Fastloaders Ninja Musicology

Massive respects to the FastLoaders!

 

Remixing tunes from The Last Ninja is a tricky business - seemingly everybody remembers them differently. Remixing them in a hard rock style is even trickier - mostly because music from the Last Ninja series has been remixed over and over so many times on RKO already (well over 200 remixes and counting). Yet, the FastLoaders, a group of Last Ninja enthusiasts / rock-band from Norway have managed to do it better than most by treating the tunes with utmost care and respect, with faithful arrangements, and with impeccable mixing.

New C64 SID Album by 8 Bit Weapon!

Greetings Programs!

Our new chipmusic concept album is a collection of ambient music crafted to help facilitate relaxation. Over 1 hour of mind defragmenting tones for you to enjoy! Each sound is hand crafted from the Commodore 64 personal computer's SID sound chip. Portions of the album were co-written by a computer as many of the notes were set to be selected by the CPU at random! All tones have been digitally processed for maximum smoothness and optimum ambiance. Relax and Enjoy!

See what some original SID Composer legends have to say about the album:

It's beautiful... it's a work of art... genius. - Martin Galway

Top notch! I both enjoy and respect it. - David Warhol

Very nice and soothing lengthy 8-bit soundscapes... nice for digital meditation! Nice work ! - Jeroen Tel

So ambient my hips fell off - Ben Daglish

 

Love,

 

Seth & Michelle

 Commando (Sound of SceneSat Edit)

Arranged by Firestorm

Wow. This is quite a tour de force!

In style it reminds me of Jesper Kyd's and Richard Jacques' symphonic-electronic game soundtracks, and it's absolutely brilliant at that. It has a great variety of moods all interwoven so that it actually tells a story.

So, the arrangement is simply brilliant, but it also brings a very professional sounding virtual orchestra to the table coupled with some well-placed electronic sounds and drums.

I really look forward to hearing this remix as-is performed by a real orchestra at a game music festival!

 Zoids (The movie)

Arranged by plasm303

Even if I am a big fan of the original SID, there are enough Zoids remixes out there to warrant being picky. A Zoids remix needs to have something special, and I can truly say this one has taken a special place in my heart.
Where the original is more of a stomping industrially epicy thing, the conversion to piano and female chanting took me a few minutes to adjust to. It takes a number of elements from Zoids, and puts them in a wholly different context in which they get new meaning. I'm surprised it worked as well as it did; this version carries a lot of emotion for me. I think the sounds of rain is a nice touch of atmosphere, but the 'female vocals' (I suspect they're sampled synths) in combination with just the right notes on the piano swoon me the most.

 Dutch Breeze/Robocop 3 (Progressive Uplift)

Arranged by Lagerfeldt

I cannot imagine a remix of this epic track more beautiful than this.. The only one who can make a better one, can only be Tel himself...the greatest ever...

Project: Galway

Project Galway

by Martin Galway

Amazing project that gives you Martin Galway's C64 tunes recorded directly from his very own chip, as they were meant to be heard: with the most sensitive and well-balanced 6581 filter ever heard. Highlights of this CD include the previously-unhead music from Street Hawk, and the extraordinary sensitivity of his Wizball soundtrack. Alistair "Boz" Bowness imported Martin's own C128D and wrote his own cross-assembler for this. If you care about the quality of the SID going into your ears: add this to your collection.
