No Balls, No Glory
is an internet EP release by The Bad Dudes, a multinational group of
musicians that releases covers of video game music. This release
contains 16 remixed songs from Kazuo Sawa’s original score for the 1989
NES game, all arranged with each dodge ball team’s country of origin in
Project Producer Mustin said, “I’m excited about releasing this project in conjunction with Aksys games and their Brawlers release. I hope the music pays suitable tribute to the Super Dodge Ball video game we all played as kids.”
This is my tribute to the Donkey Kong Country series on the SNES, but
mainly to the man behind the great soundtrack, David Wise. He is one of
my favorite musicproducers and have been a huge inspiration to me.
All the tracks on the album are based on a sample from the soundtrack.
Then I have mashed these samples to either hip hop or RnB acapellas. On
top of this i have added alot of my own production like drumloops,
basslines, effects, samples and synths. I also have to thank
“Pinkoloss”, an amazingly talented friend of mine, for making the
fabulous cover art. I recommend you to visit his blog (adress is above).

If you’re in the eastern Pennsylvania area, there’s a good chance you’ve already heard of Blake Dannen
– or more precisely, you’ve probably heard his voice. A radio
personality in the Lehigh Valley area for over a decade, Blake
currently resides on 99.9FM “The Hawk”, a classic hits station (check
out his host page here
) at 2-7PM, as well as 93.3FM (WMMR) in Philadelphia.
I first met Blake (online, that is) via MySpace, where I saw he was
a fan of BT and The Crystal Method, two of my own favorite artists, as
well as a myriad of other bands from Led Zeppelin to The Clash. On his MySpace page
he has a blog with a monthly feature called “Music of the Month” where
he features and interviews musicians from a wide range of genres. I was
honored to hear that he wanted to have me as the featured artist for
So, the interview is now up: just click here
to get to Blake’s page, and then go to the blog. It’s pretty in-depth –
if you’re curious about how I ended up producing music and remixing, I
think you’ll find it interesting! You can also read entries for
previous months as well as lots of other great content. You’ll notice
“Mindbender” is his profile song, too… this guy is a class act So, definitely check out his page, tune into “The Hawk” if you’re in the area, and show your support for a great DJ!

Bahamut and I are running a DKC2 project over at OCR. It’s been going on in semi-secret for a few months, but now we’re opening it up to the public for auditions to cover any unclaimed tracks. You can get all the details on the OCR thread.
Hybound wrote over @ OCR:
I did this song for the
Promo CD [sgx]
‘s giving out with his physical album of Hero of the Grey
Area (which is great by the way). It started out as pretty much a
complete rip-off of Hybrid’s “We Are In Control” and then evolved from
there. Im going to actually include it on my first album that will
hopefully be coming out late next year.
I hope you enjoy it!
I’m gonna send you to my MySpace page, but you can download the 192 kbps original from there.
or, to download it…
Sam has release quite a few of these batches of chiptunes, and all of them so far have been amazing. This time the tunes are 16-bit, as oppossed to the usual 8-bit, meaning they’re something like what you’d hear on SNES as opposed to an NES.
