"This album was a long time coming, and I'm so glad to have seen it come this far. This kinda started as a small 4 track EP of remixes from video games, but quickly turned into an album of these, with original tracks, partially because I kept starting new projects while working on this album, and I felt I couldn't neglect them lol. Thank you Enoch for putting that fire under my ass to actually do this album. Special thanks to Zach Dueñas, Mitomoro, et al for putting up with me."

A love letter to videogames and the online music scene in general, djUSA.GI brings a high-voltage energy to his hardcore remixes covering everything from Undertale to Vocaloid Pop to Pump it Up: Infinity, wrapping up with the bouncy Happy Hardcore anthem Life Behind The D-Pad.
Supporting the release are two remixes from hardcore extraordinaire Mitomoro, who has appeared on releases on Attack the Music and DYNASTY RECORDS, and chip-house maestro HEYSUEZO, known for his work with Galaxy Trail and GoodWarGames.
