Dj CUTMAN Video Game DJ Set @ RETURN OF THE DEATH BEAR

8 02 2010

Moving Box audio engineer Chris Davidson AKA Dj CUTMAN performed his first DJ set @ RETURN OF THE DEATH BEAR last week. After discovering the pimp-awesome music site SoundCloud, Chris posted his set online for anyone to listen to it (this means you!) He mixes familiar game tunes  and covers with high quality arrangement and production. This isn’t an 8-bit orgy of square waves, all these tracks are all well-produced pieces of music. Chris says:

“I’m bringing something new to the table, only the best in video game remixes and chip-tune music. Remixes of classic game tunes have been being produced for a long time, but only a few tracks shine in the sea of mediocre renditions of super compositions. I’ve been collecting game music for over ten years, and with DJ Cutman I hope to showcase the best of the best of this awesome music
