MEMORIES OF TOKYO-TO: AN ODE TO JET SET RADIO
COMING FEBRUARY 20
Memories of Tokyo-To is a dedication to the music and style of the Jet Set Radio series of games. Produced chiefly but not entirely by composer Hideki Naganuma, the soundtrack's vibrant, hip-hop inspired attitude has entertained me for over half of my life and I am finally giving back. The CD and digital download are now available for pre-order. You'll get the two singles when you do so!
MIDNIGHT BROADCASTS VOLUME 2 IS HERE!
The second volume in my series of relaxing nighttime sample based hip-hop music has arrived, and with it, physical CDs of both volumes are now available to order from Bandcamp, as well as digital copies! MNBC Vol. 2 will soon also be live on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon and wherever you get your music.
THE SAMPLE STUDY PODCAST IS NOW LIVE!
My new project, The Sample Study, is a podcast where I take one sample and one song that sampled it per week, discuss the history and trivia behind both songs and then sample it myself to show you how it was done, step-by-step. Two episodes are live now and you can get them at The Sample Study website, YouTube or iTunes/Google Play/Stitcher and other podcast apps. Follow the podcast on Twitter, too!
2064: Read Only Memories Vinyl Soundtrack Now available for pre-order!
Please head to iam8bit and place your order now! The vinyl has a partial tracklist and comes with the full soundtrack in a digital download.
