Chip Music -- an avenue of audio and visual exploration for artists choosing to adopt vintage video games as a deliverate, aesthetic choice -- has enjoyed enormous success for over a decade on the East Coast with world-class events like The Blip Festival, Pulsewave and recent newcomer, Estatic. For the first time ever, Data Beez is spreading those same addictive, low-tech sounds across the West Coast. This is an East meets West event: Minusbaby, Paris, and Fx6Ex6 prerepsent New York City while Trash80, Starpause, Crashfaster and Daniel Rehn represent California. It signals an evolving movement and sets a precedent for the future of chip music on the West Coast.
