Featuring Live Chiptune from:



Chipzel is the alias of Niamh Houston, an independent Northern Irish chip-musician who indulges in the use of Gameboys to create energetic, melodic dance tracks. Through taking the original 8bit sound and manipulating it into something frantically hard-hitting, Chipzel has seen crowds of all ages turn to “raving loons”, taken right back to their days of retro gaming.

Begun initially under the pseudonym of Thank Fuscia in the fall of late 2006, 8-bit music was always a slight musical interest to the artist we now know as Skin Walker, yet never an aspirational one.

Returning to the 8-bit scene in the build up to the summer of 2010, his ideas changed, and his take on music became more justified. With an early debut album under a new name released in May 2010 for free on Sociopath Recordings entitled ‘Berserker’, a new sound was created and never left behind and the sound of the 8-bit sound chip has never been heard any clearer.

+ DJ Sets from:


An unhealthy obsession with video games from a young age never did anyone any harm, right? Ask DJ_Y4nni if you don’t believe us; he’s worked on over fifty titles since 2007 as a tester (lucky git). Nowdays when he isn’t making his own video games, he breaks out the decks, and has DJ’d many places over the years including The Krazyhouse in Liverpool, Carling Weekend Leeds Festival and AnalogueTrash in Manchester. DJ_Y4nni is repping Team MegaByte‘s DJ’s at SuperByte by bringing his own brand of off-kilter messed-up, 8 bit beats to the festival.
