OCR02150 - Return All Robots! 'Quicksilver'

Recommended Posts

One of my favorite RAR! remixes; I've always loved Radiowar's style, and was really hoping he'd participate in the contest. Something about his beats and synths reminds me of artists like Zero 7 and Massive Attack, two of my favorite downtempo electronica artists. They really suit the icy source tune perfectly, and if we ever do an expansion or sequel, I want this one *ingame* :)

This one actually makes me think of something like a desolate industrial wastleland, which is kind of cool considering the plot of the game itself. Pretty chill sound going on here, and lots of nice beats to keep things moving. Nice work.

Gorgeous epiano sample opens up this shifting and moody remix. Reminds me of some of Akira Yamaoka's work with Silent Hill 3 and 4, except much more outwardly relaxed. Production is very clean for the majority of the song. I'm loving the drums, and the layers of instruments work well. One thing I really dig is the deliberate degradation of some of the samples, reminiscent of Boards of Canada's work. There are a few spots where it feels like the samples border on fighting for frequencies but it doesn't get messy.

Great job, Radiowar.

Instantly reminded me of

Good stuff.

Edit: I also like how the ad on the detail page is permanently set to RAR!. :)

Oh, man, you can really get an icy atmospheric feel off of this one, especially in the intro. That beat is nice and solid, and the ambiance of this track is spectacular. It may be a bit more upbeat than a soundscape, but it's still chill enough to relax to and you can get a lot of peace out of this tune. Awesome work on this ReMix.

Wow, such sliiiick mix here. This is seriously deep freeze. I especially feel some coolness during the intro and other moments like intro. RW created awesome atmosphere here with that beat and piano and synths ang other stuff. So much chill.

A very sterile sound. The instrumentation reminds me of Boards of Canada, but whereas their music is like small respites or vaults in a strange incomprehensible world, this song is like someone polished that world into a finite mathematical shape and left it hanging in chilly stasis.
