‘Yakuza’ by Victim Cache (June 19, 2011)
‘Yakuza’ is a benevolently calm track. While most of Victim Cache’s work is relentlessly brain pounding, it’s a relief to see them slow things down for a moment, allowing a momentary lapse in thought where pure enjoyment can settle.
‘Tsunami Gaiden’ by Victim Cache (January 10, 2011)
Now the video game music scene can be bleak. Sometimes lacking emotion, and often lacking humanity, one finds it hard to relate or feel anything. Fortunately, ‘Tsunami Gaiden’ doesn’t make the mistake of trying to be human, quite the opposite. Pumping this track on your headphones and riding the G-train in the sweltering heat might create slight delusion but rather than having the song enter your world, ‘Tsunami Gaiden’ drags you into its own. All of a sudden, you are the 8 bit character jumping around the screen.
