Classic Nintendo music as dub reggae instrumentals, “Dubtendo”, a project of mix engineer Matt Weiss (Akon) and multi-instrumentalist Joe Lowery.

After contributing to Mega Ran’s Black Materia: The Remake, Matt teamed up with Dj Cutman to play an instrumental album of his own. Matt joined Joe to create a dub reggae instrumental album of their favorite classic video game tracks.

You’ll hear dub and reggae spins on Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong Country, Castlevania IV, Metroid, Final Fantasy, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mega Man, and Adventures of Lolo. Including works from composers Koji Kondo, David Wise, Nobuo Uematsu and more, “Dubtendo” packs classic game nostalgia with a reggae twist.

Catch all the poke-vibes in “Broiled Magikarp”, a fresh spin on the main theme from Pokemon Red/Blue. Embark on an adventure in “Melodica of Time”, The Legend of Zelda’s overworld theme soaked in the summer sun – 

Dubtendo’s second single is “Melodica of Time“, the iconic melody from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time reimagined as a Bob Marley backing track.
