Monstercat is wasting no time in kicking off the new year right. The electro powerhouse label’s first release of 2017 comes from Swedish happy hardcore producer nanobii with his new single “Chipland.”
As the name would lead you to believe, “Chipland” is driven by an Anamanaguchi-like 8-bit melody supported by a beefy hardcore beat. The track takes the listener on a roller coaster ride through an amusement park of pixelated skylines and neon ferris wheels, all the while spinning the listener around in dizzying loop-de-loops and breathtaking drops. “Chipland” has a magical dreamlike quality that produces a feeling of instant nostalgia for a memory you’ve yet to form. That vague suspicion that one day down the road this track will come up on shuffle and you’ll be transported back to the place where this song meant the most to you.
