Materia Collective Releases Diddy Kong Racing Tribute and New Danse Macabre

Hi, everyone! I’ve got a few new (and some not so new) releases to share!

Let’s start with the most recent. On Friday (Nov. 24th), Materia collective released, Future Dance Land: An Electronic Tribute to Diddy Kong Racing. Myself, along with others,  arranged the main themes, boss themes, and all five world themes in an electronic fashion to celebrate the game’s 20th anniversary. I did the Ancient Lake theme with Isaac Vail and Erik Peabody (Viking Guitar).

You can listen to it here on Bandcamp and Spotify:



Next, I’d like to share a few releases from my video game cover band, WARK! First, we did a cover (Tail of the Ratship) from Battletoads & Double Dragon for Dwelling of Duels Europe Month.  Second, we did two covers for the last two Danse Macabre albums produced by Viking Guitar and Sindravania. We did a cover of the Resident Evil 2 Save Room theme last year for Danse Macabre V, and this year we did a medley from the Commodore 64 game, Forbidden Forest for Danse Macabre VI.

These were both really fun, especially the Forbidden Forest medley. I’ve always wanted to cover more music from that generation. You can listen to these tracks here:

Before I go, I’d like to share that I’m also going to be releasing a short album soon of original songs. They’re somewhat reminiscent of PS1 era RPG music. Inspired a lot by the Kings Field series. Should be out before the end of the year.

Thanks for listening!
