Weekend Mixtape (If it ain’t 8bit…)

Juice said it.

Made this for Lori over at Get In The Van (from last week)

It’s a bunch of songs by St. Juice leaning more to the 8bit side of things. “8bit” is music made using gameboys, or any retro computer and video game hardware.

The mixtape is more “fake”-bit, it’s made using some of Tweakbench’s software instruments (VSTs) that emulate the sound of those wonderfully, shitty, evocative machines, so no real gameboys were harmed in the making of this mixtape…

Enjoy, this one clocks in at just over 12 minutes.

1212 by St. Juice.
