Article: Futebol Arte: World Cup Tribute EP
Ohayoooo, I'm Ivan Hakštok and I'm the one behind directing this miserable little pile of ReMixes. Or maybe an awesome little pile of ReMixes? I'll let the listeners decide.
I don't remember exactly when I first had the idea for this album, but I need to thank DarkeSword who kept insisting I direct it (which was probably just a ploy for him to get some Mega Man Soccer remixes, oh, sneaky you). As a big fan of football / soccer / fussball / futebol / nogomet / whatever-you-call-it, I thought it would be nice to pay a musical tribute to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Football / soccer games are a bit underrepresented as far as remixing is concerned, even though they have lots of really good soundtracks, and I hope this album will help remedy that a bit.
This album features seven tracks and seven artists, maybe not enough to fit a football team of eleven players, but enough to rock. I'll also add that I had no idea that the titles of the songs would make it so easy for me to put them in an order which describes a road to the top of the world: from playing around in the park to achieving a legendary status. I hope you enjoy it!
