Future Classic: Nameless “16-Bit: Bonus Stages”

I stumbled up Nameless‘ music when I was doing my instrumental radio show back in 2009. He’s a beatmaker from Detroit so expect the rawness typical to the Motor City. He released a lot of beat tapes; some more soul, some more boom bap. And he did one sampling video game …
