2011 promises to be a big year for Melbourne chip music, and we’re kicking off the year with, not one, but two EP launches and yet another international guest!
New Melbourne label “Sounds Legit” in conjunction with Soundbytes releases the first of its 7 inch vinyl splits. Each EP will feature two amazing chipmusic artists, composing songs to a common theme. The first of these is “The Warp Drive EP” with future-core Drum and Bass ...from Texans, IAYD and Sievert. This will be the first time these splits will be on sale anywhere in the world, and with strictly a limited run, could be your only chance to own a copy of this very special release.
To celebrate the occasion, Sievert is coming all the way from Texas for your listening pleasure, playing his Warp Drive EP track Prototronic Accelerator live and loud as well as other tracks from an impressive game boy back catalogue.
Just to keep things interesting, we have another newcomer to Soundbytes – Sydney’s Abortifacient - who will be releasing the highly anticipated follow up to “Baby Fillets”, titled “My name is Abortifacient”. A regular at Sydney’s “Nerdstrobe” and the curator of “Death Rave”, Abortifacient combines 8-bit beats with circuit bent toys to create his own very special brand of glitched out industrial insanity.
Backed up by some of your favourites – cTrix, Maddest Kings Alive and Derris-Kharlan (fresh from playing in the USA!) this is a one night only opportunity to kick off 2011 with some stellar chipmusic talent
