Talk about a wonderful surprise of an album. If there is a game series I love for it's infectious, upbeat arrangements, it's definitely the Kirby games. Tekkaxe channels his inner Jun Ishikawa & Hirokazu Ando along with a touch of super hero lore, and uses that power to create an adventurous and eclectic album. Too bad this isn't a video game, now I'm a little bummed. This album will cheer me right up though, so I'm going to listen again!Read More
An intense dive into the music of Kirby Super Star. Jun Ishikawa became an instant favorite game composer thanks to his work on this classic Kirby game. DaMonz throws down a short but intense EP, taking on a variety of classic themes, most of which appear in the ten minute epic, Fluffball Rampage! With an awesome title track like that, I imagine the US release of this Roxanne Chartrand artwork will get the 'angry eyes'Read More
I begin the long journey towards becoming a puyo master while jamming to Urban Flow's latest album, Melodic Bumps 4. The album gets cut a bit short due to some technical difficulties, but I plan for this series to continue so long as there is new music to bump! So be prepared for the bass, and the puyo blobs to drop.
More amiibo unboxing. Two for one on this episode as I unbox both Ness and King Dedede
Have my dreams become reality? It's about damn time I hear a remix from quite possibly the most underrated game, series, puzzler, and many other things, Kirby's Avalanche (AKA Puyo Puyo)!
I've been a hardcore Puyo fan ever since the reskinned Kirby's Avalanche debuted on the SNES nearly 20 years ago, and I am very glad to hear one of the many wonderful themes get the loving and epic remix it deserves. Thanks to Megalixir for making a VGM dream come true. I plan to have a complete review on the full Megalixir album soon, so stay tuned, or bookmark the Megalixir tag, or something!
Kirby's endless appetite makes OC ReMix #3029, if you're keeping count.
Some Kirby based beats by way of Super Smash Bros.
Listen to this hot fusion from the remix duo of Singularity and Mutrix, setting fire to this classic track with a little help from the participants of Smash Bros.
The cutest pink puffball known to humanity just got metal as fuck. Dethraxx lays down an intense heavy metal rendition of Gourmet Race from the SNES (and now 3DS) classic Kirby Super Star.
Head bang, which for Kirby, means his entire body, to this.

Only four tracks and MissingNo, an up-and-coming band straight out of Vancouver, are already working their way into my jaded cold heart. Soulful renditions of video game standards such as Ducktale's The Moon and Donkey Kong Country 2's Stickerbrush Symphony are simply moving. What really hits this four track EP out of the park is the beautiful and evocative jazz blues somberly flowing on possibly one of my favorite video game tracks of all time, the criminally underrated Meta Knight's Revenge from Kirby Superstar.
MissingNo are also seeking to finish up their full-length debut album, and can use your help to reach that goal. Be sure to check out their indiegogo fundraising page for more details.
MC Larny with a Monday you can look forward to. Electorized, glitched, and dubbed is how Kirby gets on Pink Monday. MC Larny brings crashing drums and heavy mixes to the table in his most recent Project Nightmare release.
Expect me to talk quite a bit about MC Larny, since he has an unbelievable wealth of albums. I have begun to check them out, and all great so far. All great.
I couldn't drop the knowledge of Super Smash Land without giving away the goodness of flashygoodness and the Super Smash Land Hidden Tracks. This album contains exactly one awesome Ocarina of Time medley, not to mention a funky Lavender Town remix.
An alternate reality where Sakurai never wanted to stop making Game Boy games, the soundtrack of which is provided by Inverse Phase. I wonder if the Japanese version of this album art has the happy Kirby on it?
Great musician and friend of the website, Lucas Park, has recently set to work on a compilation project for one of my favorite games ever, Kirby Super Star! Looks like GM4A will be hosting this compilation with help from Hotdog Storm. Here's the official press release! I say definitely join up!
"Kirby's Super Star Compilation!
Come one, come all. It's a tribute to one of the greatest SNES games ever! Have you ever felt yourself playing this game and wonder, "Man, this song would sound great remixed!" or "Oh Man, I have a sweet cover idea for this song!"
Well now you have your chance to do so and to be on a compilation album while you're at it!
I'm looking for all sorts of music from Rock, to Dance, to Nerdcore! you name it, I want it! I want this album to be completely diverse!
Most of all though, I want you to have fun with this compilation! Do something wild, add something original to it, make the track fresh! With this in mind, you can create anything you could want in your wildest dreams. The point of this album is to surprise and recreate the moments that made this game such a classic!
With enough persuasion, we may also have a B-Side with general Kirby Music, but for now, Kirby's Super Star is our main focus!
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me (Lucas) at dpk4 AT mac DOT com, my myspace page, or the GM4A forums (Check under the hosted projects, Lucas Park's Kirby's Super Star Compilation) and I'll try to get back to you as soon as possible!
Thank you and I hope to hear from many of you soon!"

Not having internet is like being in a coma. But none of that now! Firstly, I sincerely apologize to everyone for not updating and falling behind on news, updates, etc. Secondly, The utmost thanks to Jephso for continuing to update the sight in my absence, I can not thank him enough for the help!
So anyway, I won't be able to update every day like I strove for in the past (at least not yet). but I will definitely be posting regularly again! I have a couple of reviews coming up, some great interviews from my good pal Dot.AY that I have been meaning to post, as well as a few other ideas and such. Finally we also got a new "Tip Line" up in the top right for you folks to send your VGM tips to us, so we can get the news to the people posthaste! And as an apology gift I give you this fan-made video I made for Entertainment System's song Kirby's Dreamland 3
Also, thanks to all our readers, fans, and friends who make this website a continued success, despite my constant blunders!
