OCR03121 - Final Fantasy X 'Laguna Tides'

Recommended Posts

Besaid had an extremely peaceful and gorgeous theme that matched it's location, so taking that source and adding a watery, percussive feel to it makes it even better. Synths were well done, and the percussion gave this otherwise calm track some life and energy. Solid as hell Emunator.

This is a very nicely done remix. The slow pace and the drum selection reminds me a lot of Shoji Meguro's works (composer for many of the Megami Tensei series); as if there were a combination between Megami Tensei and Final Fantasy. I don't recall the Besaid Island song as being one of my favored in the game, but I really, really like this mix. Very nicely done!

Nice underwater, glassy textures in the beginning! I love the ambient soundscape you've created here. Cool synth solo too. I agree, I like the staccato run because it stands out.

Loved this track through the workshop, love it here. A proper WBG song. I'm keeping it on repeat while grinding away at some game design. Kudos!

Awesome track Wes, I remember loving this one in the WIP forums. I don't recall that synth solo at the end though, must be a newer addition. I love it! The instrumentation has a really relaxing vibe to it, but that faster paced percussion really keeps things moving forward. Well done!

Neat underater feeling. I love the original source, and you really nailed the arrangement. The choice of synths/instruments is well done and the percussion fits really well too. The overall soundscape is well filled with ear candy (synths, pads, FX). Loved it, nice job! :)

Isn't Laguna a FF8 character BTW? lol

Very nice - this can easily be a background music for some puzzle game - very carefree and relaxing. Love the d'n'b-ish section @2:17 - nice change of pace :) Very good job!

Late to the party, but I've been checking out other DnB / breakbeat styled mixes lately as I'm starting to branch out a little more in that direction myself.  

Anyway--WOW!  I really dig this!  I tend to like to produce more relaxing / slow music myself, so DnB never appealed to me much before, but stuff like this (and other Liquid DnB type music) really inspires me.  Absolutely love the buildup and mystery in the beginning, it had me on the edge of my seat curious with where the song was going.  And the synth used toward the end was a really nice touch.  I've just listened to about 10 breakbeat or dnb songs, and this is the first I've felt compelled to actually post a comment on.  Bravo.
