FatNicK Reviews Stuff: Bits and Pieces A History of Chiptunes

I’m pretty surprised that its taken me so long to get round to reading this book myself, to be honest, but here it is: A quick review at Kenneth McAlpine’s scholarly examination of the history of chiptunes. I suppose the first thing that needs to Read More ...

Music Review: Wiwi Jumbo

    This was originally written for the lovely peeps over at gametripper.co.uk. So why not give them a visit as well?         I feel a bit of a fraud writing this. I wish I could say that Wiwi Jumbo was a track Read More ...

Gig Review: Yuzo Koshiro & Motohiro Kawashima (Fabric 30/11/17)

    When it was announced that London nightclub Fabric had lost its license back in 2016, It definitely felt like the end of an era. I can’t say i’d exactly been a regular, but i’d had enough fun nights at the club to briefly Read More ...

Fatnick’s Album of The Week: Dana Jean Pheonix – Synth City

I’d be the first to admit i don’t really have my finger on the pulse when it comes to the newest releases, so it’s nice to have picked up on something in the first week for a change! Released on Tuesday, Synth City is the Read More ...

Fatnick’s Album of the Week: Sega Sound Unit [H.] – 1st Album

Though his soundtrack for Fatnick-favourite Outrun is widely lauded, Sega composer Hiroshi “Hiro” Kawaguchi sadly doesn’t receive the same respect as some of his more famous soundtrack composing peers. This is a bit of a shame: Not only does his extensive back catalogue include the Read More ...

FatNick’s Album of the week: Dat Fuzz by irrlicht project

  Blimey. I spend a lot of time trying to promote my own slightly rubbish music, so I thought it would be quite nice if i plugged some other people for a change. Consequently, here’s my first “album of the week!” Irrlicht Project is a Read More ...

Fatnick reviews stuff: Haynes Electrosynth Kit

Considering that my creative output is entirely digital it might not surprise you to learn that, when it comes to building things in the physical world, I am not  a massively practical person. Physical clumsiness aside, I’m not really sure why this is the case. Read More ...

Music Gear review: Korg NanoKEY 2

As anyone who has tried raising a child in a British flat will probably attest to, space generally comes at a bit of a premium in these parts. Consequently, I recently took the decision to downsize from my (already pretty dinky) Maudio Oxygen 25 to Read More ...

Plogue Chipsounds Review

Plogue have  just released an update for their Chipsounds plugin – something I’ve used extensively on Attack of The Terrible Lizard Kitty – and are currently selling it for half price. I thought now would be a good time to jot down a quick review. Read More ...

Gig review: Metal Box In Dub

A weird gig in many ways. Would many people turn up to see a partial PIL line up play a bastardised version of a 30 year old album? Yes, apparently they would: when we rocked up at the village underground, the que was round the Read More ...

Review: Reaper

In the old days it was simple: If you wanted a DAW, you either went with Cubase, Logic or Cakewalk. There were a couple of others, but these were ever really expensive or just plain weird. So then, it came as a bit of a Read More ...
