To combat the typically drawl holiday card onslaught, Foundation 9 tapped iam8bit to produce, master and design the ultimate Christmastime mailer as a gift to their industry pals. Eleven holiday-themed tracks were composed from scratch, enlisting some of the brightest talent in the micro-music scene to “rethink” classics like “O Christmas Tree” or “The Twelve Days of Christmas” in 80’s chiptunes terms — you know, crunchy, NES-style audio goodness. 8 Bit Weapon, Doctor Octoroc and nine other vets of the scene contributed tracks; and primo pixel artist, Jude Buffum, provided the visual stylings for the sleeve. The CDs were then hand-numbered (only 1024) and shrink-wrapped to insure collectability for the years to come. The result was dozens of blogs voting it the best holiday “card” of the year.
