Pete Cannon: 8-bit Only E​P

It’s quite common to see producers online asserting the fact that you do not need fancy equipment in order to make good music. The strength of the results lies within the talent and skills you possess, not the amount you’ve spent on your gear. If anyone needed proof of this, they need look no further than Pete Cannon, a producer who not only gets the most banging results from working with this older equipment, he actually prefers them over their more modern successors. This has never been demonstrated better than on his latest release, the 8-bit Only EP, which includes four new tracks that were all created using classic Amiga and Octamed equipment. The tracks all seize on that 90’s hardcore-jungle-DnB sound that Pete has been perfecting over the last few years, which anyone who follows him on social media will no doubt be familiar with. You can hear the EP for yourself below and there are also vinyl options available, including a limited edition bundle that comes with a sample pack on floppy disc. All of which can be found via the N4 Records Bandcamp.
