Half Hour of Power playlist EP12, 2018/05/09

Tonight was the first ever Yerz Night (yes, there will be more)!  All tracks are by my favourite chiptune artist Yerzmyey, a talented and innovative dude who has been rocking beeps since 1989, has started two chiptune bands (AY Riders and YM Digital) and has played live at major chiptune events in Japan and the US!

  1. Yerzmyey – Where is Love? (from album Ye Olde Square)
  2. Yerzmyey – Break Space (from album ZX 81)
  3. Yerzmyey – Arcane Zone (from album RetroBeat)
  4. Yerzmyey – XL Dance (from album XL Digital)
  5. Yerzmyey – Time Machine II (from album aTTraction)
  6. Yerzmyey – Trackers Forever! (from album Oldschool MODe)
  7. Yerzmyey – 5th Channel (from album Interphase)
  8. Yerzmyey – Haunted Mansion (from album Brutal and Aggressive)
  9. Yerzmyey – Jigoku no sanba (from album Microsongs – sadly faded out before end!)

On this show, I featured Powderpaint’s newly released single “For Parts”! I really love Shonalika’s voice, as with their first single “This Being”. Her voice is so powerful, to me, it is “penetrating” in that I feel the lyrics and the melody, and I can relate to the song. Let us not forget the beautiful melody that goes with this voice. This band has probably one of the best synth players and composers in the world — kudos to James! Sorry, doing reviews is not really my strength. I just expressed here what I feel deep down. The tracks I play on my show are tracks I love. I would never play anything I don’t like on this show… and when the track makes it to this show, expect a lot of attention and promoting from me! 🙂 I just want to help as best as I can to get the artists recognized. Thank you again, James and Shonalika, for letting me share your beautiful music to the Internet! Please show your support to Powderpaint, James and Shonalika by visiting their Bandcamp site at powderpaint.bandcamp.com and by downloading their singles. James told me you can download them for free (just put “0” in the price field) OR you can be like me — donate/purchase the digital music if you really like the artists to help them make more beautiful music! 🙂

Unfortunately, I made some boo-boos during the live show. I mentioned the wrong Mastodon instances for Powderpaint and James’ accounts 🙁 I got Shonalika’s right though. So Powderpaint’s Mastodon profile is @powderpaint@glitch.social and James’ is @envgen@mastodon.social. Shonalika’s is @shonalika@mastodon.art. Mastodon is a decentralized social media NOT owned by one all-powerful corporation and so expect all different kinds of instances within this collective system (called “Fediverse”). I have no issues with it. They are of course on Twitter as well — @powderpaintband, @EnvGen & @ShonalikaTilak. I am very sure they will be delighted if you follow their accounts both on Mastodon and Twitter!

Half Hour of Power playlist EP11, 2018/05/02

I was short of time and a little lazy this week, so most of tonight’s show was one epic 22 minute track from Stig’s amazing album Velocity!  The album only has two tracks, and the other one goes for even longer at 27 minutes!  If you liked what you heard tonight, please consider buying the album to complete the experience.

  1. Stig – Velocity, part one
  2. Mister Beep – Slowing Down the Chaos
  3. Irrlicht Project – Meta-ls

Half Hour of Power playlist EP10, 2018/04/25

Tonight’s first track was powerfully low-fi 1-bit ZX Spectrum music, to make up for the heresy of last week’s analogue instruments!  The second half of the show features two consecutive tracks from Disasterpeace’s concept album Level, which is “the narrative of an uphill battle, increasingly difficult and complex as it progresses, told through the sounds of the 8-bit electronic medium”.  If you liked levels 3 and 4, buy the album to enjoy the full eight level journey!

  1. Irrlicht Project – endciety
  2. MIND BODY ALPHA – Ballad of the Undead Gypsy (from 1-bit Wizards album The Journey Begins)
  3. Graustrom – Mindcruising
  4. Yerzmyey – Purple Galaxy (from album aTTraction)
  5. Disasterpeace – Three
  6. Disasterpeace – Four
  7. cTrix – DX Heaven
