8-bit ELO tribute

There's a lot going on at Squad HQ right now, and this Saturday we're going to be releasing a tribute we've been working on for a while now - this one is an 8-bit tribute to Electric Light Orchestra, AKA ELO! It will feature chiptune covers from a few long-time Squad members alongside a couple of newcomers and rad artwork from David Mauro. And after the success of the listening party for Ramyn King's Teal Album back in July, jmr will be hosting another one for the ELO tribute this Saturday on Arecibo Radio (October 25th, 17:00 EDT)! More info can be found on the Facebook event page.

And we've already mentioned the Please Lose Battle show we're putting on in Sheffield on November 15th, but the day before Joe will also be travelling to Edinburgh to play a Pterodactyl Squad DJ set at Please Lose Battle's Edinburgh date (FB event page). The lineup for that one, like the Sheffield show, is pretty special so make sure to come down if you're in the area!

Sheffield chiptune show

So not only do we have possibly our best run of releases ever planned for the next month or so, we're also putting on a chiptune show in Sheffield as part of Please Lose Battle's UK tour. Performing alongside these French wonders will be Comptroller, HarleyLikesMusic and Sky Pope, so if you're in the north of England come and party with us - both Joe and Ross will be there!

And look out for Please Lose Battle's brand new EP dropping just before the tour starts.

Blazing Force from lpower!

We've teamed up once again with Telefuture to bring you something brand new from lpower - this time it's a slow-burning faux soundtrack using plenty of spacey sounds from the YM2612 (Sega Mega Drive/Genesis FM chip).

""You wake up after some time having been asleep, drugged, or unconscious. Your ship, Blazing Force, has been damaged through the battle."

Drawing from the distinct genre of shmups in both sound and aesthetic, lpower has created a work that balances the euphoria of space with its unavoidable sense of desolation. Based around samples from the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, Blazing Force sounds smooth and clinical like only the YM2612 can. There's an underlying uneasiness to all this though - not surprising when you remember you're all alone in space..."

And if you're wondering why we've skipped catalogue number PTE050, we're saving it for a special tribute compilation we've been working on for a while now. More info on that and lpower's Abinox III will be coming shortly.
