Check out this brand new podcast from Sega Genesis FM chiptune master Jredd AKA Trevin Hughes



To celebrate his 100,000th(!) play on music streaming service Soundcloud, our friend Jredd AKA Trevin Hughes has done something awesome and started a new podcast called Jredd & Friends – which is all about chiptune and video game music!

In his first episode, Jredd talks about his own  music on his most recent album The Next Level and the various chip and non-chip influences that helped shape it. In the later half of the program he discusses some of his chiptune friends, their amazing tunes and leaves us on a high note by including a song from an actual VGM composer (Alberto J Gonzales) and offers a teaching moment about what musicians might learn from video game composers.

Jredd also makes amazing Sega Genesis tunes using the highly versatile VGMM Sega Genesis/Master System tracker.  Recently he helped Retro Obscura co-host Aaron Hickman create the new intro to the Retro Obscura Podcast. He also helped Aaron create the  song “Power Struggle” which can be heard at the end of each episode.

Jredd was also recently interviewed on Episode 38 of our show. You can hear the interview excerpt from the show here:
