Electronic Lifestyle - Audio Music Album for PCEngine/TurboGrafx-16 by Remute

PLEASE NOTE: Product only comes with pictured case if you select the case option.

The first plug and play techno cartridge album for the PCEngine / TurboGrafx-16.

After his two highly acclaimed albums Technoptimistic and The Cult Of Remute which were released as Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo game cartridges, German techno musician Remute presents the next novelty:

His new album Electronic Lifestyle comes exclusively for the PC-Engine game console (called Turbografx-16 in the USA) on a forgotten, but cute and cool format - the HuCard. It is the first music album release for the console ever and the first commercial HuCard release since many years.

NEC's 8bit spaceship is not only Kanye West's favorite game console (he even considered to call an album 'TurboGrafx-16' back in 2016), but still has a strong cult following amongst gamers even today due to its excellent library of high quality games.

The music on this album gets generated in realtime and pushes the 8bit soundchip of the PC-Engine to the max and probably even further as commercial games back in the days couldn't use the 1 Megabyte of the HuCard for sound only. Electronic Lifestyle consists of a catchy 15 track long mixture of bleepy, retro-futuristic electro melodies a la Kraftwerk, Yellow Magic Orchestra or Jean-Michel Jarre and crunchy hypnotic excursions heavily inspired by early 90s Detroit techno. Furthermore the album features crisp graphics and a rock-solid shiny player GUI by demoscene pixel-masters and coding-wizards Alien and MooZ. The HuCards are custom-made by Swedish PCB-expert MrTentacle and run on any model of the console.

    Overall excellent electronic music album with an authentically nostalgic GUI. I was originally shipped the PCE version, but SAG exchanged it for the TG16 version without any issues. My one criticism is of the physical media itself, which should have some indication of version. As it stands, the TG16 and PCE versions are visually identical in every way. I hope for future releases they'll include some small label variation so they can be told apart.

    Remute: PC Engine

    Everything that I hoped that it would be. I love the packaging. The music are true classics— they take good advantage of the PC Engine/ TurboGrafx sound engine. Also, it’s nice to see this gaming hardware receive some love. Nice addition to my growing collection.
