The Sounds of SB4!

Monday, June 29, 2009 0

It's 10k here, with the fabulous task of gathering some samples of the music you can expect to hear at Sound Bytes 4. I have heard and seen all but one of these artists before, and I am very, very excited to say the least. This is in the order on the poster (exceptions: I cannot find an 8bit Talkshow Boy recording and Able Archer is playing but not on the poster). Just click the links, which are the song names, if it wasn't obvious.

Music sample: Come Back To Me
Seb is amazing. Pick a console and he has made music with it.

Music sample: Default To Paranoia
(ph)Alex writes Game Boy glitch/grime which is interactive and brutal. He has been known to tear up the mic too.

Maddest Kings Alive
Music sample: Sleepy Kisses
Fenris is half of Perth's Chrism & Fenris, go figure. He weaves beautifully rich and dynamic songs on anything from a GBA to a C64. Glitchy and brutal in a way that you would not expect.

Music sample: Luna
Nathan is a real badass. Period. He writes game soundtracks - if the game was "Mars Volta: Rush to the Court of the Crimson King". He plays live with a guitar, check the link for SB3 to check that out!

Astro Zombies
Music sample: All New Heights
Darcy is win. Really young dude, with bright, happy and awesomely danceable tunes. He went down like a smooth criminal at the last Sound Bytes.

Able Archer
Music sample: My Heart Will Goon (Titanic Go On!)
A wild fan-boy appears! Aaron has been at every Sound Bytes (right?). He is looking like he will be rocking out with his cock out, oh, and a guitar and the LOLs.
More: 8bc

Talkshow Boy
Adrian has done a Sound Bytes set before - but not like this. He has been a fan of Chipmusic for a long time and now he is performing some of his own! Some of you may know Talkshow for his role in Melbourne's "Keith! Party", or even better his own breakcore/rap/mashup tunes.

Able Archer

We are very excited to add another artist to our line-up.
Able Archer
has gone from being pretty much the biggest fan of Soundbytes, up the front getting into it at every gig to an artist in his own right. His latest track is fun a lot of fun and sounds amazing so we can't wait to have him play for us on the night!

Get excited people!

whit3nois3 vs Soundbytes

Wednesday, June 17, 2009 2
Melbourne institution whit3nois3 is back and ready for battle. Enemy lines have been drawn for a one night Battle Royal, facing off against the insurgents, Soundbytes.

For the creatures of the night who love dark, grinding noisy noise you wont be disappointed.

So bring your lo-tech arsenal and choose your allies wisely, for there can be only one.

Retrotech soldiers such as DOT.Ay, 10k Freemen & Their Families and Celsius will be fronting the assault. $10 will get you unlimited plays.

The new poster is out

Tuesday, June 16, 2009 3
Okay, so it's already been revealed at various places all over the internet, but that's because we were out of town over the weekend and very excited to get our sexy new poster out and so it's hit the interwebs.

So without further adieu...

We're still getting some more artists on board, and some special guests that you'll only hear about on the night. Oh, and for those of you wondering who this Doctor Dollar Dollar guy is? And where 10K is on the bill? Well, all will be revealed on the night.

Don't forget whit3 nois3 on the 18th at Blue Velvet featuring a very special 8-bit edition of their bi-monthly night.

Two more pieces of news.

Monday, June 1, 2009 0
We have confirmed that our good friend, Talkshow Boy is going to be debuting some new 8bit tracks at the gig on the 17th which we are extremely excited about and very proud to be the first ones to bring to you. Talkshow Boy, as you may or may not know is behind Melbourne's own Keith!Party who just recently played a residency at the Evelyn. His Keith!Party tunes are packed with impressive rhymes and kickin' beats so we're thrilled to have him on the bill.

Second of all, it looks like we're going to be running a very special SoundBytes gig inconjunction with Melbourne demo party crew Syntax on Halloween night and it should be HUGE. It's still a while away so we don't have many details yet but will definitley have more to share later in the year
