We’re thrilled to announce the first artist that has contributed to the tracklist in Rhythm Control 2!
Bit Shifter is one of the front figures of modern Chip Tunes music. He’s based in New York City, and explores high-impact, low-res music produced using primitive gear and synthesis as a deliberate aesthetic choice. In a distillation of the less-is-more philosophy, Bit Shifter operates with a standard Nintendo Game Boy as a means of exploring the aesthetics of economy, pushing minimal hardware to its maximum. He is also in it for the lolz.
Bit Shifter has previously contributed with music to several other games. In Rhythm Control 2 we’ve been able to include “Activation Theme”, a fast and energetic tune that we hope you’ll enjoy as much as we do. You can listen to it HERE.
For more info about him, have a look at bit.shifter.net or visit 8bitpeoples, a record label featuring a lot of other interesting chip musicians, run by mr Bit Shifter himself. He also organizes the Blip Festival at different parts of the planet every now and then.
