Today, after having a chance to listen to the album a few times, we bring you a song-by-song review of Grimecraft’s latest album, which features several other Gamechops artists as well.

 

1. POKÉBIKE

What a great way to start the album! We get a quick reference to a Queen song followed by some gangsta Pokemon trap! Catchy melody, easy to recognize remix, and very laid back.

2. POKÉHAT REMIX

This track makes it hard to come up with the right descriptive words. The only one we can think of is “epic”. James Landino‘s remix of track eight uses powerful chord progressions that take us on a journey which resolves in a wall-shattering minute of musical insanity that will make you want to turn the volume up to 11. Listen to this song without turning the volume up. We dare you!

3. DITTO ft. ABSRDST

How DID they make those sounds!? This track uses A beautiful mix of chords and arpeggios, blasted into your ears with brilliantly crafted synthesizer sounds. This track hits so hard, yet so smooth at the same time. Several Pikachu samples from the animated show do a great job of giving this song a slow n’ dirty trap vibe.

4. POKÉMOTION

This song takes us back and fourth between a world of low, bouncing bass sounds, and melodic, instrumental areas that feel like bright rays from the sun. Great contrast, great drops, smooth transitions.

 

5. POKÉMOTION REMIX ft. RobKTA and Emily Davitdon

Wow! This house track feels like a song that would be in a Wii U game. It’s brilliantly orchestrated, like a danceable symphony with a wide variety of instruments. One minute you’re hearing a series of piano chords, the next a chip tune synth solo, and whoa, where’d that Cello come from! The song, produced by Dj CUTMAN, features Emily Davidson, an accomplished Cello player and RobKTA, another GameChops artist known for his spectacular dance music.

6. #POKÉLUDE

Haha.. I’m laughing as I write this. Absolutely awesome and unexpected track. Kevin Villecco took a simple tune from the old red and blue gameboy games and added a flavor of trap music that reminds me of the harlem shake. “pik – pik – pik – PIKA!” (more Pikachu samples)

7. POKÉACE ft. Kevin Villecco

Using material from Red/Blue, Grimecraft and Kevin Villecco take an old song and amplify its energy tenfold! I can’t tell if there’s a real electric guitar being played in this track or if it’s MIDI, but it sounds so perfect next to those synths and kicks

8. POKÉHAT

This song could be trap, it could be dubstep, or perhaps a  modern genre known a trapstep. Whatever the genre, we’re going to tag it as AWESOME. Not only for the fact that it’s got the same climactic chords progressions as track two (the remix), but also because Grimecraft decided to let out some kirby love on the final song! You can clearly catch the sound of a warpstar taking off, which is then followed by some KIRBY TRAP!! LOLWHAT!? Yes, and it’s really quite great. A fun and fitting way to end the album.

 

All in all, you’re doing yourself an injustice if you don’t download this album. It’s some of the best EDM that we at J1 Studios have heard in a long time, and it also happens to be Pokemon remixes! Epic Win! Thank you for another awesome remix album Gamechops! You never let us down!

Play it at thanksgiving! Your little 3DS-toting cousins will freak out! Click HERE to download it for FREE. Or HERE. Or HERE.
