Game Music 4 All presents Black Shy Guy Summer 2015 Mixtape

40 video game based hip hop, beats & more in about an hour!

Mega Mix of music featured on the first season of the Subcon Podcast. The only podcast dedicated to video game based hip hop.

All the music in this mixtape are tracks featured in the first season of the Subcon Podcast. Season 2 coming soon!

This playlist is specially tailored to Mario Kart 8 online play, at least that is what I tell myself, since all the music I used for the first season of the podcast also made up my racing playlist for MK8. Does listening to this music make me even more dangerous behind the wheel? If you ever see me online, maybe you'll find out.

The GM4A Weekly VGM Recap for November 3-9, 2014

Catch up on the last week of video game music news.

Loads of news this past week, and it doesn't seem to be letting up. I'm hard at work hunting down the latest and greatest in video game music. Peruse the site and I'm sure you will find the perfect soundtrack to the incoming DLC for Mario Kart 8. I'm particularly excited about the included F-Zero content in the update, which drops November 12th. 

Needless to mention, I am also enthused by the various implications this game expanding DLC creates. Wii U owners will be receiving new racers, courses, and karts (and Amiibo linked Mii costumes) while Nintendo fans in general get myriad questions as to the future of Nintendo DLC and Amiibo support.

Will you be purchasing the universe expanding DLC for Mario Kart 8? What upcoming content has you most excited to jump back into the race?

I'm still playing Mario Kart 8 damn near every chance I get. Mosty because I have it downloaded to my Wii U, so every time I fire it up, I see that little MK8 logo beckoning me. Alright, just a race or two...
