Chiptune Damage: The Jackson 5 Go 8-bit

If you couldn’t make it to 8Static Fest in Philly, you missed Ro-Bear's performance of “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5. But don’t worry! He’s uploaded the jam into the digital ether of the Internet so that I can be consumed and digested by the earholes of all.

If you dig that, be sure to check out our video interview with Ro-Bear HERE and this clip of him covering Cher’s “Believe” at 8Static in Philly a few months back HERE.

Chiptune Damage: Ro-Bear Covers Cher At 8Static
Here’s a clip from last night’s 8Static event in Philly featuring Ro-Bear doing an epic LSDJ rendition of Cher’s “Do You Believe In Love?”.
WARNING! A huge sing-along approaches around the 3:09 mark.

Ro-Bear was rad enough to let us film a short Q&A segment which I’ll try and have up later this week. In the meantime, just keep re-watching the clip above and bobbing your nugget.
