Welcome to our weekly podcast dedicated to videogame music – Sound of Play
What we aim to bring you for this end of year special Sound of Play is a diverse sample of some of the Cane and Rinse team’s favourite pieces from the many air-punching, spine-tingling, tear-jerking and grin-inducing videogame soundtracks we’ve heard over the last year or so. However, it’s not just about what we like (well, this particular show is an exception!), so if you venture over to our forum at caneandrinse.com you can put forward your favourites and we’ll include a selection in the playlist for each show.
with contributions from the rest of the Cane and Rinse team
