Icarus: New EP out Now!

Icarus: New EP Out Now!

May 21, 2008

I managed to finish a small album dubbed Icarus.

8bitpeoples > trash80 > Icarus: Grab it now!


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 years hottest releases to date.


Also look at the blog below, Live in NYC this Saturday! Don't miss it if your in the area.

May 23, 2008 7:10am

Amazing. Love Icarus and Missing you.
The other ones are great too.

May 23, 2008 9:36pm

Please make more of these, this is exactly the kind of music I LOVE! I love the juxtaposition of retroness with modern dance!

May 24, 2008 9:31am

Your best work yet. This stuff is incredible, amazing job.

May 25, 2008 7:59am

Yay! Eargasms!

Sadly though, it'll take me a long time to get used to Sodium Sonet Extended... as much as I wanted it, I'm now so used to the short version.... it messes me up listening to the new one xP

Thank you!!! Now you just need to take your favorites and produce an actual album, and sell it for profit!

I'll buy it!

(And I mean an album. Like, dance music AND your piano :D )

Only on the first track and I can already tell this is going to be one of the best 8bit releases of the year. Fantastic work as always.

Is that an extended Sodium Sonnet at the end? Sublime.

This EP is unbelievable! This is exactly what I look for in chiptunes. Very well done sir!

Whoa, excellent album! Nothing quite like the modern dance sound applied some very skilled chiptune work. Thanks for the new music Trash80; it'll certainly be competing with the likes of Portishead and Justice on personal playlists.

Jun 4, 2008 11:20pm

A friend hooked me up with your stuff, and I must say, this latest album is pretty amazing.

I can't get it out of my head.

Jun 5, 2008 9:45pm

Aww, I was hoping for that unknown song that you have uploaded on Youtube. I want!

Icarus is still a very satisfying EP, to say the least.

Jun 6, 2008 10:01am

I absolutely love the new album. Great work. My 3-month-old son loves it too. Every time I play it he starts smiling and thrashing his arms. :)

Jun 6, 2008 5:27pm

i just discovered your music today.. and i have to say
i think this ep is incredible.
within the space of hour, i am in love with it
that doesn't normally happen
'missing you' is epic

Jun 6, 2008 9:11pm

Congrats on making one of the best chiptune releases in a while. Now if only it was a full album and not an EP... we can dream.

Jun 8, 2008 5:20pm

Mr Lamb, you are teh awesome.

Jun 10, 2008 11:19am

the only gripe I have about your music is the songs end. amazing stuff.

I love this ep !
Seriously, you're a genius !

Any chance seeing you play live somewhere around France ?

Jun 13, 2008 9:03am


The extended Sodium Sonnet is just what i was waiting for, and Missing You is sublime!

I'm looking forward to you releasing the Schroeder's Failure MIDI file ;)

You should get in touch with more game designers to see if they can include your music like Darwinia did. I would have never found out about your music or the chiptune genre if it weren't for that game.

PS... your chiptune is as good as it gets.

Jun 15, 2008 5:59am

re Darwinia, me too!

The new songs and amended versions are awesome and fun to dance too as well:)

Jun 24, 2008 10:18am

love it. love it.

Jun 24, 2008 10:34am

I`m from Russia. I love chiptune and you are best! Sodium sonet best track

Jun 25, 2008 3:33am

Seriously, I would pay money for tunes like this. I've been listening to this album for the past few months everyday. It's fucking awesome, love you man!

Jun 25, 2008 6:51am

Just plain good, love the Sodium Sonet remix

Jun 28, 2008 10:29am

that's great! now you're the benny benassi of the 8 bit scene! :D

Jul 20, 2008 7:21am

thanks for beein the best chiptuner out there!

Aug 6, 2008 6:23pm

Fantastic EP. You have a new fan.

Aug 7, 2008 1:13pm

:) I love your chiptunes. I also love your piano music too. I would cry if you stopped producing this for us.

yeah please do get more game designers to hire your music. Darwinia would not have been the same without you supplying some mood to it.

your music has feeling - something increasingly rare.


you are loved by many

Aug 18, 2008 3:33am

i love your music since i first played darwinia. this ep is soooo good! I feel tingles down my spine while listening to this ep; couldn't move, didn't want to. thank you! if you ever come visit Moscow, it's ok to me ;) keep it up!

Aug 29, 2008 1:36am

Your tracks never cease to amaze me or move me. BTW, no mention of blipfestival.org, if I were anywhere near there I would go out there just for you.

Sep 2, 2008 2:44am

Only recently checked your site for updates and saw Icarus. I have listened to it umpteen times now and each time my heart sung. Truely great! thank you so much for all your music.

Sep 13, 2008 7:25am

Goddamn, man. You have no idea just how awesome your music is.

"Missing You" is #1 on Last.fm's Chiptune tag player for a reason - because it's a goddamn epic song.

I don't care if I have to wait another five years for a full album for you, because I know that the longer it takes, the better it gets. Keep up the excellent work!

(Also, the post submit button doesn't work on Safari 3.1.2... dunno if you're aware of that.)

Wow, how could I have missed that you had released a new album?! It\'s freakin\' great! Absolutely awesome! I could throw superlatives at you all day, but I think you get the point :P Can\'t stop listening!

Oct 1, 2008 6:01pm

great... again. all tracks are amazing!
your music is not same i think. its a compliment, good one. i love hologram, promo and weeklies but ikarus is little bit different. maybe its the beats...
wellcome :)

Oct 5, 2008 1:31pm

I have listened to this 3 times already. It's really something to listen to in my audio box (car).

Nov 2, 2008 11:41am

I just stumbled across your music and never listening to 8bit or chiptunes before, you have set the bar very high!
I love both your albums!! Where can I purchase them to support you and keep you making this wonderful music?

Great music, keep up the excellent work!
