DJ's Comments
Hey, everyone!

So, here is a very unique mix, special for the holidays! Basically, I’ve long been a fan of video games (though I rarely if ever get a chance to play them nowadays), and my childhood was filled with many awesome experiences playing great games on many different systems. Moreover, I have come to realize that a big part of my eventual gravitation to the world of electronic dance music was my love of video games and their music (the good examples, anyway).

As such, here is a musical tribute to the first couple generations of games that I played, from the 8 and 16-bit eras, so to speak. Put simply, the mix is filled with many of my favorite video game tracks; in addition, I end the mix with several dance remixes of tracks that I used earlier in the set, many of them with wicked 303 action (though I do end the mix with an original video game track – indeed, I love that Mega Man 2 ending track!).

Anyway, please enjoy, this is a very special set for me (due to the nostalgic value, of course, but also because the tracks just kick ass!). Also, because I had to mix digitally – which I never do, and am thus very inexperienced at – I was forced to mix in the simplistic fade-out/fade-in style, though there are a few transitions that are more subtle than that.

Ok, enjoy, and I’ll see you again soon,
