Sir_NutS hits us up with some pumpin' psy-trance Top Gear 2 action that actually originated way back in 2007:
"Around 2007 I proposed to make a small remix project to a few friends, the game was Top Gear 2, which has an awesome soundtrack and the project was meant to be electronica-only. I gathered around 5 remixers including myself to remix the 5 tracks from the OST. 2 of those remixers couldn't finish their tracks, I was making very slow progress on mine, and the other two were completed. They were bLiNd's "Dance Nation" and Rayza's "Rolling Start".
Back to 2013, I finally finished my track. I've always wanted to make a psychedelic trance remix for OCR, since there seems to be a lack of representation in that genre. But dealing with this remix made me see why, and it's the reason it took so long. Psy trance being a bassline-centric genre, where melody usage is almost non-existent, it was very hard to pull a remix that represented the original well while also sounding authentic. Not to mention trying to nail the acid sounds the genre is known for, and then mastering which was a royal pain in the ass. At times, I abandoned the track in anger for months, only to pick it up later, work on it a it, and get frustrated again.
In the last few months I managed to get the track to a point I'm satisfied with it, and I think it sounds authentic enough. I'm a huge fan of Infected Mushrooms and Juno Reactor, and in this track, it shows. Hope you enjoy it, and I hope we can (finally) have some psy trance on the site."
Awesome to finally come full circle and get a mix from the guy who started the mini-project that resulted in those two (excellent) arrangements from 2007 & 2009; the game has some great tunes, and this is yet another example of that. While zircon may beg to differ regarding no psy-trance on the site, it's a cool subgenre that I'm happy to see more of. Acidic, 303-style bass takes center stage, but before that we intro with some trippy, processed quotes and ambient, granular pads. It's fast, it flutters and modulates by in a 4'41" runtime that seems shorter (in a good way), and it's thus super-appropriate for racing/driving contexts. Nutritious sums things up neatly:
"I remember when I first discovered psytrance many a year ago listening to streams on Digitally Imported. I was instantly hooked. This mix is a great example of why persistence pays off. Production is solid, if not perhaps a bit bright. Nuts pulls of the genre very nicely with the synth choices and writing. Arrangement is creative without losing sight of the source tune.
It's too bad the project never came to fruition, but I'm glad that we are still enjoying some of the results nonetheless."
My thoughts exactly; great to see more music from Mr. Molina, great to finally be posting a mix in 2014 that was part of an effort that resulted in sibling mixes posted over six years ago, and great to see some more psytrance representation on OCR!
