Like Chiptune music? So do we! Of course Chiptune has been around for decades now in the form of video game music and the brilliant station 8bitFM plays a mixture of classic game soundtracks and contemporary Chiptune beats. A calender and Twitter is up on the site with details of upcoming shows and mixes (because you can never have enough Twitter. There’s also a blog covering the scene which recently posted up this little gem; Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody as played via aging hardware.

Centrifudge Anyone Can Make Dubstep Compilation feat Chevron Free Download Out Now

This release is really excellent, I played Idiron Soundtrack’s track off this on the last radio show. Would love to spend more time writing a proper review but just don’t have time this week. Generally interesting production, darker glitched up sounds of dub step.

This is how they put it:

“In an homage to those true “mainstream innovators” Radiohead, we’ve taken “Anyone Can Play Guitar” and turned it into “Anyone Can Make Dubstep” a excuse to release something a little different to our usual output. The idea was to solicit tracks from our artist roster and friends utilising the 2-step motif and/or elements associated with it, with the hope that our broad musical church would offer up some original musical communion, or at least something grotesque to sacrifice at the altar. We’ve got some great tracks on here from Centrifuge regulars, some new faces and some distinguished guests.”

1. Ken Bock – Meltdown
2. Koolmorf Widesen – Bow94
3. Puzzleweasel and Richard Devine – Mad Bonce
4. Idiron Soundtrack – Pinter’s Second Silence
5. Jash – Emerging Daisy
6. Chevron – St Matthew
