Wow; newcomer Leisurebeam (Brian Sampson) debuts with a long-form, chill, & cinematic EDM journey, arranging "Sigma Stage 2" from the legendary Mega Man X OST. MMX just turned 25 years old, and damn if that soundtrack doesn't hold up like a fine wine; the artist writes:
"Hi, there! Thank you for considering the remix for inclusion on OC ReMix. I would love for my track to come up on Rainwave!"
While the bassline here does repeat itself a bit, the level of texture & layering work which evolves overhead is quite nice; a canopy of synthesized oscillations, drifting across the soundscape between the piano-led melodic riffs... and everything's rather purdy, in general. There's an EDM sub-skeleton that moves things along, but leaves plenty of room for the chill, expansive ambient & harmonic work. Larry Oji writes:
"Nice work, Brian! Very lush soundscape and textures throughout, and you did a wonderful job constantly keeping different elements of "Sigma Fortress 2" in play as you varied up the textures and instrumentation. It can be tough to have a near 7-minute track remain interesting and evolving throughout, but you had no trouble at all, and this was a smooth, crystalline listen. Definitely a good piece to put on at night. Welcome aboard, and congrats on joining the ranks of OCR and joining the Rainwave rotation! I hope you keep 'em coming!"
If the double-linking was too subtle, well, you should definitely check out Rainwave ;)
Cool debut from Brian, who uses an extended runtime to explore some solid sound design ideas that frame the source melody in a new light and make for transporting & engaging listening; certainly hope to hear more. Enjoy!

I'm in a very nice way reminded of the soundtrack to FTL! If I would criticize anything, the piano is a bit meandering for my taste, but it is so in a very genre-appropriate way. I'd personally prefer a more considered, melancholy, darker piano part. Enough about my tastes. I definitely enjoy the long-form travel through the soundscapes, which has both quieter details and larger components, winding up and down along the ride. Very nice.
