Let’s do our Best! – Chiptune compilation from Play It Loud!

Let’s do our Best! – The 2016 chiptune compilation album from FL based chipmusic record label, Play It Loud!, was the perfect Valentine’s Day present! ❤ Even though it was released a few weeks ago, I can’t seem to go a day without getting one of these super energetic and catchy songs stuck in my head~*

If you haven’t listened to it yet, then do it, do it, DO IT!!!

You can listen to the whole album for free on Play It Loud!’s Bandcamp HERE, but if you want to purchase the album, special pre-order packages are still available! And you’ll def wanna pick one of those up, because they include a super kawaii cassette and tshirt with rad art from Punimelt!

I have tons of photos of the artists featured on the compilation at 8bitLA and Play It Loud’s Freq.Fest.v.5.0 that I’ll be posting very soonly too!

You can see more photos from chipmusic events with the artists featured on the compilation, plus more, HERE! ❤
