"8GB (pronounced 'eight gee bee') really set things off. [...] The audience began to rave and embrace the sound. His music sounded like European electro-hop. In fact, you almost forgot that he was doing this with just a Game Boy." - Steven Roberts on yourhere.mtv.com

"Here, the evident: Akira is a hyperkinetic 'brain', one of those that circulate the booths and screens in venues without rest. From the most underground nights in Buenos Aires (including his own, Revolt) to mega-festivals of electronic music in South America, like Skol Beats, TIM Festival, Creamfields and Onedotzero, [...] 8GB is the most representative figure in Latin America of what is defined worldwide as '8-bit culture' " - Mariana Guzzante & Patricia Slukich on Los Andes newspaper

"We just thought that we had enough of gameboy music. Most of the times it's just the same tunes. Suddenly Akira from Buenos Aires contacts us that he's around. His audio visual performances already rocked acclaimed festivals like Creamfields and Onedotzero. They are visual astonishing. And it's just nice music." - ZXZW Festival

Bio

8GB is an audiovisual set developed in 2004 as a natural flow of Akira's activities both visual and musical, and his fixation with old computer hardware utilized in modern working environments. Merged into his kiken.corporation "world", with the help of Bubblo on the visuals, 8GB aims towards creating currently listenable beats with old computer data, making an urban blend that can be enjoyed by most any audience interested in fresh new sounds while still retaining appeal for the bleep-obsessed nut. Starting in Argentina and pretending to gain 'world audiovisual domination' while 'hidden beneath secret identities' as 8-Bit Security Agents, Akira and Blo keep on recruiting followers to their New 8-Bit World Order.

8GB has performed in the most varied situations, from the best microparties like Microdisko Stockholm to the top of the commercial electronic music circuit in events like Creamfields, South American Music Conference and Onedotzero, passing through the one and only, world reknowned, most important event of 8-Bit Music in the world, the Blip Festival in New York City, USA.

Currently in their first Europe-wide tour, the 8GB project fastly approaches its final goal.
