Amamelia Drops Pokémon Remix On BFC's 'Visual Boy Advanced VIP'

Amamelia Drops Pokémon Remix On BFC's 'Visual Boy Advanced VIP'

Annabel Kean / Thursday 12th November, 2020 12:40PM

Drawing from the deep well of remix-ready GameBoy themes, Ōtautahi's highly prolific Big Fresh Collective share a restrained compilation of just six jazzed up chiptune tracks. Visual Boy Advanced VIP features staple BFC beat wranglers from Australia, the UK and Aotearoa, drawing samples from Pokémon, Super Mario, Wave Race and more GameBoy Advance tunes that'll give you nostalgia whiplash. On EP closer 'Viridian Forest Is Dark And Scary' Tāmaki's own Amamelia, the solo project of Amelia Berry (Fimo, Babyteeth), scrambles and tangles the haunting theme from Pokémon's Viridian Forest (from 2004 versions FireRed and LeafGreen). Hearing pulse raising, breakbeat takes on GameBoy themes of yore is an experience you never knew you needed, but these will spark some deeply buried familiar feelings of anticipation and joy. Catch Amamelia live in concert tomorrow night with P.H.F., Power Nap and Memory Foam, and take a quick trip back a couple decades with Visual Boy Advanced VIP...
