OverClocked Records proudly welcomes Southern California’s 8-bit Jazz Heroes to its label with the duo’s debut album Press Start. Featuring ten laid-back jazz renditions of several classic Nintendo themes arranged for guitar and upright bass, Adam Bellotto and Robby Delosier arrive at OC Records with the goal of giving good vibes and helping listeners unwind. Tackling several treasured themes from the Mario and Zelda franchises alongside Metroid and Tetris, Press Start is a smoothly-crafted set of nostalgic Nintendo instrumentals transported to a west coast jazz club setting. Press Start is licensed and available wherever digital music is sold

01. Plumber’s Jump (Theme from Super Mario Bros.)
02. Catch That Penguin (Slider Theme from Super Mario 64)
03. Another Water Level (Dire, Dire Docks from Super Mario 64)
04. Doki Doki Swing (Theme from Super Mario Bros. 2)
05. Bounty Hunter Bounce (Metroid Medley)
06. Falling Blocks (Type A from Tetris)
07. Halcyon Hyrule (Title Theme from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)
08. Windmill’s Waltz (Song of Storms from Zelda: Ocarina of Time)
09. Requiem in Forest Green (Lost Woods from Zelda: Ocarina of Time)
10. It’s Dangerous to Go Alone! (Theme from The Legend of Zelda)
“When you think of the legendary works of Koji Kondo and Hip Tanaka, they’re generally upbeat ditties, so it’s fun and unique to hear special themes like these slowed down and delivered with a more mellow, relaxed energy,” notes OC Records co-founder Larry Oji. “Upright bass in particular has a lovely sound that you don’t hear often enough in game music, so you’re going to enjoy everything the Heroes have brought to Press Start. We’re certainly looking forward to Adam and Robby’s future arrangements and can’t wait to hear what else they’ve got up their sleeves!”
Press Start’s ten pieces pull from fan-favorite Nintendo games including Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda, The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, Metroid, and the Game Boy staple Tetris.

This is awesome, as more video game music done in Jazz style is great. This is something Nintendo fans should keep an eye ( and an ear) on!
