***PHYSICAL CASSETTE RELEASE NOW AVAILABLE BELOW!!***
Fall Damage is a collection of singles / covers / and other rarities from 2013 - 2018 which I've wanted to officially package and release for some time now. It includes several tracks from previous Chiptunes = Win compilations , my single releases for YM2017, Cheapbeats, random collabs, covers and more!
If you purchase the album - you'll receive bonus songs that did not fit on the album + bonus pictures, logos and video of the actual time I fell on stage at Magfest.
Fall Damage is about Friendship. Some of the best moments of my life have been the friendships I've made at Magfest while being at Chipspace.
Fall Damage is the true story of how - while dancing around on stage to my music - I jumped up high during a massive drop.... thinking my dance move was perfectly in sync with the beat, only to crash REALLY hard onto the Chipspace stage at one of my Saturday night sets. But that wasn't all! I then fell backwards again - spun around and tripped over an amp. After finally regaining my footing - I finished out my set like a champ!
And instead of people mocking me - all I received was support and kindness. And that's what Chiptune is really about. Picking each other up when we fall down (sometimes quite literally) and sharing our passions for this wonderful music with each other. Which brings me to the point of this album!
Fall Damage is also dedicated to my mother Marjory who was my biggest fan and support and heard many of these songs before passing. I love you and miss you every day!
Thank you dear listener for taking the time to listen to my bleeps and bloops! Each track was loving crafted for various systems such as the NES, Sega Genesis, C64, Gameboy and Turbografx 16 etc. I hope there's at least one track you can find in here to enjoy!
Thank to my awesome kids, my wonderful girlfriend, and my precious family for believing in me and putting up with my racket! You guys rock!
