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.

Anything and everyone goes. 

The folks over at GameLark Records have recently dropped a collection of remixes, covering both well tread classics and sneaky good niche titles. Metroid and CastleVania get their time in the spotlight, along with some of that new age retro like Kingdom Hearts, Shovel Knight, and Banjo-Tooie. Even relatively recent games such as Shovel Knight and Dark Souls get rearranged in this eclectic collection of VGM.

GameLark Records Volume 1 presents a listening experience like no other. Some of the most unique artists in the video game music community gathered together to provide a sampling from every genre imagineable. Listeners will enjoy pulsing electronic beats, blistering metal solos, soulful jazz compositions, and peaceful orchestral arrangements. This album is as diverse as the community that it represents. No two tracks are the same, but all tracks will delight.

A special thanks goes to all of the artists on GameLark Records, but especially Ro Panuganti (my guru) for all of his help with the album.
