It's five tracks of Game Boy Dubstep goodness, a must-hear if you enjoyed Kupa on the FMA. You can also enjoy Cheapshot's exploration with other chip music platforms over on his Soundcloud. Happy Dubbin and see ya in seven!

This week's post was inspired by a chance encounter trawling the chiptune uploads here on the FMA. I found an upload released by Mexico City Dubstep collective Nimbo, the artist was named Kupa. The tracks, in particular, Peach Bitch, are nicely produced, and reminded me that there is a huge subset of chipmusic dedicated to dubby wobbles. We have covered the J Arthur Keene's Band before, and Jason did this article on quarta330, but there are two other great collectives you should check out as well.
The first is newish upstart Metrodub, a singles focused label with releases from the aforementioned JAKB, Canadian mystery man ??? (I pronounced it as CONFOUNDED GRUNT) and label head Minikomi. Metrodub has been hot with its last few releases,but the biggest name in this space would have to be Jahtari, a label with both physical and online releases and an eclectic roster of electronic dubdudes like fan favorite Disrupt, as well as chip music artists like Dubmood and overthruster.
Fans might pick up on me only having a casual knowledge of this end of the chip music pool, so let me know in the comments if there is anything I am missing, and see you guys in seven!
