Death Rave: Chipmusic Warehouse Party


ALLCAPS Records Presents:
Death Rave: Chiptune Warehouse Party.
Featuring an 8-Bit Arcade, bringing redundant gaming consoles back to life for one night only.

After recently annihilating Blip Fest in New York, cTrix (Melbourne) will pummel you with low-fi house from his two Commodore Amigas. Guaranteed you won't stay still.

Also fresh from a US tour, Dot.AY (Brisbane) brings twisted CHIPBASS wobbles and evolving reggaeton rhythms.

Abortifacient and Bankai double team your arse with a back to back versus set of electro, drumstep, and utterly devastating basslines.

Vicious Cyclist's discordant melodies, hard breaks, and positive attitude towards motorists will leave you feeling warm and confused.

godinpants with a little g is a punk. His epic wall of distorted doom bass and gameboy beats will leave your pants heavier.

Straight outta Cronulla, Gentle Hurst prefers you.

$10
9pm - 3am
SAT 30 JULY
Midian
19 Sydney St, Marrickville
Near Sydenham Station

****Same Night as the 10k gig at Oxford Arts... Just go to both!!!*****


Bankai vs Abortifacient "4 litres of hope"



Sydney Gameboy everything-core voodoo priest Abortifacient teamed up with beat and bass samurai Bankai from Melbourne and together they have created this absolute monster of a track.
