PESTA MIKRO 3 on Facebook
[Hujan004] Twelve Insomnia – Colonel Loves Rave EP
I love chiptune. I never don’t. My friend introduced me to chiptune two years ago. We met in a small gig when I was still a vocalist of Swedish-pop band. I didn’t know what chiptune is till he played a song with gameboy. He was wearing a wacky Doraemon helmet while he’s playing. He’s Volta, if you recognize who he is now. Lol. He played a pop song crafted with those ‘tilulit’ melody. I danced at the time, and I asked him what kinda song he’s playing. He told me, that’s chiptune.

Insomnia (Twelve Insomnia) from Salatiga, Indonesia. He is under Hujan! Rekords from Bogor, West Java who’s just finished his first rave EP. You, if you’re looking for a dance-beat electronic song, go to this link and download it.

A ‘pesta’ (party) is not a party without lighting and visual artist. I am sorry I don’t pay attention very much to a visual artist but in Pesta Mikro 2 the visual artist was Stand by Emulator and… Sorry :P
Dang I have to go. I’ll tell you more about Pesta Mikro 3 and chiptune later okay. <3
