about

"Fantastic Star-Friend" was a fun way for me to look back at a tiny, but influential, piece of my life: growing up with an OG Gameboy, and Kirby 1/2. In FSF, I imagined that its world existed as a fictitious classic video-game for a fictitious classic console: the 'Super Geraldo Station'

But as this project drifted around the back of my mind, the soundscape of FSF really started to come into its own.

"Phenomenal Star-Force" is an excited look forward, at the possibilities of this new world. And I'm excited to finally be able to share it with you all.

Once again, it's time for adventure!

Story:
It has been a year since the trio foiled the Dark Force's attempt to rule Earth. Dawn and Aero have gotten a number of adventures under their belts and have grown considerably. And yet time and time again, the newcomers find themselves being treated like side-kicks, as Lumin bears the brunt of whatever task at hand. What's it going to take to get Lumin to fully rely on his team?

about

Gerald Kaye (tekkaxe) Los Angeles, California

The first pages of my musical DNA in plain-text would probably read something like a 90s NintendoPower magazine. Though many game songs from that era stick with me (shatterhand, powerblade, silver surfer...) "Kirby's Dreamland" and "Mega Man" games had a particulaly huge musical impact on me as a kid. I craft memorable/melodic jams that I hope remain in your hearts, as the classics remain in mine ... more
