Oh No Chops Up Old N64 Games In The Latest Episode Of 'Rhythm Roulette'

Oh No brought the gamer out of us all in the latest installment of Mass Appeal's Rhythm Roulette. The Blessed Coast sonic sculptor stepped out from the show's standard three random record scheme and took the grey cartridges of our childhood to his chopping block, crafting himself a nice little ditty out of early DSP bones.   The cause for celebration?  Oh No and Alchemist producing the score for Rockstar Video Game’s GTAV.  Although it was picked at random, the source material should catch the fancy of millennial minds who've long dreamt of the musical madness that could ensue if the right hardware were ever in our possession.

In steps Doctor No (longtime gamer and archiver of 8-bit sounds) with all the tools and toys one could ever hope for, all nestled into place in a cluttered, smoked-out basement where all the magic happens. Wasting no time, your boy runs through a game of each pick-up and quickly gets to work borrowing intros and transition tracks from dorm-room favorite WCW/nWo Revenge and Nascar '99, eventually tailoring them for his own rugged and raw treatment to bump for your nightly gaming pleasure. Also, it should be noted that all of this is done while dispelling the unproductive stoner profile. So twirl your own, pick up the sticks and watch Oh No put something together out of some old games on Rhythm Roulette below.
