Melt Channel is a high energy, power packed fusion of electric guitar jams and lo-fi Nintendo console vibes.
Saturday (Aug 9th) night artists:
Hailing from Philadelphia, Storm Blooper uses original Nintendo Gameboys running LSDJ to make music you can twerk to.
Solarbear is a progressive rock composer from Lexington, KY who creates his works from Nintendo Gameboys. With a strong grounding in both metal and electronic dance, his music combines with an aggressive live performance to get both your feet and your fists moving.
Auxcide (PHL) is a chiptune artist who uses multiple gameboys along with other hardware to create vast soundscapes with driving passages through starfields.
Sunday (Aug 10th) night artists:
Masikus began his musical career as a drummer. He now combines his love for chiptune, hip-hop, ambient music, downtempo and video games into darker, original compositions and video game music remixes.
Ap0c is a project by Philadelphia-based musician Steve Lakawicz. He uses vintage game system audio combined with tuba to explore social encounters, interpret haunting memories, and expose visceral emotions.
Zantilla is the progressive chip-metal outlet of self-taught composer, producer, and keyboardist Adrian Shegstad. Combining elements of chiptune, modern prog metal, and electronica, Zantilla manages to ground itself into multiple scenes. Adrian first made a name for himself as remix artist “Sleeper Express” and brings his production techniques and synth heavy style to Zantilla’s energetic aesthetic. His debut album, “Encounters” displays this energy at it’s highest as it takes listeners through a sci-fi inspired adventure. Currently, he is writing collaborating with titans of the chiptune, and djent metal scene, as well as porducing his next release, “Color-Motion”.
CHIPwin and Play It Loud are also helping to run our retro gaming room with classic consoles and TV’s provided through the Orlando Science Center, because SCIENCE!!
I should probably also point out that with these amazing artists joining up, our total number of performers has now surpassed 70.
And as always, thank you for your support!!!!
