'Console Wars' the nostalgia infused hip hop mashup mixtape by 8-Bit Mullet

Take some classic commercials, and a smattering of mashups and remixes from a few catchy artists, and you get 8-Bit Mullet's Console Wars, a 30 minute mix of classic VGM and hip hop verses.

Console Wars is my first mixtape recorded live (mostly) using Serato software. The theme calls me back to a time when Sega Genesis and Nintendo commercials were going back and forth with the vigor and mudslinging of a presidential campaign. It includes a curation of nintendo remixes and video game remixes, and several video game mashups of my own device.

I took this mixtape as an opportunity to practice DJing live using Serato and my Akai AMX & AFX, and make sure my live shows in Richmond, VA, will be a blast for everyone who comes out when I’m playing.
