I don’t really care about August, to be honest with you. I like the way this one turned out though! The Lego Game Boy is for you. So soak it in, and quickly try to do everything you pushed aside this summer. June and July just went by all too quickly!


[4CR006] Chip Champion – Sex With Robots by PixlCrushr
July 11, 2008, 10:45 pm
Filed under: Releases | Tags: ,

“This is the third official release from Chip Champion.  Hope you enjoy!  In the future we may have the technology to travel through space or time, we might even have flying cars… but the one thing everybody really wants is to have sex with robots.  And who knows… maybe we will live to see such a wonderful future <3 <3 <3”

Chip Champion made all of the following tracks with FamiTracker. The music style varies and has a lot of originality. It gets to the point where we can’t really describe it, but when listening to it, you can almost imagine that it is an OST for a NES game. It stays true to the genre, that’s for sure. Bottom line, Chip Champion’s “Sex With Robots” is a fun release with a lot to offer.

[4CR005] PixlCrushr – Famis for the Whole Family! by PixlCrushr
July 2, 2008, 12:20 am
Filed under: Releases | Tags: ,

It’s a new EP from PixlCrushr, but not the one people were expecting. Famis for the Whole Family! is PixlCrushr’s attempt at an all NES release, using FamiTracker for every song on it. This EP is 99% FamiTracker. The other 1%? Only some tool assisted ambiance during a small portion of one song. The EP was made mostly at the end of March, directly after the self titled album was completed, and can be explained as 2007 release Flamethrower‘s sequel. The release can also be explained as the cycle of a caffeine rush. Mellow at first, a quick burst of energy, and then the process of mellowing out again. This small release packs a lot of melodies, mellowed out beats, and just the right amount of noise and bass fueled energy from the track Pixel Army.

1. Launch Day pt. II
2. B is Run
3. Pixel Army
4. It’s A Pixly Pixl World
5. Hexadecimal Endings

[4CR004] Scik! – Sloth Face Exploder by PixlCrushr
May 20, 2008, 10:12 pm
Filed under: Releases | Tags: ,

Today marks a brand new release for newcomer to the label, Scik!. He makes wonderful music that brilliantly mixes chiptune and breakcore. Yes, chiptune/breakcore does make the most of us instantly think of Sabrepulse (before he picked up the Game Boy) and Saskrotch, but Scik! is known to, at times, even bring unique pop culture samples into the mix. Not just that, but he does indeed use LSDJ as an instrument in these songs, which is not commonly seen in the chip/breakcore genre. With quality melodies and sick breakcore percussions, Scik! brings another quality EP to 4CR. Enjoy!

1. Wombat Lightning
2. Skittles and Toothpicks
3. King Hippo Doomsday
4. Party Party A Go Go
5. The Chip Struggle

Chip Champion has arrived to 4 Channel Records! He makes Famitracker music. It’s real nice. Take a look at his MySpace for samples of his music: http://www.myspace.com/gogochipchampion. Check out his latest release too, it’s called Sloppy Seconds. We may be re-releasing it because it’s self released. It’s good stuff!
