Sumthing Else Music Works, the blokes who bring you any and every video game soundtrack you could ever want, today revealed that Banjoe-Kazooie Nuts and Bolts, and Madworld, are the latest additions to the online store.
Retailing for $9.99 both in the Sumthing Digital Music Store and on iTunes, the Banjo-Kazooie compilation is just as you remembered it in its happy-go-lucky awesomeness from Rare Ltd. on your Xbox 360 and features compositions from Robin Beanland (Killer Instinct, Conker’s Bad Fur Day), Grant Kirkhope (Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie) and David Clynick (Perfect Dark, Perfect Dark Zero).
On the other hand, the Madworld soundtrack (also available in the aofresaid locations) is an explicit beast of a track assemblance, as anyone who played the game will rightly know. The soundtrack features the same 20 original hip-hop cuts found in the game from such artists as OX, Doujah Raze, Sick-YG, Bandy Leggz, Wordsmith, S.O.U.L. Purpose, and Optimus.
“There are a total of 20 tracks on the MADWORLD soundtrack and they are all original songs that we produced especially for the game,” said composer and soundtrack producer Naoto Tanaka. “I would make the backing tracks (or the beats) and then we would hand them off to these talented artists to get their performances. It was a pretty big challenge, especially as it was my first time with this kind of collaboration, but I think luck was on my side and it turned out to be extremely successful.”
Well, there you have it. If you’re into game tunes, especially these two, for $9.99 you pretty much can’t go wrong.
