8GB is an audiovisual producer and DJ from Buenos Aires, Argentina, making music since 1994 and performing it live since 2004. The project came out from Akira's activities both visual and musical and his fixation with old computer hardware restrictions exploited for maximal creative output, as well as his relation to the computer arts underground of the early 90s.
His early influences of Chicago House, classic Electro and Detroit Techno can be heard today in his sets and productions, which are loaded with rhythmic bass-driven, house-inspired, futuristic tunes that flirt with his inherent latin influences.
Live, he performs as an audiovisual set, with super-synchronized visuals that go with the music and with a minimal, non-linear narrative that delivers a live cinema experience.
Having performed in the most varied events around half of the planet, from New York to Amsterdam to Latvia to Japan, from tiny microparties to Blip Festivals, for 10 to 1000 people, 8GB "mixes the high frequency beeps of old computers with a good hiphop beat, minimal techno or hard house music that Dave Clarke would probably enjoy, with demonic beats sometimes almost equal to those of The Prodigy" (3VOOR12, Dutch music press).
Now relocated in London and ready to rock Europe!
