Distortled Box és un projecte audiovisual que funciona desde l'any 2007. Els seus 6 integrants, Degon, Nude Boy, Ralp, Sala, Snail i Weldio s'encarreguen de generar música i visuals exclusivament amb tecnología 8 Bit. Algunes consoles com la Nintendo Game Boy, Nintendo NES, Commodore 64 i Sega Master System son bàsicament les seves principals fonts de sò, utilitzant en elles diferents programes com el LSDJ, Nanoloop, MidiNES, Mssiah, Cybertracker, JCH, etc. Aquest colectiu, afincat a Barcelona, es consolida a partir de la construcció d'un primer altaveu portàtil muntat a sobre d'un carretó de la compra. Amb un amplificador, dos altaveus y una batería de cotxe, aquest sound system portàtil també anomenat Distortled Box pot gaudir d'una gran facilitat de transport i moviment per poder oferir al públic de tot arreu una autèntica mini rave 8 Bit improvitzada. Actualment s'està construint la segona versió d'aquest famós altaveu portàtil, ara amb un tamany molt més gran, més bateríes, un subwoofer, llums psicoldèlics i molta més potència.

DEGON

After spending his childhood playing with the old Nintendos, his love for low res graphics and 8 bit sounds went further in 2007, when he started as a chiptune player. Perhaps a Street Fighter II's overdose or his "Maquina Total" CD collection have been the causes of his actual epic-tronic dance style. Member of Device and NGFX, he tries to find enough time to work as an audiovisual comunicator, develope his artistic side in design, street art and instalation, and produce chip music with a Nintendo Game Boy and a LSDJ. DMG colors: Grey, Yellow and Green.

SNAIL

Snail begins as a chiptune musician in 2007, being member of Distortled Box team. He is also an audiovisual artist, member of Device, Tricoma and NGFX collectives. His pasion for vintage and obsolete technologies and retro-gaming are strong influences in his 8-bit tunes, created and composed on a Gameboy using LSDJ. He experiments with circuit bending 8-bit machinery, such the Sega Master System, to create live visuals for the shows. Always working and researching for new sounds, techniques, glitches, modifications and machines to manipulate. Snail appears on the first Distortled Box compilation.
