New Kickstarter for Classic JRPG with music by Shnabubula

Posted on November 23rd, 2014

Bit Bonton has just launched a Kickstarter for the game Americana Dawn, a JRPG inspired by the 90s classics which takes place in a fictional version of colonial America.

Much of the soundtrack uses a custom built SNES soundset made by our very own Shnabubula and also features songs written by Castlevania series composer Soshiro Hokkai. There are many soundtrack previews on the page as well as one written by Hokkai himself (Timbre). Please show your support over at the project page.

Monomer to release Labyrinth on November 6th

Posted on October 28th, 2014

Welcome back, Monomer! A year and a half passed since his debut Ubiktune album Quite Operational, and now we're glad to announce that his next full-length Labyrinth will be released on November 6th.

Also, our good friend Rufus Blacklock is back in the chair of art director.

Here's how Monomer describes his new effort:

"Labyrinth is everything I love about synthwave and chipmusic: chunky staccato bass lines, soaring melodies, oceans of spacious reverb and heavy, pumping drums. It was written between daydreams of androids, brain-hacking, and digital kingdoms fraught with the monsters in the machine. It was the most fun I've ever had working on music, and I hope that shows in each and every track.

Written gradually over the course of a year and a half, Labyrinth turned out to be the biggest musical challenge I've faced so far. It incorporates a wide array of instruments, from synths like Plogue’s Chipsounds VST and u-he’s Diva, to live guitar on a Fender Telecaster. My main goal after Quite Operational was to create an album where each song had a unique character, not only in the composition but also in the arrangement, production and mixing. This led to a lot of new territory for me, which was both exciting and terrifying, but I’m extremely happy with the end result and can’t wait to share it."

Labyrinth is currently available as CD preorder from our partner-label Telefuture ($12) and digital preorder from Monomer's Bandcamp ($7). Meanwhile, the title track is available to stream and free download via our Soundcloud.
