Title: Lo-Fi Beats For Remembering the SNES
Post by: Spooniest on December 10, 2020, 09:40:07 am
The SNES, some will say, was a high-water mark for home consoles.

... That is an opinion that people can have. However, even if one doesn't necessarily share this opinion, it certainly had nice music, and a lot of it quite soothing without ever coming off as janky or unpalatable (it has its stinkers too, but those still sound nicer than 43% of video games released at the time... mostly).

What is one of your favorite pieces of music to put on and chillax to the max all cool and all shooting some b ball outside of the school? SNES and Chill Mix, Super Famicom Disco System*, or heck, even anything from that era. The arranged OST for Street Fighter Alpha on the PSX/Saturn used to be my jam.

Some of the most lo-fi music to be found on the system.

Switched ON does some great remixes:

Bknapp does some of the best beat tapes too:

as for just soundtracks... Shaq Fu's SNES soundtrack is all bangers, no cap

You did ask for it :P

I haven't heard any game music remixers do that style/genre/aesthetic well, only indie bands. Guided by Voices, Arthur Russell, Pavement, My Bloody Valentine, Daniel Johnston, etc.

That Switched ON guy kinda has it right though except it's electronic. Sorta chillwave/dream pop-like

Here's a lofi game beats playlist I made on Spotify that has many SNES entries on the list, in addition to many songs from other consoles of the same era.
