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.

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:

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:

Clockwork
The desperately too short Chrono series remains today one of the most beloved J-RPG series of all time. We decided to make a tribute to Chrono Trigger and Cross with this album and to salute the genius composer Yasunori Mitsuda.

Disc 2 streaming

The Great Tale of the Little Ones
Indie games have been more and more successful last years with hits like Super Meat Boy, the binding of Isaac and more recently Undertale. If those independent games can offer new ideas and concept, gameplay and/or story wise, they are also an amazing playground for composers and naturally for us, cover artists.

Catch This!
That’s crazy how time flies, isn’t it?
Yes, that game we all played, the 1st generation of Pokemon turned 20 years old in 2016. It’s the good occasion to take a huge load of nostalgia thanks to Junichi Masuda’s music revisited by our community.
