Kool Skull - STRUCTURE B

I like melodies. Catchy lines, structured harmonies, and distinct lead instruments make up most of this site's library. This track has none of that; it's a thrash, a jam, made on a sample-based tracker that lends itself to fast, loud, aggressive and abrasive music. Unlike so many circuit-benders or self-proclaimed "noise musicians", Kool Skull has discernable rhythms, musical structure, and a sound that is not so overbearing as to be distracting. It's definitely a standout from the rest of the music I pick, but it represents a large segment of the population that identifies with the chiptune scene, and a very large, perhaps even majority, of the live acts out there. Seriously, if you go to a chiptune show, you can expect a lot of noise, then a lot of typical DJ-electro-trance-whatever, followed by anything you might see here on a daily basis. Whoops!
