Mega Man 11 Music

Mega Man 11 Block Man
Heat Man (Mega Man 2) vs. Block Man (Mega Man 11)

You are probably as happy as I am, now that Capcom finally released Mega Man 11. The game is really looking great; full of the Mega Man legacy we all love, while also adding modern touches to the game.

The music is also wonderful again! Some tracks (Dr Wily Stage theme, Impact Man, Fuse Man) really got me jumping around at a first listen. Others I had to give a few spins before fully appreciating them, but overall I must say I find it a really inspiring soundtrack again.

Capcom really abandoned the retro 8-bit chiptune elements from the music now, but the compositions and structures of the songs are still in a really recognisable Mega Man style. The production (sounds) are just more 2018 now, which is an understandable choice, even for a chiptune-affecionado like myself 🙂

As good as it all sounds, I still cannot resist the temptation of making my own renditions of the Mega Man 11 soundtrack. They will probably have a bit more of a rock feel – with some chiptune elements here and there – instead of the more EDM sounding originals. I am working on them now (happy days for me 🙂 ) and will try to get an album out as soon as possible.

I already have a demo of the Mega Man 11 main theme audio here. Check it out if you like 🙂

Super Mario Odyssey Music: Jump Up Super Star!

Hi there Plumbers and Princesses 🙂

This week is the Big Week: Super Mario Odyssey is coming out on Nintendo Switch! And to celebrate, I just released my first ever track with vocals: an alternate take on the Super Mario Odyssey theme song: “Jump Up, Super Star!”. Please check it out on Spotify, Apple Music / iTunes, Google Play Music, Deezer, Amazon MP3, SoundCloud and YouTube.

To get the vocals I really wanted for this track, I worked with the wonderful Florida based singer Athena Dawn, who had her studio up and running again just in time after the damage done by hurricane Irma last month. I’m really excited about the result, and I hope you’re too!

I’m always happy to hear your thoughts. Enjoy your Odyssey!

 

PS If you’re hungry for some more Nintendo Switch music: I did a The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild album too! It’s out on SpotifyApple Music / iTunesDeezer and Amazon MP3.
