I thought I was done sharing Zelda music for the rest of the year. Then someone on NeoGAF posts this thing called Flyrule, and I'm pulled back into the cycle.

Beatsmith Shag took a few tracks from Ocarina of Time, switched up the tempo and rhythm, added a drum beat, and sampled some choice in-game sound effects, and the result is a very mellow, trip hop interpretation of the N64 classic. The remixes are technically basic, but Shag hit the sweet spot -- not too simple, not overproduced. It's the kind of music you play in the background when you just want to chill with the boys on a Sunday afternoon, and I totally dig it.

I've embedded "Twinrova Theme," my favorite song from the album, after the jump. Check it out, then give the rest of the album a listen. Just don't play the bonus track if you have any sharp implements in your immediate vicinity. You'll see what I mean.
