OG Darkmatter scratchmaster Baseck generally likes to abuse his gameboys and turntables equally in live performance. But in this clip here, his gameboys dominate the mix as they spew out large doses of pounding noisy 8-bit bliss.
Baseck live at Darkmatter’s 10th anniversary show, Los Angeles, 9 July 2011.
Baseck celebrated his becoming one year closer to being a grumpy old man by organizing a show in some warehouse in an industrial section of LA on the border between Chinatown and Alhambra. Of course, he whipped out the gameboys and played a set himself, and here’s a taste.
Baseck live in Los Angeles, 13 August 2011.
