Iconic album covers morphed into Gameboys is a thing I didn’t know I needed. I started modding my own Gameboys a few months ago and I’m really enjoying it. Established modders like gamechangermods inspired me to take the plunge and he has a mini project of his own. Introducing GBS x LPS. As described by the man himself: Direct from bed-stuy Brooklyn…by popular demand…announcing out…

To celebrate 100,000 YouTube subscribers, Cookin Soul made a beat from the iconic SNES game. Spanish hip hop producer/DJ Cookin Soul has followed in the footsteps of many producers and made a beat from a video game. But not just any video game.

The pair chose to speak on political unrest and injustice on their latest track OutRun The Sun, with production courtesy…

Potholes’ Javis FauX has some fun with a Super Mario sample on KAIZO, the title track from his upcoming project. A new genre has been invented, it wasn’t intentional and it doesn’t end in -core (although a related genre does bear the sufferable suffix) and we have Javis FauX to thank.
