    Great stuff as usual Shivaxi! A lot of the tracks on that EP would be wonderful for a space based map (as the album cover would show.) Loads of cool textures and driving arrangements and mix. Great work to both of you!

      I love the menu track redux. This should be the games menu music, not the current track and here is why.



      Fabian's track is excellent work in its own right. It is the perfect track to use on a trailer who's purpose is to hook the old player base. However, when I listen to it now having heard it a many times I do not get excited excited to play UT4 and that is a serious problem. The menu music should pump the player up to play the game. Nostalgia is good, excitement is better. Enter your track.

      I have now listened to it 20+ times so I know the newness of it has worn off. The first thing to note is the opening, most of the time a player hears is the menu track it will be for 30 seconds or less. Yours does a much better job of kicking into gear faster. Right from the start I enjoy it and do not have to wait to get to a good part. Second this track is is much more intense. Fabians sounds more like an opera, and this has a more sexy and aggressive sound. Listing to it the words that come to mind are "f0ck yeah" and that is exactly what you want for Unreal Tournament. I still enjoy listing to it both the beginning and the entire track over and over and that is important. How many time will people load this game over it's lifetime....A lot.

      Great job.

        Hey that means a lot, thank you for sharing your opinion on the track, glad to know people really enjoy it =) I think I'd explode if our track ends up being used for the main menu, let alone any of my tracks being used for official maps...that'd be a dream come true. I never expect anything when producing music, I do this for fun and just the pure enjoyment of sound and music, and it's great when others can share in that same enjoyment and get something out of listening to the track as much as I do creating the track. I'm getting a little philosophical I guess but yeah, Mellow Sonic and I took a lot of inspiration from the original UT99 theme of course, with our own twist and ideas on the matter to create something we really liked, and in our own style, and again all just for fun ^^

        Again thanks so much!

          Got a new release out, nothing for UT4 I don't think but figured I share with ya'll:

            Shivaxi & Xenofish - Future Prophecy
            WAV --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/ym56ded42f...op%29.wav?dl=1





            Something Xenofish and I have had in the works for a while, going to be a free release out on Ektoplazm, 4 track EP titled "No Turning Back". Wanted to bring this sound to UT, so made a loopable version of it



            Shivaxi & Xenofish - Tesla Bass
            WAV --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/ie5fj4qxbo...op%29.wav?dl=1





            Another one here by Xenofish and I. This may be a bit crazy, but we think it could work for a really hectic and super fast paced Deathmatch Map possibly (hence in the video I spawned 32 bots :P). Lemme know what you guys think.

                THX for sharing all of your own music and your collaboration work too And also THX sharing the WAV's!

                Most tracks are too chaotics for me but even then, I can say it is very well made

                  Cybernetika gave me permission to UTify this track as well, so when he finishes it I will be editing and making it a UT song for sure!
                  What happened to this edit? it's been almost a year.

                    Hm, forgot about that one. Yeah I did make the edit so that it looped and fit with UT, I must of forgot to upload it. I'll try to find it and put it up on the first post

                    In other news, sorry I haven't been producing much for UT4, but I have been producing and got some new releases, so I figured I'd share them here for anyone who's interested:



                    This just came out on Plush Recordings, a tune I made inspired by the Na Pali Sky Haven from the original Unreal. Xenofish and I also finished our new EP and that's out as well on my Bandcamp:

                      Made a new remix of a Minecraft tune I really fell in love with, not UT related but, oh well =P

                          new tune here, it coouuuld be UT? I mean it's very very chill but, UT99 and UT2k4 did have a few chill tracks, so who knows, lemme know what you guys think:

                          EDIT: on second thought this probably would never fit UT with those chord changes later on, hmm...

                            That's a cool DnB Track, Shivaxi, but maybe a bit too bare-metal for UT. I mean there's basically only drums and that bell-synth. I think you need a bit more instrumental variation.

                              Started this tonight with Xenofish, probably gonna title it Tunnel Vision. Thinking this has got a pretty decent UT4 vibe, tell me what you guys think
