"Fangamer's Kickstarter aimed to deliver the ultimate  EarthBound fan's dream package - a guidebook for the game, a documentary about the effects of  EarthBound in the United States, a fan zine, lots of collectible knick-knacks, and our album," reflects producer and The Bad Dudes founder Mustin. "Backer Emile Rosales challenged me by requesting two pieces of short, ambient music from  EarthBound to arrange: 'Crossing Space and Time' and 'The Place.' I drew from my experience playing the game and applying my senses of both wonder and terror as you learn the true nature of this cave and what it means for your party: that the estranged father of one of your team mates will have to turn you kids into robots in order to send you back in time to save the world. I made new sounds and used new tools I've never used before - there are even cow sounds peppered into the track for bizarre effects. It is the work I am most proud of to date."

About the Bad Dudes

In September of 2006, Mustin assembled the best of the best bedroom producers who had worked on previous Mustin Enterprises (formerly OneUp Studios) releases to form the "A-Team" of videogame remixers, dubbed Bad Dudes. "Not a re-creation of the Bad Dudes video game soundtrack," according to Mustin, "but a reminder that we're all Bad Dudes and we've gotta put it down."

To date, the Dudes have released several free EPs, and in 2009 received critical acclaim for their first official album,  CHRONOTORIOUS, a collection of arrangements from the SNES classic Chrono Trigger. They have since released the  Metroid Arrange 25th Anniversary Album of Metroid music, making Psychokinetic their third CD release.
