Both Shnabubula and sci-fi sports game fiction both hold a special place in my heart. It's the best of both worlds with the latest spo-sci-fi music collection Cybersoccer 4141. 

Cybersoccer 4141 was the much anticipated follow up to the arcade smash Cybersoccer 2099 offering bigger better visuals and sound, the release scored major goals for its publisher.

In order to celebrate this hugest of successes, this 5 tack arrange/medley EP was made, Unfortunately it was a Jupiter exclusive, until now as it is FINALLY getting an earth-side release.

This EP is also a prequel, taking place 10 thousand years before the universe shattering events of the upcoming EPIC “Cosmic Diaspora” Stay Tuned and enjoy! LET US YEAH TO THE MOMENT!

GameLark releases expansive Final Fantasy series tribute Mog's Mixtape

Over 2 hours of remixes by dozens of video game inspired musicians. All in tribute to the beloved music of the Final Fantasy series. From the NES classic to the current era of big budget titles, this collection from GameLark spans years of classic gaming moments and themes.

Mog’s Mixtape is a loving tribute to the Final Fantasy series featuring over 30 artists and 2 hours of covers. The album features music from every main game in the series, from Final Fantasy I to XIV, and even Final Fantasy Tactics. With a vast array of genres represented, Mog’s Mixtape is the most dynamic and eclectic album that GameLark has released to date. In fact, the variety and volume of music required a different approach to the album arrangement. “Given the sheer amount of music on the album, it made sense to separate this into two distinct musical journeys,” says Allen Brasch, GameLark creator and manager. “Disc 1 is a more light-hearted affair with battle themes and beautiful soundscapes. Disc 2 presents a more arduous journey and ends with the Game Over theme. Each disc stands on its own and can be experienced individually or together. It’s really the listener’s choice.” No matter how you decide to listen to this album, the works of Nobuo Uematsu and other composers will come to life in captivating ways. Final Fantasy is a series revered for its music, and with Mog’s Mixtape, we hope to honor that legacy.

Intense EDM from bLiNd in the Klang Original Soundtrack

The Klang Soundtrack is a collection of 34 original tracks featured in the game. Each track was composed by veteran EDM artist and OverClocked ReMix video game music remixer, bLiNd. (The Klang Soundtrack is also YouTuber/Twitcher friendly.)

Klang is an innovative take on traditional rhythm games that pushes the genre beyond pressing buttons to tempo into a world of fast-paced exploration, platforming and combat.

In Klang, players assume the role of a tuneblade-wielding, elite rave warrior on a quest to free himself from the shackles of Soundlord Sonus. Become one with the music as you battle your way through increasingly challenging levels, timing every action and attack to audio visual cues.

Set to the music of legendary EDM composer, bLiNd, Klang is an adrenaline rush sure to challenge even the most skilled of multitaskers.

Treasure Buster Original Soundtrack is a love letter to Sega Genesis by Norrin_Radd

Norrin Radd drops an infectious collection of Sega Genesis FM chip based arrangements, 

This is Norrin_Radd meets Sega Genesis!

It is my humble pleasure to be able to present this album to all of you. I have to thank Reggie Schreiber for putting this project together and for letting me get *plenty* weird with the music. The entire soundtrack is written using accurate Sega Genesis 4OP FM synthesis, and accurate percussion.

Follow my ongoing series “Treasure Buster Composition Methods” on YouTube for an inside look at how all this crazy stuff was created and what my influences were.

And don’t forget to play the game! Reggie has outdone himself in every possible way and is a fantastic collaborator! Without him I wouldn’t have had the ability to dedicate 4 months making and paying tribute to Sega Genesis FM music!

Wondering what the big deal is about FM? Check out the #SummerOfFM

Theophany returns to Termina in 'Time's End II: Majora's Mask Remixed'

Theophany returns with a sequel to one of his most popular albums. Time's End II rearranges ten more memorable themes from the Nintendo 64 classic Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask. It's been nearly four years since the original Time's End was released, and folks like I are still more than excited for more remixes from perhaps the most misunderstood game in the Zelda franchise.

Time’s End II is the follow up to Theophany’s original remix album of Majora’s Mask, released in 2012. Building on the apocalyptic themes of Majora’s Mask, the new album explores Link’s journey through Woodfall and the southern swamps of Termina. The first album focused on Link’s struggle during the 3-day cycle while Disc 2 builds toward the first major turning of the game. It harkens back to the players’ feelings of hope as Link discovers a way to stop the moon from falling. This free album is a tribute to Majora’s Mask and a thank you to fans who have patiently supported Theophany since the release of Disc 1.
