Are you ready for some cool game-related music news? Of course you are!
88bit and Save Point have announced their latest collaboration – LoFi: Super Mario 64. That’s right, this album takes 11 iconic tracks from the much loved Super Mario 64 and makes them incredibly chilled for you to completely lose yourself in.
Music Label Curaga Records has just announced that they’re jumping into the world of Nintendo’s very own Mario with a brand new LoFi album, Video Game LoFi: Super Mario 64. From artists 88bit and Save Point, Video Game LoFi: Super Mario 64 is a nostalgic tribute to Koji Kondo’s beloved soundtrack. With gorgeous piano arrangements, warm analog synths and colorful re-harmonization, the album features 11 tracks that fuse cozy beats and reimagined melodies with jazzy LoFi undertones.
“This was a truly collaborative effort,” says artist 88bit, “I’m so glad Save Point approached me about making this with him. This album gave me an opportunity to take the Super Mario 64 songs and reshape and present them in a new light – chill lo-fi.”
88 bit goes on to say how the album has given the songs a unique transformation while staying true to the original. “I’m excited for many of my friends in the VGM community to listen to these tracks. And I’m hopeful that these songs will find their way to people all over, and that those who love the music from Super Mario 64 (and even those who may not be familiar) will enjoy these recordings as much as we’ve enjoyed making them.”
Sounds awesome, right? We personally cannot wait to get our hands on that stunning cassette tape, but if you can’t wait to listen, it is available on streaming serviced right now. The album is available for pre-order right now on CD and cassette tape from The Materia Store or Bandcamp.
