Comment: Goto80 is the Swede Anders Carlsson who is a prominent musician in the chiptune/demoscene/track music/nintendocore compartments who started making music in his early years already (in 1992). On the other side, I have got no information about Uwe Schenk Band but being related to the recent issue only. I have some doubts that the aforementioned band is Carlsson`s phantom, imaginative combo to deviate from his usual musical doings and stylistic preferences (those tracker music elements are either more hidden or just absent or just developed into next, post-chiptune electronic music). In fact, it was just the imagination of mine although in reality Goto80`s music was re-arranged by four musicians in live thereby providing an innovative concept for orchestrated music and chiptune breaks to get together. Indeed, one could listen to a moody mishmash of cool jazz progressions, effortlessly sailing regatta pop and yacht rock motives. However, in the final track Volksing Ferretismico the listener could enjoy odds and ends of chiptune shards getting some impulses into the exuberant, carnival-alike crescendos and eargasmic climaxes. On the whole, the result is an astonishing whole of demonstrating Anders Carlsson`s versatility and craftiness to create something quite different from his usual practice decently. The issue is a part of UpitUp Records which allows one to enter into a rich source of many great albums.
