GameChops has released a full-length video game remix album dedicated to chill-out and house mixes of classic NES and SNES titles. Produced by Doni, a Canadian musician living in Taiwan, Button Masher Remastered includes updated and polished versions of his most notable video game tracks from the past decade. The album includes a brilliant remix of Stickerbrush Symphony from Donkey Kong Country 2, along with a tongue-in-cheek remix of Pokemon’s famed Lavender Town Theme, to a progressive re-imagination of Final Fantasy X’s Mt. Gagazet.
Back in April I started a netlabel for my two favorite things, Chiptunes and Video Game music, called GameChops. Since then, it’s grown faster than I imagined, and today I am pleased to announce the release of a new, free album from the one and only halc.
halc is a composer, remixer and Overclocked Remix judge. His album, Hydrocity, seemlessly fuses chiptune, electro, dubstep, FM funk and jazz. Halc writes:
“Inspired by such visionary minds as Joshua Morse, P Villa, and Savant, this album has everything from chiptune-influenced electro and dubstep to ambient beats, FM funk and jazz fusion, delightfully blended and compiled into a 40-minute package. The album also features an arrangement of the ever-popular ‘Hydrocity Zone’ music from Sonic the Hedgehog 3, and guest appearances by fellow OC ReMix legends Level 99 and WillRock.
