Besso0 states that he has always loved the music in the Pokémon games, “I could not have teamed up with anyone better than Save Point for this album,” Besso0 states. “We’ve had tons of fun remixing these familiar tracks. So much love and tears have gone into every single track, I’ve never made anything like this. We tried to keep it semi-familiar by combining well known melodies and reworking the chord progressions to really spin the music our way. The best example of this is ‘Pokémon Center’, that song is the most ‘out there’ one in my opinion.”

I’ve had an amazing time working with Besso0 on this album,” states artist Save Point, “taking our favorite nostalgic Pokémon melodies and arranging in our own unique way. I especially love “Bicycle Theme” for its lush and floaty aesthetic.”
