After releasing highly acclaimed cartridge music albums for the Sega Genesis, SNES, PC Engine and Gameboy, the german musician Remute is now once again coming up with a true novelty:
'R64' is the first ever music album released as a Nintendo 64 cartridge!
It is Remute's most diverse and playful album so far and contains 15 brandnew songs ranging from ultra-catchy electro pop reminiscent of Yello, Kraftwerk or Yellow Magic Orchestra to sinister techno and house excursions beaming you right back to foggy 90s warehouse raves.
A worthy step forward into the shiny 64-bit world!
No tricks - this is not an embedded MP3-player, terribly compressed WAV-files on a microSD-card or other cheating: as with all previous Remute cartridge albums the sound on this cartridge gets generated and played back in realtime and it's all happening within meager 8 Megabytes! With 'R64' the Nintendo 64 console is your very own synthesizer and happy to serve you every time you turn it on and press play! 93,75 MHz, baby!
For this wizardry Remute cooperated with genius Nintendo 64 dev Rasky, who is not only responsible for the sound engine and player-GUI, but also managed to put together an amazingly trippy 3D-experience accompanying Remute's music - you will...uhmmm... fly.
The cartridges are region-free and will fit and play flawlessly on all models of the Nintendo 64 console - no matter if NTSC-U, PAL or NTSC-J.
Included is also a bandcamp download code so you can download the music on your computer as well.
