Selection of my favourite chiptune music published by an independent online label 8bitpeoples. I intentionaly selected diverse styles of chiptune songs so people who never heard this kind of music could hear different approaches to this insanely retro way of sound making.
All songs on this compilation are published by 8bitpeoples and are free for you to download at their site www.8bitpeoples.com. You can download much, much more so I definetly recommend visiting and supporting this extraordinary stubborn label.
My next 8 bit compilation will be dedicated to the true sound of Commodore 64, Game Boy and Tetris.

INFO ON CHIPTUNE MUSIC:
Chiptune, or chip music, or micromusic is music written in sound formats where all the sounds are synthesized in realtime by a computer or video game console sound chip, instead of using sample-based synthesis. The "golden age" of
chiptunes was the mid 1980s to early 1990s, when such sound chips were the most common method for creating music on computers. The restrictions
posed by the medium forced composers to become very creative when developing their own "electronic sounds". This is due to the early computer sound
chips having only simple tone and noise generators imposing limitations on the complexity of the sound.
The resultant chiptunes sometimes seem "harsh" or "squeaky" to the unaccustomed listener. Chiptunes are closely related to video game music. The term has also been recently applied to more recent compositions that attempt to recreate the chiptune sound, albeit with more complex technology.
