Rhythm Encounter 55 – Relaxing Rhythm Part 2

Rhythm Encounter 055

We’re just here to vibe…again. There’s so much good relaxing music within our favorite genre that we needed two episodes to cover it. We delve into a nice assortment here (from 16-bit to recent releases) and discuss how these relaxing picks fit into their in-game settings, whether it’s a nice underwater atmosphere or around a campfire. Relax and be well, listeners, but also remember that ambiance is important.

Featuring: Mike Salbato, Hilary Andreff, Peter Triezenberg; Edited by Mike Salbato
