Mustin has an ability to capture juuuuust the right sound to make a track pop and nail the nostalgia.
His latest album, Mario Mixtape, resulted from a challenge issued by his son: to create a Mario remix album within a matter of months (about 4 months). Mustin delivered, with the assistance and approval of his son, his daughter, and their “people,” as he puts it.
Mustin also co-founded The OneUps about 20 years ago, the 2nd longest-running video game music remix band in the world. He’s got an album out called 20 of the favorite remixes he made for the band.
And he did the same with his favorite remixes for another collective he’s part of called Bad Dudes.
I loved chatting with Mustin – another one of those chats that flew by. Please buy and/or stream his music to help support this community we love!
