Young Thug meets The Legend of Zelda in new mix from Producer Dane

Hip hop takes on the Water Levels through Producer Dane.

We're all surely more than aware that some of video game's classic releases came along with timeless, equally classic soundtracks (such as this track from the soundtrack to 1994 SNES game Wolverine: Adamantium Rage, being called the world's first Grime beat). Now, thanks to Soundcloud talent Producer Dane, video game and rap fans can listen to the sounds of some of their favourite artists spliced together with timeless video game soundtracks, such as Nef the Pharaoh on the hugely popular Aquatic Ambience from 1994's Donkey Kong Country (how popular, you ask? enough for 300,000 views of this 10 hour loop of the track).

The true highlight of the mix, Stage 1: Submarine Edits, is reserved for the combination of Atlanta's Young Thug with the score to Zora's Domain level, from 1998's The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (indeed that original has its own 10 hour loop, much like the Donkey Kong Country slice). With many contemporary producers in hip hop speaking publicly on owing sound influences to the soundtracks of 1990s and 1980s video games, the combination of hip hop acts over water level soundtracks is extraordinarily gratifying.

Hear the mix in full below.
