We are really proud to present you our 3rd Charity album!

Pixel Mixers decided to go with relaxing/soothing covers of some of the most beautiful themes in VGM to make Tranquility a wholesome listening experience in support of SaveTheChildren.

Save the Children works hard to help children gain access to quality education and health services, support them in times of great need, and protect them from risks and harm. We work with the government in developing policies, plan and budgets to ensure that children, especially those living in poor communities all around the world, have access to quality basic services and have their rights protected. https://www.savethechildren.org/

Tranquility features 33 tracks from more than 50 musicians, featuring some of the chillest tunes from games like Final Fantasy VIII, Animal Crossing, Xenoblade, Chrono Cross, Wind Waker, Mario Galaxy, Undertale and many more!

And you can directly watch it on Youtube:

Thanks a lot to everyone who made this possible!

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time & Majora’s Mask: Sunrise & Moonfall [Tribute Album]

Today is the 31st of December 2020.
During this exhausting and nerve racking year, we worked on our newest huge album. This album is actually the 2nd largest album we’ve produced in our 5 year history.
From now on we’ll focus on relatively smaller projects.
The process took the full year, cost a lot of energy, but in the end it’s something we are all proud of!
So I’m very happy to introduce you to “Sunrise & Moonfall“, our tribute to the music from Majora’s Mask and Ocarina of Time!

This 4 disc album features 82 songs made by 98 musicians in a great variety of music styles ranging from traditional orchestral pieces and hard metal slam works, to smooth jazz suites and 80’s-style synthwave.

This album features 28 tracks by 30 musicians from the Pixel Mixers community.
Clocking in at almost 2 hours long, this is possibly the most coherent work we have ever done, both in terms of quality and musical style!
With the original music containing such a strong identity, people really went for that specific Ecco vibe with lot of synth, chill and surprising arrangements!

Final Fantasy IX – Beyond the Mist [Tribute Album]

Hey guys, I have the great pleasure to talk about what is to this day the biggest and (subjectively) best work by the Pixel Mixers community.
This album sets a milestone for us as a community and everyone’s time and efforts is finally rewarded by the release of this great project!
So let’s discover “Beyond the Mist” a Final Fantasy IX Tribute album.

You can download the full album (120 tracks) for free by clicking on this picture =>

FF_IX_final

Or directly with this link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/s6fh7a82m7zkidi/Pixel+Mixers+-+Beyond+the+Mist+%5BFinal+Fantasy+IX%5D.zip

This album features 120 tracks (the complete OST + some duplicates) made by as many musicians. The album is over 7 hours long !
We decided to divide this album into 6 “discs”:
A Night at Alexandria
Across the Hills
Of Rats and Men
Far from Home
Gaia & Terra
Bonus Tracks

While most of the songs follow the OST order, we decided to take some freedom and create some narrative arcs. This is especially true with the 1st disc that gathers songs related to characters or events linked to the city of Alexandria through the whole game.

We all hope you’ll enjoy our new takes on those fantastic songs composed by Nobuo Uematsu and the creative freedom we took with some of the songs.

Part 1: A Night at Alexandria

Part 2: Across the Hills

Part 3: Of Rats and Men

Part 4: Far from Home

Part 5: Gaia & Terra

Part 6: Bonus Tracks

Shovel Knight – Dig It! [Tribute Album]

As we are getting closer to 2019, we are still working on bunch of projects that we hope to release before the end of the year. And we just finished one of those, so please welcome our new mini-album: Dig It! a tribute to Shovel Knight music!

This album features 11 songs out of  the Shovel Knight franchise, all composed by Jake Kaufman.
We gathered more than 30 musicians and the total length of the album is more than 41 minutes!

This is maybe our most uplifting album with some really dynamic rock songs that will give you a nice adrenaline kick, Celtic/Irish rock songs that will make you want to dance all night long, Latino music that will make you travel to Brazil, fusion, electro and a bit of chill to take a deserved rest after so many emotions!

Castlevania (1986 – 1996) – Scarlet Night [Tribute Album]

Time flies, and we are already celebrating our 20th VGM Tribute Album!
And for that we needed to cover one of the most famous and beloved franchise: Castlevania!
For this album we decided to “only” cover songs from the games released between 1986 and 1996 to give ourselves the opportunity of making a 2nd Castlevania album in the future with the other games.
But for now, here is our Castlevania Tribute album: Scarlet Night

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

Or directly with this link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/7tut0kzyd268m7o/Pixel+Mixers+-+Scarlet+Night+%5BCastlevania+1986+-+1996%5D.zip

This album features 29 songs out of 11 games from the Castlevania franchise.
We gathered 41 musicians and the total length of the album is 88 minutes!

This might be our darkest and heaviest album so far, mostly due to the nature of the original product! But do not expect only metal, there are funk rock, electronic music, baroque and even some fusion-ish jazz tracks!

Secret of Mana – Whispers from a Verdant Grove [Mini-Tribute Album]

It’s been a while since our last Mini-Album, but it’s time to release a new one!
And for that we decided to make a tribute to the iconic OST of Secret of Mana, that was remade (for the best and worst).
And so “Whispers from a Verdant Grove” was born!

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

Or directly with this link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/u9279j7ujdtbdz4/Pixel+Mixers+-+Whispers+from+a+Verdant+Grove+%5BSecret+of+Mana%5D.zip

This Mini-Album features 14 songs from the soundtrack composed by Hiroki Hikuta for SquareSoft in 1993.
25 musicians worked on those rearrangements, the length of the album is a bit more than 49 minutes.

This is, I think, one of our most cohesive album since Huntress (our Metroid 2D Games Album), music style speaking, with a lot of acoustic instruments, like woodwinds or acoustic guitars, for the majority of the songs. And then a kind of old-school prog/fusion-ish feeling for the others.
Even if the few songs with a different style there is always a little something that feels like the songs go well together!
