Kind of Bloop: An 8-Bit Tribute to Miles Davis

Pixel art by SnackAdmiral.

Andy from noticed my completely random Miles Davis post the other day, and informed me about his ambitious chiptune project "Kind of Bloop"- which drops soon. Listen to what the man says:
"What would the pioneers of jazz sound like on a Nintendo Entertainment System? Coltrane on a C-64? Mingus on Amiga? For years, I've wondered what "chiptune jazz" would sound like, but there are only a tiny handful of jazz covers ever made.

To satisfy my curiosity - and commemorate the 50th anniversary of Miles Davis's "Kind of Blue" - I've asked five brilliant chiptune musicians to collaborate and reinvent the entire album in the 8-bit sound."

And because of the way song licensing works, I think today is the last day to snag yourself a copy!
