While there are many different types of Zelda musical renditions, (orchestral, acapella, synthesizer) my favorites as of late are the electronic remixes. Youtube remixer nOkbient released two different Zelda mixes this past week, pulling songs and sounds from throughout the series and skillfully mashing them together into these electronic beauties. The first focuses primarily on manipulating the Song of Storms and does so charmingly, the second is composed around the Dungeon Theme from the original Legend of Zelda. These remixes were tastefully done, there’s a great variety to the pieces and they never get overly noisy. Listen to nOkbient’s jam-worthy compositions after the jump!
Not only a remixer, nOkbient also occasionally does Let’s Play videos and level analysis. The majority of his videos are, however, music remixes and have covered tunes from Yoshi’s Island and Banjo Kazooie. He uses FL Studio 11, among other plug-ins, to produce his music, and he is open to collaborations with other artists. Check out nOkbient’s Soundcloud, OC Remix, and Facebook accounts.
What do you think of these two Zelda remixes? Did you like them as much as I did? Do you think they’re Radio Hyrule worthy? Let us know in the comments!
