The Sounds of SB4! (As posted on DPAD)

Hello!

It's 10k here, with the fabulous task of gathering some samples of the music you can expect to hear at Sound Bytes 4. I have heard and seen all but one of these artists before, and I am very, very excited to say the least. This is in the order on the poster (exceptions: I cannot find an 8bit Talkshow Boy recording and Able Archer is playing but not on the poster). Just click the links, which are the song names, if it wasn't obvious.

little-scale
Music sample: Come Back To Me
Seb is amazing. Pick a console and he has made music with it.

dot.AY
Music sample: Default To Paranoia
(ph)Alex writes Game Boy glitch/grime which is interactive and brutal. He has been known to tear up the mic too.

Maddest Kings Alive
Music sample: Sleepy Kisses
Fenris is half of Perth's Chrism & Fenris, go figure. He weaves beautifully rich and dynamic songs on anything from a GBA to a C64. Glitchy and brutal in a way that you would not expect.

Derris-Kharlan
Music sample: Luna
Nathan is a real badass. Period. He writes game soundtracks - if the game was "Mars Volta: Rush to the Court of the Crimson King". He plays live with a guitar, check the link for SB3 to check that out!

Astro Zombies
Music sample: All New Heights
Darcy is win. Really young dude, with bright, happy and awesomely danceable tunes. He went down like a smooth criminal at the last Sound Bytes.

Able Archer
Music sample: My Heart Will Goon (Titanic Go On!)
A wild fan-boy appears! Aaron has been at every Sound Bytes (right?). He is looking like he will be rocking out with his cock out, oh, and a guitar and the LOLs.
More: 8bc

Talkshow Boy
Adrian has done a Sound Bytes set before - but not like this. He has been a fan of Chipmusic for a long time and now he is performing some of his own! Some of you may know Talkshow for his role in Melbourne's "Keith! Party", or even better his own breakcore/rap/mashup tunes.
More: Myspace (rap)
