Music

If you're spending your valuable time perusing our lovingly crafted website, chances are that you're probably quite the fan of Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda.

If so, we'd urge you to check out these two albums featuring music from both series transformed into '80s and '90s-inspired electronica. Both released through Gamechops and available to listen to in full on YouTube, these albums celebrate the rich history of their chosen franchises by exploring tracks from numerous games.

The first of the two, called 'Zelda & Chill', was produced by German beat-maker Mikel and mastered by Philadelphia-based Dj CUTMAN. We've got a full tracklisting below the video if you'd like to check out particular songs. You can also buy the album from Amazon, or stream it from Spotify and more.
