    Welcome back. I love video game nerds, especially if a producer could put that sh*t in his instrumentals. I'm pleasantly surprised, those 2 tracks are really nice. I definitely see the resemblance with Emancipator, and he's one of my personal favorite producers. I think I'll start out with Abstrakt Mindz Thinc Ulike because that second track you posted was super. The Peaceland track was real smooth as well. Good rec, appreciate it, always looking to up my instrumental catalogue.
