This page contains video-game music remixes (covers) that we arranged and recorded at home, focusing on live-played electric guitars and rock sounds.

Musicians are :
- Maxime Noël (bass)
- Laurent Roucairol (guitar, bass, arrangements, production)
- Olivier Tamagna (guitar, basse, arrangements, production)
- Jean-Christian Verdez (keyboards, arrangements, production)

This project started in 2003, wich makes Grospixels one of the oldest team on the video game remix scene. On the oldest songs the production is quite weak due to the quality of the home-studio equipment available at that time. But on recent songs, it gets better and better.

Files are in the mp3 format, and gathered in CD-length compilations. We also provide two different CD-cover per compilation, also made by Grospixels team members. Most recent remixes are located in the upper part of the page. Gromixes are uploaded in mp3, 128kbps, 192kbps or 320kbps.

All those remixes are free, please tell your friends about them. This project started in 2003, wich makes Grospixels one of the oldest team on the video game remix scene.

Gromix Collection #05
The songs in this collection have been recorded by Laurent as a solo project, playing bass, guitars, and producing. Not the whole team. Everything's been done at a fast pace, in less than six month, early 2015. These are guitar-only arrangements. The sounds and mixing or mastering parameters are the same on every song to make the album more cohesive.
Total time : 52'19"
Tracks : 13

Arranged & Performed :
Laurent Roucairol

Production :
December 2014 to April 2015

Gromix Collection #04
The team now uses a wide-spread home studio setup. Songs were produced over a very long period, they are better mixed and the mastering allows a louder volume. Apart from the drums, everything is played live, including bass guitar on some songs since Wild_Cat joined in.
Total time : 68'09"
Tracks : 16

Arranged & Performed :
Laurent Roucairol
Olivier Tamagna
Jean-Christian Verdez
Maxime Noël

Production :
January 2006 to April 2013

This is the last compilation made with the original home studio setup, wich is pushed to its limits. It's also more of a collaborative work between members of the team.
Total time : 76'52"
Tracks : 24

Arranged & Performed :
Laurent Roucairol
Olivier Tamagna
Jean-Christian Verdez

Bonus :
cover v1 (pixel art, by JC)
