We're back again. The best of Perth bleeps and beats will be joined by frens from across the null.


Tom Foolery And The Family Jewellery is a force to be reckoned with. A master of all things beats and chairman of the mysterious and infamous megacorp Teledildonix. TFATFM has released banging tracks on chip music heavyweight labels CheapBeats, Chiptunes=WIN and Forest, and has made appearances at Sound Bytes, Square Sounds, and Federation Square. You can expect complex melodies and high energy arrangements played live on an original Gameboy DMG. Definitely not to be missed.

Expats Chr5m and Fenris need no introduction as they were a mainstay of the Perth scene for years before Fenris made the journey to the East to spread his teachings. Both accomplished acts on their own, but when their powers combine, they are a powerhouse of weird, wonky, lofi sounds using a collection of electronics such as C64, gameboy advanced and raspberry pi running custom code.

Classic Mistake has been destroying dance floors across Perth for years with their trademark deep and emotive house grooves wrangled from the humble Gameboy Advanced. Fresh back from a triumphant main stage set at this year's Melbourne Square Sounds and a new EP released on japanese label CheapBeats. You can be assured of some good feels and fun times.

Turncoat is still a new act in the Perth chip scene, but their technique is already powerful. Their hectic beats and melodies will have you defecting.

Polite Society has been busy working on their live skills, both experimental and danceable. Their sound tends to be dark and hypnotic, borrowing from industrial, ebm and techno. This will be their first full nanoloop set. … oloop-prac
