Dj CUT MAN @ OTAKON 2010

3 08 2010

Dj CUT MAN and MC DEATH BEAR at OTAKON 2010Big news for Moving Box’s own Chris & Christian ( aka Dj CUT MAN and MC DEATH BEAR ): This weekend they headed down to Baltimore, MD to attend OTAKON, the east coast’s largest Anime and Japanese Culture festival attending approximately 30,000 people. The convention is named after the Japanese word “Otaku” which is used to refer to people obsessed with Japanese animation (anime), Japanese comics (manga) or Video Games.

This was a big milestone for Dj CUT MAN, Chris’ project proudly sporting the tagline of “Video Game DJ,” as it was a live performance in front of thousands of Otakon goers. Dj CUT MAN played his new mix, DUBTROPOLIS (available soon on SoundCloud), a collection of Dub-Step influenced Chiptune songs. If none of those words make sense to you, here’s a song that exemplifies the musical style. MC Death Bear became a true Master of Cerimonies that night, hyping the crowd and providing vocal interludes and shout outs throughout the set.

MC Death Bear has been creating art for Dj CUT MAN for months, and is responbile for the killer flyers for the series of shows at Ithaca’s own Waffle Frolic. Dj CUT MAN has created three full-length mix albums so far and his fourth is expected in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more.

Dj CUTMAN Video Game DJ Set @ RETURN OF THE DEATH BEAR

8 02 2010

Moving Box audio engineer Chris Davidson AKA Dj CUTMAN performed his first DJ set @ RETURN OF THE DEATH BEAR last week. After discovering the pimp-awesome music site SoundCloud, Chris posted his set online for anyone to listen to it (this means you!) He mixes familiar game tunes  and covers with high quality arrangement and production. This isn’t an 8-bit orgy of square waves, all these tracks are all well-produced pieces of music. Chris says:

“I’m bringing something new to the table, only the best in video game remixes and chip-tune music. Remixes of classic game tunes have been being produced for a long time, but only a few tracks shine in the sea of mediocre renditions of super compositions. I’ve been collecting game music for over ten years, and with DJ Cutman I hope to showcase the best of the best of this awesome music
