Nameless One As the title so eloquently describes, this track makes me want to pirouette through the cosmos on the magical blips that DDRKirby wields masterfully. I look forward to purchasing more of your work in the future! Favorite track: Cosmic Pirouette.

Fernando Suastegui Within the vast sea of chiptune and lo-fi music acts out there, only a few dare to explore beyond the technical limitations of the genre itself. DDRKirby is one of them. Every track on this album is so amazing I actually created a paypal account just to acquire it through legal means. Favorite track: Come Home.

"The Ecstasy of Life" is my debut original artist album. Featuring my trademark "9-bit" modern chiptune sound, these tracks are a compilation of some of my best work over the course of 5 years.

The title track, "The Ecstasy of Life", was originally composed in one hour for a One Hour Compo contest. Like the rest of the album, it embodies my primary philosophy towards music: Don't stop to think; just let the melodies soar and flow.

Special thanks to Flexstyle, WillRock, johnfn, dekune, and EL for their wonderful remixes, Kat Jia for the beautiful CD design, and to you, for listening to my music. Thank you.
