This very special holiday release from 8bitpeoples features an allstar cross-platform lineup that is sure to make yours a truly chippy christmas indeed. Brought together from all corners of the globe, these 8 amazing tunes were composed by 8 dedicated chiptune maniacs on 8 different videogame consoles and homecomputers! Featuring the sounds of Yerzmyey on the Spectrum, Nullsleep on the NES, Vim on the VIC20, Paul Slocum on the Atari 2600, Bit Shifter on the GameBoy, Goto80 on the C64, Dma-Sc on the Atari ST, and Hally on the X68000, there is only one way to celebrate the holidays right this year, and this is it.
It started as a joke but in the end it just seemed too ridiculously appropriate, and here it is. Six very different takes on the classic theme ranging from Mesu Kasumai's detroit electro throwdown, Sabastian Boaz's maniacal casio n' bass frenzy and Twilight Electric's honest and innocent synthpop mix, to Nullsleep's pure nintendo love, Ten and Tracer's hauntingly melancholic surprise and Yuppster's pumping SID attack, it is undoubtedly an essential collection.
Not truly the first release by 8bitpeoples, but given the first catalogue # as it was a compilation featuring tracks by all of the 8bitpeoples. Very limited copies of this cd were distributed as promo material. Track listing and further information about this release are unavailable.
