Popsicle Theory is a criminally underrated chiptune artist from the Netherlands who has, since 2006, consistently produced emotionally engaging dance music often with just a single LSDJ cart. Her newest release, 5 song EP entitled "Kaleidoscope" is exactly that. Possibly her best work to date these songs are adorable, punchy and fun. Popsicle Theory is one of those artists that actually makes you want to buy a Little Sound DJ. FFO: Chipzel, Polly Pocket and Breakbeat Heartbeat.

It's hard to argue that chibi-tech isn't the best in chiptune. Consistently one of the most innovative and exciting artists in the retro hardware game. "Crema Binaria" is an inspiring example of 8bit with kawaii bass fundamentals. Finding solace in a cozy cafe while the anxiety ridden future outside moves twice as fast. Along side this excellent little 2 track EP she has recently released a collection of her early FamiTracker projects spanning (2007-2009). Favourite track "くものおと". FFO: Anamanaguchi, Ujico*/Snails House and Slime Girls. Find their music in the links below! chibitech.bandcamp.com/album/crema-binariasoundcloud.com/chibi-tech
"I miss my CPU" is a collaborative effort between 养鸡 aka Yangji and GG Lobster, based out of Hangzhou and Beijing respectively. A mix of breakcore, digital hardcore and early era synth-punk.
