Pixel8ter is a child of the 8-bit generation. Growing up with an NES and spending his time in arcades, he soaked up the sights and sounds of the world of videogames. After learning to manipulate a keyboard, he began making electronic music and exploring every sub-genre imaginable. Once he found the chiptune scene, he knew he was home. Music filled with low-bit sounds and classic hardware like Gameboys brought him right back to his childhood. Combining this influence with styles such as dubstep, electro-house, and drum and bass, he takes music to a new level of intensity. With a sound full of heavy rhythms and deep bass, Pixel8ter makes music that makes you move and a live show that is dynamic and energetic.
