From Sega Retro
Playlist Manager for RADIOSEGA. Trusted Editor for VGMdb.
- Country: South Africa
- Date of Birth: 2000-08-21
- First Soundtrack Purchase: SEGA RALLY 2006 ORIGINAL SOUND TRACK
- Playlist Manager since: June 29, 2020
Frequents various SEGA websites for music-related info. Cares deeply about Production Credits. Unnofficially heads the SEGA side of VGMdb's product line. Half the year, I host the weekly podcast/LiVE show Individual on RadioSEGA. It's a Wednesday show in which I go over the histories and sounds of SEGA sound designers (or at the very least, the musicians with substantial ties to SEGA). A lot of edits you see during the second half of the year, it's to do with me researching for Individual.
