Genericon is proud to announce the following lineup for our dance this year!
Mitomoro is a prolific 19 year old multi-genre producer from West Chester, Ohio. Since 2013, they have been featured on Nest HQ, Capcom’s arcade game “CROSSxBEATS”, The Mobile Rhythm, Game “Zyon”, and HTID Megaluf, and released music through Dynasty Records, Mob Squad Tokyo, Attack the Music, and more. In the convention circuit, Mitomoro has performed across the country taking on notable stops such as Dim Mak Studios, CUSTOMS SEATTLE & many more bringing a unique blend of Heavy Bass Music with a Hardcore twist.
Chipocrite, a.k.a. Paul Weinstein, is a chiptune musician who uses original Nintendo Game Boys, often accompanied by guitar, bass, drums, and/or other instruments, to create complex audio masterpieces. He has performed at numerous concerts, events and conventions, including the Vans Warped Tour, Blip Festival, MAGFest and AnimeNEXT; provided soundtracks for commercials — including a nationally televised GameStop ad — as well as video games and online videos; and released three EPs in addition to his first full-length album, “Wordplay,” in December 2014. He’s also the creator and instructor of Soundfly.com’s “Chiptune Crash Course” online music education series. Chipocrite is currently working on the soundtrack for “EarthNight,” a rogue-like runner game coming soon to PS4 and other devices.
Bubblegum Octopus is an unusual electronic music project from New Jersey that has been actively pushing boundaries since 2005. Under the maxim of “Conflicting ideas working together” the project shows equal love to extreme metal and saccharine j-pop. Glitchy sounds and explosively fast drums coalesce with cutesy synthpop and chiptune/VGM, sometimes venturing into over-the-top, eurobeat informed rave, and at other times becoming lost in dreamy, SNES RPG-like introspection.
Bubblegum O. has toured all over the US and to Japan, and has been a fiercely DIY effort since day one.
Often billed as “spazzpop”, to circumnavigate discussion of genres, Bubblegum Octopus is forever poised to lovingly subvert expectations.
Having been into making mixes since 2009, Boston-based DJ MaidenV began playing out in 2012. Always one for higher BPMs, MaidenV’s mixes run through the range of hard trance and hardstyle up to 170+ realm of drum n’ bass, freeform and his perennial favorite, happy hardcore. Through the years, MaidenV has found himself associated with several net collectives such as Allkore, Doujindance and SlashTRAXX. V is for many things, Versatile is one of them.
