Mario's flavor of Chip Wave music takes me back to my childhood on one hand, and takes me on a whole new adventure on the other. Mario has this strange ability to cram a ton of content and excitement into a 16-bit sound that really helps you remember and appreciate 8-bit graphics. The different flavors he adds to his music are always fun, there's a little bit of an Asian tone, a little bit of a pirate adventure, dramatic passages that build tension. I vividly remember Nintendo and if Mario had written the music for most of my games, I may have played them more. Mario takes the chip wave genre to a whole new stratosphere and I'm always looking forward to his next release. Synthetic Empathy has proven to be one of my favorites and manages to find its way into most of my personal playlists.
Only the Host delivers his songs message with conviction, wrapped beautifully in a timelessly catchy and signature blend of grunge, rock and alternative rock tones. The lyrics to each song have a depth to them that is not often found in modern music. Each one his songs delivers a message, as opposed to empty words that rhyme. He's a true artist. If you're looking for a place in his catalog to start, my personal favorite is "The Desert's Song." I love the melody and connect with the lyrics, which I find to be deeply affirming. When I first heard this song, I was not in a good place, and something about it helped me find my center and refocus. I find the same to be true about much of his catalog. So if you're looking for a place to start listening, you have my recommendation, but don't stop there. There's a lot of good medicine to explore.
