Capcom dims the lights for Monster Hunter Disco Remix album

Capcom's Suleputer record label commemorated the 10th anniversary of the Monster Hunter game franchise with a disco cover album, arranged by Chris Whatley, Sebastian Schwartz and Dominique Chagnon.

An exercise in experimentation and contrast, the dramatic themes of the open-world action and exploration game are reinterpreted in the style of a 1970's urban nightlife setting on Monster Hunter Disco Remix. Western artists utilize their familiarity with American and European popular music to weigh in with surprising reinterpretations of the series' established orchestral compositions by Japanese composers Masato Kouda and Yuko Komiyama.

Underscoring the thematic levity of the compilation, the album concludes with the humorously titled "Monster Hunter Disco Hyper Mix Medley." Excerpts from each track are streaming on SoundCloud, courtesy of the publisher.

Capcom's Monster Hunter Disco Remix digital album is available for streaming online on the Apple Music platform.
