Splatinum "Pumping Quarterz"
8-bit tunes are so 2005. Seattle's premiere bass-toting, hip-hop-obsessed gamers-cum-production duo, Splatinum up the resolution on its latest single, "Pumping Quarterz." The track's hard-hitting beat and vocodered hook ("fat booty bitches is so delicious") speak to the outfit's club-lovin' side, but the buzzing synths and assorted sound effects are clearly the work of pure video game fanboys. It would be a stretch to call "Pumping Quarterz" geek-hop, or any other contrived genre title, but Splatinum offers sounds for both ends of that spectrum—along with remixes from Mochipet and Inaudible—on its Pumping Quarterz EP, available for free download here.
