Chip Bit Day 2019
The Peer Hat, Manchester
Saturday, 15 Jun 2019
15:00 – 22:30
This is the 4th outing of Chip Bit Day, a chiptune music event that will once again celebrate all things 8bit, electronic & nostalgic. Hitting Manchester on Saturday 15th June at Aatma, Chip Bit Day will be hosting great artists, such as Monodeer, STU, HarleyLikesMusic and more!
As usual I plan on making the line-up as best as it can be, and have already booked some incredible musicians:
Monodeer is the alter ego of Dutch electronic musician Mark van den Heuvel, who combines his eternal love for 8-bit, hard hitting beats and basslines into inimitable live sets.
Electronic music producer and DJ, STU was born and raised in the hometown of lsd, Basel, Switzerland. Colored by the sounds of vintage gear and home computers, his work is a highly energetic blend of various musical styles created within the hardware limitations of the Atari ST and its internal beep maker.
Based in Sheffield, HarleyLikesMusic creates fat bassy music on a Gameboy Advance SP with LSDJ.
Based in southernly coast of the UK, Protodome creates a chipfunk, a creative blend of chiptunes, funk and jazz.
Dirty Clide [UK]
Lea Ward, AKA Dirty Clide is a multi instrumentalist, vocalist, live performer and producer. His music features a variety of massive beats, phat bass and retro 8bit game sounds, mixed with his live chaotic grungy guitar vocals.
Hailing from Leipzig, Shortee makes beats on Gameboys, whilst simultaneously scratching vinyl on a turntable.
Kojin is a Manchester based chiptune artist who relies on using Gameboys and other devices to eclectic EDM music.
Inspired by early Chiptune and 8-bit music, singer and producer Nyokeë presents an energetic mix of synth heavy Kawaii Bass and retro game sounds, wrapped in electrifying visuals and Harajuku street fashion.
Myths & Monsters [UK]
Myths and Monsters use a Gameboy Advance to power analog synthesizers, with influences including the early electronica of the 1970s, film soundtracks of the 1980s and 1990s dance music.
Myths and Monsters
Based in southwest England, Jellybear fuzes his love of chiptunes with other genres such as speedcore, gabber hardtek and psytrance.
Idiotbox has been creating visuals for Chip Bit Day since 2016 to critical acclaim and is back once again to coat the venue in energetic 8-bit infused graphics.
Harnessing the power of computer-glitch for his own psychedelic ends, TechnologyIsEvil creates graphical mash-ups that will melt your eyes, your brains and the wall they're projected on.
On the indiegogo page we have plenty of extras to buy from t-shirts, compilations and the yearly lanyard!
