My boy Random a.k.a. Mega Ran was performing at MAGFest, so of course I had to swing by his set and show some love. Those who had never seen a Mega Ran performance were in for a treat. Even Niero and Dale North were floored by "Sock Hop" off Ran's River City Random album!
Long-time Ran fans were in for a surprise too -- a brand-new joint, "Outta Sight," that samples the famous pause beat from BattleToads. It's the lead track in a new EP entitled Time and Space, the first in a monthly EP series in which Ran will make songs based off games suggested by fans. For Time and Space, expect to hear tracks that source Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy Tactics, Gitaroo Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Earthworm Jim, and Mega Man X.
