FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GameChops Releases Club Kong, a Remix Tribute to Donkey Kong Country

Club Kong is six remixes that sound like an electronic jungle jazz club, with production by halc and Dj CUTMAN

Philadelphia, PA - February 10th 2014 - The video game remix record label GameChops has just released Club Kong, a 6-song remix album of Donkey Kong Country music . This year marks the 20th anniversary of Donkey Kong Country’s release. Receiving high praise from both gamers and critics, Donkey Kong Country became the second-best selling Super Nintendo game of all time. It spawned several popular sequels and was revived for the Wii in 2010 as Donkey Kong Country Returns.

The original Donkey Kong Country soundtrack, written by beloved video game composer David Wise, was released under the title DK Jamz. Described as atmospheric “jungle music”, the soundtrack features a wide range of musical styles blended with natural environmental sounds. Club Kong works popular melodies from the Donkey Kong Country series into a modern jazz fusion arrangement. Like stepping into electronic Donkey Kong jazz club, this artistic re-imagination will captivate gamers and electronic music fans alike.

Club Kong brings together a powerhouse team of talent from the video game music scene. The album is produced by Drew Wheeler, also known as Halc. Halc is best known for his work with OverClocked Remix, contributing to thirteen albums since 2007. He is also the founder of 9-bit Records, a label that combines 8-bit sounds and modern electronic production. Club Kong is Halc’s second album with GameChops. The album is introduced by popular youtube comedian Brentalfloss, and the album is mastered by video game remixer and founder of GameChops, Dj CUTMAN.

The album is timely given the upcoming release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, the fifth installment in the Donkey Kong Country series. Club Kong is sure to generate excitement for the upcoming game in old fans and newcomers to the series. Tropical Freeze will be available for WiiU in on February 21st.

The full track list is as follows:

1. Welcome to Club Kong (DK Island Swing) ft. brentalfloss

2. Swept Away (Aquatic Ambience)

3. Monkey and Machine (Fear Factory)

4. Da Mines (Mining Melancholy)

5. Forever Frozen (In a Snow-Bound Land)

6. Da Mines (Dj CUTMAN Remix)

Club Kong is now available for download on Loudr | http://www.loudr.fm/release/club-kong/w7TTP

will this be on overclocked records?

No plans for it at the moment, I know licensed VGM albums was something planned for the future but I don't think they are able to handle licensing yet? GameChops is handling the distribution which atm is exclusively through Loudr, iTunes and spotify I think..

As a PS, sorry I haven't responded to your interview for OCRecords yet. I have it about halfway done. I promise I will get back to you soon with a full response. :)

Awesome album Drew! This was very enjoyable, nice work. Swept Away and Da Mines were my favorites. I like this loudr distribution platform too, I paid a little more and got Club Needlemouse by RobKTA (which I didn't even know existed until right now!!) too :-D

This album is neat! :D All the tunes are extremely enjoyable and catchy, but is "Da Mines" that got a special place in my heart, and got it so nice and cozy that I actually ended up remixing that tune on my own :3

Recommended: gets RoBKTA's stamp of awesomeness :)!!

Hey, sorry, I missed this post originally! Did you ever get this to work?

http://www.loudr.fm/release/club-kong/w7TTP - clicking the Buy button should drop down an email address box and a payment method selection on the same page. Is it still re-directing you when you try to click the Buy button? If so let me know, I can hook you up with the album and let the Loudr guys know that you're experiencing a possible bug..

No problem, I did get it to work :). It does not work with Explorer, fyi. It kept redirecting me to the Loudr homepage.
