  1. I picked this up a few months ago. It’s pretty cool, I’m going to use some Game Boy drum loops on some upcoming songs. Definitely cool for creating background music for stuff though.

  2. Seth and Michelle, aka 8BitWeapon rock on so many levels. It’s nice seeing them get some extra exposure and love, especially from Sony. Have you checked our 8 Bit Weapons Tron Tribute EP? Freaking amazing!
