Icarus EP

Updated: Jul 1, 2008

8BitPeoples Release #86

Dive onto the dance floor with a hybrid heart of NES bleeps and heavy beats. Trash80 has made his way back from exile with his long over due second EP Icarus – A modern chip-rock-techno-electro dance excursion. Push, climb, bite, crawl your way though the super galactic interstellar network of consciousness to rediscover one of next year's hottest releases to date.

Great songs, i did like your earlier work but this ep with 5 all great songs is a true move forward i think. Even though i would've liked one or two less agressive, slower tracks ("and the rain", "faces of a fashion" rock), overall it really is a great ep with great music!
Thanks for sharing your work with us.

It's taken me 30 years to realize that this is the music I've been wanting to hear. The first half of which was spent as a bottle of scotch aging all alone on a shelf--bottled up. The second half of which spent as a cat waiting, watching, stalking the gate at the back fence; longing as I watch my masters enter and exit so freely and wontonly; plotting my eventual escape. That day has come and it is today.

No matter how cheesy it sounds, your music is a huge inspiration and a beautiful thing to listen to. Don't ever stop creating, for you are amazing.

Also give us a way to shove some money in your general direction! Lord knows you could probably use some doughnuts and coffee every now and then.

Who the heck are you and how do you rock like this? I feel like I've discovered the biggest secret of the year listening to this FREE EP. You should really get a label deal and start making some remixes, b/c I think the kids out there are ready to eat this sh!t up.

Digital Bee
Sep 10, 2008 3:05pm

Back since napster was born I was all like wtf? I am downloading and that's all there is to it! Music was meant to be free. Then I downloaded this wicked piece of chaotic pulses and for the first time I felt guilty about pressing the download button.

This shit is sinful! YOU ROCK!!

I just learned about your music--sooo good. I'm so surprised that: (1) such an awesome chiptune artist was totally unknown to me; (2) that even the music from years ago is top quality; and (3) that there have been so few releases, when it's obvious that with your abilities you could be a really big deal if you came out with regular releases.

And on that note, I can't wait for your next tracks, whenever they may be released. Thank you for putting it out, freely available (but if you sold it, I'd pay in seconds flat).

I heard a couple of tracks on Weekend America this morning--way to bring chip to the masses!

Wicked EP.

Dec 6, 2008 8:43pm

Agreed! I heard 'Missing You' on WeekendAm and made it a mission to find these tracks. This is some serious work here. Reminds me of the beginnings of Daft Punk circa 1994. Keep it up TRS80!

Heard you on Weekend America this afternoon - it brought me back to hours of playing Mega Man as a kid! Thanks for putting all this stuff out - it rocks.

LOVE chip music, and never even knew about 8BP and yourself until a few days back! - I've now listened to loads of albums, and this is so far my favourite - awesome stuff mate - all great tracks, but yep, Icarus and Sodium Sonet are my favourites, and I stumbled upon your site and have just found an extended version of SS - quality!

Keep it up, seriously impressive stuff! - a fantastic melding of nostalgic chip sounds and quality backing - love it!

'Missing You' was used as the soundtrack for a retro computing project vid on Youtube, just recently posted on hackaday. Killer.

heard Missing You via a hackaday submission and had to find out more. Based on the comments I wasn't the only one. Your tune received almost as many comments as the hack being showcased :)

Possibly one of my all time favourite chip tunes. Up there with Din Stalker and co.

Dec 16, 2009 11:31am

Love this stuff. I was reading this book that my friend suggested (Simulations of God by John C. Lilly) and had a random Youtube playlist going. Some of your songs started playing. I didn't really hear them at first because I was so deep in concentration in reading the book, but then I paused a moment and was like, "Whoa!"
It's beautiful.

I can't put my finger on it... But the song Icarus, I feel like I've heard it somewhere before. I'm not quite sure where that would have been though. It gives me a feeling of great nostalgia and I love it. This album is amazing.

Like Anon said above me, this album is amazing. It's been on my favorites list for at least a year (I know I came late to the party) and I've wanted more like it. Sadly it is a "fruitless search," as said by Anon v1. Please become more active!

New-ish fan of a great, but inactive artist. Thanks for the music.
