Daft Punk – Da Chip // An 8-Bit Cover Album
Are you a Daft Punk fan? Are you a nerdy 8-bit // Chiptune fan, or maybe a combination of the two? Well we have you covered. A bunch of 8-bit // Chiptune producers got together to put out this pretty bad ass compilation. I’ve been a fan of the 8-bit sound for sometime now and I don’t think I would have the same dance music taste if it wasn’t for old school vintage games from Sega to Nintendo.
Kristian Wilson of Nintendo, Inc said it best. “Computer games don’t affect kids; I mean if Pac-Man affected us as kids, we’d all be running around in darkened rooms, munching magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic music.” – 1989
I’ll give you a few of my favorite tunes from the album as well as a bonus song. You can clearly hear these were done with precision, skill and love for the DP. Let us know what you think. I think it would be totally cool if Daft Punk did something like this during the vintage video game scenes in the new movie, or at least something like this a little special for the credits.
