OK, so this record would never have been possible if it wasn't for Chris Mahoney hittin me up on myspace back in early 2009 and inspiring me and Craig Rebello (Best Defense, co collaborator and partner in crime in Seventh Gear) to play this weird electronic shit live. Thanks for making me a part of the Boston 8 Bit crew. To the rest of the B8B Crew, I love youz guyz!! Big ops to Radio Scotvoid, a close friend and collaborator who is responsible for the BEEFING up of this album, to Brandon Hood, Luis Moreno, and Andrew Kilpatrick at Chiptunes=WIN, Alpha Omega Radio, and PXL-BOT, respectively, for reaching out to me and putting my tracks on their compilations, it means the world that you guys like my stuff. Craig Rebello for showing me how to make electronic music, Danny Pryor for introducing me to chiptunes and taking me to Blip '09 with three other people in a Toyota Tercel, sounds bad but it wasn't! To Eric Brown for providing the super eurobit soundtrack to the entire drive to and from NYC that year and for rocking our socks off on stage and being a good friend in the years since. To Sabrepulse for the breakbeats on Famicom Connection, the soundtrack to my high school career, five years before I knew what chiptunes were. To Squarepusher for always being wacky. To the folks at Geekbeat Radio and Unregularradio.com
