Show Types / Styles

8-bit Chip Party Time (Show with banter)

Gameboys!  SNES!  Amiga!  Sega!  Let me know the event and it’s context and I’ll pull a set together to match.  This will span a number of styles and is for a more open minded fun loving crowd who also enjoy a boogie.  Also let me know if you want visuals as that can easily be organised.

Set examples:  Blip Festivals (AU / JP / USA),  Spike Hill (NYC),  PAX (AU),  Square Sounds (AU / JP),  AVCON (Ade)


Amiga / Oldskool House (Live continuous Set)

More serious dance times to a huge variety of tunes.  Legit oldskool house, acidtek, drum’n’bass, rave and breaks all with a lofi-groove.  Pretty accessible with lots of cheeky samples and drops.  I generally go with the energy of the room and try and align more with the other performances around me.  While I might drop in an 8-bit track off a Gameboy or Sega – it’ll be way more accessible for a club / average croud.  The tunes won’t stop!  The feedback I get from random punters who can’t figure out is almost always positive, if a little amusing.

Set examples: CALH (NZ), Loop Bar (Melb), Hard Kandy (Melb), Fringe Festival (Melb / Ade), Analog Attack (London), Evoke (Germany)


Gatari + conceptual

Yes, I still have the gAtari (most asked question!)  It’s an amusing and party rockin’ thing that is fun to watch but it is not the easiest device to get going.  I can travel with it and bust out the original tunes I released on the Youtube, but usually keep it for decently paid shows and where there is an engineer / soundcheck present.

It’s buggy – and occasionally doesn’t work!  But that’s all part of the fun.  See the gAtari description for more info.

Set Examples: PAX Australia, Blip Festival NYC and Japan, Square Sounds Australia, Eindbaas in the Netherlands and launch in Mexico City.


Music for Games / Films / Oculus Rift

Yup!  Have created music for various projects over the years from games to films & documentaries.  Also create & mix sound for broadcast.

Deep House / House / Non chip

Work in progress side project.  Will eventually fall under a different alias – feedback has been great so far and my bootlegs have played in front of 5000+ people 😉  Stay tuned for this one!!

Play my launch party? / event? / wedding?

I’ve had great fun doing shows like this in the past but can only play my own tunes as I’m not a DJ!  I don’t have equipment that plays MP3s… only MODs and cart roms.  It works best when most of the crowd understand what I’m doing rather than random drunks wanting top 40.  I generally don’t play low-key shows that often, but if the vibe feels right, then it can certainly happen.

I also own a QSC PA system, mics, a couple of DI’s and a mixer.  All gear is electrically tagged to Aussie safety standards, etc.

For launches / events I generally like to understand the background and context of how I’ll fit in.  This shapes what I will play.  I also request some standard equipment to make my life easier & ensure a smooth show.  Events I’ve played include Freeplay, PAX Australia, AVCON, Blip Festival (NYC), Square Sounds Japan, Evoke (DK), Dark Mofo (Tas), Fringe Festival, Eindbaas (NL) and Super Byte (UK).


Can you DJ my request tunes?

Not really.  I use my consoles / retro computers to play my own remixes and tracks. That’s the point!  If there’s a game soundtrack for a certain machine I can probably download it and compile it to playback, but I need warning.

I do have an extensive vinyl collection of  funk / soul, late 80’s house, UK hard house and hard techno.  I’ll happily play a set of songs that virtually no one in the room will know (this is why I’m not a DJ)  I can cover everything from chill grooves to super hard bangers.  This might be what you are after… and yes, I’ve played many raves / renegade side-stages over the years.  But it ain’t chiptune at this point 😛
