Zan-Zan-Zawa-Veia - Evil Twin

This song accomplishes a few of the things I was hoping to do in today's post. The first, and most obvious goal, was to post a friggin' chiptune that'll make you say "yeah". Mission accomplished there. The second was to showcase an awesome compilation that just went down on called "Something Different". It's an awesome mashup of sixteen different artists and genres, some of them pretty self-explanatory (Easy Listening, Ambient, Bitpop), some of them familiar though not in the context of chiptunes (Neoclassical, Bluegrass, Industrial Waltz), and some of them just plain weird (Post-Orangejuice Rehabilitation [which is a joke most people won't get], Environmental Sound Collapse [the name of the artist who made the song actually, indicative of the fact that he is genre-defining], and of course Industrial Afrobeat Showtunes).

This song is just that. Industrial Afrobeat Showtunes. If you ever wondered what that was, then... Well I don't know what to tell you. How did you come up with that?? The rest of us, however, have something to learn from this. Though, I'm not completely sure what. But it's valuable and once-in-a-lifetime. So enjoy today's tune!

  1. i love this site. just what I need to start my day (or finish it off). This is a pretty dope track. Pretty mellow iwth some interesting percussion. I don't know much about 8bit music, but i'm a fan.

    I'm back daily now for my fix of new stuff, plus I'm still making my way through all the content on 8bc. I had no idea there was a movement this massive RE: 8 bit music.
