from WANNA HLD YR HANDHELD, VOLS. 1&2. BEATLES Tribute, released September 9, 2009
Written by Lennon/McCartney
Produced by Burnkit2600 [Justin Emerson, Brett Marshall Lefferts and Thom Uliasz]

Thom Uliasz and Justin Emerson have been experimenting with electronic music together as Burnkit2600 since 1997. The duo have created unique sonic architecture by combining circuit-bending and other instrument modifying techniques with more traditional electronic music elements. Brett Marshall Lefferts of Seed A.I. recently joined the group, bringing his mastery of melodic 8-bit video game sounds to the mix.

Given the group’s unique background, they have been widely acclaimed by hipsters and hard core music nerds of all types, prompting unusual releases like the group’s single, ‘Weapons of Past Distractions,’ heralded as the world’s first original music on an obsolete Atari 2600 cartridge. They have also created instruments for many other like-minded musicians and collectors including Boston area producer Bill Miller and Sam Spiegel, producer for Kanye West.
