World 1-2 is an album that features renowned game composers alongside the remixers that pay them tribute. It features original music by grammy-nominated Austin Wintory (Journey), Manami Matsumae (MegaMan), and celebrated remixers Stemage and Danimal Cannon (Metroid Metal), among many more.

World 1-2 is a music project directed by Mohammed Taher, founder of Brave Wave (formerly Koopa Soundworks). A fan of video games and their music, Mohammed saw two separate communities of musicians: composers that work for game companies, and independent remixers. Inspired by both groups, Mohammed directed a project that would unite them.

Part original composition, part remix, World 1-2 is a twenty track album that pays tribute to the remarkable history of Video Game Music.
