Final Fantasy II may be one of the least loved of the series, both about it’s gameplay or music, it still have some wonderful pieces of music such as the Main Theme, the town Theme or the really famous Chocobo Theme !
We tried to give justice to those melodies that we all really love.

If you need to listen to it a bit before downloading, you can check the trailer here:

Pixel Mixers April Cover Contest Results

Hello people, it’s time for the review of April cover contest results !
The theme was “Villain Themes” and it was full of surprises.

Even if there was a bit less participants it was full of surprises like members making big collabs, people really trying new music style or some really original arrangements completely changing the mood from the original.

My last point was referring to the audio winner of this month, Orchestral Fantasy with his crazy salsa version of Kefka’s Theme from Final Fantasy VI.
At the 2nd and 3rd places we have the 2 leaders of the 2017 Pixel Mixers championship: Subversiveasset and PrjzCalavera.

About the video contest it’s a victory for Subversiveasset followed by PrjzCalavera and at the 3rd place we have a tie between the heavy SwigglesRP and the Epic Italian Team composed of Psamathes, Dacian Grada and Danilo Ciaffi.

PrjzCalavera keeps the lead at the 2017 audio championship, followed by Subversiveasset who took the 2nd place to Hashel (who didn’t enter this month). At the 4th place there is a tie between SwigglesRP and Dancian Grada, finally at the 5th place is this month’s winner: Orchestral Fantasy.

The May contest‘s theme is “Dance” so you can pick any VGM song you like as long as your arrangement make people want to dance =)

Ace Attorney – The Court Sessions [EP]

Hey VGM friends, I have the pleasure to introduce you our 1st EP (mini-album)!

EPs goal is to give some love to shorter soundtracks, less known games/series or just OST that we wouldn’t do as a big full album.
And to start we decided to make a tribute to the Ace Attorney Series and especially those 3 games: Phoenix Wright, Trials and Tribulations, Apollo Justice.

You can download our album for free by clicking on this picture =>

The Court SessionsOr directly with this link: http://bit.ly/2pj9g7E

This EP has 9 songs, arrangement and played by 12 musicians from the Pixel Mixers community and lasts a bit more than 25 minutes.

The original musics were composed by:
-Masakazu Sugimori (Phoenix Wright OST)
-Noriyuki Iwadare (Trials and Tribulations OST)
-Toshihiko Horiyama (Apollo Justice OST).

Ace Attorney (or Gyakuten Saiban in the original title) is a series of visual-novel games developed by Capcom. The games feature some investigations phases where you have to collect informations and find clues and then the trial phases where you have to find the contradictions in the testimony of the witnesses and use your logic to show the evidences at the right time.

This EP has a lot of musical variety and is the best representation of the Pixel Mixers Community in a nutshell. On this EP you’ll hear: orchestral music, smooth jazz, piano solo, blues, rock, metal, atmospheric folk or even dance music.

If you need a taste of it before downloading, here is the official trailer:

So what do think about this album? Have you enjoyed it?

Pixel Mixers March Cover Contest Results

An other great contest month has gone by.
This time we had the chance to welcome some new members such as Piano PeyCa or Psamathes.
The theme was “Overworld” and it was the opportunity to have some creative rendition of some really classic tunes.

And for the first time we have a tie at the first place of the audio contest.
Subversiveasset and Piano PeyCa both share the highest step of the podium.
And as funny as it sounds they both were a guest on each-others video, which meant they weren’t allowed to vote for each-others, that makes their victory even more impressive !

And even more crazy there is also a tie for the video contest between PrjzCalavera (ft. Psamathes) and the new member Piano PeyCa.
Prjz used some incredibly beautiful landscape from his homeland Sardinia and Piano PeyCa used many different camera angles for a clean and really professional montage.

After this month, PrjzCalavera keeps the lead on the 2017 championship, he is followed by Hashel05 and Subversiveasset.

The April Cover Contest theme is… VILLAINS, you can participate and read instructions here: https://www.reddit.com/r/VGCovers/comments/62t8ae/event_real_april_2017_pixel_mixers_vgm_cover/?st=j10owe1q&sh=61acd2d2

Rayman – Harmony

Hi friends, today i have the pleasure to announce that we are releasing a new album !
This one is called “Harmony” and it covers 25 songs from the Playstation 1 classic game “Rayman” developed by Ubisoft.

You can download our album for free by clicking on this picture =>

Harmony

Or directly with this link: http://bit.ly/2mIDMHc

Rayman on PSX was the first video game that I played when I was a child and because of that the game and its music both have a special place in my heart.
I wasn’t sure that many people would be motivated to join the album as the game wasn’t really successful outside Europe.
But once again the Pixel Mixers community showed much enthusiasm into participating and they delivered some amazing songs !

I hope that you, who’s going to listen to our album will take as much pleasure as we had working on those groovy songs by Rémi Gazel, the French original composer.

This album has a great variety of music styles due to the amazing original content, there are: jazz, metal, prog rock, funky, electro, ethnic, ambient, pop… songs !

You can also listen to the FULL ALBUM directly on Youtube:

So what do think about this album? Have you enjoyed it?

Here is a poll I made with all the songs name, let us know which ones were your favourite (try to pick around 5-6 songs) => http://www.strawpoll.me/12614273

The composer is also working working on a tribute album here: http://www.raymanbyremi.com/
