Only a week in and Dj CUTMAN has a Wii U remix album

That was fast!

Hardware mishaps aside, Nintendo is brilliant when it comes to presentation. There's no reason why the music from the friggin' OS menus and applications on Nintendo consoles should be so damn good, but they are. It's wonderful.

The Wii U brings along a new suite of soothing jams, and there's no better way to enjoy the Wii U when you aren't playing on the Wii U than with an mp3 player full of 'em. Dj CUTMAN has ripped some notable tracks and mixed them for your listening pleasure. Classy and free to download, Wii U Grooves would make a great soundtrack to any season of Bob Ross' The Joy of Painting.
