I love 8 bit music!!

I always loved the electronic music, and also I loved to play Nintendo, but now I can get both in a single awesome fusion: the 8 bit music. Thinking about that, I found the Blipfestival . Here the main topics of the event are: Archaic game and home computer hardware with a four-day event showcasing nearly 40 musicians and visual artists occupying the international low-res cutting edge.

In the Festival, Devices such as the Nintendo Entertainment System, Commodore 64, Atari ST, Nintendo Game Boy, among others, are the popular musical instruments. The Blipfestival is part of the activities of the 8bitpeoples.

The 8bitpeoples first came together in 1999 as a collective of artists sharing a common love for classic videogames and an approach to music which reflected this obsession. The primary interests were to provide quality music for free and most importantly to have fun. In the years since, they have grown in rank and expanded their goals.

From hard-pumping dance electro to atmospheric pieces, even the nostalgia of the vintage, artists like:Crystal Castles, Binarpilot and Pornophonique used this technique.
