Fergie vs Sonic the Hedgehog

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Sonic the Hedgehog’s overwhelming influence on the world of pop continues with this superb mash-up by Afriquedeluxe, in which he juxtaposes the classic Sonic 1 Green Hill Zone theme with Fergie’s 2007 single Glamourous.

Not only is it a substantial improvement over the original, it’s also possibly the most exciting development to hit the R&B/pop scene since Janet Jackson nicked the melody from Bridge Zone for her 1997 hit Together Again.

Bit.Trip.Beat, as Made in Ore

Friday, May 8th, 2009

This superb WarioWare: Made in Ore microgame ingeniously reprises the excellent Bit.Trip.Beat. If you’re unfamiliar with Made in Ore, it’s a WarioWare title which enables the creation of your own microgames, complete with custom graphics and music.

Chiptune app for Iphone

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

Michael Lauer recently released SID Player app which emulates the Commodore 64’s (6581 SID) audio circuit for a new generation of 8-bit musicians… which is nice.
Whether it can deliver the raspy bass of a Classic Gameboy remains to be seen/heard.
