It has been over 25 years since the global disco sound boom of the 1970’s “Saturday Night Fever” music scene. These disco sounds were unstoppable during the era, however they quickly faded do to their formulaic nature. By the ’80s, disco was obsolete. During that period, the video arcade game phenomenon was conquering every coffee shop and mall around the world. The lo-fi “Bit” sound was exploding in popularity, as the catchy sound of "Pac Man" and the like bleeped around the planet.
