholic melodies and quantised grooves towards a more skweee-ish playfulness. Maybe chip music has a future after all?!

And then a random piece of C64 pixel art by skurwy from last week (with good music!)
