Rainbowdragoneyes: This dangerous, sinewy and hirsute 8-bit mega champion spends his days intoxicated, bathing in the blood of his enemies and forging molten steel blades of malevolence in the high unholy name of Sha'maoth. Since the year 200X, Eric W. Brown has been bringing countless nations through sheer force to their willing and grateful knees through the relentless and raw power of the DANCE DANCE DANCE. Rainbowdragoneyes, thought to have been long dead, has been resurrected at full throttle and with maximum torque to cram the catchiest possible melodies into your brain and hold them there as long as necessary. Using a single game boy and the most extreme ultimate thunder of the universe, RDE casts everyone into the lake of party til death for life.
Square Wail: Square Wail is Matthew and Rebecca Kenall running an assortment of handhelds. They like fat beats with old timey melodies and try to infuse their music with such. Hailing from Seattle they are coming to the East Coast for the first time (except for once when Rebecca had a layover at JFK).
Oven Rake: Just as confused as the others, Oven Rake was that kid you remember talking to once in High School. He was in a band, and your friend dragged you to their first show. You ran into him later when he ordered some black coffee at your work.He likes what you did with your hair. Don't feel embarrassed, no one in this small town has made it to the big time yet.
Wet Mango: Wet Mango is Cristina Fuentes's solo gameboy project started in 2008. She also has a project with Baseck called Sonic Death Rabbit which is chiptune based. Currently Wet Mango is using two GameBoy Color's with LSDJ, The Korg DS-10, and a small synthesizer. She's a sucker for the four to the floor and really wanted to have a project less about performance, more focused on programming, but still containing a wide range of vocals. Freestyle, Hip Hop, Acid, Industrial, Gabber and all other kinds of electronic based music combine unconsciously in her beats. She loves simplicity and the thick yet separated layers of pop music, which explains the more dance feel to this project. But because of her love for experimental electronics it's still on the dirty, glitchy, broken up, and heavy side. Why the name Wet Mango? You betta ask somebodies.
Gideon is an old lady, she goes to bed at nine o'clock in her nighty
with her night cap and her cup of tea. she is an old ukrainian lady
who smells of borscht, and eats pirogi’s on a daily basis and likes to
go to socials and likes to spend a lot of money on things, and that’s
what downtown Gideon is. Its just this gaping hole that goes to bed at
nine o’clock. the town hall leads rolling through the city. the vacant
store fronts that used to be just so many.. interesting and cool
places to go are just ghetto cash checking shops. bargain bin garbage
places. that’s what Gideon is, an old lady in her nighty who goes to
bed at nine o’clock and doesn’t like the music too loud. kids start
having fun she has to rap on the window and tell them to stop and keep
it down because she has to get up early. she’s got to get to her job.
kids start having fun she comes around with her little house coat on,
tapping on the door telling the kids to keep it down. thats what
