Pianist Vinheteiro offers up another great compilation, as he performs a variety of classic themes from video games throughout the last 30+ years. There’s something about the sustain and resonance of the piano that makes all of the chiptunes sound so much richer.
The guys from Pomplamoose are back with another great mashup, this time combining Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean, Justin Timberlake’s Can’t Stop the Feeling, and The Weeknd’s Can’t Feel My Face into a single seamless track. It’s basically the live equivalent of a dance mix.
