Learn more about me
Tell us a bit about yourself? I'm Basscharmer, name is influenced from a Rage Against the Machine song called Snakecharmer. My influences are mostly the 80s-era games, their soundtracks and some great composers like Mick Gordon, Jake Kaufman and Disasterpeace.
There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? I started producing music with using samples and trying to make popular EDM genre stuff like Dubstep, Drum & Bass, trance etc. But I started to getting interested in more different stuff like chiptune and OSTs of the older generation video game eras. I think chiptune/8-bit music can be more than just OSTs of the pixel art video games and I just want to share what can be done with it. Well, at least what I can do with it.
What’s your back-story? "Songs For A Dys/Utopia" album is an actually a story idea of mine. Whole album is a concept for that. A guy arrives to an utopic place, things gone wrong and that utopia becames a dystopia. I know, it's kinda cheesy but it sounds really better in my mind.
What are you working on at the moment? I'm working on a new album right now. I'm just trying to go all metal on chiptune this time, I hope it'll be good.
