Better, Lost

"Better, Lost" is the new full length release from Ireland's Breakbeat Heartbeat. 9 luminescent tracks built from acoustic guitar, authentic chip synths, amen breaks and chopped up vocals. These elements are never juxtaposed against each other the way you might expect but they are instead sewn together in a strikingly succinct manner.

Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope

Popsicle Theory is a criminally underrated chiptune artist from the Netherlands who has, since 2006, consistently produced emotionally engaging dance music often with just a single LSDJ cart. Her newest release, 5 song EP entitled "Kaleidoscope" is exactly that. Possibly her best work to date these songs are adorable, punchy and fun. Popsicle Theory is one of those artists that actually makes you want to buy a Little Sound DJ. FFO: Chipzel, Polly Pocket and Breakbeat Heartbeat.  Find more of their music below!  popsicletheory.bandcamp.com/album/kaleidoscope soundcloud.com/popsicletheory
