Video games have sure evolved since those 8-bit days and you know what that means: so has its music. Wrapping up all those techy, cyber and 8-bit sounds we loved back then and still enjoy now, our gaming EDM playlist has quite a list of dubstep, electronic, house, drum and bass, glitch hop and electro tracks that'll get you in the mood to play some video games. So whether you're a Playstation, Xbox or Nintendo fan, you're sure to love these handpicked electronic gems!

Here’s a teaser:

Tokyo Machine - Pixel

If we're going to talk video games we have to start with the classics and Tokyo Machine's electronic track "PIXEL" definitely brings us back in time to those old school days of 8-bit games like The Legend of Zelda, or, for younger generations, Pokémon on the Game Boy Color. Did you know that blowing dust out of those NES cartridges to fix frozen games is just a myth? Man, were we fooled!

Uppermost - Flashback

Continuing our flashback to those childhood favorites is one of Uppermost's tracks from his album Origins. This soaring electronic track sounds like the perfect background music for platform games like Rayman or Little Big Planet. And while on the subject of platform games, who else is excited for the return of Spyro?!

Stonebank - All Night

Speeding things up just enough for racing games like Mario Kart and Super Monkey Ball, Stonebank's hardcore single "All Night" makes you feel like you're driving at full speed dodging some green shells and banana peels on the infamous Rainbow Road.

Flux Pavilion - Hold Me Close

Dubstep plus some bassy goodness is the best combination that Flux Pavilion can give to help keep us focused and feeling like an overall slaying badass in shooter games like Overwatch and Destiny.
