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!

And guess what? You can listen to it directly on Youtube!

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 =>

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

You can also vote for your favourite songs of the album!

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!

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 =)

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
