You wouldn’t expect anything remarkable (at least in the good sense!) from a set of remixes for a video game, particularly from a title like Tekken Tag, a popular beat-’em-up title, had it’s soundtrack given over to remixers as part of a competition being run by Juno. To give people a little inspiration, some pretty great producers were lined up to try their hand at creating something out of music presumably written to set the mood whilst you punch pixels in the face with a scantily clad martial arts expert.
Surprisingly, the results are pretty outstanding. Ed Banger head honcho Busy P’s remix is a great french house track, with that unmistakably gallic filtered sound, and Logistics flexes his muscles with a solid drum and bass interpretation of ‘Night Falls’. The best example however, has to be from the ever eclectic Siriusmo, creating a pretty beautiful piece of music, that has an amazingly cinematic feel and goose-bump inducing climax.
