Continuing with the theme of nostalgic mixtaping, BTA are happy to deliver another one, this time in the theme of the world's most infamous and not to mention hilariously-mustached plumber. For me, Mario 2 is still far too overlooked in the mushroom kingdom's legacy. Dinosaur bosses spitting eggs, uprooting various bitter-tasting root vegetables, digging through sandy labyrinths in four simple directions, this game had it all. What better way to relive 1988's greatest achievement than to shimmy down memory lane to some hip-hop and electronic shit that surely draws inspiration from our beloved 8-bit days.
Cadence Weapon - "Oliver Square"
DJ BC - "Hot and Dumb" (included because of the line "Nickelback should've won a Grammy," 'nuff said)
Kavinsky - "Testarossa Overdrive (Sebastian Remix)"
Space Cowboy - "Running Away (MSTRKRFT Remix)"
Bag Raiders - "Punch Reprise"
The Whip - "Divebomb"
