Earlier this week I got to sit down with Game Chops owner and excellent human being, Chris Davidson aka Dj CUTMAN. In our interview we discuss his methods, his love of FF XII, this weeks release of Holder and Ephixa’s remix of Final Fantasy’s Victory Fanfare, his Newgrounds roots, and his admiration for deadmau5 and Skrillex.
Coming off of his successful Gamechops debut in February, Holder brings along the talented Ephixa to give us their remix of Final Fantasy’s Victory Fanfare. Continue reading Holder & Ephixa – Victory Fanfare (Final Fantasy VII Remix)

Cutman tells us a bit about his experience with the song:
I wrote this song on my Game Boy while I was visiting in Germany several years ago. I sat in a public park around sunset and something reminded me of the scene from Final Fantasy VII, so I programmed it on my LSDj cart.
I hadn’t recorded the song until recently. Grimecraft and I were Skyping one day, and I had my Gameboy in front of me and was toying around with another idea. I decided to load up my old save file and when he heard it, he asked me to send it to him. I recorded each channel separately, warped it in Ableton, and send him the project file. Over the next few weeks, we put together the single. If you download it from Loudr, you’ll get a recording of the original Gameboy chiptune.
