BitchTapes: 8-Bit Hits
Michelle Sternberger is a chiptune artist—she makes intricate electronic music using retro gaming consoles and 8-bit computers.
To mark the release of a new album featuring her songs, Tribute to Depeche Mode: Enjoy the Science (which came out June 10th from chiptune collective 8-Bit Operators), Sternberger made this 8-bit mixtape especially for Bitch. That's her dishing up a baking tray of Gameboys on the cover of the mix, which is a collection of songs from Sternberger's two bands, ComputeHer and 8-Bit Weapon, as well as songs she chose to highlight from 8-Bit Operators' work. Sternberger used a Commodore 64, Nintendo Entertainment System, electronic drums, and vocoded vocals to make the songs on this tape. One of the highlights: her chiptune version of Depeche Mode's song "Strangelove."
