Dave Harris aka Blitz Lunar is one of Ubiktune's oldest artists, whose first appearance was on the Summertunes compilation album back in 2009. Being a prolific NES/Famicom composer, Dave is also a master of audio production overall, and this passion in combination with FM and retro sounds, led him to creation of his debut album Triptunes. "Hexaperplexia" is a track that was supposed to be a part of that album, but was dropped for stylistic reasons.

Fourth week with Weekly Treats and we have a new track from Zantilla.
Zantilla is a new name in Ubiktune family. Using the wide arrays of FM sounds, combined with classic chiptune elements, his début album Encounters blended into a full progressive explosion. However, being a versatile composer, his Weekly Treats track shows another side, jumping into funky and upbeat direction.

Third week with Weekly Treats and we have a fresh upbeat track from Gavin Allen aka Monomer.
Generally, his music represents the aesthetic of 80s electronic and science fiction themes in a chiptune form. These are the areas which Ubiktune began focusing on in the last 2 years, and Monomer brightly performed them in the debut full-length, Quite Operational.

Firstly, let us welcome you to the year of 2014! Here at Ubiktune, we wish you all the happiness and to let the music be your guiding light in the rhythm of your everyday life. We have so many things planned for this year, so follow us via Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud and stay tuned.
In the beginning of the year, we are glad to announce, that Ubiktune will be a part of Weekly Treats — an ambitious project, curated by people behind Pxl-Bot and The Waveform Generator.
The main focus of the project is to release a new track by a different artist every Friday. In comparison with the previous year, Weekly Treats 2014 is joined by 11 curators, in the form of blogs, labels, festivals or communities! Each calender month, a curator is taking control and choosing the artists which will be on the project. Ubiktune was gladly invited to be the first in a row of 2014!
Andrew Kilpatrick says (via chipmusic.org
"We're beyond excited to announce that the first curator, who will be taking over January, is none other than the legendary label UBIKTUNE!! Due to their, quite frankly, prolific output over the years, this high quality label was an obvious candidate to kick off such a huge year, and with what they've got planned, we can already assure you they've not let us down."
Weekly Treats will launch the first Ubiktune track this Friday. Don't miss it!
