This week we sit down and talk with the heads of PM Studios, publisher of great music games like Cytus Alpha, Deemo, the DJMAX series, and other great titles like Mercenaries Saga Chronicles and the upcoming Horizon Chase Turbo! We talk about their love of games and music, how they got started in the industry, and who has the most platinum trophies on the PlayStation Network!
Grab your zippers, chains, and Mickey Mouse hats! We are here to celebrate the release of Kingdom Hearts 3 with a super-special episode of Kingdom Hearts music! Superstar musician and Kingdom Hearts expert Key Jay is here to help us make sense of the story and timeline. If you listen closely, you can hear the point where are brains break!
Key Jay, Jamaal Ephriam, is a Miami based producer and artist with huge influences from classic Sega games and of course, Kingdom Hearts! Check out his epic Project Kingdom XIII for some serious JAMS!
