The Stones Throw producer’s VGM tape series gains a seventh and eighth installment.
Extending his most recent strain of tapes, the producer added two more volumes to the ongoing VGM series, dropping a seventh and eighth installment on Friday. As the name suggests, the series features choice flips and recalibrations of songs pulled from video game soundtracks and scores; a logical extension of the producer’s gaming habits, which are occasionally broadcasted live on his Twitch channel.
The new tapes follow a brief reunion with Anderson .Paak as NxWorries earlier in the week, headlining 88 Rising’s Double Happiness Festival. The duo used their set to debut the new song, “Where I Go,” and fuel anticipation for a sophomore collaborative project (which has yet to be officially announced, but seems imminent at this point.) Earlier this year, .Paak claimed a new NxWorries album was in the works. However, the singer was hesitant to offering too many details. Knxwledge and Anderson .Paak previously reconnected on the song “itkanbe[sonice]” from the producer’s sophomore studio album, 1988. That track was recently issued as a picture disc vinyl single with a new remix from the producer on its b-side. You can grab a copy via Stones Throw today.
