Label: Gamechops Take a break from slaying Bokoblins and solving dungeons this week with Zelda & Chill: A Tape by Mikel. Pressed on heavy weight black vinyl by Materia Collective in collaboration with GameChops, this lo-fi trek through the world of Hylia is the perfect time to pour a nice tall glass of Lon Lon Milk and relax with your memories of adventures a cartridge away. Lay back, drop that needle, let your table spin, and whisk away to a simpler time. You and your pal Link deserve a much needed rest -- trust me, Ganon can wait! Emerging from what seemed like nowhere, Mikel, a hip-hop producer based out of Germany, has brought the world of Zelda to its Epona-fashioned heels. As his first vinyl foray into the video game music scene, Mikel has set the tempo low and the bar high for his signature take on the iconic music from Koji Kondo and team! The way in which he preserves the original music that has been ingrained into our collective DNA is unique and stylistic in it’s own way, and is one of the reasons this album is so fun to listen to. While seemingly simplistic in nature, Mikel's work is genius in its execution.
