Final Fantasy is widely known for exceptional characters, superb storytelling, and memorable music. The music is so loved that many groups have adapted it for live concerts, including five distinct tours over the past decade. Today, the team of electronic dance musicians at GameChops have released “Triple Triad,” a twelve-track remix album playing tribute to Final Fantasy and the music of series composer Nobuo Uematsu.
Spearheaded by UK producer Mykah, Triple Triad takes inspiration from three classic games in the Final Fantasy series, VI, VII, and VIII. To many, these games were an introduction into the series. To others, these games serve as a fond memory of when story, mood and music took precedent over graphics, hardware and spectacle.
Triple Triad contains a multitude of genres and styles to fit any electronic appetite; styles range from latin dancehall to drum ‘n bass to house and dubstep. Mykah shows his versatility as a producer, while the compositions of Mr. Uematsu are proven, yet again, to be powerful in any context. Whether you’re a long-time fan of the series or a casual listener of electronic music, Triple Triad is something special.
GameChops is a record label started by Dj CUTMAN that produces electronic cover songs of video game music. GameChops acquires mechanical licenses to the compositions contained within their albums. Music is available on GameChops.com, Loudr.FM, iTunes, and other major marketplaces.
Today marks the second GameChops release for UK-based video game remixer Mykah. His first was a 5 track bass-music tribute to Zelda as part of The Triforce of Bass, he now turns his attention to a (literally) lighter character, Kirby.
Kirby’s Bassface is a five track EP exploring music from the Kirby series in Mykah’s high energy style. Source material stems from the earlier games, themes from Kirby’s Dreamland for NES and Kirby’s Super Star for SNES make up the album. Originally composed by Jun Ishikawa for Nintendo, Mykah has made these tunes all his own. Get the album now!
Kirby’s Bassface is licensed for Nintendo by JoyPad Records. Those who pay to download the album are directly supporting Mykah and licensed remix projects like this.
