Now this is what I am about. DJ Super Sonic. Sorry. DJ SUPER SONIC, drops an EP of club rocking street fighter II remixes in SUPER BASS FIGHTER TURBO. Five all time classics of VGM are tuned for the dance floor, and all available at any price over on DJ SUPER SONIC's bandcamp page. Every track in Street Fighter II is a Yoko Shimomura composed masterpiece, and DJ SUPER SONIC takes a select few and turns them into an intense dance riot.
Very hot rhymes by ayekincaid. I would name the stand out tracks but this album just has tracks I like. That multi-part opener is fire. I already bumped a track or two on the SUBCON podcast as soon as I heard this one. Don't sleep on this like I did. A few of these tracks have been bumping in my head ever since I started listening this album. Hope that downloadable version is really coming through soon though.Read More
This artwork was popular enough on Seven Out of Ten a few months ago to end up featured in a Weekly Recap, but Endling's art is definitely worth it's own individual post.
Take a look at this beautiful drawing of the strongest woman in the world, Chun Li from Street Fighter II and 3, and IV.
Incredible full length piano medley featuring classic music from 14 different sixteen bit masterpieces. Class up the joint with these somber renditions of Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario RPG, Street Fighter II, and even Mortal Kombat. The sixteen bit journey if a full length 40 minute medley that is worth every note.
Sidenote: I love that a Super Famicom controller is used on the image for this "Super Nintendo" music album, but of course, i'm a bit of a nerd for such minor details.
Only about two more weeks until things start to really take shape here on GM4A, unfortunately, things that move quickly for me behind the scenes may not appear so quickly for readers of this site. Rest assured though, blocks are being pushed on to switches, and cracked walls are getting exploded, all in the name of more VGM news.

Big band jazz rendition of the very familiar opening theme to Street Fighter II. Hope this track from back in February is just a small taste of another forthcoming album. My mind always salivates at the thought of more International Dub Ambassadors.

The Cartridge Champion contains remixes the likes of Street Fighter, Chrono Trigger, and, best of all, one epic Earthbound beat. Someone rap on it quick!

This past weekend I had the chance to head out to Gallery Nucleus for the opening of Jab, Strong, Fierce, which is the title of the recent Street Fighter tribute art show put together by I Am 8-Bit and Capcom to celebrate nearly two decades of Street Fighter greatness. There was plenty of awesome art on hand, raffles, a cosplay contest, live music (sadly no SF2HDRemix tunes though), an EVO sponsored Street Fighter 4 tournament, and more! I even ran into my good pals at RadNerd.com (I even helped record a segment with them, no idea when and where that will be posted though) and had a chance to meet the man behind I am 8-Bit. Of course I took plenty of photos from the show. You can check out some of my favorites below, and check out all the art and fun from the show through my photobucket.
It was a great time of course, and you can check out the exhibit yourself by heading down to Gallery Nucleus before May 11th when the show will come to a close.
My good friend at Into the Score, has uploaded Episode 17 in his amazing podcast that "seeks to be an in-depth and academic look at video game music, exploring the composers, the pieces and the games that they’re written for!" This week they look into the amazing music from Street Fighter II, which includes a look at composers like Yoshihiro Sakaguchi, Tatsuya Nishimura, Isao Abemy and one of my personal favorite video game composers, Yoko Shimomura (who also did the fantastic Super Mario RPG soundtrack, which we will be paying tribute to). Anyway, be sure to listen in to the newest episode, and if you haven't, hurry up and subscribe to this podcast, and listen in to some classic episodes that tackle the music from Metroid, Mega Man and more!
