Nerdcore rapper MC Chris recently held a public remix competition for his new album Race Wars. I took the oppertunity to put his acapella tracks together with some of the instrumentals I had been working on for the new volume of GameChops slated for release on January 5th 2012. All the mixes are downloadable and streaming via Soundcloud.
Check out the tracks and remember to favorite, share, and post comments!
It’s a rare thing that I’m involved in something so epicly adventurous as this EP. Featuring music inspired by Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (composed by Akito Nakatsuka), this Chiptune / House / Moobah / Electro album is five tracks of solid adventuring badassery. It’s particularly monumental for me, as it’s the first collection of remixes I’ve done without samples of in-game music. Legendary chiptune tracking was done by Spamtron, using renoise and modtracker. I handled the drum sequencing and mixing. The result are epic, dancable, and, most importantly, fun! Pick up the EP (5 tracks with 2 bonus tracks) over at Bandcamp for only 5 bucks.
I released a new mix today, originally crafted for a show with my buddies at Toats Orig. I spent this morning editing this nice little blurb on Soundcloud, so a little copy/paste action should let you know how I’m feeling >;]
Dubstep Is Dead is meant to be a eulogy for the classic meaning of the word Dubstep; a genre that got its start with underground garage mixes in the UK. This mix comprises of the tracks and artists that I believe have taken the genre to new places, incorporating elements of progressive house, electro, chiptune and tech. This is not to say that dubstep itself is gone from this planet forever, but rather it has risen like a Phoenix… here to destroy us all.
Released on Halloween 2011, a one year anniversary of live dubstep mixing for me. I hope you’ve enjoyed all the MIXES thus far. A big, big thank you to all the artists, blogs, and labels who’ve provided me with the music I spin, this is truly a team effort.
As a way to say thank-you, I’ve posted a complete tracklist with links to the artist’s Soundcloud pages and download locations for all of the tracks (many of them available for free).
It’s a mix of the best video game inspired dubstep. ft. Skrillex, Rusko, Datsik, Doctor P and some of the underground’s finest. 22 tracks in 38 eargrinding minutes. please enjoy.
Performed live at BIT GEN GAMER FEST in Baltimore, MD July 20th 2011.
