OCR00751 - Final Fantasy VIII "Desperados"

Recommended Posts

Final Fantasy VIII 'Desperados'

Cool. I don't like the intro that much, but one the remix gets going its better. Something's still wrong with it, though...

After listening through it, I think it's the mixing. You can hardly hear anything other than the drums, the bass, and that first synth loop that comes in. Which isn't bad, it just means that it's repetitive.

I'm liking the break in the middle, though.

Overall, I kinda like this, but kinda feel like it could use some more work. If I could dance without embarrassing myself, I would definitely be dancing to this mix. It's not the kind of thing I'd just listen to sitting down though.

I loved the intro, it leads you up to an "oh shit" moment when the original song begins. I could listen to it forever, its definantly on my gamermix playlist.

Oof. This one is a very WORTHY remix of "A Man with a Machine Gun" My hats off to Standby for the remix. I love the length of it, nothing repetitive in it either. And some very original moments are in there too

Around 1995, 1996 this sort of music was *very* popular in the Netherlands. The hit lists were filled with it. You call it techno, we called it (happy) hardcore.

...I just wanted to say that if this remixn had been released back then, Standby had gotten VERY rich.

Wow, this remix totally rocks my world. :D

:) Kickass remix....just BRING OUT THE STRINGS!!!! The synth was the best part in the original. Happy hardcore suits this song perfectly. Sounds almost Dune-inspired (dune as in Hardcore Vibes, not Arrakis). Slick DnB and Snare programming. JUST BRING OUT THE SYNTH!!!! please. One more version and it'll be perfect...

Nice work, I really like Standby's work. If only there was more than just the two that are out now... regardless, this piece is one of my favorites from OCRemix to date. Great work, and keep it up!

The problem with Desperados, as you all have said, is that the beat and some of the synths are loud, while other synths and such are too soft. So, to truly appreciate this, you have to really crank it, prefferably on headphones. It's one of my favorite OC remixes... Huge props to the maker.

Full throttle dudes! Techno as fast as you can get it anywhere. The beats just explode in your face accompanied with many different synths, an arrangement that even if you don´t like it, your leg will still shake it with the rhytm.

Overhelming techno stuff from Stanby, at maximum velocity.

You trick us with a slow beat...then pick us up with a faster beat, then slam the heavy stuff into us, the stuff that make people headbang. Im a skeptic about remixing this song, as it already SOUNDS like one, but you did it quite well.

You took my favorite final fantasy 8 song, and made it better. I bow in both respect and appreciation.

Man with a Machine Gun is one of my favorite songs ever made by Nobou Uematsu, and me being a Nobou Uematsu fan makes that a big deal. This THE favorite mix of Nobou Uematsu's songs of mine, and me bing a Nobou Uematsu fan makes that a big deal. The slow start gives you a delusion and all of the sudden BAM, PIMPSLAPPED, you break into a hardcore beat. I LOVE YOU STANDBY!
