Teki Latex and Nick Dwyer celebrated Japanese classic video games via a mixtape

Teki Latex and Nick Dwyer's newly released mixtape takes every 80s and 90s gamer on a nostalgic journey.

Released today, Teki And Nick's Mixtape Quest Adventure infuses game music from various Japanese classics like Final Fantasy, Streets Of Rage, Pokémon, Sonic the Hedgehog, Chrono Trigger. It is described to be “a mixtape with a unique blend of golden era [of] video game soundtracks, hip-hop acapellas and bass heavy dance music”. The mixtape also features exclusive mixes from Mumdance, Kode9, Foodman and Ikonika, and vocals from Outkast, Timbaland, Jammz, Suiyooubi Campanella and more.

Producing this long list mixtape wasn't easy -- it's a “side-scrolling adventure, recorded as a live mix” process - where Nick hunted the best OSTs from his 200,000 video games soundtracks archive and Teki dug into his collection of acapellas and club tracks to use for the production. Watch the interview with Teki giving us the low down on his approach to production:

Parisian club king Teki Latex is a singer, rapper and producer, who is the founder of Parisian label Sound Pellegrino. He is also a part of French hip hop outfit TTC and electronic duo Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team together with Orgasmic. The talented pair originally got together after performing back to back for a live set at Diggin’ in the Carts at Red Bull Festival back in 2018, and that first encounter has fruitfully culminated with this standout mixtape.
