August 9th, 2022 - Game composer and accomplished remixer bLiNd has put together an album celebrating the classic action role playing game Secret of Mana. “Video Game LoFi: Secret of Mana” features twelve tracks masterfully blended to reflect the vibrant yet melancholic atmosphere of Hiroki Kikuta’s original soundscape.

 

Secret of Mana holds a near and dear place in my heart,” says artist bLiNd. “When I first heard the music to the game I had just gotten out of surgery on my left ankle. My dad rented me Secret of Mana and I was a little doped up on the meds and anesthesia. Since I was in a dream state the music stood out the most to me and I have always wanted to cover my favorite tracks in some way.

 

“Video Game LoFI: Secret of Mana” holds many surprises on each track. Uplifting guitars, angelic vocals, warm bass and crunchy lofi drums are only some of the sounds to uncover. Listeners will be immersed in the game’s high fantasy world and may just find themselves transported there much like bLiNd himself.


Lofi Hip Hop seemed to be the most viable genre to cover the selection of tracks and my goal was to stay somewhat close to the original so as not to lose their feel and embellish the rest with swinging beats and basslines. I am proud of this one.”
 

Tracklist: 


1. Angel's Love (Fear of the Heavens from "Secret of Mana")

2. Tell a Strange Tale (from "Secret of Mana")

3. Into the Thick of It (from "Secret of Mana") 

4. Holy Intruder (from "Secret of Mana") 

5. A Wish… (from "Secret of Mana") 

6. Eternal Recurrence (from "Secret of Mana") 

7. Eight Ringing Bells (from "Secret of Mana") 

8. Star of Darkness (from "Secret of Mana") 

9. Whisper and Mantra (from "Secret of Mana")

10. Pure Night (from "Secret of Mana")

12. Close Your Eyelids (from "Secret of Mana")
