WHAT?

World 1-2 is a self-titled music album (LP) directed by Mohammed Taher, and with a massive list of top-class video games composers. The LP will feature a unique blend of both original creations and nostalgia-infused remixes. 8-bit Spelunky? Dubstep Final Fantasy Tactics? Fully-orchestrated Captain Tsubasa 2? Yes, yes, and yes. And that’s not all.

WHO?

We’re working hand-in-hand with a monumental spectrum of talented artists, ranging from superstars to rising ones. I’m proud to officially unveil the list: Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), Austin Wintory (Journey), Keiji Yamagishi (Ninja Gaiden), Manami Matsumae (Mega Man), Module (Shatter), Eirik Suhrke (Spelunky), Chipzel (Super Hexagon), Andi Bissig (Mirage), Stemage (of Metroid Metal), Danimal Cannon (of Metroid Metal), halc (of OverClocked ReMix), Video Game Orchestra, ZefAgent WhiskersABSRDSTBenjamin Briggs, and more.
