about

Mario knows that Wario has no chill, so the red-wearing plumber hits his evil counterpart hard with the comfy vibes that only Reggae can provide. With the enlisted help of groove titan Stevie Wonder, will Wario stand a chance…?

Super Mario Bros. 3 was actually only the second true Mario game for which Koji Kondo composed music, and stylistically it covers a lot of bases given that he may not have fully solidified the quintessential Mario sound yet. This soundtrack and especially the Ground Theme seems to be heavily influenced by Reggae--the use of one drop is a dead giveaway. Mario gameplay is very bouncy and relaxing, so Reggae is a smart stylistic choice to mirror that. Merging with Master Blaster was very easily done due to the similar grooves and feel between the two tracks, but the contrast between Stevie Wonder’s minor tonality and Kondo’s major tonality makes for a nice ear-catch.
