Techno Mage Bit Shifter continues to cement a name in the chip demo scene with yet another phenomenal album. While Closed System Blues explores a range of emotion, the album takes on a darker tone than the artist's earlier work. That said, fans of Bit Shifter will recognize the masterful sound design and snappy songwriting in a heartbeat. Favorite track: The New Normal.

vaporstack It is incredibly clear that Josh has a deep appreciation of reality and all its inhabitants. There has always been grace and positivity in his music and I am profoundly happy this is released. What a treasure. Favorite track: The Butterfly.

cted Excellent, distinctive drum & bass (3, 5, 6, 9) and a nice, more moderately-paced thumper (7). The rest is mostly not my thing.

Bit Shifter Brooklyn, New York

NYC's Bit Shifter has been among those leading the charge in the global underground movement known as chipmusic, exploring high-impact, low-res music produced using primitive synthesis as a deliberate aesthetic choice.
