A lot of my drums are just people picking up new ammo and weapons in games. — Burial
Mixmag goes underground with our friends Ikonika, Tokimonsta, and–well, maybe someday–Burial in a grand expose on video game music’s influence on the latest sounds.
Rustie is another artist who flipped perceptions of dance music on their head and ushered in a new generation of producers with his 2011 record ‘Glass Swords’ arriving stylistically similar to, and packed full of hyperactive noises from games such as Zelda.
Of course, Mmmmaven’s five-year mission is to support the unification of music and technology, and articles like this make every sense in the world.
Just take this quote from Make It New alum Ikonika: “My life feels more like a game than a movie. Music is the biggest game I’m playing.”
Much, much, MUCH more at Mixmag.
