Looks like back in 2010, when the amazing Kid Icarus Uprising was barely announced to bring back our legendary NES era hero, The Icarus Kid (AKA Dan Crowdus) was hard at work with this upbeat look back at some of the tracks of that wonderful regular Nintendo past. Purchase and sample this release over through The Kid Icarus website and reminisce about traversing dungeons and climbing towers in pixelated 2D.
Enjoy a small sampling of the full thirteen tracks below.
Been rocking this album with mad swag as I hustle and grind. While I am trying to get mine, you should get this album. City of Thieves mashes up Himself of Shadowrunners’ swaggering lyrics against some wild video game beats. Max out that swag to 100% and start a New Game +.
Sick spits from J.3k and crew. Press Start and enter the dope rhythms and rhymes of The NES Sessions. Not one, but two Earthbound beats on this album that I got to mention. Heavy hitting rhymes over some banging game remixes that sound like they’re “worth a million points.”
A collection of covers to some of my favorite video game themes, including an evocative rendition of Stickerbrush Symphony from the wonderful DKC2 soundtrack. Through Self Deduction’s latest album Power Up! is here to rock your pants off, so make sure you have another pair before hitting play.
A short but sweet mix of catchy beats and familiar sounds. Let Gossip Stone show you all the sights and sounds in the city of Nostalgiaopolis. Imagine a disjointed memory randomly looping and jumping through your mind, all in a head bobbing rhythm.
Cure what ails your arcade-deprived heart with this retrotacular release from Gossip Stone.
Great games. That is what Mighty Flip Champs and Mighty Milky Way are. One of the qualities of a great game is great audio. Jake ‘virt’ Kaufman provides that great audio. Flipping and floating to your hearts content.

Dear WayForward, I am officially ending each post about you with some variation of, “Sigma Star Saga successor please!”

Beautiful renditions of well regarded video game music classic, as well as some equally strong but lesser known themes. Elaine Li and friends returns to the realm of VG music arrangements, culminating in Geshi Matsuri. This amazing album will class up any joint you happen to be in.
Wear something nice, because these arrangements are classy as hell.
Relax with some down tempo techno beats courtesy of Hollywood, Florida’s Masikus. The new album, Versus, features NES remixes that range from ominous to upbeat. Name your price, grab the album, then absorb it into your being.
