Ryan Hemsworth – “Proto”
Yasunori Mitsuda is an accomplished video game producer; he’s done soundtracks for the likes of Chrono Trigger, Shadow Hearts, and many other titles, as well as anime films and more. Lefse is compiling a tribute to Mitsuda called, what else, MITSUDA, and it features a brief piece of elegance from Ryan Hemsworth entitled “Proto.”
Hemsworth dropped a serious low-end over it, while letting some snappy drums ride over it and is saturated with a barely noticeable stuttering bassline, reminiscent of the scores heard in those incredible pixelated gems. It’ll have you digging around for your NES in nostalgia.
