Finland's Huoratron (Aku Raski) is undoubtedly at the forefront of the Chip-tune movement.  If you are unfamiliar with Chip-tune, the sub-sub-sub genre features 8-bit sounds, often borrowed from antiquated technologies like the original Nintendo and Commodore 64. These defining bleeps and dings are backed by intense driving bass, glitchy samples, white noise and the consistent yet simple layered percussion.  If this has you confused, just imagine the offspring of a gameboy, a fax machine, a 56k modem and an old dot-matrix printer hosting a rave.
