Hello, it is I, xX 8 BIT CHAMPION Xx. It has been years since you have last been graced by my presence here, and it has felt like an eternity I have been away, studying and cultivating pure musical skill.

In my time away, I have climbed the mountains of Tibet and rode the waves is Oahu, Hawaii.

I have walked hundreds of miles, never allowing my Gameboy and its supplementary LSDJ cartridge out of sight.

I have met with the alpacas of the Andes and the crocodiles of the Nile; I have searched the earth and therefore my soul, and have melded the two together in seamless harmony.

In my journeys, I have spoken to men of African tribes and found the men deep in the jungles,

I have spoken to men who have loves, I have spoken to men on a journey.

It made me think, who am I? Truly, who am I?

This answer never has been simple. Where does my heart lead me, why does he drag me all I go?

The answer, never being simple, seems to only manifest itself in such a simple way.

Sitting on a beach in Thailand, locals running about, a dirt road behind me. I opened my pack at sunset and held my Gameboy with its LSDJ cartridge out. I looked at it, seeing only the sand behind. The sky was a deep orange, a kind of beauty I never had experienced. These people see it every day.

I hold the Gameboy up. It blocks the sun, its rays blotting the sky. I am reminded of a painting I adored as a boy, and the Gameboy my mother gave me when I asked for Pokemon.

In this moment I knew. I could see in Darkness that I was living in the dark. I was truly blind, and this is what allowed me to see all that I could have seen; had it not been for my willingness to see, I would be stuck in one place, never having experienced what I had, and never being able to continue onward, led by my heart.

In this moment I knew, I knew that my destiny was to create a new sound never heard before, and to use the lessons from my journey to share a small piece of elation with you all.

Months, months I have worked. My LSDJ never out of sight. And so I have returned; so I am back.

Let us listen,

And God bless xX 8 BIT CHAMPION Xx.

In fact, yes. And one can indeed discern a certain grainy sonority in my latest track, which was imparted by the sand of the beach.
