Download this thing. DJ J-Ball and Sonic in some crazy mixed up and mashed up Sonic grooves, beats. All that stuff. It get's pretty intense.
UPDATE: Looks like J-Ball went all out, added more music and even renamed the album. Even better than when I wrote about it! The original blog post is below.
I have written about DJ J-Ball's awesome remixes and beats in the past, but due to the fact that some artists and musicians erase or move their music about the internet in no easily discernable fashion, my old J-Ball based blogs will not see the light of day.
Imagine my surprise to find this album worth of bumping new beats from DJ J-Ball. Classic and casual, vintage and fresh games get the New York style remix treatment from J-Ball on The MAGFest Album.
Although this album came out last year, MAGFest is right around the corner. So I'm as timely with this post as I'll ever be.
Drop it like it's holy water.
This epic pair of mini mixtapes from DJ SUPER SONIC (all caps, naturally) gets whips cracking and asses dropping. I imagine that once the Belmonts dispose of old Drac, they throw some epic house parties throughout the mansion. Disco balls attached to Medusa heads, twerking in the gear room, and you know the party don't stop 'til sunrise.
Both albums are a mix of club ready beats, which meld perfectly with the ever malleable tunes of the original Castlevania, composed by Kinuyo Yamashita AKA James Banana. I'm seriously in love with each and every track on the original CV OST, and hearing them get some amazing dance club remixes just helps me appreciate them more. Whether they are hardcore spped metal covers, or booty shaking dance music, the original CV should be everyone's choice for most coverable / remixable / mashupable all time OST.
As I type this, I'm slowly being murdered, in my own home by this unbearable desert heat. Alas, it's GRIMECRAFT to the rescue with an ice cold VG based mixtape to cool down to.
Lingering VGM, a relaxed aesthetic, and bass heavy futurism. In the endless heat, being able to just hit play and let the music wash over you in ebbs and flows can be a soothing experience.
Throw your power ups in the air
This remains one of my favorite battle themes from the entirety of the FFIX series (at least, if Battle on the Big Bridge never existed)
What are some of your favorite battle themes from the Final Fantasy series?
It's a mutha fuckin' Tadpole Party!
Listen to this over the top party jam by AJ DiSpirito inspired by Super Mario RPG Legend of the Seven Stars.
As should be well known by now, my favorite composer, Yoko Shimomura worked on this game. She not only providing a wealth of new tunes that continues to be used in Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi games to this day, but also rearranged classic music from both Super Mario's Koji Kondo, and Square-Enix composer Nobuo Uematsu to complete Super Mario RPG's enormous and vibrant soundtrack.
Not to mention, Shimomura also did the infinitely catchy, globe spanning music of Street Fighter II.
Heavy hitting club banger from a jack of all trackers.
"This is my first song that I made partially on my newly acquired DS with LSDJ. I also tried to make it as loud as possible to have a volume level similar to modern EDM productions. Hope you like it. :)
Everything (art & music) was made by me (Pete) with GIMP, KdenLive, SunVox, LSDJ & Audacity."
