GameChops, a record label that produces game music remixes, sent Pure Nintendo a preview of their most recent album ‘Year of the Yoshi’.  The record label has been growing in popularity with every album that is released and for good reason.  Their recent release, Remix Default, which was based on the music from the wildly popular RPG Bravely Default was very well done.  The Year of the Yoshi is by far one of my personal favorites so far.  The tracks are well done remixes but also contain a fair dose of our favorite little green dinosaur, Yoshi.YotY-cover2youtube

Year of the Yoshi is a collaboration between several artists including DJ CUTMAN, Kevin Villecco, Ben Briggs, Grimecraft, Kubbi, RobKTA, ABSRDST, ectogemia, James Landino, and Mega Ran.  The collection of tracks, which are listed below, contain samples from several games featuring Yoshi including Yoshi (NES), Yoshi’s Island (SNES), Yoshi Story (N64), Yoshi Falls (Mario Kart DS), Yoshi Star Galaxy (Super Mario Galaxy 2 Wii), and Yoshi Touch and Go (DS).
