In more wrestling news, 8bitX is proud to help bring one of the hottest professional wrestling promotions direct to you! VALKYRIE Women’s Professional Wrestling has featured international superstars in an effort to demonstrate that women’s wrestling is much more than what you see on Monday nights. Queens Road is the third show put on by this rising promotion, and this show his hard-hitting from beginning to end.

My favorite match in this event is what VALKYRIE has billed as the Battle of Honor: “The Baddest Woman on the Planet” Bonesaw Jessie Brooks vs. Mia Yim. These two have a match that left me stunned. Such high impact action, each one of these athletes wanted to prove to not only themselves, but to the sport what they were made of. You want to see a smash-mouth wrestling match, these two brought would not be denied the honor of giving it all they had, and left me cheering in the end in for one of the best matches I’ve seen in quite some time in any promotion on the planet.

Megaran Free Music

Finally, MegaRan has been KILLING IT on Kickstarter, as of this writing it’s at $7,592, which is $2,592 OVER the $5,000 asked for the Director’s Cut of Mega-Lo-Mania. Do yourself a favor and check out our interview with MegaRan from when the Kickstarter was released last week!

MegaRan never lets us down on the music-tip since his Kickstarter is doing so well we get a free track! This one hits REALLY close to home. I’m a Philadelphia sports fanatic. I grew up right outside of West Philly, suburb called Darby, no not the Upper Darby Tina Fey is from that is up the road…. I’m from Darby, and have loved sports all my life.

Certain 610WIP shows have influenced my radio style when I’m hosting my shows, and the love runs so deep it’s hard to bring into words. Enter MegaRan.  Take a listen, it’s something that resonates with me so I thought you guys will like it too. I’m still mad he included the call from the 93 World Series. I think that was Mustin‘s call though…

MegaFlare Takes on Castlevania, DJ Cutman Hand Selected Halloween Party Mix

grey MegaFlare Takes on Castlevania, DJ Cutman Hand Selected Halloween Party Mix

The double song release is highly addictive and will haunt your eardrums until they surrender to the sinister beats of MegaFlare.

Earlier this week we featured MegaRan, with an interview and also an update on his show in Philly last night, and his tireless efforts to create music and new concepts to the artform. The other person that comes to mind as one of the hardest working people in VGM is DJ Cutman.

This week alone Cutman released a comprehensive guide to busking at conventions you aren’t booked at, released MegaFlare’s Hunter on Gamechops, and put together a KICK-ASS mix for your Halloween parties on YouTube.

MegaFlare’s Hunter

This may be a strange release of only 2 tracks for a release, but the way this album was created, the resulting sounds will have you repeating these tracks for days/weeks to come.

From Gamechops: “This time, he collaborated with Dj CUTMAN to record each channel of the Gameboy’s sound-chip separately to mix them using Ableton Live. The result are two larger-than-life chiptune tracks with driving basslines and crisp clean leads. You can hear the influence of Baltimore’s clubs in Mega Flare’s drum patterns and arrangement.”

These songs are ADDICTIVE to say the least.  You can listen to both songs on the Gamechops Hunter album page:

Cutman’s Monster Mix

Who wouldn’t want their haunted party over the next few days DJ’d by one of the best? I personally am going to a party tonight hosted by 8bitX’s own MrCultural, you may know him from the 8bit Extravaganza days as the Master of the Creepy Craigslist. That party will need some music, and DJ Cutman has come through in a big way.

48 Tracks long, all remixed and with the Gamechops touch, various artists on some of the spookiest songs throughout gaming history. The best part??  It starts with Ghosts N’ Goblins, a personal favorite game for me expecially this time of year! Oh yeah and it’s completely…FREE!

MegaRan Interview Airs Tonight 6PM Eastern

First off if you haven’t heard any of the album, STOP, or as the kids say STHAP, and check out the FULL ALBUM for free:

Megaran comes out with a VENGEANCE, with a more aggressive style than we’re used to, and it is AMAZING. I cannot wait to hear more of this side of MegaRan.

I interviewed MegaRan at BitGen Gamerfest 9 and introduced him to the live audience as, “The hardest working man in VGM”.  The man lives up to the hype. Right now MegaRan aka Random is supposed to be on a break from his frantic worldwide tour schedule. I receive a text from the best MC in the game right now about a new album being released AND a kickstarter. My question is WHEN DOES HE SLEEP!?

If you missed our interview last month with Mega Ran & filmmaker Michael Cardoza, you can check that our right here.


The Mega-Lo-Mania Documentary follows MegaRan across his tour of the Southwest US. Right now the film is only available on DVD, and MegaRan explained, “In today’s downloadable content world, we wanted to give everyone something they can hold in their hand”.  Due to popular demand, fans are clamoring for this product on the more modern distribution channels like Netflix, Itunes, and Amazon. In response MegaRan has put together a Kickstarter campaign for the Director’s Cut to cover the over $5,000 which is the base costs of getting onto these distribution platforms.

Once again we will be talking to MegaRan today and the interview will be airing at 6PM Eastern on 8bitX Radio Network
