In 1992, you sit in front of your computer with a floppy disk in your hand and press the MS-DOS command line to begin ‘StateOfArt-spaceballs.exe,’ the disk’s noise begins to rumble, then there is complete silence…a black screen in which nothing happens.

You believe your buddy passed you a faulty disk, but then…you see scrolling text and hear a futuristic electro soundtrack with dazzling lights that leave you breathless. You can’t help listening; it’s an immediate infatuation….

This little tale was part of Yves Big City’s memory and they brought it back to life through this nostalgia for classic video game music. This sound pack was created in 2006, and it was Yves Big City’s first attempt to merge old school and contemporary samples.
