Yo dawg, we hear you like video game music and vinyl records and video game music on vinyl records and memes from 2008. So we put some video game music on vinyl records so you can vid–
Okay anyway, we’re back! Hello!

This week, Anthony and Jeremy tackle the topic as a twosome, bringing you some great tunes and talk as we spin a special spread from our vinyl collections. First, Anthony takes us back to a cult PS1 favorite with the Xenogears -SHINKAKU- compilation, with arranged versions of the original soundtrack, including its “Creid” and “Myth” interpretations. We discuss the trajectory of composer Yasunori Mitsuda and the shearing point between old- and new-school music. Jeremy chimes in with an exploration of the “drum & bass” music scene with the Forza Horizon 4: Hospital Records soundtrack. The diegetic radio station provides some very “racy” music for the game, and we learn about the entire genre, from drumfunk to jumpstep, and hear what Hospital Records brings to the world of vinyl on their glow-in-the-dark release.

For our final segment we discuss our updated wishlists for 2019, and we have a special play-with-the-hosts invitation for our listeners! Remember to hit us up on Twitter and comment below if you’d like to explore the luxurious gluttony of Dragon’s Crown with Anthony and Jeremy!
