Remix Roundup: A 7/11 Special

July 23rd, 2012 by Taylor Brown

Greetings, fellow Final Fantasy fans! You’re probably wondering what’s up with the article title this time around; well wonder no longer, as I bring you a remix from Final Fantasy VII and another from Final Fantasy XI! In the past week, OverClocked ReMix has posted two new remixes, both meeting the same level of quality that has come to be expected from the site.

First up is the Final Fantasy XI remix, as it was posted first. Remixing ‘Heaven’s Tower,’ artist Xavier Dang (alias mv) takes an extended approach to the arrangement. It’s one of the longest songs hosted on OverClocked ReMix, though not nearly as long as the Final Fantasy VI/VII remix ‘Prancing Dad.’ Titled ‘Paradis,’ the nearly nine-minute long track is an ambient masterpiece, taking the listener on quite the musical journey. It starts out calm and slowly builds, almost as if you’re ascending the tower the source track names. At around the two minute mark, you enter the tower and the journey truly begins. The rest of the track is beautiful, and well worth the time to listen to it. You can find it here.

The second remix is from Final Fantasy VII, entitled ‘Mother.’ If you’ve played the game or anything else in the Compilation, you’ll understand the significance of the title. Arranging several tracks from the game ( ‘J-E-N-O-V-A’, ‘Listen to the Cries of the Planet’, ‘Mako Reactor’, and ‘Those Chosen by the Planet,’ if you’re curious), the song takes a minimalistic approach to the tracks. Remixer Moomba got his inspiration from another Final Fantasy VII remix, Nekofrog’s ‘The Planet is Dead.’ It’s a very beautiful track, mixing the tracks fluidly and resulting in a song that wouldn’t be too far out of place in the opening credits sequence of a movie. It’s a fantastic listen, and you can find it here.

In other news, the Kickstarter for OCR’s Final Fantasy VI album was suddenly shut down recently, and staff is currently looking into the cause. I’ll post any updates I receive in a comment on this very article, so please stay tuned. Until next time, game on!

    UPDATE!!

    It appears there was a dispute with Square Enix over the Kickstarter, as many have surmised. OCR’s official statement is as follows:

    “UPDATE (7/27): We have been actively working with Square Enix in seeking a resolution which honors and respects copyright owners and fans alike. While nothing is certain at this point, we hope to be able to re-open our Kickstarter project to our supporters some time next week. Thanks for your continued support!”

    More news as it comes.
