LMH Mixtape #114: Neo Geo

Clocking in right after the boizz'z early New Year's New Age celebration came the first show of the Neo year: a Neo Geo focus!  Instantly recognizable by its red cabinet, four bright buttons, and two joysticks*, this cartridge-based arcade system brought its own incredible sound to the video gaming landscape.  Kick back with this eclectic mix of textures, attitudes, and tunes.  The future is now!
