What do you listen to when you want to get your groove on?

Funk, soul, bleeps, latin, whatever…

What's the worst pop song/trend you can think of? Firefly comes to mind for me.

I hate faux, "8bit chiptune", music. These types of songs try to take advantage of people's nostalgia for old video game music. The people who makes this stuff think that they don't need to put in any effort if it's just beeps and boops. What they're either forgetting or ignoring is that that composers put in extra effort to make the most out of narrow technical limitations. This stuff not only doesn't even stay within the boundaries of those technical limitations, but they don't so much as make an effort to be listenable.

I think this is an extremely important point. I remember reading articles about composers for the original nintendo and how they would have to push the chip to the absolute limit, and find all sorts of hack to get the sounds that they needed. I also used to own a nanoloop and working within the limitations of that could be quite challenging.

I listened to the second link in your post (pasted below for reference) and while some of the harmonies and melodies seemed to be pretty representative of 8 bit video game styles, the first thing I heard was a modulating acid bassline that would never have been possible on an 8 bit chip.

Thanks for the response. Yu-No came out in 1996 and the pc98 itself came out in 1982, before even the Famicom, and used the Yamaha YM2608 chip. I know very little about sound engineering, but here's the Wikipedia page for it.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamaha_YM2608
I'm pretty sure that the system is considered 16/32 bit. Anyway, it still shows the massive difference in effort between what people produced back then and modern, "retro", music, which also often doesn't fit 8-bit parameters. The third link, which was for the pc-88, is probably closer to mark when it comes to comparable technical limitations.

There is still good "chiptune" music being made (even though it's not actually chiptune anymore) But I definitely agree on what you're saying though.

some semi-recent albums that I think are actually really good:
she - coloris
starscream - future, and it doesn't work
anamanaguchi - dawn metropolis
sabrepulse - chipbreak wars
4mat - decades

Stop what you are doing and go learn some Hawaiian Slack Key guitar. It is easy to get started with, sounds good, and fun to play. On top of that, it has a cool history and is genuinely a "music of the people" meaning that it has not been tainted by commercial interest.

This album was dope.

Needs a more detailed review though. Not my soup dish though, so who feels lucky to dabble these hot waters and noodle up a review of these coffeehouse jams? (excluding that last track lol, that's more something for like satanic starbucks or something, obviously with goats.)
