Remixed music loopage for the week

Hey there.

This is a list of music I’ve downloaded that has been vying for attention on my repeat button on my media player. 🙂

Well, this list is basically all from OC ReMix, this week. Some of these songs were submitted and approved over a month ago, but I’ve been a bit off on my video game music downloading and listening. 😦 *puts up giant flame shield*

Ok! On to my string of useless words, which I’d like to call “reviews”, that completely do not do justice to the remixes they are next to.

Final Fantasy VI: ‘Vision of Celes’ by Gorgonian

* An orchestral mix by Gorgonian of Celes from Final Fantasy VI (one of my most favorite games of all time). So – Orchestral + Final Fantasy VI + Gorgonian = For The Win.

Phantasy Star Online: ‘Ragol Weather’ by zircon

* Oh wow. This is an awesome to the ‘ness fusion piece here. I’ve been developing a love for the sound of fusion lately, and this song only reinforces it. Definitely check it out. On one hand, this song reminds me of the map theme of Grandia III in a strange way. On the other hand, I really hope zircon works with this genre some more. 🙂

Final Fantasy IX: ‘The Rose General’ by katethegreat19

* A. gorgeous. vocal. masterpiece. Wow. This is a vocal remix of Rose of May (Loss of Me) from Final Fantasy IX. Beautiful vocals. Gorgeous song. Final Fantasy. Download now. 🙂

Final Fantasy VII: ‘The Shinra Shuffle’ by The Runaway Five

* Oh. Em. Gee. Love jazz? This is live, kick axe stuff right here. Absolutely amazing! Definitely download this, and check out the band’s website!

Little Nemo: The Dream Master: ‘Sunshine Through My Window’ by metaphist

* I remember playing this wonderful gem of a game when I was a little kid. Now that I’m a bigger kid, I don’t play my (half-not-working) NES, but I still have fond memories of Little Nemo, so it’s great to see this game get remixing love like this very sweet mix from metaphist. This mix is definitely one to go to sleep by, and I mean that in a good way.

Neverwinter Nights: ‘Kara-Turian Nights’ by Ceracryst

* Asian-style orchestra meets Neverwinter Nights. I admit, I haven’t played this game much at all, but I fully appreciate this beautiful mix. Definitely a download and keep, even if you haven’t played the game itself.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past: ‘Sacred Flute’ by Blue.Nocturne

* Remember the flute boy you meet initially in the Light World in Link to the Past? The song he plays lasts but seconds. Blue.Nocturne’s mix greatly expands upon that very limited material that’s available and does a spectacular job on creating  a full-fledged mix out of it.

Chrono Trigger: ‘Corridor of Time (Time Warp Mix)’ by The Vagrance

* Corridor of Time (the theme of the Kingdom of Zeal in Chrono Trigger) has received a lot of remix love, so it’s always a treat to see a different rendition of a heavily remixed tune. This mix fades the main theme into the background while expanding upon it with a breakbeat-ish (I think) piece in the forefront. Corridor of Time’s one of my favorite Chrono Trigger songs, so even if there’s 5,000+ remixes, that’s 5,000 mixes to enjoy, plus one more – this one. Awesome mix.

Anyway, that’s some of the music I’m into. I’m always willing to talk about favorite songs or what have you. Hit me up via e-mail if you want to chat about your favorite songs, remixes, or complain about the “things” I call reviews. 🙂
