The album finally lifts the curtain on the enigmatic wizard famed for merging teched-out house, disco, electro, glitch, and hard bass grooves in a single track. According to Mord Fustang, 9999 in 1 is “kind of a concept album.” Growing up in the small Eastern European country of Estonia, Mord became a video game fanatic – today he claims “70% of my body is made of video games.” Still, the only games available during his childhood were “pirated Russian knockoffs of Nintendo cartridges that had five games and weird hacks like ‘Naked Super Mario Brothers.’ The title comes from the random numbers they always had on the plastic yellow cartridges. The album is a 8-bit homage to the nostalgia I have for those games.”
This is evident through tracks like the Street Fighter & Mortal Kombat inspired “Press Play,” which uses the ticking of the timer that ticks down before players press play in the game, and “Skyward World,” which is built around the sound of the cartridge being removed from the old Sega Genesis consoles.
Mord Fustang is set to release ‘9999 in 1’ on his own label Magic Trooper on January 20th, 2015.
