Hey, cool, a Titanfall ReMix! GIANT ROBOTS!! Awesome to see newer games/soundtracks gettin' some love, and DusK knocks it out of the park with this short-but-aggressive rock/metal jam:
"Even after the hype train has died, I'm still gushing over this fantastic game. I had a lot of fun making this. Remixing modern VGM is always a challenge for me, because after so much remixing of 16-bit soundtracks, I've always felt the need to ensure that the production values of my remixes are higher than the source tunes - an impossibility for professionally-produced soundtracks such as Titanfall. But every now and then, I'll take up the gauntlet, to see what the outcome will be.
The source is already kinda guitar-driven, so it was largely a matter of really turning that up to 11. I still wanted to preserve the cinematic feel of the source, so I opened up with some strings, and livened up the mix with some staccato strings and French horns. I really made the melody my own toward the end as well. Enjoy."
At 2'44" this still feels complete & substantial, due in part to a relatively brisk tempo but also because Dustin takes his time with the intro, building up to the power shreds at 0'26". Palpable sums things up nicely:
"I'd never heard the Titanfall OST before, so judging this song led to a nice find. Dustin's take on "Welcome to the Marauder Corps" is straightforward but well-executed. He turns an orchestral song with a few rock elements into a rock song with a few orchestral elements. Most of the original melodies and parts can be found, just switched around to different instruments. The backbone of Dustin's song is a heavy guitar riff that is adapted from the bassline of the original, while the synth/string melody is handled by lead guitar. It's a change that works extremely well, almost as if the original composer had had the rock adaptation in mind. The synthy intro and accompanying strings took this arrangement beyond a standard rock song and were both welcome touches, but my favorite section was 1:30, where guitar and strings take turns with the lead. Not a particularly ambitious arrangement or instrumentation, but Dustin makes up for it by delivering something solidly assembled and very enjoyable."
While not a HUGE change from the original, the parts & emphasis have been switched around and made considerably more br00tl in the process. Titanfall was certainly the flavor-of-the-moment for awhile, but I like that it still has diehard fans, as too many games come and go too quickly these days. Dustin's cooked up a great tribute that captures a lot of the energy & immediacy of the in-game experience - check it out!
