30: A VGM Dance Party

Rad! Another look into dance music in video games that probably wasn’t meant for dancing but you totally could if you wanted to. This episode pulls from dance music of all types, including EDM, funk, house and more… though since it is video games and mostly retro games, there’s still a profound ’80s vibe. Enjoy.
