I think that De La Soul were wrong, because the magic number is clearly “two.” I guess three worked for them, but when you’re talking about E(D)M groups, there are just so many great examples of two. I mean Plaid, BoC, Daft Punk, Modeselektor, Autechre…. Anyway.
I’m not a chiptune aficionado, by any means, and frankly, most of the stuff that I’ve heard is not very impressive. It usually sounds like old Nintendo music, instead of music composed using MIDI synths. These guys use a Commodore 64 with layered guitar, bass and piano. It’s fantastic. It is also rare that I like an entire album these days, of any genre. Since I bought their album, I’ve played it about eight times all the way through. I bought it yesterday.
Here are a few examples:
