Playlists for the last few shows (finally)June 22nd, 2010 at 16:39
Since we switched from Blogger to Wordpress, I haven’t been very diligent about updating the site. I’d like to apologize, and give you guys the playlists for the past few shows along with some links to download the tracks.
RFG World 2 Level 17:
May 2010 Dwelling of Duels Competition: Every month VGMix.com holds a remixing competition. The catch? Each submission must contain a live instrument and must fit that month’s theme. In this case that theme was “music from ninja games!” Of course, this means a ton of Ninja Gaiden, but who can complain? Featured on this episode: Electric Ninjas Shoot Lightning, Flying Shurikens, Last . . . and Long Forgotten, Wrath of the Last Ninja, Ninja Gaiden Medley.
Overcoat’s More Stories from Megatropolis: This is the second album from OCRemixer Overcoat, and this time he is joined by his remixing buddy Skrypnyk on one track. Megatropolis feels like a well-conceived place, and the ambiance in tunes like Megatropolis by Night really sell it. Featured on this episode: Megatropolis by Night, Force Feedback, Powered Armour, Nanofrog, Ten Ton, OLED Sunrise.
Shiryu’s Shiryu’s Arcade Volume 2: Remixer Shiryu shares some excellent covers of Nintendo tunes in his second release. This album shows a wide range of musical styles, and Shiryu is at his most creative in his orchestral arrangement from Streets of Rage 2. Featured on this episode: Space Bound, Super Mario Land Suite, Beyond the Galaxy, Orchestral of Rage.
