Check out these jams from some of the best video games in history

Firaga Records, an Electronic Dance record, has just released the first entry in their new artist-centric series: VGM Essentials. The album, celebrating artist Ben Briggs who has nearly two decades of experience remixing video game music, features twelve tracks from games like Chrono Trigger, Zelda: Wind Waker, Super Mario Galaxy and more.

A full-time musician and DJ, Twitch Streamer, founder of Tiny Waves and audio director for The Completionist, Ben Briggs is a video game remixing legend. VGM Essentials: Ben Briggs brings together a collaborative album featuring the musical stylings of other well-known artists VGR, arthur x medic, RoboRob, Boldie, Vector U and many more.

“VGM Essentials: Ben Briggs is the culmination of nearly two decades of my own personal experience remixing video game music and producing EDM, and over a decade of friendship with the people in this industry,” says Briggs. “Every song represented is extremely near and dear to my heart and my childhood, as well as the hearts and childhoods of my collaborators.

Ben and his friends have covered a variety of nostalgic video game songs for this celebratory album. From Chrono Trigger to Sonic Colors and Diddy Kong Racing, each song represents how games from our past live on and are endlessly magical. Ben Briggs says, “I wanted to capture the feeling of playing these retro games for the first time; when our imagination filled in all the banks between the pixels and polygons, and picking up a controller was our ticket to new worlds…”

From the bottom of my old, tired, smiling heart… thank you ♥” – Ben Briggs
