PAST MEETS PRESENT : A REMIX ALBUM
The story of the Retro GMB is a long one, but one that expresses our mission as fans of gaming soundtracks - we've built our own success on the backs of these legendary composers, and it's our honor to help them breathe new life into the works that caused us to fall in love with video game music in the first place.
We knew many of our friends - indie game composers, many of whom have been on past Game Music Bundles - would feel the same way, so we worked out a deal to produce an exclusive Duke Nukem Remix Album, which we're throwing in with the level 2 items! The album features 13 of the most outrageously ridiculous remixes we've ever rocked out to, from names like:
The Blake Robinson Synthetic Orchestra
Hyperduck Soundworks (two tracks, one feat. Stemage)
Coda & DJ Bouche
Alex Brandon (who loved the idea so much, he had to throw on a remix of his own!)
