Samus & Chill is the music of Metroid if it had a lofi hip hop soundtrack.

Samus & Chill is a tribute to the music of Metroid, Nintendo’s beloved sci fi video game series. Producer Tune in with Chewie transforms the dark, atmospheric Metroid soundtrack into laid back lofi hip hop, featuring soft piano chords, smooth vintage synths, and expressive guitar. Samus & Chill is a carefully crafted homage to the music of Metroid.

Samus & Chill marks Tune in with Chewie’s first release with video game record label GameChops. Exploring a wide array of tracks from the Metroid series, Chewie remixes tunes ranging all the way from the series’ debut on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986, through Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion, and the Metroid Prime trilogy.

Chewie, real name Nestor Estrada, is a guitarist and music producer native to Los Angeles, California. Producing and composing music for over a decade, he’s also the lead sound designer at Output, a software instrument company. Chewie produced Samus & Chill with Logic Pro using custom-built synthesizers, orchestral sound libraries, and vast textures created from his eurorack and guitar. While Chewie’s been a guitarist most of his life, his piano chops also shine through across the album.
