Current games in the wheel:

Last weeks winners was a tie from Hoboka, and Ronald Poe!

The ones Highlighted in Red are Hoboka's choices that he sent me. The ones Highlighted in Green are Ronald Poe's entries that he sent me. Sadly Ronald only sent me 4 games from 4 systems, so i had to fill in the rest, which are highlighted in Blue.

Look under Driver 2. Ctrl + F is a great way to search for things you need. 

Listen to the Soundtrack:

 

Information about the Game and Soundtrack: 

Driver 2: Back on the Streets (Or if you are from America. It's called Driver 2: The Wheelman is Back) Is a video game released in 2000 by Reflections Interactive, published by Infogrames. It is a sequal to the first game released in 1999 The game involves you driving in cars and completing missions to progress within the story. This involves running from the police, and mobs, doing damage to other cars, and looking for suspects and witnesses. The plot involves searching a dead man after 2 men shot him during a shootout in a bar. They believe this leads to more clues and they recruit 2 officers to help with the investigation. 

The music was done by 2 guys. Allistair Brimble (Who at this point was an already established composer from the UK) and Richard Narco. The soundtrack follows in the vein of Funk, particularly from the 70's, like Car Movies. The music at times can be energetic, or slow and....er...funky. There isn't much difference in some tracks, and more or less most follow this style. Some tracks though take a more modern approach, especially within the drum programming. It's not the most innovative soundtrack, but there are some gems to be found on here. 

Compo starts Today at 6th January 2019! and finishes at 20th January 2019!

Voting begins on the 20th January 2019 and finishes on the 27th January 2019. I will inform you who has won on the thread!

Please submit a valid mp3 file, in decent quality that is less than 20mb. It must be easy to access and download. A ThaSauce page will be set up soon, so if you can then submissions. It's been an on/off situation with ThaSauce, so SoundCloud is a good choice if ThaSauce isn't working for you. Right now nothing is set up, so submissions will have to be external from this thread, via download links, or streaming services. I recommend using SoundCloud as a choice of service! Add a link here on this thread, if you can. 

You have 2 weeks to mix! Let's see what you have come up with! Good Luck!

Since Ronald Poe and Hoboka already won last time, and contributed some games, they can only participate with a Bonus Mix! You cannot vote for Bonus Mix's, but for the people who won, they get a vote that Counts Twice!

Umm...correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that Driver 2 (PS2) lacks MIDIs to work with.  N00Bs like me may struggle with that.  Might wanna re-roll the round after you do your own investigation.  But I'm pretty sure I'm right.

 

Anyways, the round is tentatively up.  I will alter it as needed.

I believe you mean track(s). It's a soundtrack, not an individual track, unless of course you were talking about my remix. If that is the case then I'm sorry and you can ignore my post.

It's not your fault lol. It's just folks are busy, and not everyone will like certain soundtracks enough to remix them. Thanks anyways.
