|Dilemma specialzes in a type of music known
as "Chip Tunes". These "Chip Tunes"
are produced with the most ancient of equipment, or mondern
emulations of ancient equipment. The sounds produced are of
8bit resoultion, sounding like the old C64 / Atari game consoles.
Marriying a modern sensibility with antique analogue sequencers,
Dilemma produces "modern 8bit classics" that
pulse and pound with an appreciation of the power of super amplification,
whilst expounding a puritanical analogue / pre-midi steptime
sequencing regimen that gives the recordings a tight feeling
that is not found on midi sequenced recordings.
On Chip Tunes I and ][, many moods are evoked, different rhythims
explored and textures played with. These works are much more
than simple homages to computer game music; they are pieces
that use that genre as a starting point for exploration, a way
to break away from the herd of techno producers that are all
slavishly using the same sounds, the same synthesizers, sequencers
and approches. It works! Music.
