Notes

Chozo Legacy’s producer, bLiNd, has been making electronic music for nearly two decades. His original Super Metroid remix, Jade Catacombs, appeared on the game music website OverClocked Remix in 2008. To this day, it is considered the prime example of video game trance music. Chozo Legacy‘s single, Kindred, features award-winning singer Jillian Aversa, who has appeared on major game franchises including Halo, God of War, Soul Calibur, and Civilization.

Chozo Legacy is split into two parts. 6 licensed Super Metroid remixes available for purchase, and 4 free fan-arrangements on Bandcamp. Complete Chozo Legacy by downloading both releases, and assemble with the track order on this page. You can also stream the album in full via YouTube.

Musically, Chozo Legacy focuses on extended mixes of deep house, future, breaks, and trance. The steady rhythms and hypnotic grooves are reminiscent of classic house and techno, harkening back to the era the game was released. The album really shines when played in its entirety, progressing from track to track, as one might advance through the world of Super Metroid.

Chozo Legacy succeeds at what so many concept albums set out to do, creating a convincing narrative. Each track is themed around a different environment from the game, reflecting its atmosphere and soundscape. The tenth track, Aran, has a finality to it much like an ending credits sequence. Just as a classic game can be replayed countless times, Chozo Legacy is endlessly loopable, the end transitioning seamlessly into the beginning. The album clocks in at an epic 64 minutes.
