SHAKEBIT is a silly but hopefully-somewhat-educational journey through the history of various sound chips from old computers and consoles, using a song that anyone on the Internet should be able to recognise.

Ordered by complexity of soundchip, you can go nuts to the entire album in one go or click on your favorite and learn more about that sound setup as well as how the track was produced.

released April 1, 2013

The original full-length track, Harlem Shake, is by Baauer on the label Mad Decent. Visit him here: baauer.com

These chip tracks were arranged and produced by Inverse Phase.

Please give credit where credit is due and link to both of us if you use Shakebit.
