Bittersweet feelings are evoked by the unexpected mixture of sampled videogames and bleeps and clicks generated from chopped and processed urban field recordings. In a sense this was my requiem for the arcades, slowly dying out with the advent of "better" home videogame consoles. Nursery music for Street Fighter player's children's children.
Bring it back to '99 with this early 8BP release.I still enjoy some of these cuts. Most are pretty melodic, but a bit more tweaked out than my later stuff. It's mostly made with my now sold MC303 - some are recorded live, others touched up with the computer.

The first of my releases for 8bitpeoples, Wooden Polyurethane Papers is a funny and sometimes ludicrous (as per the title) mix of understated and, more often, over the top tunes. From the ridiculous hummed bassline of Bafter the Attle to the flock of chirping waveforms in Silicon Leaves, this is certainly the strange beginning to an even stranger story.
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.
