Hey, this is my first post so yoroshku onegai shimasu . For years now I've been kinda collecting old-school game inspired tracks...
these days there's plenty of kids making gameboy tracks and hip-hop, grime and electro are full of all kindsa retro bleepage which is great but I really like tracks that are a nod to a particular game or about gameing generally although alot of them are fairly mediocre beyond novelty value... here's a list of some of the tracks i'm talkin about... if anyone can add to it i'd be interested to hear what u got...
powerpill > pacman
dj rob > mario beat (Video game sounds v1 dj tool)
nextmen > hi - scores
computer rockers > galaxy defender
luke vibert > viddin session
funkaho > my 2600
and a bunch of random bedroom tracks off the web... super galang etc, pacman hip-hop beat,
if anyones interested i got a strange cheesy japanese mario track with vocals in japanese about playing famicom on my brand new (alterior motive) blog here : http://drtyshdws.blogspot.com/
probably be posting some other stuff from this list and all kinds of grime / electronic / jungle / breakcore / hip-hop / pop / dub nonsense in the coming months so... if yr interested...
