“I’ve always loved the fluid and soulful nature of the music from Kingdom Hearts. My main focus when diving into this project was to capture nostalgia while subverting expectations. Electronic dance music has so many sub-genres. With the help of several talented vocalists and producers, we tackled multiple styles while adding a personal degree of grit and attitude to these classic songs that I think fans of the game’s original score and electronic music fans alike will enjoy.” producer RoboRob.
