Dark clouds are looming over this podcast, something’s happening. Something great and terrible! On this week’s episode we listen to moody and suspenseful music, perfect to ramp-up the tension on an otherwise fun and friendly podcast. But of course we can’t hold it in, and this episode features more singing and silliness than ever!
To help us out this week we’re joined by game composer Erik Desiderio (Anshar Online, Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer, Adventure Time VR) Erik is an award-winnner composer for film, TV, and of course, video games!
Check out his soundtrack to the new game Anshar Online, available now!

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.
Enjoy a selection of mostly classic 8 and 16 bit tracks composed for video game cutscenes! Bonus trivia! The picture of Rob riding the chocobo was lifted from a picture of him riding a statue of a horse in Pittsburgh.
