The second entry of our new artist-centric series: VGM Essentials, comes from up-and-coming UK-based music producer, SARE. “VGM Essentials: SARE'' shows the producer remixing an array of games from classics such as Super Mario 64, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, to newer games such as No Straight Roads, Genshin Impact, and DELTARUNE. Featuring artists on this album include Slyleaf, RoboRob, arthur x medic, and RoBKTA.
“The important thing that I've learned throughout the production of this whole album was to have fun and to trust the process. This was a huge turning point for me to venture out into trying new things. My music is inspired by the games I've played, and I wanted to express that by adding my own spin.. Adding elements like orchestral strings, rock guitars, anything I could find to put in there etc., - this album was a chance for me to experiment. My collaborators certainly helped me to achieve this; they gave their all to every track on this album, and I am proud of how it turned out." - SARE
