OCR03040 - Xenophobe 'Audiophobe'

Recommended Posts

My brother bought me the NES version of Xenophone for my birthday last year. It ruined my birthday.

But that's okay, because this is an infectious ReMix of a song not even featured in those unhappy memories (look up the NES soundtrack to discover what I was stuck with). Good energy, constant beat, fun vibe of unstoppable alien attacks. And who doesn't love those?

This is a fun ReMix to listen to. Such a good beat and a great sound with those bits and chips swimming around the melody. Like a retro sound that I would expect to hear from a great indy game, which is cool. Nice work.

Really feels like you captured the 80's-style electro with a modern twist. It seems the mix can get a bit confused at times, especially around 1:30, but that could just be my ears playing tricks on me. Overall very energetic and enjoyable; great job!

This is definitely inspired by 80s electronic. The low chords seemed symbolic of creatures chasing after you from every corner. I almost wish this track was longer, but at the same time, I wouldn’t consider this track too short. Still very enjoyable.

This arrangement has the really nice pound of a old school hard-hitting electronica. Style-wise this is quite a nice upgrade of the original. The stuttery start-stop fills are quite enjoyable. They break up the relentless energy without losing it.

The bleepy lofi arp that comes in at 0:55 I’m not a fan of. It sounds purposefully off-key, and I think it works - even if I don’t really like it - when there is no other melody playing at the same time. It has a broken machinery feel to it. But when there is other melodic content playing at the same time, it gets in the way and makes the whole part messy, which unfortunately happens for long enough stretches of the track that it’s not enjoyable for me. There’s a lot to like if you don’t mind that though! The full-arrangement stutters at 0:44-0:53 are my favourite.
