3-30-2011 - Today's Hotness (Drum & Bass): "Give You The World" - Crissy Criss & Youngman.

Title track off of the "Give You The World" album...such a great track...your laptop speakers aren't going to fully do this track justice, though. If you have a good system hooked up to your rig, or if you're gonna bump this in your that! Enjoy it!

3-27-2011 - SAVEPOINT SUNDAY! (Chiptune): "The Doomsday Zone" - Sega Sound Team.

Remember when the "sonic cycle" didn't exist? Yeah, so do I...I also remember when getting all 7 Chaos Emeralds and become Super (Saiyan) Sonic wasn't relegated to ONE LEVEL...however, this is the true final level music from Sonic 3 & Knuckles after getting all the Chaos Emeralds AND all the Hyper Emeralds. Appropriately epic as you chased Dr. Robotnik through a meteor shower in space collecting rings so that you don't lose the power of the emeralds. Enjoy it!

I wish I was half the badass this chick is...

3-20-2011 - SAVEPOINT SUNDAY! (Big Band / Jazz): "Bit Crusher" - Namco Sound Team.

Y'know, a lot of Tekken fans think that 4 is the worst of the series. I can see why they'd say that, but you can't really fault Namco too much for shaking things up a bit. I was very much a fan of the more diverse levels, 'cause they lent me a sense of "this shit will jump off anywhere, anytime". No place was this more apparent, then on the Shinjuku level where this music plays during your fights there. Right on a street corner with onlookers peepin' the fury in front of them as you send your opponent crashing into a phone booth. I'm a sucker for that kind of shit, and you gotta at least respect it. As for this track...enjoy it!

3-13-2011 - SAVEPOINT SUNDAY! (16Bit Chiptune): "GTR ATTACK" - Konami Sound Team.

This track comes from an AMAZING boss fight in the Sega Genesis game, "Contra: Hard Corps", where you take on a trio of machines that combine and transform into various forms all imagined with the same purpose in mind: to fucking murder you. Such a fitting track for this high-speed battle across land and sea! Enjoy it!

I had originally heard a remix (don't know by who, though) in this house mix from Treasure Fingers (I think it was him, at least) and sought out the original. The original isn't bad either, but while I couldn't find the particular remix I had heard from that one mix, I did find a clip on youtube of another one by's pretty good! Enjoy it!

3-6-2011 - SAVEPOINT SUNDAY! (Chiptune / VGM): "Leo! Leo!" - Konami Sound Team.

So this is kickin' off a new theme-day series I wanted to try out, based on video game music specifically. This first one is about a very special boss battle and was kind of inspired by Joe Drilling / Shakewell's (of the "On The Stick" Website and Podcast) video where he compares the differences between two versions of Life Force / Salamander.

Now, before we get to the actual track I'm waxin' poetic about...I gotta explain where it came from.

This is "Music 9" from the NES version of Gradius. I'm sure most of you remember it, but for those who don't...this track plays midway through the first level. You're trapped between two erupting volcanoes spewing a constant stream of lava rocks, and you need to blast 'em all or else you will die. Despite this track bein' sparse, it does its job in conveying the urgency the situation presents to you.

Now we have "Music 3"...this track accompanies a level that has a strong technology theme all through it. This track definitely sets the mood just right.

...But, what happens when you combine these two tracks and add a pumping techno beat and various orchestral sounds?

This. Probably one of the greatest cameos ever, this is the music that plays when you fight the Vic Viper (The ship you pilot in all of the Gradius games) itself in "Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner". Leo Steinbuck, the main character from the first game is the pilot of Vic Viper, and he's grown into quite the skilled runner. You, as Dingo Egret, are piloting the Orbital Frame, Jehuty, which was in fact originally piloted by Leo in the first game. Leo is pissed that you have Jehuty, and he wants it back! This track that scores the battle perfectly meshes the frantic nature of "Music 9" with the technology influenced "Music 3" while still adding something new. Definitely a classic track from a classic game. Enjoy it!

Budos Band Changed My Life.

The Budos Band - "Unbroken, Unshaven"

Catchin these dudes at the Exit/In in Nashville was the best thing that's ever happened to me. I swear, it's the ONLY show I have ever been to that I can honestly say changed my life. I was blown completely away. Absolutely IN LOVE with these dudes! You can't go wrong with a metal infused afrobeat/funk band. If you ever get a chance to see them, I highly suggest you spend the 20-ish bucks to go see em. Fa sho!
