On today’s episode of The VGMbassy, Ed is joined by Trevin Hughes (better known as chiptune artist Jredd,) who wrote the amazing theme song you hear at the beginning of every show. As a VGMbassador, Trevin shares with us his passion for vgm from shmups, splitting the show into two parts: music he grew up with, and music that’s influenced his musical career. Fans of rockin’ BGM and incredible synth solos won’t be disappointed with the tunes on parade today!
