Mega Ran’s new video for ‘Space Defence Team’ gets a 16-Bit aesthetic whilst the track features Kool Keith and Wordburglar.
Mega Ran’s latest video taps into ’90s video game nostalgia as a 16-Bit era side scrolling shoot ’em up. The track is taken from Mega Ran’s most recent album ‘RNDM’ and features veteran rapper Kool Keith alongside Wordburglar.
The song may be short but this dope video created by Doctor Octoroc provides a classic arcade gaming visual to bring the track to life.
