New York City's Bit Shifter weighs in with a blitzkrieg strike of weaponized square waves, delivered from a twin Nintendo Game Boy assault rig. Exemplifying a bracing distillation of the less-is-more philosophy, Bit Shifter embraces limitations and rejects overstated indulgences in favor of the streamlined environments of the Nanoloop and Little Sound DJ home-brew Game Boy musicmaking programs. Armed only with two 20-year-old handhelds, Bit Shifter leaves high-end computer music choking on his exhaust, bringing twice the rock with 0.002% of the processing power.

Bit Shifter co-administrates the 8bitpeoples artist collective, co-curates the annual Blip Festival, has released music on 555 Recordings, Hymen, Mirex, Ketacore, and Astralwerks, and has performed over a hundred and fifty shows worldwide.
