Hyper Foofie


Hyper Foofie is a chiptune project born in December 23rd of 2016 composed of Jeffrey Fernández (that's me, hello!). It all started back in Sweden when I met Dunderpatrullen in Skellefteå. After watching one of their gigs and staying on the same hotel and sharing stuff, I returned to my home country (Costa Rica) with a new vision. I started goofing around with Reason and my brother's Yamaha MA-150, and then boom, the track Bomb Crusader was born!
