You may recall a previous post
that about Chris “Mazedude” Getman
‘s astonishing bonus EPÂ Star-Spangled Chips
Â last year. You may also recall that Mazedude’s EP was only
available to those who who pre-ordered his upcoming album which honors two discs worth
of timeless American composers and arrangements from popular titles such as Bioshock
, Dante’s Inferno
, Super Meat Boy
, Civilization IV
, and much more.
Although American Pixels is not slated to come out until later this year,Â Mazedude has just released the more-than-outstanding Star Spangled Chips EP on his Bandcamp page. This is probably a winning choice for those who want to preview Mr. Getman’s incredibly enterprising talents as both a musician and composer. We cannot stress enough how stoked we are for the future Mazedude release — preview Star Spangled Chips here if you dare.
Here at ThaSauce, we aim to advocate great releases that are often overlooked for the sake of promotional commercialism that continues to viciously saturate most video game news sites. That being said, we couldnâ€™t stop ourselves from talking about Mazedudeâ€™s upcoming release thatâ€™s going to be downright ridiculous. If you donâ€™t know who Mazedude is, chances are that you probably live under a rock. With over fifty outstanding remixes, Chris â€œMazedudeâ€ Getman stands as one of the most popular composers on OverClocked ReMix. His 2005 debut album, American Dreams, has garnered attention from well-established talents such as Jeremy Soule, Jack Wall, Peter McConnell, and Doom lead designer John Romero. Breaking out of his seven-year hiatus, Mazedudeâ€™s newest follow-up American Pixels is definitely going to wreck 2012.
In honor of his long-awaited follow up, Mazedude has just released an amazing pre-order bonus EP entitled Star Spangled Chips that underlines his progressive talent as both a composer and remixer; like his last album, this EP exclusively covers American arrangements from Myst IV: Revelation, Medal of Honor, Bioshock, and Grim Fandango. While this album has been slated for a 2012 release, you should pre-order your copy of American Pixels to get your hands on pure win.
