16 Bit (from the album Back From the Dead) is a new single from artist, Catfish Walkin. As the title implies, the song incorporates “chiptune” style, old school video game music, creatively blending it hip hop vocals. Musically this is one of the better hip hop jams I’ve encountered in recent memory. The backing isn’t merely a bunch of blips and beeps, it consists of rich, elaborate array of sounds and is positively symphonic. For his part, Catfish Walkin delivers a lively performance and brings an “MC” kind of energy to the track. This is a retro party song for sure, one should also appreciate how sophisticated the arrangements are. 16 Bit is a winner.
