Sir_NutS (Paul Michael Molina), hits us again, this time with a mellower, downtempo synth jam featuring warm, pitch-drifting, melting synths & dusty beats, arranging Ben Prunty's title theme from FTL:
"I figured you guys were getting tired of the endless flood of synthwave remixes from me, so I guess something different is appropiate. I went into this one trying to do something warm, lo-fi/analog-sounding, and also unlike most of my remixes, not in your face all the time. So this is much mellower and more deliberate in pacing than my usual stuff. FTL is a great game, and Ben Prunty made a soundtrack for it that fits perfectly. I spent hundreds of hours playing this, and the soundtrack stuck with me, so it was only a matter of time before I tackled it.
I hope everyone enjoys this one, I like the results, and I'm happy that I went into sorta unknown territory and came back with something alright to show."
Groovy vibe/aesthetic shift for Mike; I can never really get too much of his particular flavor of synthwave, but this is lower-fi, mellow, & comparatively stripped down, and right from those introductory, drifting/melting chords, you know it's gonna be good. Vaporwave? Retrowave? Something-wave... judges were unanimous; Rexy provided a great breakdown & analysis:
"Structure-wise, it's one run-through of the source but with a whole bunch of modifications. The backing melody's irregular syncopation from 0:48, the little melody flourishes in the first half (0:36, 1:46, the sine pluck at 1:58) and the source arpeggio changed into a filter-heavy sequence (1:06) all stuck out. The additional synth solo in the 1:23 section also added some much-needed warmth in the lower end. And the square legato synth at 2:50 is all original despite having a similar tone and rhythm to a left-panned synth later on in the source. It's a sign that you knew the BGM inside and out and achieved a compelling arrangement while still respecting the qualities of Ben Prunty's composition.
Seriously, I got nothing else to say - great job, hey ho, front page, let's go."
I got nothing else to say, either; Ben's score to FTL really resonated with fans & fit the game like a glove, and Mike's taken that & given it a watery, warm, & well-textured makeover. Great stuff - enjoy!

This take feels like it shares some basic DNA with YoshiBlade's
DK2 mix, "Be Kind, Rewind", even down to that
I really like this mix and I love seeing the FTL soundtrack getting some love. This listens like it's an extension of an already great source, but this is a bit more groovy. I can feel contemplative, sure, but I can bob my head to it as well.

Wow. I think you made aesthetic advances from the original that make nothing but perfect sense.
