Boy 8-Bit’s name implies lo-fi electro skronk, but don’t be fooled: His moniker is just a relic from his youthful days making music on an Amiga. He actually produces playful, melodic dance jams that appeal to DJ impresarios from Pete Tong to Diplo. Mad Decent released the Fabric resident’s “The Suspense is Killing Me” and his new Baltic Pine EP is making waves on This Is Music. With Trouble & Bass DJs Drop the Lime, Star Eyes, and the Captain.
