Please join us in welcoming the amazing Kenobit to the SuperByte 2015 main stage!
Kenobit likes fast kickdrums, flashing lights and evil riffs. After a previous life as a punk drummer, he reincarnated in a chiptune evangelist, playing around the world with a Game Boy and a headbanging attitude. Hailing from Milano, Italy, his style is influenced by classic VGM, metal, seizure warnings and hoppy beers. Under 180 BPM it’s not true love.

After smashing visuals at 2014’s pre-party, bitrituals will return to SuperByte 2015 on the main stage!
Hailing from the rainy streets of Manchester, bitrituals (Dan Hett) is a visual artist, creative coder, software destroyer and all-round computer heretic. He specialises in firing vibrant strobing pixels directly into retinas, mostly by writing monstrous amounts of shitty code at very high speeds until something colourful comes out.
As a one-man crusade against boring programming neckbeards, bitrituals causes colourful noisy trouble with code at every opportunity: writing videogames at extremely speeds, live-coding glitchcore visuals for hours at a time, and generally destroying and rebuilding the guts of his computer until it does something interesting – then usually throwing it away (the code, not the computer).
After hitting the SuperByte pre-party last year, bitrituals will be back in 2015 to destroy eyeballs from the main stage. He’ll be livecoding algorithmic audio-reactive visuals completely from scratch, powered by beats, bleeps and bass.
As well as performing at SuperByte, bitrituals will also be delivering a workshop of live coded visuals as part of SB2015’s expo segment.

Galaxy Wolf, the shit hot space pilot, and kick ass antihero protagonist of an awesome game that does not exist, crash landed on earth in the year two thousand and something, but it was totally not even his fault. He is a frightening but usually good natured extraterrestrial being with an impressive vertical leap and penchant for running music software on vintage computer games consoles. His favourite kind of waves are; square, sine, gravity, and mexican.
His debut E.P was released on the Cheap Beats label in 2014. He is currently working on more material for them as well as some other projects including a release for Thebasebit Recordings. He has enjoyed the pleasure of testing the structural integrity of stages across the UK and all the way to Lexington Kentucky for BRK Fest 2013.

Once a humble attendee of the notorious EINDBAAS parties, RoccoW became hooked on the tunes of chip around early 2010. Never would he have guessed that, after playing the Open Stage, he would be allowed onto the main stage of the party he had had grown to love! He soon joined the Dutch chiptune collective and would go on to perform his funky electronic tunes and strangely charismatic dance moves across the border. Inspired by everything good ‘n groovy – from the uplifting melodies of swing to the relentless rhythms tech house – RoccoW delivers a versatile performance with an abundance of silly faces!
