about

Some time ago, I had an idea. See, these past few years I’ve been learning more about music production, getting better at the craft in terms of EQ, compression, mixing, mastering, reverb, etc. My gear has also significantly improved over what I used to have. Along the way, I’ve been thinking: hey, wouldn’t it be cool if I put my video game remixes – that simultaneously are homages to trackers that I grew up with – into a singular collection?

And wouldn’t it be cool if I remastered them first, so that they’d sound a bit more polished? Cleaner? More professional? I mean, a lot of these tracks were originally assembled and mixed a LONG time ago…

What you see here is just that. Most of these remixes have been completely rebuilt from their original release, painstakingly deconstructed into new layers via Schism Tracker, and ultimately re-mixed and re-mastered in ProTools. (Some of my more recent works, as well as the pieces from American Pixels, are the same as their original release.)

Enjoy! Many of these are among my personal favorites as an arranger and remixer, and I hope you’ll agree that they sound good together. This doesn’t include every single tracker homage I’ve ever done, but it’s most of them!

A few specifics:

Sagat’s Moonbike is an homage to "Donovan's Moonbike" by Radix

Tangerine Fever is an homage to "Tangerine Fascination" by Necros

Turtle Wave is an homage to "Nine One One" by WAVE

Space Garden is an homage to "Space Bar" by Virgill

Jackrabbit Transformer is an homage to "Carpe Diem" by Siren

Super Double Espresso is an homage to "Over Reacted" by Norfair

Slick Rippin Keen is a general homage to the style of Mick Rippon

Zombies Ate My Tracker is a general homage to the style of teenage Mazedude

Zapper’s Freedom is an homage to "Late Shift" by Zapper
