Did you ever need music to get you out of bed? Or those beats to run an extra mile? Rob and Pernell bring to you the best video game tracks for getting PUMPED!
This week on the show Rob and Pernell talk about their favorite video games! Specifically the games they would like to see revived and remastered. But then Pernell reminds Rob of the American Darkstalkers cartoon and his brain cracks open like an egg. AN EGG! Also, we have new merchandise available! Check out these sweet t-shirts, aren't they sweet? You bet they are! https://teespring.com/rhythm-and-pixels-apparel https://teespring.com/run-vgm
We've been cooking all day, and we can't wait for our guests to arrive. This will be a dinner party to remember! And you will! Because this is dinner party HARD MODE. Pick the right appetizer, eat the correct soup. Or there will be horrible (hilarious) consequences! I mean... this week's show is all about music you can play in the background of your next dinner party! Also this week is the return of "Rob's Trivia Time!" Can you guess the game from the Nintendo Power tagline? Let us know how you did!
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.
It's been (ITS BEEN) TWO YEARS of the podcast, so it's time for another celebration! But didn't you just celebrate 100 episodes? We did! Who cares! Rob and Pernell pick their top 5 songs of the past year, pop bottles, laugh uncontrollably at Pernell's fake curse-words, and discover that Andore is the Sorting-Hat of the Mad Gear gang. Thanks to a gift from a special listener, things go a little off the rails.
