ESTHER'S DREAMS! Mellow VGM ReMixes & lullabies for gamers of ALL ages!!

FAIRFAX, VA... djpretzel is the founder of OverClocked ReMix. His first daughter, Esther Fiona Lloyd, was born on December 19th, 2013. To celebrate, artists from the community came together for an album of lighter VGM arrangements, centering on themes of playtime, downtime & sleepytime. The end result is Esther's Dreams -- OverClocked ReMix's 59th arrangement album -- a free tribute to video game music that babies, infants, toddlers, kids, adults, parents, grandparents, and young & old alike can enjoy. Except for teens.

...Okay, teens too. Esther's Dreams features nearly two hours of music, including arrangements of The Legend of Zelda, Chrono Trigger, Super Mario 64 & more. We hope you enjoy it, and we especially hope that new parents get their little ones to sleep & play while introducing them to some of the best music there is - video game music!

Esther's Dreams is available for free download at http://esther.ocremix.org. This album was produced to help promote video game music, the cuteness of babies, and the wonders of parenthood. Esther's Dreams was made by big fans, for lil' fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by any of the publishers or developers of the original games; all original compositions are copyright their respective owners.

"The response to the call for tracks was tremendous, everyone was super-enthusiastic, and we received enough varied tracks to create three separate discs: Playtime, Downtime, and Sleepytime, with a mini-bonus disc of Sillytime," album co-director Kristina "Chimpazilla" Scheps explained. "We've got music for every baby mood!"

33 artists arranged video game themes as mellow music and lullabies suitable for your favorite young gamers and gamers-to-be, with 28 total games represented including:

  • Animal Crossing
  • Bravely Default
  • Chrono Trigger
  • DuckTales
  • Final Fantasy series
  • Gradius series
  • .hack//Infection
  • ilomilo
  • Kingdom Hearts
  • The Legend of Zelda series
  • Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
  • Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
  • Pokémon X & Y
  • Secret of Mana
  • The Secret of Monkey Island
  • Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
  • Super Mario series
  • To the Moon
  • Yoshi Touch & Go; and
  • Zone of the Enders.

"Thank you especially to the artists for their inspired work, baby photos (!), and for sharing pieces of themselves in their music," album co-director Larry "Liontamer" Oji said in praise of the contributors. "They've not only come together to do something cool for lil' Esther, her mom Anna, and proud papa Dave as OCR's founder; they've also come together to create music infused with the energy of youth, innocence, love, and family. From our VGM-loving family to yours, enjoy!"
