Let’s listen to music for fish! We’re talking about classic fishing video games, and even some mini-games about fishing within other games. SO MANY FISH. No matter what angle we come at it, we find super-chill, jazzy, and always positive music. Special shout-out to listener Wicked Sephiroth for the track suggestions which spawned this whopper of an episode! (pun intended)
We need to leave a special note to our friends Josh and Emily over at the podcast The VGM Jukebox. Last week they released their final episode, and it was lovely in a bitter-sweet kind of way. Rob and Pernell salute you, and will continue to be fans in your future projects.
We salute you.

Jump around, jump around, jump around-yeah! This week we listen to classic hip-hop, and classic hip-hop inspired, video game music! It gets funky, it gets heavy, and then it gets cheesey… oh boy it gets cheesey in places 🙂
We are joined by the talented producer and video game composer, 2 Mello! (2064 Read Only Memories, Celeste) He wanted to jump on our show and talk about the cross-over of video games into hip-hop, and sometimes vice-versa. We talk about the use of samples, old hardware, and our favorite Jet Set Radio characters.
