With roots in both catchy and extreme music plus an unhealthy obsession with errors and variation, Goto80 delivers eclectic music based on 8-bit technology. During 15 years he has released hundreds of songs on vinyl, CD’s, cassettes and floppy disks but also for movies, games and art projects. Starting in the demoscene, he gained recognition outside of geek culture in 2001 with the Papaya EP. He’s on a never ending mission to look beyond the video game romantics and explore genres such as ambient, breakcore, country, schlager and jazz, although Goto80 is often recognized for the melodic pop songs. In 2007 he played 40 shows and made 20 releases including the CD-album Made On Internet. More info can be found at http://www.goto80.com/promo

Came across this tremedous 8bit site the other day. Here you will find a veriety of new fresh bitpop tunes. This how the 8bitpeople describe themselves and their mission:
The 8bitpeoples first came together in 1999 as a collective of artists sharing a common love for classic videogames and an approach to music which reflected this obsession. Our primary interests were to provide quality music for free and most importantly to have fun. In the years since, we have grown in rank and expanded our goals.
We continue to provide the vast majority of all our releases for free, including printable covers and inserts so that anyone with the desire to can “manufacture” physical copies of our albums. Furthermore, limited runs of most of our releases are available, offering superior sound quality to the mp3 releases and occasionally bonus tunes.
In addition to our continuing devotion to music, we now have a research & development division dedicated to the creation of software, construction of hardware, and dissemination of documentation related to our cause. Our love for the audio/visual aesthetics of early videogame consoles and homecomputers continues to provide us with the drive to push the medium to its very limits, and then see just how much further we can go after that … you know, just for fun.

Rumors has it that japanese chiptune popstars YMCK will unleash some new blippy efforts this month and they are on a European tour. YMCK is the 8bit pop unit formed by 3 persons.The most prominent feature of the band is the 8bit sound that reminds people old game consoles, which attracts the enthusiastic support from wide range of generations.
The 1st album “Family music” released in 2004 made a big hit and made their popularity unassailable.
Their unique style of live performances using 8bit pixel animation is also highly acclaimed.
Their activities are not limited in Japan but also made successes in performing at international music festivals around the world: in Sweden, New York, Thailand, Taiwan and South Korea, and CDs are released in United States, Thailand, and South Korea. Besides those things above, YMCK does a wide range of activities, such as remix works, video game sound tracks, DJ performances, development of 8bit sound plug-in software etc.
Listen to samples of YMCK’s brand of 8-bit, sugarsweet vocal music here while waiting patiently for a reputable importer to carry the dot-pin set.
And while you are in Japan why not take a tour at the Nintendo Museum, good fun:
