Description

The innovative & creative, Norwegian producer Torb The Roach teams up with Floppy Mac Space for their second album and 8-bit video game, Square Wave Adventures. The 8-bit video game can be played online for free at www.squarewaveadventures.com There are strains of underground hip hop that predict the mainstreams future or find themselves in conversation with its present. Then theres the one that branches out from the rest with something mystifying, creative, unusual, avant-garde and ingenious to create an uncanny character, Floppy Mac Space. The dramatic events leading up to the making of Torb and Floppys 1st album, Tape Echo: Gold Floppies, were chronicled in a film released with the album. In the new Square Wave Adventures game the drama continues and this time you can partake in the action! The game is pure 8-bit video game madness. The plot is set in a futuristic retro dystopia. SuperMonster has captured Torb The Roach and, with him locked away, deploys his weapons of mass production to enforce a terrible reign of uninspired musical excess. As the last hope, Mac Space disembarks on a heroic quest to free Torb and save the universe from eternal monotony. Urged onward by the thumping rhythms and hypnotic basslines from the soundtrack, Floppy battles his way through SuperMonsters minions and agents of evil towards an inevitable final showdown with SuperMonster himself! The album, which is the soundtrack to the game, showcases the duos signature sound combining 12-bit drum machines, samples & classic synths, such as the Minimoog and Yamaha Dx7. Square waves have been tossed into the broiling brew of sounds as well, resulting in a full pallet of new and surprising acoustic flavors! The 10 level, 8-bit video game, made in collaboration with programming whiz Nils Nilski Nordmark, can be played online for free at Squarewaveadventures.com. The album is out June 7th on LP, digital and cassette on KingUnderground Records.
