Boy 8-Bit

South London, US
Artist / Band / Musician
Trouble and Bass / Body Clap / Mad Decent
I (was) a young man who makes records on his computer. Now I am a slightly older man who still makes records on his computer. I was a resident and promoter at the night BODY CLAP at T-Bar a long time a go - we also did one night at Fabric, my previous entry here may have made it sound like I was a resident there, but I'm not Though I have played their many times since - and plenty of other places, I have been lucky!
I like making all sorts of music, I had a couple of other aliases on here- can you spot them? I can't remember their login details!
My name comes from the fact I used to use an Amiga to make music - they used to use 8-Bit samples. I was young at the time Hence Boy 8-Bit. It has stuck ever since. Not because I make 8-Bit music. This seems to annoy a few people.
