Gotta love music that appeals to the hip-hop head and inner nerd in me. Evil Needle and oriJanus just dropped this super dope remix of the "Victory Fanfare" theme from Final Fantasy VII (check here to hear the original), and it. is. awesome. I can't claim to have ever played the Final Fantasy series, but I'm a big fan of video game/hip-hop remixes, so this gets me. For those unfamiliar with oriJanus (as I was before hearing this), he's a 19-year-old producer/emcee/graphic designer/photographer out of Bakersfield, California. As for Evil Needle, he's a beatmaker from France repping Soulection and the HW&W collective. Cool? Cool. Now that we're all acquainted, stream and download the "Fanfare" remix below.
HW&W producer Evil Needle recently let loose this remix of Freddie Joachim's "Golden Temple", originally off Joachim's 2012 album Fiberglass Kisses. The end result is a silky smooth piece laced with piano chops, crisp kicks, head-nodding claps, and smoky, soulful vocals. Stream the remix and read what Evil Needle had to say about it below.
"Freddie asked me to Remix this [a] long time ago. Unfortunately I totally forgot about it and only discovered this yesterday on my HD... So yeah, nothing impressive, just a loop that I finished real quick. Enjoy yo." - Evil Needle
