Swingin' With The 8-Bit Big Band

Led by arranger and founder Charlie Rosen, the 8-Bit Big Band has rekindled a love of swing with fans of game music. Following a sold-out show in New York City, the band has invited high-energy sax virtuoso Grace Kelly to join them for two concerts in Boston on March 1 . As Charlie told me, he has so much admiration for classic themes from Super Mario Brothers, The Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy that he thinks of them as The Great Game Songbook. Charlie says his love of Broadway provides the inspiration for his arrangements, which range from classic Benny Goodman to a Frank Sinatra-style cover of Still Alive from Portal. Grace and Charlie performed together as part of The Late Show Band, and their energy just clicked. Grace has been a special guest for many of the 8-Bit Big Band's concerts. Both Charlie and Grace are planning to debut new arrangements of beloved game themes at the Boston concerts. The band has released two albums , and third is due out this summer. Episode tracklist

Episode 67 – Mega Drive Mayhem

podcasts genesis mega drive sega

To many, the FM synth-driven sound of the Sega Mega Drive simply is the sound of video games, as its run of success in the early 1990s delivered countless brilliant original titles in addition to some very convincing arcade ports. In this episode, I share some of my favourite tunes from this beautiful little slab of black plastic, including tracks from ToeJam & Earl, Columns, and Ecco the Dolphin!

Listen:

Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master (1993, Sega Mega Drive) ‘Whirlwind’ by Morihiko Akiyama, Hirofumi Murasaki and Masayuki Nagao

ToeJam & Earl (1991, Sega Mega Drive) ‘ToeJam Jammin’’ by John Baker

Road Rash (1991, Sega Mega Drive) ‘Pacific Coast’ by Rob Hubbard

Gynoug (1991, Sega Mega Drive) ‘Round 2-1’ by Noriyuki Iwadare

Download the Episode

In the mid-2000s, Nintendo threw their rhythm-based games hat into the mix with the Game Boy Advance Japanese exclusive, Rhythm Tengoku. The franchise eventually was brought to other regions of the world, and with it, a smorgasbord of tasty audible treats. From smooth jazz to ska to hip hop infused metal, this series has it all when it comes to musical genres! Screaming from the highest of high rooftops regarding his love of the series is none other than today’s returning guest: Niko, aka NikoTengoku, better known as the artist formerly known as Wiiguy. Niko, Justin and Mike sit down and chat about Niko’s streams featuring made up lyrics to a Rhythm Heaven song, Justin blanking out dog sound effects, and plenty of other hilarious moments!

Episode 58: Dropchord, Final Fantasy IV

Greetings and salutations! The podcast is still running at a slightly slower-than-usual RPM, but the needle is as sharp as ever! This time we’ve set our wayback machine for “medium rare” and head back to the bygone era of the 2010s for the DoubleFine Productions release of Dropchord for mobile platforms. We talk about the joy of producing music, and the joy of playing games, and what it’s like when those two things intersect. Jeremy completes his nefarious plan to force everyone to listen to dubstep… perhaps that was the reason for Video Game Grooves to exist in the first place? Anthony then tweaks the knob and sends us back another decade to look at an unofficial vinyl production of Final Fantasy IV, and we dissect the new storytelling of RPGs in that era, as well as the musical je-ne-sais-quois-ness of Nobuo Uematsu’s work.

We steadfastly cover the news, although it may serve as a reminder for you at this point, and those are never bad. 😉 And for our discussion segment, we look at vinyl from the long view for the new decade, exploring its possibilities for longevity as a medium, and what we think it will be like in another 5 to 10 years.

Thanks for venturing with us into the bold new 20XX future. Keep spinning!

This week, I’m starting what is likely to be an annual tradition. About a year ago, February 9th, 2019, to be exact, my grandmother passed away. As you’ll hear in this episode, I’ve got a ton of memories of her with game music attached to them. Maybe it’s a bit of a stretch, but I wanted to do something a little more personal rather than just cover any one work in particular. It may lean a little heavy on a couple of series, but there’s plenty more to cover than just these. Anyway, hopefully this isn’t too sappy for you. If it is, the next episode is back to normal, so don’t worry about it too much if this wasn’t your bag. This episode might ultimately be more for me than anything, but, hey, it is my show, right?

KVGM "The Last Wave" (2/16/20)

KVGM podcast radio smooth jazz The Last Wave vgm video game music video games



Do you hear that sound? Can you feel it? The cool ocean breeze in your hair, the salt on your tongue. It's the smooth crash of the Last Wave on KVGM with your host, Hammock, bringing you thirty minutes of the best video game jams(z) from all your favorite composers and consoles, each and every week from our beachside studio on sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave.

Let's throw a question out there to the listener: if you could name your dream pasture, what would you name it? Mellow Meadows is where all the chill horses hang out on Aqua City Island, eating hay and running in the fields. When I was a little Hammock, I rode a lot of horses...as a bigger Hammock, I don't ride as many but still enjoy it when given the opportunity. But I do not enjoy taxi cab rides, nor do I want to simulate being a taxi cab driver. BUT THAT'S WHAT THE JAMS ARE FOR!

Rob Kovacs Rediscovers Buried Treasure In Long-Lost Game Music

For every classic NES video game that we all remember, like Castlevania, Zelda and Super Mario, there are literally hundreds that have fallen into obscurity. Pianist, composer and arranger Rob Kovacs is on a mission to bring these long-lost treasures to a new audience with his note-for-note piano transcriptions of themes from obscure games like T he Adventures of Lolo , Arkista's Ring and Marble Madness . As he told me, he's become a sort of musical archeologist, and it's been exciting to rediscover music from the very early days of Nintendo's history. Rob's not completely stuck in the past, though. He's currently working on the soundtrack for the VR space flight game Straylight. He says his music is built around his classic Prophet 5 analog synthesizer from the late 1970s with its iconic sounds. Videos of Rob's performances of classic NES themes are on YouTube, with even more available on his Patreon. And he has plans to release his Straylight soundtrack this summer. Episode tracklist

Episode #136 of BGMania. We're back with another focus on a particular year. Last time, way back on Episode 48, we discussed the year 1992. While that had some excellent games and music in it, we were still babies when it came to podcasting, and our focus on the year 1994 turned out to be much more enjoyable. Sorry for the delay and the episode not being up this morning, as I had a bit of work to get done that unfortunately came first. Nevertheless. Enjoy the show!

KVGM "The Last Wave" (2/9/20)

KVGM podcast radio smooth jazz The Last Wave vgm video game music video games


Do you hear that sound? Can you feel it? The cool ocean breeze in your hair, the salt on your tongue. It's the smooth crash of the Last Wave on KVGM with your host, Hammock, bringing you thirty minutes of the best video game jams(z) from all your favorite composers and consoles, each and every week from our beachside studio on sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave.

Someone once asked me, "Hey Hammock, what's makes a jam a smooth jam?" and I had to think about it for a minute. I had to consider all the possibilities. Because it's true...a jam can be a jam but still not be a smooth jam. I think it's the right balance of a good beat, some kind of brass instrument, the guitar shouldn't be overwhelming, and last but not be least, you should not feel anxious listening to it. Plenty of video game music out there makes me feel anxious but when you pop in a smooth jam, all that anxiety melts away and you're left with something so special...it's worth of the Last Wave.

Grant Kirkhope Stretches His Wings As A Film Composer

Writing the score for the award-winning animated short film The Wrong Rock gave BAFTA-nominated composer Grant Kirkhope a chance to spread his wings and offer an enjoyable change of pace from a busy year composing game soundtracks. As Grant told me, getting the perfect theme for Martin, the courageous mushroom who didn't fit in on his home rock, was the key that unlocked the music. Grant says he enjoyed the different challenges writing a film score presented, including having the music exactly fit the visuals in the film, even if it meant cutting out just two seconds of music to make it perfect! Through its simple story, The Wrong Rock , created by award-winning film maker Michael Cawood, explores prejudice, finding an environment where you feel comfortable and working up your courage to make a significant change. The film was shown at a number of festivlas, and it's now available online: Grant's soundtrack is also available online and he says, "Watch the film! Make the 13 minutes

Episode 44 – Valfaris w/ Composer Curt Victor Bryant

VGM Celtic Frost CelticFrost Curt Victor Bryant CurtVictorBryant Podcast Valfaris XVGM Radio

Ep44

Download the Episode

What oozes neon, smells of decaying bugs and gives you a neck injury? Why, it’s Valfaris, of course! Released in 2019, Valfaris brought a 1980’s Heavy Metal Magazine aesthetic to the run-n-gun genre, and along with it came an equally brutal, tranquil, and exciting soundtrack by Ex-Celtic Frost member, Curt Victor Bryant. It’s not everyday you get certified rock stars on the podcast, so Mike and Justin talked up a storm with the composer! From his beginning days in Switzerland at the jukebox, to his time in Celtic Frost, Curt lays it all on the line in this tell all episode that is currently our longest to date! We talk Energy Babes, heavy metal references, his injection of world and new age music into this thrash/groove/extreme metal soundtrack that will get the blood pumping!
Huge thank you to our guest of honor, composer Curt Victor Bryant! Please check him out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/curtvictorbryant

    Welcome to The Diad Presents!

    Happy New Year! I totally forgot to mention that on the show...

    Also, I had some bad info while I was putting together the episode. What I thought was "Unused Track 3" is actually called "After the Battle" and appears in game. I'm guessing it's a staff roll or credits track.

                      Welcome to The Diad Presents!

                      First, a correction. Between the time I recorded the episode and posted the finished mp3 file, I discovered that I had misstated the composer information for Casino Kid II. Originally, I read that the soundtrack was composed by Toshio Murai, but the actual end game credits list the composers only as “EIM Ltd.”

                      "EIM" stands for "Entertainment Imagination and Magnificence," and after some further research, it seems that the likely composers are actually Kenji Eno and Michiya Hirasawa. I'm still not certain, but I feel more comfortable listing them instead of Murai.

                      Episode 57: D2 Remixes, Monster Hunter 15th Anniversary

                      In the newest(-to-you)* episode of Video Game Grooves, Anthony and Jeremy tag-team the game-music-on-vinyl scene with a little bit of “weird, avant-garde, and fairly isolated” and also some “has its DNA in everything and is a major publisher’s new bread-and-butter.” We begin this journey of obscurity and ubiquity with D2 Remixes, an album based on the Kenji Eno survival horror game D2 for the Dreamcast. Although the game itself is an evolutionary dead end, the music itself is very modern… and catchy! Anthony takes us on a voyage of drum ‘n’ bass beats and gonzo horror creatures to bring us to vinyl knowledge of The Other Eno.

                      Next, Jeremy steps up to the plate with the formerly-obscure-but-now-inescapable Monster Hunter franchise, with the recent Monster Hunter 15th Anniversary release from T-Annex. Music from the earliest days of monster hunting up through the latest expansion for Monster Hunter World is represented here, and Jeremy and Anthony take the opportunity to traverse the history of the series to chase the choicest tracks for your listening pleasure. But after all is said and done, the important question is: Which of our features is the car-chasiest?

                      We continue onward diligently to the news and new releases, directing you to the usual suspects that want to sop up your spare cash. A couple of re-releases and a number of artistic reinterpretations have caught our attention this time, and we think they’ll do the same for you! Finally, we spend a bit of time ruminating on the best way to gift others of the video game vinyl persuasion for the Christmas season for the Valentine’s Day season, and how to help those in your life be bold in gifting you.

                      Outro: “Searching for the Hidden Hot Spring” – Monster Hunter X

                      KVGM podcast radio smooth jazz The Last Wave vgm video game music video games


                      Do you hear that sound? Can you feel it? The cool ocean breeze in your hair, the salt on your tongue. It's the smooth crash of the Last Wave on KVGM with your host, Hammock, bringing you thirty minutes of the best video game jams(z) from all your favorite composers and consoles, each and every week from our beachside studio on sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave.

                      Another week, another half-hour dose of SMOOTH~! -- this time, we visit Fox Junction for a completely chill 90's-esque jam, we play non-golf golf tracks, hit up that beautiful Bandai WonderSwan, and passive-aggressively explain to our virtual roommate that pantry space is limited. And remember,  love is a beach...sometimes...

                      We originally set out to discuss Transhumanism but in true form got side tracked with other topics and bullshit. Dean got drunk and made some stuff up that Stan instantly believes. Altogether a good discussion and jolly good time
