A loving tribute to Pokemon with 'PokéMemories Vol.02' by Pokérus

Another heartfelt tribute to the infectious and nostalgic themes of the Pokemon series. No one does tributes the best selling Nintendo RPG quite like Pokerus. Clearly, from the name, you can tell Pokerus' music is quite intertwined with Pokemon. As such the attention and style of this album is quite impressive, and a great listen for Pokemon fans of any generation.

From Guardia With Love, Richie Branson's hard hitting hip hop tribute to Chrono Trigger and more

I had the chance to catch Richie Branson perform at MAGWest a couple months back, and what a performance it was. Definitely got to catch this guy live, if you have the opportunity. This is his album from 2013, and also happens to be the album Branson sold to me, and then signed for me at MAGWest. It was the only album he had on him, but still, sold! It's not often I hear an album on CD.

Chopped up, hip hop tribute to games, anime, and more by Chief Takinawa in Hannya The 2nd: Blossoms

Chopped up, hip hop tribute to games, anime, and more by Chief Takinawa in Hannya The 2nd: Blossoms

Another wonderful album of chopped, flipped, and remixed beats via DJ Chief Takinawa. I've been following this guy for a few years now and have found constant enjoyment with his tunes. These tracks would feel right at home in a cel shaded bullet hell game. Really digging this album. I would have included the dope Gorillaz remix REPAIRS on the SUBCON podcast, but don't want to get hit with another blocked video on YouTube. You better give it a listen right now though. Track 5 yo.

An eclectic tribute to the music of Super Metroid, 'C A Z A D O R A' from the Pixel Quemado collective

An eclectic tribute to the music of Super Metroid, 'C A Z A D O R A' from the Pixel Quemado collective

Covering the music of the Metroid series is very hit or miss. Stray too far from the source material and it can be too different from the ambient sounds of planet Zebes, or SR388, etc. Play it too close to the source material and now it's too ambient and ominous to be true listening music. Well the Pixel Quemado crew has a handle on the fickle music of Metroid and so they have dropped over a dozen tracks in a variety of styles, and all dedicated to possibly the best damn game ever made.

Materia Collective presents the SPIRA collection, two albums of 100 tracks dedicated to Final Fantasy x

Sorry it took me so long to review this album, but I had to listen to it first! I grew a beard in that time. Okay, sorry. This is a legitimately grandiose album that is well worth sitting down and listening through 100 incredible and loving tributes to the PS2 classic Final Fantasy X.
