The VIRUS Empire will perform live at SuperByte 2014!
Hailing from the land of cheese rolling and shin kicking (Gloucestershire), The VIRUS Empire is a twenty-one year old chiptune musician and video game sound designer.
First creating chip music in 2010 after purchasing an old LSDJ cartridge and modifying his own Gameboy, he has been hooked ever since. From these early days he has gone on to release three EP’s, numerous singles and play shows across the UK alongside names such as Nordloef, Whitely and The Tin Foil Hat Brigade!
His music is largely influenced by 90’s/00’s dance music, taking inspiration from artists such as Lasgo, Ian van Dahl and Ultrabeat. It’s nostalgic, it’s uplifting, it gets you moving and puts a smile on your face. Live performances from The VIRUS Empire are fist pumping, dance filled events thanks to the combination of chip sounds mixed with modern production tools and effects from Ableton Live.
