Nmesh- Welcome To Warp Zone! An enormous nostalgic musical mix of retro gaming awesome

The latest Nmesh album/mix release, Welcome To Warp Zone!, has been released via popular underground music publication Tiny Mix Tapes on Bandcamp. It's a mammoth 4½-hour nostalgia-obsessed DJ mix of retro video game, PC music, chock full of classic OST's, commercials, PSA's and SFX with a psychedelic touch.
Nmesh - Welcome To Warp Zone!
The mix is divided into 10 themed worlds. The majority of the mix tinkers on the edge of comedy. For example the inclusion of the classic G.I.Joe dubs, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out music layered overtop the infamous Tyson-Holyfield fight, and bonus narration from Duke Nukem and Caleb from the Blood PC game. But builds up to a rather dark ending where the listener eventually destroys the guest villain.

Nmesh - Welcome To Warp Zone! This should be a nice holiday treat to the retro gaming / electronic community, as well as 30-somethings everywhere, who still have cherished memories of unwrapping Nintendo games under the Christmas tree.
