Donkey Kong Country ‘remixed’ music album out now

By on April 6, 2011

The original Donkey Kong Country video game was developed by Rare, released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1994 and featured one of the finest video game soundtracks of all time. The Greatest Bits, a Dutch DJ/Producer, made a remix album of the soundtrack that is already available on various digital stores. For this album, he combined chiptune-style retrogame sounds with the best modern beats and instruments.

The musical styles vary from the funky beat treatment on the title theme to the dancefloor version of Fear Factory. From the chiptune ballad Aquatic Ambiance to the pounding drum ‘n bass beats on Mine Cart Madness. And from the eastern groove mix of the Cave Dweller Concert to the dark atmospheres of Northern Hemispheres.

The Donkey Kong Country music album has been digitally released on iTunes, Amazon MP3 and Donkey Kong Country is The Greatest Bits’ second album, after the critically acclaimed debut album Mega Man 2 (2010). So go get it if you Kong is one of your favourite characters!
