Remix Default is a collaboration between New Jersey musician Ralfington and Philadelphia DJ / producer Dj CUTMAN. Remix Default re-creates the theme music of each of the four main characters from the Bravely Default soundtrack, originally composed by Revo.
Remix Default is a fusion of retro-sounding Chiptunes and futuristic EDM. Ralfington transcribed the songs onto his 3DS using Korg’s DS10 software. Dj CUTMAN mixed and mastered the songs using the popular audio production software Ableton Live.
GameChops is an electronic game music record label; It’s first of its kind to release licensed video game remixes. There have been many websites and other sources of great video game remixes, but no organization dedicated to legally clearing game covers and directly supporting those who make them. That is, until now.
I started GameChops back in April of 2012, intending it to be a simple netlabel. But in August of 2012, our album The Triforce of Bass hit #1 on Bandcamp, and I realized that I could do more with this idea. Thanks to the awesome guys at Joypad Records in San Francisco, we were able to start clearing licenses for our remixes with the companies that made the original games. Now, in 2013, we’re making that our mission.
By clearing the rights, it allows us to post our tracks without fear copyright complaints on major music outlets like iTunes, Spotify and Amazon. Furthermore, it allows our remixes to be used in broadcast and syndication, which is impossible prior to clearing the rights. It’s a very exciting idea for me to think about a time when a game company like Capcom or Microsoft might reach out and request a remix for use in their game. In fact, it’s already happening.
Titled simply “Game Music Record Label” this album contains new tracks and last year’s favorites! To say Thank You for the support we’ve seen thus far, the album will be set to “Name-Your-Price” for the first week. Please contribute what you can, all proceeds go to cover licensing and supporting GameChops.
