Nintendo Life Interview Smooth McGroove

A portion of Nintendo Life's interview with Smooth McGroove:

That made every note count, so some truly amazing music came out of that era. I think it works in a similar way to my acapella arrangements. Because I'm limited to my voice, I have to make some interesting decisions when it comes to singing or doing a percussion part. It keeps the process interesting."

He's truly talented. I loved his version of Aquatic Ambience from Donkey Kong Country, one of my favorite songs in any game.

Did you listen to his arrangement of One Who Bares Fangs At God from Xenogears?. It is one of his most impressive arrangments.
