Jam-packed full of tight, crunchy, guitar-driven chiptunes, Test Subject is an intense, action-adventure romp. From the hard-rocking, fast-paced title track to the frivolous Honeydew and the rhyme-heavy No Reason, Test Subject covers a range of musical bases. You'll find guest contributions aplenty, with appearances from Shawn Phase, Norrin_Radd and MC Fen, yet each track features the trademark chiptune sound which Bit_Rat has truly made his own.

Noisewaves fuse the tones of the 2A03 with roaring post-rock ambience to a create a sound that's absorbing and effortless. On this, their self-titled debut EP, you'll find five introspective yet uplifting instrumentals, where chiptune and guitar mesh to create something extraordinary.

Grabbing patches of sound from various Atari 2600 carts and circuit bent toys, Weave of K. crafts soundtracks to outer space trips. The multiple changes and moods within his music represent a person with a spry mind and a short attention span, but the true beauty of Weave of K. is revealed when you take a deeper look at the lush textures and sounds within.

Emanon is the faux soundtrack to a futuristic RPG racing game that would likely have been played in the 90s in one of those fancy-looking arcade racing booths. Using this concept as a base, lpower took some of his favourite samples from various consoles and synths and used them to craft the music which would play during the racing levels and cut scenes. Typically upbeat, melodic and intelligent, Emanon is a rich exploration of sounds from years gone by.

The prolific NESMETAL returns with his 4th release on Pterodactyl Squad, this his most dark and brooding work to date - Void. Inspired by the release of the retro-styled Mega Man 9 one year ago, NESMETAL decided to go back to basics, using simpler textures and rhythms to take his sound in a new direction. But fear not, the heavy metal themes and complex song structures still remain, making this release another truly interesting and original chapter in the tale of NESMETAL.

Do you remember that dream you had, where the sound chips from the beloved games consoles of your youth all got together and formed a Weezer tribute band? Yeah? No? OK. That dream is about to come true whether you had it or not. The songs on this compilation have mostly been created using original videogame hardware running home-brew software, and vary radically in style, from minimal 'one man and his Game Boy' compositions to 8-bit inspired full band performances.

Try To Smile At Least Once A Day is a selection of tracks from Alterior's previously released album, No Reason To Be Ashamed. The music found on this EP is primarily inspired by the genres of IDM and breakcore, but also draws influence from the harmonies and melodiousness of Super Nintendo-era roleplaying games. There is also the addition of counter-tenor vocals, as well as voice samples, all combining to create 5 tracks which feature a truly unique blend of musical ideas.

Like a tub of Neapolitan ice cream, this 3-way split presents three different artists with three different styles, all delicious on their own, but even better when combined. First is arcadecoma. with his charming bleeps and a fuzzy guitar, sandwiched in the middle is L'homme Manete's smooth, beat-driven electro-chiptunes, and seal of quality rounds it all off with his dizzyingly inventive ideas and sounds. There's something here for everyone, so dig in! Quick, before it melts!

"Triple Screen is what a 3-screen handheld gaming system would sound like. This system uses the 320-bit Z-sound chip, which doesn't really exist in real life. I just made that up, because Triple Screen is mostly a huge tribute to the many styles, sounds, cultures, and moods of music found in video games. It is my way of saying "arigato gozaimasu" to all of the awesome Japanese composers that made our childhoods so awesome with such diverse, inspiring soundtracks. They are the...

The self-titled release (AKA "the pink album") from Canadian Game Boy artist, lutin is the first of Pterodactyl Squad's Mega Twerp re-releases. lutin says "This record was written using a single Nanoloop 1.3 cartridge and an old Nintendo DMG Game Boy. I've included an additional 2 bonus tracks on this re-release: bourgeois murk and power down. Both tracks were written around the same time as the rest of the album, so I thought it was fitting that they be included on the release....

Trippy H is a mysterious thing, it makes one Game Boy bleep and another Game Boy sing. This wee EP is intended as a celebration of the inherent limitations of the hidden mini music sequencer of the Game Boy Camera cartridge. It was recorded over two days using two cameras, and the simple melodies were inspired by the hypnotically cyclical soundtracks to early cassette-based computer games. Bop along wearing your best DJ face for maximum enjoyment!

Skip's first release with Pterodactyl Squad is Ecospheric Escape, a selection of 7 scientifically musical tunes, all inspired by a childhood playing video games in front of the TV screen. Otherworldly and abstract, yet always precise and upbeat, synthy melodies run over speedy drum beats, creating an alien sound which is somehow quite familiar.

Hot Dog City is another in-progress game from Ray Fix and Johnathan Godbolt which unfortunately met with the same fate as Zombie Birthday Cake. However, the soundtrack written by NESMETAL was too good to remain unheard, so here it is! Featuring a hot dog as the main character, the game was to be a fun, old-school style sidescroller, and much musical inspiration was taken from Ristar, Popful Mail and especially Sonic the Hedgehog. "The bass lines in the old Sonic soundtracks have always...

Utilising the 80s technology of the Nintendo Entertainment System SLiVeR delivers 8 tracks worthy of stellar classification. All 5 channels of the 2A03 are perfectly synchronised in steady rhythm, emitting shimmering sounds and cosmic melodies infused with feeling. All MP3 tracks were recorded using real NES hardware, and there's the option to download in NSF form. Yes, this is NES music.

"Zombie Birthday Cake actually started off as a funny thought between two guys (Ray Fix and Johnathan Godbolt) who wanted to make an "old school" sidescrolling action game about zombies - think Resident Evil mixed with the original Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden series. We wanted it to be pretty violent, as action packed as a 2D title could be, and have our friends in it as both main and supporting characters. Sadly though, a year and a half into production, the game went on...

The EP you are about to listen to is the retrospective soundtrack to the amazing true story of three tree-climbing friends and their adventures at the dawn of handheld gaming. It all started when no-one could afford the all-new Nintendo Game Boy - they were kids and their combined powers and paper round salaries would not allow it, meaning they would have to wait for Christmas or a birthday. Sie cut the Game Boy from his mum's Argos catalogue (not actual size) and glued it to the back of some...

Swedish chiptune artist Super Multifaros creates a fine concoction of big beats and arpeggios on his Compeat EP. Smooth sounds of old school video games are mixed with catchy, chirpy melodies, guaranteed to have you feeling fine in minutes. Containing healthy amounts of bleep and glitch, this is a well-needed does of hardcore bitpop.
