…and yes, there is a vinyl option.
The album “Rayman by Rémi” has been underway for some time, but yesterday a site describing the album as well as showing off some mockups was revealed. Alongside that site was the information that a Kickstarter would be launched today.
The arrangement is done by Rémi Gazel who is also the original composer from the game. The arranged album is described as being a “Jazz/Rock/Symphonic/Electro” album.
For this album Rémi have teamed up with some labels who are very much familiar with game music – Black Screen Records and Data Airlines. Black Screen Records will be handling the vinyl release which will be a 2LP with one record on orange and one on blue vinyl. The vinyl tier is priced at €32 (with an early bird tier at €29).
If the €140,000 stretch goal is met a third 12″ record with electro remixes will be added to the release.
The campaign will run from today and until December 16, 2016. If the campaign meets the goal of €50,000 then backer rewards are expected to ship out April, 2017.

Some of you might’ve guessed it from our social media teasers or from the entertaining Twitter conversation between Black Screen Records and Chris Christodoulou last week. But in case you didn’t now the news are official – Black Screen Record will be releasing Chris Christodoulou’s soundtrack to the rogue-like indie platformer Risk of Rain.
The release will be on a 2LP with one disc on purple and one on gold colored vinyl housed in a gatefold jacket with liner notes from Chris Christodoulou. As an added bonus it comes with both the full digital soundtrack and the “Engineer Edition” of the soundtrack, which contains all the separate audio stems for all the main groups of instruments used in the soundtrack.
The release is priced at €24 and is open for preorders now via Black Screen Records’ webstore. The release is scheduled to go out late October 2016.

Black Screen Records teased this soundtrack a while back by posting a sound clip on social media of them playing the test pressing, but now the official announcement is out – Black Screen Records are releasing Joris de Man’s Velocity 2X soundtrack on vinyl.
The release will come on 2LP 180g vinyl with one disc on solid neon pink vinyl and the other on solid blue vinyl. The release also comes with an A2 poster with artwork from the game and an instant MP3 download of the digital soundtrack.
The release is scheduled to ship out on August 19, 2016, is priced at €24, and can be preordered from Black Screen Records’ store here.
But that’s not all – if you’re feeling adventurous you can also preorder a mystery bundle containing the Velocity 2X soundtrack + the next 3 soundtracks from Black Screen Records. This bundle is €80 and is slightly cheaper than buying the albums individually. On the downside they won’t ship out until November. The mystery bundle can be preordered here.
