Weekly Special #7

Posted on

Sorry this is late … but hey. Labor Day Weekend deadlines? ‘Aint nobody got time for that.

And with that in mind, here’s a fun little collection of tracks! They’re slightly more obscure remixes in my opinion, but really good nonetheless. Here we go!


Panzer Nightopia (Message from Nightopia) – NiGHTS into dreams …
ReMixer – MattInc
Album – NiGHTS: Lucid Dreaming

And for your symphonic track of the week I give you … Panzer Nightopia!  Strong detache strings and a very clear piano dominate this track, but it actually ends up being an interesting combination of orchestral/organic instruments and background electronic percussion/ambience.

This remix does a good job of creating a really cool atmosphere out of what could be considered a kind of repetitive source melody. Within the context of NiGHTS: Lucid Dreaming, it plays its role of first track excellently, setting the mood and prepping excitement for the rest of the album.

Have a listen and see what you think!

Black Hole Boogie (Space Jungle) – Shuttle Rush
ReMixer – halc
Album – Shuttle Rush: Shuttle Remix

Ohhhh yes. Get ready to boogie. This remix is a more recent discovery of mine, but already I find myself beatboxing the bassline just about everywhere. Halc is an old friend (not actually, but metaphorically. Within the context of having heard many of his songs), but he does some nice new stuff in here, throwing a bit of dubsteppiness into the beat in spots without wavering from the groove.

While melody is not really the strongest suit of this particular track, the bassline is as catchy as a cold. Enjoy it, my friends … with as much bass as your little speakers can muster.

Sidenote: I don’t know why I wasn’t able to find this track on YouTube … quite a few of the other remixes from the Shuttle Rush: Shuttle Remix album were on there, but not this one (?).  At any rate, I found it on SoundCloud, so you can still give it a listen.


Family Legacy (Inn & House Theme) – Legacy of the Wizard
ReMixer – Level 99
Album – Unsung Heroes

Upbeat, driven rock. Plain and simple. Now that’s what I’m in the mood for.

Honestly, that’s about all I can really say. Fun melody, nice jam. Just give it a listen, see what you think!

Again, apologies for the weird link … this track I couldn’t find anywhere except on the official Unsung Heroes website.


So yeah. That’s all I got! Until next week my friends! Please like and comment below if you enjoyed the music!

    On the whole, I really like the Nightopia remixes. Panzer Nightopia is no exception. You can’t call it easy listening, but it has a very pleasant, feeling feel to it. I love how ambient it feels, how far and wide it seems. The piano isn’t too harsh, and the strings, echoing soft and loud, give it a really cool feel. Brief reverb-thing and occasional ‘static’ put a techno, new age sorta image in your head, but the strings keep it soft, and the ending fades out gently, leaving you with a sense of tranquility. Definitely a favorite.

    Ah, halc. Black Hole Boogie starts off with a very pixelized-game feel. Then the dubstep comes in with the synth and then strings to give a cool, upbeat, yet sorta ambient feel. He keeps switching things up throughout, so there’s very little drag after almost four minutes, despite the pretty unvarying underlying tech-tune. It has a rather unique sound to it. Not bad. Not a favorite, but not bad.

    Hard rock can get old, but Family Legacy isn’t bad. It’s got a very fun melody, like you say. I like the feel, and the guitar is more than just driving electric. Leave it to Level 99. Very fast-paced, upbeat feel. Better cymbal-y drums would be nice, but it doesn’t feel lacking, and doesn’t limp or drag. Very nice. Has a feel-good feel to me.

    Thanks, and keep posting! 🙂
