About this album

The Concept

The concept for the American Album came about one night via a conversation between Mazedude and Mustin. They were discussing the lack of Mazedude mixes on various OneUp Studios albums, and were trying to figure out a way to remedy that. Mazedude suggested that he do a “Tribute to Robert Prince,” almost jokingly, based on the notion that he’s done so many Doom 2 remixes. But then the idea stuck. Mustin suggested, “why only tribute Robert Prince, when you could also tribute other American composers, like Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall? They’ve never had a tribute made for them either!” . … and the American Album was born, some night in the Spring of 2004.

After all, haven’t there been enough tributes made to the Japanese guys?

Considering Mazedude is in many ways the “All-American” mixer, it was only appropriate that he be the one to spearhead the album. So away he went - planning, listening, researching, and listening some more. It wasn’t too long after that he had the distinct pleasure of meeting Tallarico in person, among others - and wouldn’t ya know it - they loved the idea. They even started to request their personal favorites that they would like to see remixed. Now for Mazedude, having grown up with their music in the background of his life, this was very exciting.

An Online Album…?

Originally the plan was to make this an album via OneUp Studios, to be licensed and commercially released for sale. Mazedude would coordinate it, Mustin would take care of the legal stuff, and a handful of other remixers would sign on board to help Mazedude with the music. But then we hit a few snags.
