LMH Mixtape #21: Jeff van Dyck

Jeff van Dyck's music is some of the most instantly recognizable in 16-bit gaming, and for Episode 21, the boizz invited him on the air to explain why.  Jeff graciously accepted and dropped some serious knowledge about Super Nintendo and Genesis hardware, how their strengths and limitations affected his compositions, and whether or not he thinks his tunes have held up over time.  After you enjoy this skitchin' mix be sure to check out Jeff's current projects at www.jeffvandyck.com, because this guy is still doing awesome stuff!

NOTE TO THE DETAIL-ORIENTED:  In the original episode, a track from NBA Live 96 was played, which was actually composed by a different composer (Jeff pointed this out Brent and Rob after the podcast was released), so that track was not included in this mix.
