OCR01996 - Dark Cloud 2 'Before Everything Happened'

Recommended Posts

loving the bass, and I like the idea of introing with something kinda instrumentally tangential to the main piece..plus the piano fits later on too.

there are a few motifs stuck in my head...excellent.

cool track!

I dig the piano a lot, and I like how it goes off into original territory later. You even got the inspired reverb builds. very slick...

I was actually noticed by deadmau5 recently with a track I did for the upcoming super dodgeball remix project, he said it was worth signing to mau5trap! :o

Ah, a blast from the past... For the game itself. This track is new to me, of course, and it gets me up out of my chair and dancing.

Thanks for answering that request and remixing a track from one of the few games that I've really played a lot. This actually made my day. ;-)

I'm proud to say that I had a hand in this ReMix turning out as awesome as it is....saw it in the WIP forums around the same time that I was working on my Kirby's Block Ball remix and I thought it was awesome (and needed to some tweeking). Expect to see more of this dude's music, this is just the beginning....

Great track Mike!

I'm always up for some tasteful 4-on-the-floor, and this mix certainly delivers. It's got a solid groove, but the silky-smooth production is what really makes this track memorable. Killer work man :-)

Really classy stuff, it has a great pulse and some really clean sounds. I really enjoy this one for working, it keeps everything steady and isn't too over the top. Nice work, and I'm excited to hear more from you! :D

haha you even got the cowbell in there, very nice. never thought i'd see a deadmau5 style track on here, though i guess there's more variation here than in 10 deadmau5 tunes. personally i thought it got a bit muddy during some of the denser sections, but other than that i really enjoyed it.

Nicely done. Its slower than the mixes I usually like, but here I think the tempo totally befits the piece and gives it the push that gets you moving to the beat. Had to listen to the source material again - it's been a while since I played. Thanks for taking up this requested piece!

Dark Cloud 2 (or Dark Chronicle) is one of the most underrated games in recent history. And that this is the only remix available is really disappointing, as that game had some phenomenal music (there's even an arranged album done by the industry's finest). The song itself is a bit too techno for my tastes, but it does remind me of David Wise, which is definitely a good thing. Great job! Hopefully, this will be the seed that sprouts more DC2 love.:)

Though I had both games, I enjoyed the first more than the second, but the gameplay made me feel like I was waaay too old for it - everything from the aesthetic to the enemies just screamed "6 yrs and under". Still, I remember liking the music fr. the 1st one (the second's score was much less memorable, imo) - La Saia's Resting Place still has a regular spot on my playlist. This track is very good, too.

This is a debut?! Sounds like you've been at it for years! Excellent mix. I'm not familiar with the source, but I'm sure you do it justice, Flexstyle.

I love this remix. Great work! Everything from the intro piano to the pumping beat is of solid quality. I mean, all the elements are great, transitions, synths, bass. You didn't compromise one bit of the style - this sounds exactly like something I would hear at a club.

Your dnb effort was also solid (Zelda), but more house please!!!

Hm, I think I'd liked to have heard a little more of the melody from the high point near the end of the song, but this is lovely stuff! Very chill.
