Kkrusty (Mike Taylor) began composing songs on the Nintendo GameBoy in early 2008. His music mixes sometimes sweet, sometimes epic melodies, pounding, danceable rhythms, (not to mention the occasional 80's hair-metal cover) and never fails to turn any room into a frothing mess of nuclear gleeful madness!

Once described as "the uncanny valley of 808s", Chicago's FKIN IGNVNT brings forty-smashing shoulder music to the part of your brain that gets off on bass-induced panic. Also there are hi-hats.

Inspired by J-pop heaters and Anime MMOs, VenoSci creates high energy dance music on semi-antiquated handheld video game consoles.
