Stein Gunnar Bakkeby Brandon Walsh's up-beat and feel-good album is definitely worth checking out if you are a C64 / SID fan. Also kudos to Brandon for making it through Dragon's Lair! Favorite track: Hammock Reloaded (C64).

ORANGE13 Emotional powerhouse! 80s computer noises masterfully produced with 21st century DAWs. Goes way beyond top hits in terms of joy, happiness, and vibrance. Worth more than a small country! Favorite track: Red Bulldozer.

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This is the 140 pieces limited run of Old School, New School, High school. About 80 of them are already pre-ordered and taken, but the remaining stock is up for grabs. It is a professionally produced product, as you can see from the images. The album features all the songs from the digital download plus two extra bonus tracks, namely my Amiga tunes "Dancing Frogs" and "Blackbird Road". The only imperfection with the CD is that the track names for the two bonus tracks have been switched around, but I regard that as a very minor issue.

    Let me know if you want me to sign the album for you, and where. I will sign the front if not otherwise specified.

about

The album "Oldschool, Newschool, Highschool" was released on 23/11/2012! It features eleven tracks from various platforms ranging from authentic Commodore 64 recordings to remastered multi-channel modules and all the way to full blown 'studio' productions featuring modern equipment.

My goal with this album was to present my demo-scene related tracks over the last year, with a few bonus 'oldies and goldies' from the 90's thrown in for good measure. I always wanted to present this music in a more accessible format while also taking the liberty of remixing and remastering some of the tracks in order to present them in as fresh of a sounding mix as possible.

I would like to extend my heartfelt thank you to everyone involved in the creation of this album and to everyone who listened to the work stages of the songs, came with constructive criticism and also to those who constantly pushed me to finish it. It was always a dream of mine to go back to the roots and produce chip style music again, after a long hiatus from producing, and getting back into tracking chip music was certainly the reason I am now as motivated as ever to continue to write music, of all styles.

A special thank you goes out to Radix who allowed me to re-arrange his wonderful song 'Tpolmgirl' and include it on my album. His music inspired me a lot when I was 16-17 years old, and still does to this day, so being able to include it as the last track on my album really meant a lot to me as I can think of no other artist of the electronica/chip genre that I have looked up to more than him.

It would mean a lot to me if you spread the word about the album if you like it. A short promo video will be uploaded to my YouTube account shortly and a short mix of all the songs of the album will also be available soon.

Thank you for listening.

about

Brandon Walsh Sweden

I grew up with the Commodore 64 eight bit home computer extraordinaire of the 80's as my main source of musical inspiration during my youth.

Nowadays I try to produce many different styles of music, but my heart seems to be deeply rooted in simple waveforms, pulsewidth modulated arpeggios and catchy tunes.

I hope you like my music.
