Bit Shifter

Few can claim to be as influential to the chip music community as New York's Joshua Davis, better known as Bit Shifter. Since 2001, Bit Shifter has been opening eyes and expanding minds, exposing people to the larger-than-life sounds that can be coaxed out of the limited hardware of the Nintendo Game Boy. He is the co-administrator of chip netlabel 8bitpeoples, co-founder of the pioneering Blip Festival event series, and his 2006 EP release "Information Chase" is widely regarded as genre-defining. Having been a part of the lineup for the inaugural 8static and the 5th anniversary festival in 2013, Bit Shifter is a returning 8static Festival performer.
