Back from beyond, it is I, the Beast of Red Mages... or Mage of Red Beasts? Who knows. Anyhow, the fact is I'm back and super psyched to have some submissions in my mailbox, a welcome relief from the long drought of April. I thought April was supposed to be all showers?
First up is Sound Test's most frequent submitter, Rexy, with what I would refer to as an antiquing of a relatively new track with her Famicom Royale. In opposition to the standard remix practice of taking an old out of date 8-bit tune and fully realizing it with modern audio, Rexy has taken themes from the latest iteration of the Dragon Quest series and made them sound as though they fit right along with tunes from the original game on NES. Best of all, it's just a blast to listen to, since it harkens back to my childhood days spent unable to read and trying to play Dragon Warrior 2. Following Rexy up, we have long time listener Lontas submitting his first work in, what, nine years? Stunning. Anyhow, a more traditional mix Lontas brings to the table, giving a nice facelift and touch-up to the Lunarian's theme from Final Fantasy IV. Man, it's just nostalgia day for me.
That's all for this week. I'm saving my energy for the onslaught that is next week. Between E3 coverage and finals week at school, the core of my soul may actually melt.
