I’m very excited to announce the upcoming release of the latest album from my label GameChops, Club Needlemouse. Titled after the code-name for Sonic the Hedgehog back in his early development ( Mr. Needlemouse ), this album takes inspiration from games throughout the Sonic series. It’s created by italian producer RobKTA (Pronouced Rob kay-tee-aee), and it features live instrumentation alongside dance music production.
What’s extra exciting about this album is that it’s done in the style of 90s club and house music. Very different from some of the other GameChops releases, that have gained popularity from a modern EDM sound, like Triforce of Bass and Trash FM.
I think this departure to a different style of dance music is a welcome one, and a sound I personally enjoy. I could listen to this album on repeat for days… it’s being mastered by bLiNd and myself. The mixes feel exciting and fresh while keeping with a more classic aesthetic. I’m particularly happy to hear some tunes from the early Sega Genesis Sonic games re-done in the electronic style of that time. Very cool.
Here’s a youtube trailer I put together featuring a mashup I did of one song and the classic vocal line from Stardust’s “Music Sounds Better With You” Just goes to show you how true these mixes are to the classic house sound. Club Needlemouse is out on GameChops on October 13th 2013.
