LMH Mixtape #194: Rob Loses

In the full episode, Rob told a story about taking a rare loss in Street Fighter II.  Don't worry though, because this mixtape is full of winners.  Starting right off the bat with the incredibly smooth Dean Evans track "Diving" from Waterworld.  You'll also get a dose of that iconic Konami sound from Wai Wai World 2: SOS!! Paseri Jou.  All that and more, on this week’s episode of the LMH Mixtapes!


Instant favorite: Waterworld - Diving
Wai Wai can't I stop listening to this?: Wai Wai World 2: SOS!! Paseri Jou - Parsley City

Another year in the books, so you know what that means.  Time for another Best Of Year In Review episode.  This time the boizz went back to a full-length top ten list.  Do you have any guesses for which tracks they picked?  Will they have any overlapping picks?  You'll have to listen to find out, but one thing is certain, you're in for a mixtape full of the bonkest of tracks.

LMH Mixtape #192: Pinball Music

If you went to the arcade in the 80's or 90's, you heard some pretty great video game music from the arcade machines.  But if you looked next to those arcade cabinets, you probably saw a different type of machine with flashing lights and flippers.  Of course, we're talking about pinball games!

So for this special, one-time only episode, Brent and Rob focused on pinball machine music!  Don't get tilted, because no tokens are needed to enjoy this unique mixtape.

LMH Mixtape #191: Sensing Things

Do you sense that?  It's a hot new mixtape incoming!  Some of the best VGM tracks can come from some surprising places.  For example, Autumn from Classic Road II (a little known, Japanese-exclusive horse racing game) is an incredible orchestral piece of music that would fit well on any of the most beloved Zelda soundtracks.  We all know you can find great music on the NES, SNES, Genesis etc., but Stage 4: Infinity Academy from Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon S shows how the Sega Game Gear can surprise you with hidden gems just as well as any other system.  I'm sensing some totally Bonk jams in your future!


Instant favorite: Classic Road II: Real Kouma Simulation - Autumn
Best shredding solos: Vixen 357 - Opening Demo
Game Gear Greatness: Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon S - Stage 4: Infinity Academy

Episode 266: The Three Tenners

Some technical difficulties on this episode.  Brent's microphone was crackling and stuff, but the music tracks were all replaced in post, so at least those sound clean.  Speaking of the tracks, there's some good ones -even possible top ten material to listen to here.  In fact, Brent, Rob, and Gabe had at least one top ten pick prediction for the end of the year even though the year just started.    Full track listing below.
