Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, trainers and monsters alike... After four plus years in development, I'm proud to announce the release of Pokémon: The Missingno Tracks!!
As always, please help us seed the torrent & spread the word!! I'm gonna preface this entire mixflood by saying that I have never played a Pokémon game in my life and am not too familiar with the music, either, so if I embarrass myself with incorrect Pokémon terminology or general poké-lameness, please forgive me. What I DO know, having listened to Missingno, is that these games have some great tunes, a lot of artists are clearly passionate about the games' music, and they've done an amazing job with a consistently awesome setlist that's full of rock, jazz, chiptune, electronica, and... Jiggly Choir. So while I'm 110% sure most PokéFans will recognize & appreciate the album on a nostalgic level, even if you're like me and were "never really into" the whole craze, I think you're STILL gonna dig this album. Congrats to Project Director Gerry "The Damned" Wheatley, who writes:
"More than a decade ago, a small company called GAME FREAK released a role-playing game called Pokémon for the Nintendo Game Boy. In the years since, Pokémon has gone on to sell over 200 million copies and continues to be one of the most successful video game series of all time. Fans around the world have spent countless hours training and battling their favorite monsters, and now we are on the threshold of a new adventure with Pokémon Black and White.
The Missingno Tracks contains 28 remixes of music featured throughout the handheld series. Fans of the games will hear familiar tunes remade into pulse-pounding techno, piano concertos, rock ballads and chiptunes, and much more. Each track was created to delight the ears of Pokémon fans and music-enthusiasts alike. We, the contributing musicians and OC ReMix, present to you this musical journey through the world of Pokémon."
Awesome. I'm glad this album is finally seeing the light of day, because as we've presented panels at Otakon, PAX, Katsucon, MAGFest, San Japan, and elsewhere, this is the album we got the most questions about regarding release date; a lot of people have been looking forward to this for a long time, and while we've had some great individual ReMixes of Pokémon posted over the years, with this album the series' music and composers finally get the full attention they deserve. This collab between Blake, Will, and Drew is unique in being the only submission *I'm* aware of where the artist comments were provided as limericks:
"There was a remixer called Blake
Who said: “In a collab I’ll partake!”
It wasn’t long,
Before Willrock made the song,
And Blake and halc took a break."
"What originally started as three
Ended up near the end with just me
Because halc and proto
Got lost outside Johto
And left me with credits you see"
"arises a proposition to me
to join a collab of three
i made a few bloops
and sliced a few loops
and made my escape you see"
I'm gonna have to declare WillRock the informal winner of this limerick slam, but none y'all should quit your day jobs... at least when it comes to poetry ;) When it comes to music, that's a totally different story - great intro quote, fantastic blend of rock & chiptune, with guitar, synths, acoustic drums, a jazzy break with some ivory action, and just a generally energetic, dynamic, anthemic vibe. As both a great example of a successful collab AND an upbeat, slick production with wonderful arrangement, it seemed like a great way to kick things off. Congratulations to The Damned, ProtoDome, WillRock, halc, and all artists who contributed to Pokémon: The Missingno Tracks; there's MUCH more where this came from!
