Now that you’ve probably worn deep grooves into Wave Patrol — the Arcane Kids mix released a few weeks back from That Venus Patrol Wild Rumpus Party — here comes another set that’ll likely be in heavy rotation for the foreseeable future.
# (that’s ‘hashtag’) is a two-hour mix put together by Christopher ‘tru luv‘ Hedborg, a name you’ll recognize from his earlier game work like Eleven and as co-founder of art/game collective #weirdkids.
In addition to that group having just exhibited at Berlin’s Amaze Festival, Hedborg’s been devoting much more time to his musical output as tru luv, including #ghosts — a forthcoming collaboration with Moscow-based artist Pixelord.
More holiday-appropriate pixels, this time from Natalie ‘coffeemakescreative‘ Hanke & Petros ‘reanimagic‘ Afshar, with Retro Horror, a ‘little spooky illustration featuring some zombie pixels, ufos and rockets!’ which you can see more detailed closeups of via Natalie’s portfolio site here.
Following her similar Shadow of the Colossus piece, Berlin-based designer Natalie ‘coffeemakescreative‘ Hanke pays tribute to Terry Cavanagh’s Super Hexagon with this illustration created in Hexels, a new pixel-plus type art tool soon to be released by Ken Kopecky & Ted Martens. Best viewed in super massive full-res to truly appreciate its RGB CRT-ish subtlety.
