'Take flight' with OC ReMix's new Pilotwings album

After the explosion of industrial manliness that was Mega Man X: Maverick Rising, it would stand to reason that the musicians of the OverClocked ReMix collective would be pretty damn tired. Time to enjoy some much-needed R&R, am I right, fellas? Yeah, well, Drew "halc" Wheeler is a beast and wasn't about to go on some bullsh*t vacation!

With the help of Benjamin Briggs, halc produced Take Flight, a short, seven-track album that honors the Pilotwings series. Combining modern electronica and nostalgia-tickling chiptunes, the album takes you on a journey through the SNES, N64, and 3DS installments of the franchise -- speaking of which, the track "Depth Perception" is the first 3DS arrangement on OC ReMix! Congrats, guys!

As fluffy and airy as the games that inspired it, Take Flight should help you over the mid-week slump.
