OverClocked Records and jazz fusion band Materia are thrilled to present New Game+, a soulful musical journey paying tribute to some of gaming’s most beloved soundtracks. Featuring 23 musicians across 10 tracks, in a team of 27 total people, New Game+ represents a massive achievement, bringing together jazz musicians from around the globe to perform and record an album in the oft forgotten jazz fusion tradition, including an epic 11+-minute arrangement from Chrono Trigger.
All 27 members of the team met through MAGFest, a four day-long festival dedicated to the appreciation of video game music, gaming of all types, and the gaming community. Their album is as much of a tribute to MAGFest and the people responsible for it, as it is to the friends they’ve gained through its creation.
I appear as a guest drummer on “Dash (From Final Fantasy 13-2)” and lend additional drum programming/production to “Funkadelus (From Jazz Jackrabbit).”
