The headliner for SoundBytes 8 is an absolute highlight of the live chipmusic scene in Tokyo.
His music is dark and gritty, just about guaranteed to get you moving and full of bass so heavy, the airlines are going to have issues with luggage restrictions when he makes the trip here from Tokyo.
We are extremely proud and excited to present Cheapshot from Japan (and the UK) and more bass than you can poke a stick at for the latest... instalment of SoundBytes. Cheapshot’s recent 8bitpeoples release, “ZOMG!!” is one of the standout ‘chipstep’ releases of recent times, and you know that if he’s a crowd pleaser in Japan, one of the major chipmusic centres of the universe – he must be good! (Go check out an interview between him and Videogame Addtiktz http://vimeo.com/17610096 )
The lineup, of course doesn’t end there, and we have some of our most crowd pleasing artists filling out the lineup. Interstate favourites, 10K (SYD), godinpants (SYD) and dot.AY (BNE) will be making their way to town, and both godinpants and dot.AY have new EPs, so plenty of new tunes for your listening pleasure. We also have local talent from cTrix, and a newcomer to SoundBytes Pselodux, who you may have seen at one of his many shows around the local traps.
This one is going to be loud, and with a line-up like this, the bass is going to be especially heavy! Get yourself along to ladida on 18/03 for what is going to be a hugely entertaining chip experience.
