Super Smash Bros inspired remix album 'Dairs & Bairs' by Emrls

Emrls drops a genre spanning synth tribute to the original twelve fighters from Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 64. Ten tracks in tribute to the ten franchises represented in the original SSB. No melee here folks. Although the classic status of the game doesn't stop Emrls from skipping the time stream and remixing music from modern day games such as Yoshi's Woolly World and Mother 3 alongside classic niche OSTs like Kirby's Block Ball.

When I discovered this album I couldn't even decide what I wanted to hear first. That SMB3 opener is on point, as I have already discussed. So that immediately caught my eye. Then I saw a remix of the relatively hot and new game Yoshi's Woolly World. Emrls lays out the audio equivalent of a bouncehouse, creating an upbeat mood throughout Splunked. Eventually I slapped myself together and became entranced by the infectious synth F-Zero medley, appropriately titled Mode 7.  Then there is this absolutely murderous jazz funk remix of Star Fox. This track makes Fox McCloud my favorite Smash character all over again.

Then theres  the hauntingly laid back tribute to Mother 3, Phlox Garden, which fuses some rough synths and light hearted tones into an entrancing beat. Emrls closes things out with the perfect summer tune, a laid back rendition of music from The Legend of Zelda Windwaker, which flows as gently as the wind itself. I's the prefect closing theme for the album,  

What if Super Smash Bros. 64 was made in 2016? What would that soundtrack be? I think it would sound something like this.

Dairs & Bairs is a collection of remixed Nintendo tracks based off each character representation in the original Super Smash Bros. The catch is that the songs that are remixed here, span the legacy of each franchise to date. Explore remixes from as recent as Yoshi’s Wooly World, to obscure off beat titles such as Kirby’s Block Ball. Genres span high energy dance music to laid back vibe music. Whatever your taste be, there’s something for everyone here to enjoy.
