Hi folks, I'm totally new to the chiptunes scene and am hoping to get some artist recommendations. SNES is my favorite console in part because of the music. For me, it was the erra where music still had that generated/chipy vibe, but stared to also had real intense atmosphere and emotion I.E. Castlevania IV, Super Metroid, Final Fantasy, Zelda. I also love the lighter music from that generation!

I'd love any recommendations for artists to check out that are making this kind of music today.

Thanks for the suggestion!
I'm specifically hoping to find some artists with more of a ambient / creepy vibe (like the Castlevania and Metroid soundtracks).

I'm not sure if it's done with the SNES, but you should also check out Heat by Phlogiston. It's a part of a douple EP release he did which can be found here: https://phlogiston.bandcamp.com/album/nectar

And you might be able to find something that suits your fancy on the now closed netabel, Pause: http://www.iimusic.net/

You may also wanna try Ubiktune. They specialize in genres in between chiptune and other things: http://ubiktune.com/
