The Wub Machine is an online app that will automatically generate a Dubstep, Electro or Drum & Bass remix for any MP3 that you throw into it. And while it isn't particularly new, I'm still fascinated by what its little robot brain comes up with when I throw in arguably inappropriate songs, like Yakety Sax or the theme from Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence.

I just had to know what Mr. Saturn's theme sounded with a little wub, what Austin Wintory's Journey score would sound like with an Electro beat, I didn't care who I hurt in the process. Is this even Dubstep any more? I'm sure a lot of you will say it isn't. Oh well.



Dear god, what have I done?
