Chilltendo is a video game concept album. It’s twelve tracks from Nintendo’s rich musical history, reimagined as lo-fi hip hop beats.
Lo-fi hip hop is a subgenre of electronic music that features minimal, instrumental arrangements accompanied by environmental sound design. If you’ve heard a chill beat with the sound of rain falling, ocean waves, or vinyl crackle, you were most likely listening to Lo-fi.
Chilltendo was produced by the artist Jokabi (real name Kai Jakobi), a musician from Germany. He hails from a talented family. His brother, the artist Mikel, produced the hit album “Zelda & Chill.” At the time of writing, the album has racked up over 60M play on Spotify and YouTube. Mikel is features on the remix of Forest Temple.
Chilltendo includes remixes from Animal Crossing, Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Galaxy, Pokémon, and Chrono Trigger. It even includes a remix of Undertale, while not directly a Nintendo game, is now available on Nintendo Switch.
