Anti-Syne! Glad to see you made a return :D

Now this is certainly different than your house-driven takes on FF8 earlier this year; I can see the accidental nature with the fusion between original chords and the familiar Chemical Plant riff, and somehow it managed to work well in establishing the track's nature. Sure, there's still some house influences like the FF8 tracks, though I'd say it leans more towards the American definition of house rather than the French influences of the previous 2 subs. I'd see the little percussion breakdown at around 1:47 being a strong highlight in regards to building up the mood as well, one that really managed to provide some strong feeling of life to the track.

Generally a clean production work has occurred as well, though is that you doing the "get ready" samples there? It's a good way to go, though I am not too sure about the flimsy recording space there. Either way it doesn't detract too much from the track; in general it's got the setting that really upped your game since previous subs.

So all in all, way to go Jack! And keep representing us British, will ya :)

Wait a minute... I saw this as a new posting today and I think it's already a ringtone for my phone! I may have downloaded an older version of this song at some point... either way, Chemical Plant Zone is one of the best Sonic tracks, period, and any remix that can capture its magic gets a thumbs up from me! :D

I'm digging this. This source can never get old. I like the glitchy break house beat going on here. Great stuff!

Super nice! I love his take on this theme. I'm a big fan of his past work as well. Keep doing what you do, Anti-Syne!

Pretty slick. The "Get Ready" clip starting off the upbeat portion was a great touch, and the fact that it was used again later was cool. Thankfully you didn't try to over do it on the voice clips. The blippy glitch part of the track was fantastic and fun to listen to. A pretty good break house ReMix that really makes electronica shine.

It rocks my pants off!! Been listening to it on repeat all day at work. Not that I take my pants off at work. *shifty eyes*

Solid arrangement here - production is a little rough here though. The synths seem a little dry sounding. The beats could use some more fatness with lower frequencies I feel. Otherwise, this is a pretty enjoyable track to listen to.

haha, the name may not have been intended to reflect the glitchy blip part, but it suits it perfectly. When the song kicked off at 0:40, I knew it was going to be good.

No one's picked up on where 'Get Ready" is from?

I'm very disappointed

Who picked up the Kefka laugh in here?

i did. i thought i dreamt the first time but no..it's there.

nice stuff with this mix anti-syne. i usually enjoy heavy electronica for chemical plant but the lighter tone is enjoyable here.

Sweet stuff here. Loved 1:26, and the glitchiness around 1:50. Really smooth track, good transitions and energy. I really enjoyed it
