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.
-Mohammed Taher

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!

Cutman x Complex: An oldschool hiphop/video game mixtape

I recently had the oppertunity to create a unique mix for Complex Magazine’s Video Game section. Following their E3 coverage, Complex was looking for a way to showcase the classic chiptune video game sound. Being the old school hiphop head that I am, I rounded up some of the best mashup artists who had worked with my GameChops instrumentals.

With guys like OhhhREALY and BigGanga0 from YouTube, and DJ PsyQ from Soundcloud, and some beats DJ Grumble and I put together, I set off on a hectic week of mixing, mashing, and mastering. The end result can be heard right here on Complex magazine.

I hope you enjoy the mixtape! I’ve been wanting to do something like this for ages, and I’m happy I finally got the opportunity from Complex.

Instrumental versions of the mash-up tracks can be downloaded on my album GameChops Vol. 1
