For those of us who love the night time, who love the winter – it’s time to celebrate!! The clocks have finally turned back, DST is over, and we can enjoy a nice long dark winter. Let’s mark the occasion with some music inspired by the night!
Press Start to Continue is EIGHT YEARS OLD THIS WEEK!!! I never thought that we’d still be going strong after all this time! This episode we’re going to be playing some of my personal favorite tracks. But that’s not all! This episode was actually for real recorded live! Every Saturday starting May 8th we’ll be streaming on the BytesanBeats twitch channel. Be sure to come hang out, request music, and enjoy some interviews with some amazing artists. Its going to be really fun!
We’ve got a slew of new music from OverClocked ReMix, and a special playlist of some of my favorite entries to this year’s Vocalist/Producer Challenge!
ALSO!!! Press Start is going to be recording LIVE for the next couple months with BytesAnBeats EVERY SATURDAY!! Follow the BytesAnBeats twitch and join me at 7pm starting this Saturday, April 17th! We’ll be playing requests and hanging out in chat. SUPER FUN!!
Check out and follow BytesAnBeatsliterally everywhere:
(I recently injured my hand, so I wasn’t able to put together a new show for you guys, BUT i went back into the archives and pulled up a really great Black History Month show from a couple years ago! I got to talk to EyeQ, a great artist who was just premiering his triple album project Triple L: A tribute to Anita Baker. I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane, and stay tuned in a couple weeks for (hopefully…) A BRAND NEW EP OF PRESS START! )
Happy Black History Month! we have some new music form OCReMix, a new track from Lex the Lexicon Artist, and the first in a series of interviews with black artists that will run throughout the month!
Tonight I have a great conversation with EyeQ! Check out his work and follow him on the socials!
This week we get into some SPOOPY MUZICZ in the first hour! Oct 31st is THIS WEEK so we have our yearly Halloween show! Our second hour is about the upcoming election, and how we need to do our part to vote out authoritarianism. I know its tough, and I know you might not like the Dem’s candidate. But we can’t have four more years of this. This comes down to people’s lives. Do your part and vote!

I haven’t uploaded a show in a while because… well the world is on fire right now and its hard to handle. It takes a lot of mental energy to process cultural events like this in general, but as a black person it hits HARD and things fall by the wayside. If you’re in the same boat, I’m hoping this show helps: First hour is relaxing music, stuff I play to chill myself out. The second hour is a showcase of great black musicians that deserve your support in these insane times. I hope you enjoy it, and for anyone who is out in the streets trying to make like better for me and mine – Thank you.
This ep is a listener submitted theme idea! I know we’re all stuck inside but we still have to exercise! Make sure that we stay healthy! Each hour is a playlist that you can listen to while you’re on the elliptical, bike, taking a run, whatever! It’ll keep you moving, keep your heart up and get you through an hour of cardio!
PLUS we have some BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW NERDCORE! Lets get to it!
Bonus: If you want to JUST listen to the music while you work out we got you covered!
Press Start to Continue is SEVEN YEARS OLD!!! This show we have an hour of orchestral music and then an hour of some of my favorite nerdcore tracks. I’d like to thank all of the amazing artists that give us their all to make this wonderful music! Without them there is no Press Start. So enjoy! And thanks for 7 years of nerdy madness!
