Introduction: 8BITches "What's Your Gear" - Chip Hop Created on Gameboys and Homemade Vocoders


8BITches
What is Chip Hop? It's Big Pick Zel-rhymes/circuit scratching, 8BIT Ché-Gameboy/revolutionary beats and Li'L BIT-vocoder/casio vl-tone/moog. It's pop music that has geek appeal.. And mass appeal. It's a new era, a fusion--8BITches are the only people rapping about video games , the blue screen of death, online lifestyle over original beats and sounds - no sampling. It's the 8 Bit sound track for the online generation.

Ill direct you to around 1:50... he runs a program called "Little sound DJ" which is a synth and sequencer for the gameboy :)

The video on Myspace, http://www.myspace.com/8bitcheschiphop , has definite flavors of MC900 Ft. Jesus. I think that's a hell of a compliment. Keep it up!

We just shot a show in Portland, ME last friday and as soon as it's ready, we'll upload it! For now, go to http://www.myspace.com/redcarrecords and listen to 'Gravemind' from 8BITches. Their myspace page links off there, too.
