Squarepusher constructs alien synths for Nintendo’s new NES system
Squarepusher has constructed some imaginative synth sounds for Nintendo’s latest classic console spawn—the Super NT—created by Analogue. The Seattle based video game hardware company known as Analogue is dubbing the console as “a reimagining of perhaps the greatest video game system of all time,” and their new boot-up tune summons nostalgic memories of playing Super Nintendo in moldy childhood basements. Squarepusher is certainly an apt producer for the contract, masterfully reinventing the quintessential Nintendo bleeps and 8-bit-esque sounds. The fabled IDM producer released a live album earlier this year called Elektrac and also soundtracks another revised Super Nintendo game called Super Turrican.
