FREE MIXTAPE DOWNLOAD: Team Teamwork – “Super Nintendo Sega Genesis”

As video game music has become more mainstream, or at least more popular thanks to outlets like OverClocked Remix, I think it’s safe to say that, as a genre, geek beat is closer to hip-hop than anything else – and that’s before cats like Dan the Automator started doing full soundtracks.

Whereas a lot of critics loathe the simplicity in gamer funk, I’ve always dug them. In particular, two dope bit-inspired cuts that come to mind are Big Shug and Statik Selektah’s “Punch-Out,” and U-N-I’s “Castlevania“.

This here Team Teamwork joint is competently mixed, which isn’t always easy when you’re tweaking one-dimensional sound effects. The Lupe track is especially dope, and even a little bit hilarious for some reason.

Being an amateur gamer and a hip-hop snob, I can appreciate the MC selections, but only get the comfort food willies from about half of the game backdrops. Nonetheless, hella wired rap fanatics are sure to have a good squirt over more than a few of these.

  1. Ludacris – Roll Out (Street Fighter 2)
  2. Biggie, Craig Mack, Rampage, LL Cool J & P. Daddy Combs – Flava In Ya Ear (Donkey Kong Country 2)
  3. Childish Gambino – Let Me Dope You (Streets of Rage)
  4. Big Boi & Cutty – Shutterbugg (Super Metroid)
  5. Lupe Fiasco – I Gotcha (Sonic 3)
  6. Dr. Octagon – Blue Flowers (Yoshi’s Island)
  7. Ghostface Killah – The Champ (Ristar)
  8. Gang Starr – The Squeeze (Super Mario RPG)

    […] Time Out Boston asked me to make a mix for them and after reading Lil Faraonie’s post on JTTS about Team Teamwork, I geeked out and complied this all 8-bit, Chiptune and video game-inspired release — […]
