I’ve downloaded over 700 video game remix songs from OverClocked ReMix. Once the last batch is finished downloading, it will put my video game music mp3 collection at well over 1 000 songs. I can’t say that I know all the music/games very well, but it is nice to have something playing in the background.
- OverClocked ReMix — Video game remixes.
- VGMix.com — More video game remixes.
- Minibosses — Probably the most famous video game remix band. They have three CDs out. I saw them perform at MAGFest last year, and they rocked the house.
- KFSS Studios — More video game remixers. Of particular note is the remix of the Brinstar (red area) theme from Super Metroid, “On Top of Jacob’s Ladder” (track 6 on “Project Majestic Mix“). This theme is one of my favourite pieces from the game. Kenji Yamamoto reused this music in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, for the Hydrodynamo Station in Torvus Bog. Incidentally, DarkeSword remixed this particular theme, and it can be found on his website.
- OneUp Studios — Another video game remix group. They just released a CD, The OneUps Volume 1, and it’s great.
- Dale North — A well-known video game remixer. Much of his music is soothing and chilled out. He is one of the founders of OneUp Studios. He also composes his own music, and that CD should be out soon.
- DarkeSword — Created a really cool electronic remix of the Phendrana Drifts theme from Metroid Prime, amongst other things.
- SuperGreenX — Specialises in electronic music. I like his trance remix of the save game music from Ico.
- djpretzel — Like others on this list, his music can also be found on OverClocked Remix. His musical stylings cannot be pinned down to one genre.
- Super Metroid Ultimate Collaboration Project — A full remixed soundtrack to Super Metroid. Some remixes are better than others. Didn’t particularly like the Brinstar red area remix, but everything else is pretty good.
- Metroid Metal — Rock remixes of songs from the Metroid series.
- Gaming FM — Streaming video game music radio. Sometimes the stream is down for whatever reason, but they do have a big selection. They also take requests.
- Video Game Music Archive — MIDIs of original video game music.
There are probably more video game music sites that I have missed, but this is what’s sitting in my Bookmarks at the moment.
