Swedish youngster August Modigs is as prolific as they come. He released Multiplayer late last year, a rambunctious romp through NES-inspired cubism, chiseling the rough edges of 8-bit blockiness into palatable chunks of chiptune sensations. Today's offering, "Ligryophobia," is a throwback dubstep tune with definite chipstep qualities. Bit-crushed melodies dance along popping snares and kicks. The groove and drive of the tune feel like the mine cart levels of some of your favorite games of youth, including the hops, drops, and breaks in the track when you've got to buckle down and pray for safety.
