The Dark Side of the Moon - The 8-bit Album

38 years ago today Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon was released in the UK, and Pterodactyl Squad are pleased to mark this date with our 30th release, The Dark Side of the Moon - The 8-bit Album!

After the success of Weezer - The 8-bit Album in 2009, the Squad turned our attention to Pink Floyd and one of rock music's all-time great LPs, assembling an all-star cast of chiptune talent to create a VGM-inspired tribute to 1973's, The Dark Side of the Moon. All 9 tracks have been filtered through an 8-bit lens, and while each artist brings a different sound and creative angle to each track, the album flows seamlessly together, just like the original.

"Although attempted numerous times before, Pterodactyl Squad have finally done the original album justice with the definitive 8-bit interpretation of Pink Floyd's progressive rock classic. Produced as an 8-bit mirror of the original, the music on this release was created using sounds from various old games consoles including the Sega Mega Drive and Nintendo Game Boy."
