FZ Sides F & Z

Detail from an illustration by staff at Superbrothers HQ created for a pair of FEZ remix records called FZ, excerpted and linked below.

Q2 2013

In the spring of 2012, the videogame FEZ by Polytron Corporation launched alongside the accompanying record FEZ: Official Soundtrack by composer Disasterpeace. One year later in the spring of 2013 the videogame FEZ launched again, this time for the computer, alongside two remix records FZ: Side F and FZ: Side Z.

The first remix record includes a remix from Jim Guthrie, the second remix record begins with a remix from Scntfc, both have been embedded below in this post so you might hear themJim Guthrie and Scntfc have a history with Superbrothers and the Sword & Sworcery music/videogame project. The artwork above and below have been created by Superbrothers staff as a tribute to FEZ and to accompany these two remix songs.

There are several connections between the Toronto-founded Superbrothers and the Montreal-headquartered Polytron Corporations, and it might be observed that there are some stylistic sympathies that exist between Sword & Sworcery and FEZ, as well as a few instances of overlapping iconography (eg. owls, mushrooms), some of which appears in the artwork above.

To listen to the remix records in their entirety or to purchase them you may find a link to Disasterpeace's record shop below this post, or from right here. link to disasterpeace
