2. NEW INTERVIEW ON CAPCOM-UNITY


my man Seth got some words with me on the mixtape and some other stuff, check that out.

Unity: What excited you about the project in the first place?

Random: Mainly
the fact that it was based on the great Marvel Vs. Capcom franchise. I
spent many nights getting destroyed on the game; I was never any good
at it, but I'd always come back. So to be able to make a song that
would serve as a backdrop to the game was something I just had to get
involved with.


Unity: What do you think of the final product?

Random: The final product is incredible. Awesome artwork, a
killer lineup of many of my all-time faves, a sweet blue vinyl, what
more can you ask for? I'm really hoping a downloadable version comes
out soon, because I don't want to open my vinyl, I'm a collector. It's
an honor to even have my name that close to these folks.


Unity: What's your favorite track (apart from your own)?

Random: I
know this might seem crazy, but I haven't heard it yet.. that's why I'm
hoping for a downloadable version! but I really like The Grouch and
Eligh's track that I heard.
