New Pterodactyl Squad release from Betamod's Player Two

Finally, Player Two joins the Squad! Check out his new 6-track EP, Junior Varsity.

PTE047 release page

"This EP represents the fulfilment of a plan a long time in the making. The original idea for Pterodactyl Squad was actually born from conversations between Player Two and Joe Allen after the collapse of the Mega Twerp netlabel. Yet, for a number of reasons, Player Two never made a release with the Squad, until now.

Slaving away in his personal studio with NES samples and using the smarts gained from countless nights of DJing in the clubs of St. Louis (as well as a healthy dose of inspiration from Daft Punk), Player Two is plugged into your system and ready to jam some house."

Junior Varsity will be up on our Bandcamp page very soon, and for more 8-bit music make sure to check out Player Two's very own netlabel, Betamod.

Brand new self-titled EP from Please Lose Battle

We left it a while between releases this time, but we're back with a bang to kick off 2014! We've got the debut release from Please Lose Battle, a French duo who write music for the NES sound chip, and they add bass and drums when they play live. Check out a video of them in action here, and then check out the EP.

PTE046 release page

"This debut EP from Please Lose Battle is a tribute to childhood gaming and the emotions we experienced back then: distraction, frustration, joy, impatience...

Everything here was made using FamiTracker with 2A03 + N163 or VRC6 (there is no DPCM channel, except for the effects at the end of the final track). The goal was to explore the possibilities and restrictions of a unique tool, in turn challenging musical creativity and songwriting."

HarleyLikesMusic brings his sounds to the Squad

Pterodactyl Squad are very proud to announce our first release by a Sheffield dude: it's HarleyLikesMusic with the hard-hitting The Sixth Extinction. There's even some involvement from dinosaurs on this release - rad!

PTE045 release page

"HarleyLikesMusic's debut on Pterodactyl Squad is an epic concept album: the soundtrack to various threats (zombies, aliens and dinosaurs) to the earth's human population. Using his Nintendo DS Harley creates industrial synth sounds and sets them to bouncy rhythms, but on The Sixth Extinction he gives his music a decidedly dark twist.

This guy is the world's premier KORG DS-10 musician for a reason - now you can find out why."

You can also hear Harley explain the concept behind this release over at his SoundCloud page.
