Listen to 'Sunken Ship' Leandro Arbreu's Dire, Dire Docks guitar arrangement from Super Mario 64

This guitar driven rendition of Dire, Dire Docks has me flipping out right now. It's great stuff. Is there an OCReMix of the year ballot? Leandro Abreu definitely gets my vote thus far.

Super Mario 64 - Ending Theme Cover by Game & Sound - YouTube

I'm just an unbelievably huge fan of this theme, itdefinitely makes my top 3 staff rolls of all time. Kondo kills it on this ending, it's like he took his skills to a new dimenstion much like Mario himself.

G&S kicks some ass too, both musically as well as in the new additions he's been adding to his videos lately.

This is my arrangement for the Ending/Credits Theme from Super Mario 64.

Mario 64 has been the very first 3D game I’ve ever played. I still remember the novelty of the concept of being able to move in 3 dimensions, and all the fun I had with this game. This theme unironically makes me get emotional every time I listen to it, and I thought it was about time to make a cover of it.

Hope you’ll enjoy it.

The original composers of this track is Koji Kondo.

Listen to Tetrimino's jazz arrangement of 'Inside the Castle Walls' from Super Mario 64

The low key lobby music gets a grand five minute tribute

Check out our new Tetrimino performance "Inside the Castle Walls" from Super Mario 64 on the N64! Our jazz fusion remix does the unthinkable-- expands the simple song into a 5 minute jazzy piece!

This is our contribution to the “Operation: 1-UP” video game music cover album. All proceeds will go to John Means, a young teenager who is currently suffering from kidney failure. The money raised will help cover the cost of John’s medical expenses, including the dialysis treatments and kidney transplant.

Because the title of the album is called "Operation: 1-UP", we decided to cover another song from Super Mario 64. We chose a song that's not often covered, but we're sure you'll remember "Inside the Castle Walls"!

Even though this song is meant to be subtle background music, we created an arrangement to be much more dynamic. We incorporated viola to cover the lower harmonic notes, making more space for the piano. Add some groovy bass and upbeat drums, and you have a full-fledged arrangement of the music that you hear inside Princess Peach's castle!

We hope you enjoy the nostalgia!

Listen to Draskon's Super Mario 64 - Starman (Wing Cap) Theme cover

Incredible arrangement of the empowering Super Mario 64 Wing Cap music. The N64 launch title Super Mario 64 remains one of my all time favorite soundtracks. Song for song, some of the most memorable music in any game I've ever played, or Videogame OST I've ever heard. 

Laughed the Boy releases Bits and Bytes, an album of Nintendo rock rearrangements

Toronto seems to be host to Canada's own litany of video game cover bands. Well looks like one more can be added to the list. Laughed The Boy has released their first album of video game rearrangements, known as Bits and Bytes.

The group pays special attention to Nintendo produced games, including classics like Donkey Kong Country 2 and Legend of Zelda Ocarina of TIme.

My personal favorite on the album so far have been the aforementioned DKC2 remix known as "Forest Interlude." Though the relaxed guitar style present on "Dire Dire Docks (Mario 64)" comes in a very close second.

Find your own favorites on the full album, which is available for free download via bandcamp.
