Last week’s challenge was video game tunes, so of course I chose my favourite games – although in this case, it’s my favourite game soundtrack, I’ve never played Katamari Damacy or sequels!
Yes this is Senor Coconut remixing Katamari on the Funk it’s on the game soundtrack for Katamari Forever…and works perfectly with Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine.
I wanted to do a mashup with Katamari on the Rocks, this is my third attempt since the 00’s, but it’s just too busy. So hence Senor Cocounut’s more stripped back take on Shibuya-Kei (this in fact probably was my first musical experience of that genre back in the mid 00’s) worked better.
Merengue! Cha Cha Cha!
Fun fact: as an 80’s teen I was a MASSIVE Gloria Estefan err, fan. Had several of her – well Miami Sound Machine’s – 80’s albums including Anything For You that included ‘Rhythm…’.
Making her into the King (Queen?) of All The Cosmos is all kinds of funny though for the artwork….
