Twin Souls – Dust: An Elysian Tail – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch – Hyperduck Soundworks (Chris Geehan, Dan Byrne-McCullough)
Inspired by some music from our past Gameboy Advance episode, we present a mix of great liquid drum and bass video game music! There are tracks from a diverse group of games and game consoles, but they all hit the mark for big bass, big atmosphere, and speed.
Liquid is a sub-genre of drum and bass, using similar tempos and bass-lines, but aimed at producing a sentimental atmosphere for listening at home, rather than at a nightclubs and raves.
Hey! next week is our 200th episode!!! We’re going to highlight your favorite moments from the show, so let us know! Send us an email!
