Black Screen Records has teamed up with VA-11 HALL-A composer Michael ”Garoad“ Kelly once again to release his experimental ”vaporwave-meets-horror” soundtrack to Baroque Decay’s indie game Yuppie Psycho on limited edition vinyl this spring. This vinyl release includes 24 songs from the soundtrack hand-picked by Garoad himself. All songs got remastered for vinyl by Christian Bethge at RAMA Tonstudio and will be pressed at Optimal Media in Germany.
The first pressing will be available on limited edition 180g clear w/ green and red splatter double vinyl and comes in a beautiful gatefold sleeve with original artwork by Minty that is inspired by 80’s mall aesthetic. The album also features vocals by Adriana Figueroa on the opening track ”Voice (Prelude)“. All pre-orders come with a free Bandcamp code that enables you to download the full soundtrack in your favourite format and an exclusive Yuppie Psycho logo pin with rainbow plating and a beautiful backing card designed by Dane Baudoin.
“The soundtrack to Yuppie Psycho was a very fun and experimental body of work I’m honored to share with you on vinyl. With my previous work for VA-11 HALL-A, I wanted to create something memorable through catchy melodies, hooks, and for it to have a vibrant, feel-good energy inspired by anime of the 80s and 90s. For Yuppie Psycho, I wanted to create something memorable through atmosphere and careful use of sounds that would slowly escalate a lingering sense of dread and then explode into chaos when the panic-inducing moments happen. What made this even more interesting was blending that in with the calmer songs that play during normal moments and making sure that they also had a subtle, underlying sense that something’s not right for the player. I was inspired by classic horror soundtracks (Halloween, Friday the 13th, Carrie, etc) as well as Akira Yamaoka’s work for Silent Hill and used those inspirations as the base for the soundtrack. From there, I worked to add ingredients of “elevator music”, jazz, city pop, and just a dash of cyberpunk before stirring them together in the witch’s cauldron. I hope you will enjoy the soundtrack to this very special game!"
