Game Mix – 001- We Need Your Help Star Fox

Welcome to Game Crunch: Game Mix! As a group we’ve always been very passionate about video game music and remixes.  Stemming from our discussion about video game soundtracks during the 2015 Game of the Year discussions we really started to talk about ways that we could share the music that we were passionate about with our listeners!  Since January we’ve gone through various demos of our concept and we’ve decided it’s finally time to share what we’ve been working on with you!

For our first episode I decided to commemorate the launch of a new Star Fox game and take a musical tour around the Lylat system.
