Wow, this has a really cool beat! And it's a good ReMix to just jam to. Those strings were interesting and I do hear some Nujabes around it. To me, it sounds as though it's not completely chill, but it's also not overly upbeat. It's somewhere right in the middle with it's energy, which is something I find that Radiowar excels at with his music and I love it. All in all, another great groove-like electronica piece and another A+ for Radiowar.

Given that the original was some element of oriental minimalism, I can see how it would work in a mix of a similar style, albeit with more precise sounding oriental instruments.

It's a tricky one to work with arrangement wise as well, given how there seems to be so little to work with, but what he managed to do was pick apart the rhythm parts and used them as groove foundations for a more expansive electric work complete with chord substitutions to give it that lift. I do indeed sense some Linkin Park influences in there given some of the synth and piano work; does make me think a lot of their methods taken through Meteora and some of the more electric works handled in Hybrid Theory. It's a well-produced effort as well; though it didn't quite excite me as much as the arrangement did, there's definitely been some care and detail made to make the whole setting work.

I think we've got a track that may split an audience due to exactly how far you can arrange such a minimalist source, but I quite dig this :)

Pretty intro, and I was pleasantly surprised with the transition into a hip hop style beat. The lead entering at 1:11 was very engaging, same with the transition around 1:53. The beat stopping around 2:34 and the shimmering synth coming in sounded great. Good stuff

I tend to have a few remixes that I start my listening with, the one song to start hours+ I'll play OC tunes on. This song has taken the role as of last week.
I had never heard the source but after listening and falling for this mix, I went in search of it. It's impressive how much you've added to the tune while not straying from the source or tone at all. I get such a lost, searching feeling to this mix and I love the reoccurring string rift. I've never played the game, but this mix does a great job of making me think it might be worth a look.
It takes one to rock, but two to rock out.

I like this approach to the source, it has a distant feel to it - the title sort of accentuates this further, getting the listener to think about what else is out there. There's some ethereal quality to it, although I feel the beat sort of detracts from that aspect - perhaps it was intentional with a different idea in mind.

Solid track regardless though!

Oh, damn! That intro hooked me! Awesome etnic downbeat ambient jam with some kickin' beats and OMG dat bass at 1:46. I dig this a lot. The atmosphere is slick combination of tension and sadness. I can listen to this all day, sweeeet!
