X360: The Perfect Match – Soundtrack by AnotherSoundscape

The Perfect Match – 400MSPoints – with original soundtrack by Another Soundscape!
Soundtrack avaliable for FREE!

Yup, I scored another game soundtrack and I’m quite proud of this one!
The second Community Game I scored (the first being the best-selling Artoon)
is a gameshow/dating simulator called The Perfect Match. If I
understand it correctly (and I’m pretty sure I do) you take the role of
the host of this “game show” and try to find the contestants perfect
match. You can check it out at the page and pretty soon also the developer’s website If you feel like you want to try it out, there is a demo avaliable on Xbox Live Marketplace that you can download both directly from your 360 and via your computer.

I always try my best to release the soundtrack for free and managed to do so with this game too. It can be downloaded for free
as a .zip file with 320kbps MP3s from my webspace (thanks escariot!)
until it’s uploaded at Onion Factory’s official site, I will then
update the url. See it as a gift for the VGM-community!All tracks were made entirely in Reason 4 and set out to portray the
games visual style and gameshow-concept. It’s bouncy, cute and quite
catchy if I may say so myself. If you like it, feel free to share it
with anyone or perhaps (where applicable) make a remix? I’d love to
hear what you come up with!

Raves and reviews: – The Perfect Match, which I thought was a highly polished product that looked and sounded better than some XBLA games

So the bottom line here is: if you’re interested, feel free to download
the soundtrack and give the game a try. It would mean a lot to me and
might turn out to be quite an enjoyable experience for you too ;P interviews women from OCReMix

From GM4A:

Recently the people over at
took the time to interview three of the female musicians of the OCReMix
world. The article talks to three amazing and talented musicians,
including Jillian Goldin, Nicole Adams, and Elaine Li of Florida based
group Select Start. They cover topics including women in gaming, women in music, the
validity of game music and where VGM is heading in the future.
They all
provide interesting and thoughtful answers on the questions and it
makes for a really in depth read for those who want to learn more about
these amazing and talented people. You can read the article through this link. Then be sure to check out their music on, Jillian Goldin at her official site, Elaine Li and her group can also be found at, and Nicole Adams on her myspace page at

Interestingly enough OverClocked ReMix’s very first female ReMixer, injury, wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the article despite working on a for of the Nicole Adams songs mentioned. Still, it’s a good read. Check it out.

Hey! Listen! volume 1 mixtape from Game Music 4 All

From GM4A:

I am very happy to announce volume 1 in a series of 5 song “mixtapes” from GM4A. The series is called Hey! Listen!
and asks you to do just that! The goal of these mixtapes is to
introduce you to bands, musicians, and artists who you may have never
discovered otherwise. These are amazing folks who deserve recognition
and I hope to help them out with that the best I can from this humble
corner of the internet. Each volume will include five bands as well as
an up and coming artist providing the cover art. Our first collection
includes songs from seal of quality, Chiptots, Lumine Hall, Alex
Atchley, and Tanuki Suit Riot, and the amazing cover is brought to us
by Sasha Palacio.

The woman on the cover is named Haiku, Sasha gives this story about her
Story: Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, Haiku is a High School senior,
gamer, anime fan, and artist. Her Father is a wealthy art collector and
once famous Artist himself before his stroke. Her Mother is a beautiful
Poet and had named Haiku after the beautiful Japanese form of poetry.
Haiku’s name held beauty, strength, and deep meaning. Haiku does have a
