Your Hosts

Audi "Akumu" hails from Norway and is one of the world's most knowledgeable experts on music in the doujin and remix scenes. Since an early age, he has collected video game music, but he has also traveled the world meeting many composers and remixers, acquiring a collection of interesting stories in the process.

Carl Larson is from America and has been an avid collector of Japanese game music for over a decade, searching out obscure albums from the past as well as enjoying current hits. With respect for early record labels like GMO and Scitron, his interest in the business side of soundtrack publishing and artist marketing inspires his visits to Tokyo in hopes of establishing future game music collaborations.

Episode #006: July Selections

posted by Carl Sep 26, 2009 11:01 AM (9 comments)

Here's a mix of new & old: Four album picks from July '09 and four albums from July '89. Getting a balanced perspective on where we've been shows us that currently the vgm scene is completing the circle back to our roots, and the current Retro Gaming trend reinforces that notion.

These Konami, Namco, and Sega tunes from 20 years ago illustrate that what's hot back then is still just as hot today. But it's not all about the nostalgia, as new releases such as the Shatter Soundtrack give us modern genre-blending sounds to enjoy.

Episode #006 Contents:
* Pachislot Ganbare Goemon OST
* Legend of Joe Musashi: SHINOBI Music Box
* Shatter Official Videogame Soundtrack
* Yuusha 30 Sou Original Soundtrack
* Konami Game Music Collection Vol.0
* Konami Famicom Music Memorial Best Vol.1
* Winning Run -G.S.M. NAMCO 2-
* Symphony Sorcerian

Thanks for listening, and enjoy the music!
