Continuing Chime’s run of explosive releases for Circus Records, he follows up the ‘Experience Points’ EP with ‘Coins!’. Bursting with the distinctive hyper colour melodies and playful dextrous composition that have earned him nods from the biggest names in bass, ‘Coins!’ proves that Chime is showing no signs of slowing down.
‘Coins!’ is the first in a new series of tracks for Chime, leading up to a second EP release for Circus. Channeling his love of classic 8-bit video game soundtracks and modern cutting-edge electronic production this release is one of his boldest, most fully realised statements to date.
“Coins!” is a track I’ve been meaning to make for almost three years now since I originally thought up the idea. I combined influence from a ton of different video games to create the tune, mostly within the Gameboy Advance era that I have some of the most nostalgia for. I hope for the listener it conjures up an image of pixelated explosions, manic arcade fun and the joy of collecting stuff in games.” – Chime
