The latest Video Game LoFi album celebrates Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest.
Curaga Records has just released the newest album in their LoFi Collection, Video Game LoFi: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest. The album features ten diverse tracks, each showcasing Michael Staple’s musical prowess from chill and ethereal Lo-Fi hip-hop to heavy-hitting Lo-Fi trap. The album truly is a love letter to the original game soundtrack by David Wise.
Video Game LoFi: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest transports players right back to the 1995 SNES era with songs that include heavy Lo-Fi Trap hitter “K.Rool Returns,” the ever funny “Klomp’s Romp,” and the ethereal “Stickerbush Symphony”; the latter which released last month on streaming platforms.
“David Wise is one of the best composers in the gaming industry,” says artist Michael Staple, “I wanted to honor him by mostly staying faithful to his compositions for DKC2 while giving it the lofi / chill vibes infused with other genres, which I think people will enjoy. There’s something for everyone on this album.”
Video Game LoFI: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest is available right now on Amazon Music, Bandcamp, Spotify, Deezer, and Apple Music. You can also pick up the CD or cassette over at the Materia store right now with vinyl on the way summer of next year.
This is the latest lo-fi album from Curaga Records. They previously released Video Game LoFi: Pokémon, Video Game Lofi: Kingdom Hearts, Video Game Lofi: Super Mario 64, and Video Game LoFi: Nier Automata.
