Been posting so much pop lately, was so amazing to hear this. Back to the 2k14 vibes!
You probably will have heard of 813 if you are a Genre Confused regular, at one point, last year maybe, I was obsessed with chiptune music and kept posting about him. What I like about 813 is his really cool sound effects he uses within tracks that make them so different. You should really check out all his music on his SC, it is so sick! He also used to be a fireman, which is cool too. Em
We are big fans of Kero Kero Bonito here on Genre Confused. We are also big fans of producer and Canadian cool guy Ryan Hemsworth and his Secret Songs project. Basically secret songs from artists/producers that you may not know and will definitely love.
KKB have contributed a new track called ‘Flamingo’ to this shh#ffb6c1 compilation. Thats code for a certain kind of pink. Like a Flamingo. In true KKB style its a cute combination of hand claps, N64 flute melodies and Sarah’s rap. For my money, one of their catchiest choruses yet. You’ll have ‘Black, white, green or blue – show off your natural hue’ stuck in your head for days. Get ready for the strange looks.
Also free download. Everyone loves something for nothing.
Genre confused SOPHIE has been all over the place recently, dropping a new single called ‘Lemonade’ as well as forming a PC Music supergroup with label founder A. G. Cook called QT whose first single is coming soon on XL. This is an older SOPHIE track which I prefer to Lemonade. If you’ve not heard this type of thing before you might be confused. Don’t be alarmed though. Its supposed to sound like that. Just give in to the bubble gum madness safe in the knowledge that, despite the branding, SOPHIE is actually a man. Surprise!
So, I have heard a lot of Basenji’s music in mixes before but today I listened to individual tracks for the first time. This one is amazing, loving the dog barks in it too, just for a bit of fun. I also noticed that he has been signed to Future Classic and an EP is coming later in the year. I really like the buildup and break down, it is genius. Em
This is a great chiptune/pop/rock track. I absolutely love it! It is so feel good. Anamanaguchi is an American chiptune rock band from New York City, that “makes loud, fast music with a hacked NES from 1985”. This is definitely different, and you should definitely play it. Honest. Em
I know we are not a new music blog, but I couldn’t resist. Soooo Foster The People have this new album called ‘Supermodel’ with this amazing track called ‘Best Friend’ on it. However I am a fan of the odd remix and Wave Racer always does it for me. This is no exception. Smooth chiptune/trap bliss. Em
