Dear travelers and tourists: I am AD Springer, your musical tour guide to The Electric Metropolis, your city of sound and song that glimmers, hums, shines, and lays you down with the great music of the electronica sphere and beyond! As a special treat during this tour, my dear tourists, we will be crossing paths with The Travelers VGM! Namely Josh Barron, Marsha Lepire, & Ian Martyn: the producers of that supergroup of performers! Before then, we have a tour to take up and enjoy from future funkiness, chiptuny, singing, and of course video game music worth your ear, time, and heart. So, come with me and let’s get this tour going!
