Chip Bit Day 2019

June 15 @ 2:00 pm - 9:30 pm

This is the 4th outing of Chip Bit Day, a chiptune music event that will once again celebrate all things 8bit, electronic & nostalgic. Hitting Manchester on Saturday 15th June at Aatma, Chip Bit Day will be hosting great artists, such as Monodeer, STU, HarleyLikesMusic and more!

Artists
As usual I plan on making the line-up as best as it can be, and have already booked some incredible musicians:

Monodeer [NL]
Monodeer is the alter ego of Dutch electronic musician Mark van den Heuvel, who combines his eternal love for 8-bit, hard hitting beats and basslines into inimitable live sets.

Electronic music producer and DJ, STU was born and raised in the hometown of lsd, Basel, Switzerland. Colored by the sounds of vintage gear and home computers, his work is a highly energetic blend of various musical styles created within the hardware limitations of the Atari ST and its internal beep maker.
