About Cary Nokey
It’s difficult to describe Cary Nokey with the language of contemporary music. Cary Nokey isn’t so much a band as a musical collective, a rave-esque rotation wherein the only constant is the electricity each member sparks. Born out of late nights in karaoke bars, Cary Nokey is the space where high intensity electronic dance music intersects with emotionally-
The idea to restructure the musical experience came to 8bit (named for a type of distortion, a production effect that warms a sound by lowering its fidelity) a short time into Cary Nokey’s musical life. Begun as a duo, 8bit and his original collaborator parted ways, at which point he had a realization:
There is a core to Cary Nokey, however, which encompasses 8bit and DJ ValeNtino. Introduced at a screening for Twilight years ago, 8bit and ValNtino made an immediate connection, each recognizing a musically-minded twin in the other. Ultimately, ValNtino would push Cary Nokey in a distinctdirection. Burnished by the EDM scene, ValNtino introduced that ethos into 8bit’s production. “Now we do a set that’s so high energy, it’s a whole other world. It never comes down.”

It’s not so much that Cary Nokey is anti-radio, but pro-experience, and what’s on offer for audiences today pales in comparison to the exploration and creativity present in the ‘70s and ‘80s. To truly move someone, be it bodily or emotionally, is Cary Nokey’s only goal. “You’re going to want to do something to it,” says 8bit. “You might want to do a line. You’re going to want to dance. You might want to fall in love.”
