legendary (arcade) game company capcom, creators of true classics such as mega man, street fighter, resident evil and ghosts'n goblins, are about to bring back their unforgettable 1987 classic 'bionic commando'. versions for xbox 360, ps3 and pc will be on shelves in the uk on 22nd may and you can pre-order via amazon.co.uk and play.com today!
you might be wondering why we're featuring video games now. well, first of all 'bionic commando' and basically all capcom titles are among my personal all-time favorites, ever since i started playing games back in the c-64 days, to the amiga and super nintendo, the playstation and still lasting until today on current next-gen consoles. and even more important for us, capcom got uk heavy bass producer rusko, french techno saviour surkin and drum & bass legend clipz to remix the original 'bionic commando' theme.
we've got the premiere of the clipz remix right here for you today. with 15 years of experience in the jungle and drum & bass 'game' and releases on full cycle and audio zoo in his discography, the bristol-based producer adds some deep heavy bass and rolling breaks to the original game theme while staying true to the 8-bit flavour with lots of chiptune arpeggios, bleeps and sound fx.

additionally, we've got a copy of the game to give away, send a mail with your name and address (uk only) to firstname.lastname@example.org and put 'discodust' in the subject! good luck!
check out the rusko remix on mad decent, the surkin remix on bigstereo and the official game site on bioniccomando.com. let's hope capcom brings us more of this in the future, can't wait to hear some banging resident evil ('ssssstarrrrrsssss!') remixes!
