For more than 10 years, Goto80 has been abusing 8-bit computers to make some of the most unbelievably out of control tunes in the scene. His debut 8bitpeoples release showcases his diverse styles to great effect.

Goto80 is clearly not interested in standing still, he continues to push the boundaries of sounds today, and we don't imagine him stopping anytime soon.

Now, some things are better left unspoken. But that is beside the point. Yet, the point is not the issue here. The issue is omitted and the reason forgotten. Memories may become corrupted but beauty remains. Still, that is no excuse for acting blind ... or maybe it is ... what you have lost might not just be your memory.
Twilight Electric's "Meanings" touches on three important aspects of life. The Self Portrait, gaining an understanding of yourself in the most raw and honest form. True Fidelity, being dedicated to one sincere cause and sticking with it, through thick and thin. And Stepping Back, taking a moment to stop and look at all that you have achieved and endured. "Meanings" is presented through a triad of instrumental movements and based around the casio vl-1. In memory of Twilight Electric and Nullsleep's father, Todd Fliss 1958-2004.
