ChipHop godfather A_Rival brings us three tracks EP that take the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to whole new places.
Also known as PlanetSkill, A_Rival is an electro producer from California, who has been producing music and video game remixes since 2001. His new EP is a labor of love, a tribute to the four most radical amphibians in history. A_Rival, a huge turtle fan himself, tells us “every single incarnation I love. even the really bad shit. I feel like the tv show theme song is one of the best themes ever created And the Konami Arcade game is my favorite adaption.”
And the theme holds it’s own in remix form as well. With strong arrangement and a hard-hitting production, TMNT is a force to be reckoned with. Taking the memorable theme and infusing it with a healthy dose of drum & basss, A_Rival has levelup’d the classic TMNT theme in a way that’s all his own.
The EP continues to I Wanna Be a Ninja Turtle, a nerdcore tribute to the TMNT. A story of a kid who wants to grow up to be a crime fighting turtle, the source material is taken from the Nintendo game. Check it out below, it’s bad ass:
