Atari Blitzkrieg's 'Super' hip hop album

super-atari-blitzkrieg-hip-hop-vgm

Rap tribute to over 20 years of SNES classics.

Released back in October of 2011 to celebrate the very important year that the SNES turned 20 years old. Blitzkrieg blasts through the 16-bit super classics with skill. Shout out to Nameless for the dope Actraiser beat! Cop the album physically, digitally, or in shirt form. Heavy rhymes, eclectic beats, bumping tunes.

The album kicks off with the masterful, simply unreal remix of my absolute favorite track from the Mother / Earthbound series. The baffling radio static of Dusty Dunes Desert. The original Hip Tanaka track struck a special cord with me, since growing up in Los Angeles meant many traffic jams in desert heat. This remix uses the original instrumental as a disorienting undercurrent to introduce a full album in tribute to the greatest console of all time.

Support: Temp Sound Solutions equipment upgrade and new music

I talk about the unique blend of video games and music that is Temp Sound Solutions relatively often on this blog, and in other venues which allow me to do so. Well I hope that there are now a few more TSS fans among you. 

It appears that Temp Sound Solutions are in need of new equipment for performing and recording, and you can help, as well as get tons of great music in the process.

Head over to the Temp Sound Solutions gofundme page to donate and read more. Donations can be made in any amount with rewards starting as low as $10, but reaching the $30 status of Powar Bronze grants you access to seven of Temp Sound Solutions' myriad releases, and in any format of your choosing, including CDs for many releases.

Larger donations net even greater rewards, including one I need to save up for, the $100 Powar Platinum level which yields either a song of your choosing written or covered by Temp Sound Solutions, or what I'm aiming for, the multi-DVD disc set of all the music created by Temp Sound Solutions. Either of these products also come with "a vial of tears of joy" from Shawn Phase himself.

Here is one of my favorite classic TSS tracks to get you in that donating mood.

Jake 'virt' Kaufman - Mighty Milky Way / Mighty Flip Champs OST release

Great games. That is what Mighty Flip Champs and Mighty Milky Way are. One of the qualities of a great game is great audio. Jake 'virt' Kaufman provides that great audio. Flipping and floating to your hearts content.

Download the games!

Dear WayForward, I am officially ending each post about you with some variation of, "Sigma Star Saga successor please!"

Random aka Mega Ran - River City Random album release

Mega Ran is back, and he's gone from Robot City to River City in his latest adventure. Run with Random as he raps right through the  rough roads of River City Random. Random lays down some dope rhymes about living in the fight or be fought world of River City. Hear some heavy beats, some catchy tunes, and help stop some bullying by grabbing this album.

An Hobbes - Diaries of a Space Cadet album release

Space is always important. I for one hope we continue to explore space, so that our descendants can rap about life in the slums of Saturn. An Hobbes tears open a window into this future in his Diaries of a Space Cadet. Half rap album, half classic radio drama.

Got to mention K-Murdock, producing the beats for my two favorite tracks on the album, Best Served Cold and the Trigun inspired Planet Gunsmoke.

@AnHobbes has also made this album pay what you want all this weekend!
