As usual when I try to start a new project something gets in the way. This time it’s been a while without updates, but to compensate for that, today I’ll write about a very nice remix that I actually heard a couple of minutes ago. While I’ve tried to avoid Final Fantasy songs, mostly because that’s what many think about when it comes to video game music. Probably because Nobuo Uematsu is such an amazing composer.
My friend Zoiy who also enjoys a good remix, he’ll be one of my main sources to find new songs to write about, sent this song to me earlier, and it’s actually a remix of one of my favorite songs from Final Fantasy VII. While the beginning of the song made me think about the IIDX song 5.8.8, which is also good, it soon plays the familiar melody of Cosmo Canyon. The piano arrangement is great and the strings just adds to the greatness. When the wonderful bass line begins there’s also some very nice deep drum sounds that makes me think about those big taiko drums. Just listen to it and you’ll probably get what I mean. Reuben Kee managed to make a great song even better, and it might be even more in the line of what Nobuo Uematsu intended to create while he was limited by the specs of the Sony Playstation.
Here it is, Ascension to Cosmo Canyon by Reuben Kee, enjoy!
