World 1-2: Encore

World 1-2: EncoreWorld 1-2: Encore” is the followup to “World 1-2” that featured top-class videogame composers & arrangers, including Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), Manami Matsumae (Mega Man), Keiji Yamagishi (Ninja Gaiden), Austin Wintory (Journey) and many more. “Encore” is one more ride with 14 remixes of some of our favorite games — from Mega Man and Zelda to Sonic and Super Hexagon and plenty others. It’s a celebration of the art & craft of video games.

Unlike the previous album “World 1-2“, this one is all remixes — so it’s easier to digest and enjoy. It retains the same nature of World 1-2: a multitude of genres and styles, mixed together in a playful way.

World 1-2 is a music project directed and produced by Mohammed Taher of Koopa Soundworks. All proceeds generated from this album will go toward funding new projects by Koopa Soundworks. We hope you enjoy this project as much as we enjoyed making it.

I had the honor and pleasure of producing the original World 1-2 alongside Mohammed for GameChops. Mohammed has relentless attention to detail and a skill for recruiting the very best of the game industry and vgm community. I have high hopes for Koopa Soundworks!

World 1-2: A Historic Collaboration Between Game Composers and Remixers

World 1-2We’ve seen a lot of video game remix and tribute projects on this site, but nothing quite like World 1-2. This project is massive, a twenty track album of exceptionally written and produced music. But what really makes this special is the roster, it contains some of the hottest game remixers, and some of the most respected game composers.

With names like Danimal Cannon, Benjamin Briggs and halc next to Manami Matsumae (MegaMan), Keiji Yamagishi (Ninja Gaiden), and grammy-nominated Austin Wintory (Journey), this project is nothing short of epic. World 1-2 is produced and directed by Mohammed Taher of Koopa Soundworks, published by GameChops and licensed by Joypad Records.

World 1-2 is now available! Order on Bandcamp and Loudr!
