Celebrating 5 years of Gamer Hip Hop, a unique blend known to some as Nerdcore, GamerHop, ChipHop, but to Mega Ran and K-Murdock it’s a way of life, the Forever Famicom Tour spans the United States (exact dates etc. below, scroll down) and marks the latest in a steady string of tours centered around what is likely the most recognized video-game inspired music act out.
Mega Ran and K-Murdock put together Forever Famicom with the love of video-games as a centerpiece theme and as gaming is a way of life for so many millions of different people worldwide, this led to a universal soundtrack that is mostly about Mega Ran’s life but can be related to by many listeners. Production was crafted in such a way that K-Murdock has managed to mix retro with modern sound creating something completely new and different that is progressively changing and morphing throughout the track.
>> The resulting journey is a ride of audio-induced nostalgia called FOREVER FAMICOM
So many people like Forever Famicom that it has been performed live many times, Forever Famicom DLC was released with instrumentals including never-before-used exclusives to the original album and brand new tracks, then later more tracks were featured in Forever Famicom DLC 2, and DLC 3. The Forever Famicom 5th Anniversary Tour will cover NYC, Boston, STL, Detroit, Chicago, and more.
