Zelda & Chill III

Mikel’s third installment in the Zelda & Chill series is again brimming with fantastic lofi renditions from the soundtracks of The Legend of Zelda series. “Link’s Awakening” is a standout for me.

The legend continues in Zelda & Chill III. Mikel returns with a third installment in the beloved lofi series, and fourteen brand-new beats from the Legend of Zelda universe.

With the release of Zelda & Chill in 2018, Mikel and GameChops broke new ground. The album was met with overwhelmingly positive reactions and paved the path for many more videogame music and lofi crossovers to come. Mikel released a follow-up, Zelda & Chill II, in 2020 — and it was once again a hit. Now, he returns in Zelda & Chill III: a fourteen-track album filled with classics and deep cuts alike from the Legend of Zelda series.

Mikel is a music producer and engineer based in Germany. His sound is characterized by organic grooves and instrumentation, and a minimalist lofi vibe. While the Zelda & Chill series stands as his most popular work, he is also the creator of Poke & Chill, and frequently collaborates with his brother, Jokabi (known for the Chilltendo series).

Zelda & Chill III includes tunes from the Game Boy hand-held Link’s Awakening, the Nintendo 64-era Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, Twilight Princess for GameCube and Wii, and the 2010s’ A Link Between Worlds for 3DS and Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch. Composers heard on the album include Koji Kondo, Manaka Kataoka, Yasuaki Iwata, and Toru Minegishi.
