Tristendo's music is always a well-crafted blend of the playful and bizarre, often very technical and sometimes truly experimental. Here he is presenting Datathrash's first NES based release. As a special treat, there's also a remix from another master experimentalist, Neil Baldwin!
Although I feel the title "Nintechno Tweenage #YOLO Catz" speaks for itself, here are Tristendo's words on the subject:
"Welcome to the world of the Tweenage Nintechno #YOLO Catz. Taking some quite raspy famicom disk system audio to it acceptable limits while trying to remain quite melodic. The music itself is kind of inspired by the “Tween wave” Episode of South Park. In this episode the people in town become listeners of music that is represented by farting sounds. It made me think of modern music movements such as Chip bass or dub step which offer the listener bigger lows and Raspy highs.
In this album I take you on a half our ride through the wonderful world of the 2a03 triangle bass with its Japanese companion fds san the wave table. Vast amounts of sawy grooves and VGM sounding escapes. There is a bit of hauntology involved in this one so you’re getting quite the pie here. If there is one statement to be made it’s to take life serious enough to understand the dangers but never let it eclipse the beautiful things that make it yours.
Thanks to the following people for making the Tweenage Nintechno #YOLO Cats experience an reality, for without you in my life none of this would be possible.
