I thought this choon might be good for menus:

It's dubstep, but pretty good.

EDIT: This sounds pretty nice for a menu theme, too:

Anyone think Daedelus could compose something for this game? (nidhogg ost) That game had situation loops (if thats what you call it) and not the pure song tho.

Edit: No ignore that's a terrible idea.

I'm surprised Trance and Techno has polled higher than Breaks, considering Breaks includes Fatboy Slim and a significant proportion of the original Rollcage soundtrack (It was mainly Drum & Bass, followed by Breaks, for both games).

I know right? Honestly, I don't think Trance and Techno fit a game like Grip that much... Just sayin'.

Trance at no less than 140 BPM! d(^^,)b

A pity my sig is too big because I freaking love trance!

I also love this game even more now because trance was included as one of the options. :D

So there is this album I've been listening too. And I think this kind of music would be great in GRIP. Some of these tunes remind me of the tunes back in Rollcage 1.
Soooo, have a listen and be inspired! :D

I also like trance. That's a great music genre to keep you focused on what you're doing.

Breakbeat is my favorite out of all the choices. I hope that even though it's not voted very high, there will be a few choice tracks for us to enjoy.

Even if there isn't, at least there's always the ability to use our own tracks to race to. =P

Are we going to have MP3s, OGGs, or something else entirely?

And are we going to have music that seamlessly loops like ADXs or are we going to have straightforward music?

It'd be seamless loop or smooth transition. As for format, that's really something to decide later. Too early to know.

Starlight 456 wrote:Some slower tempo tracks like Fluke's Atom Bomb (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Inz9Urx40OI) would fit nicely, as well as some of the almost jazz-like music from E-Z Rollers, tracks like Tough At The Top (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uz2R54oh1gI) and Breakbeat Generation, which is more funk then jazz (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7qfyEQR78g).

For more modern things, I think some good styles to look at would be things like Chainsaw by DJ Fresh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHN2suvruag), Stompbox by The Qemists (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rbYwfTGYKM), Night Mover by Stanton Warriors (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zs9FMnzipmM), some Photek stuff like C Note (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_bR9uWn4Ic), The Third Sequence (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esHpGuBkGys), or Terminus (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvtAMsaCWN0).

Obviously, this is only ideas I have for the sort of themes I would like to see in the soundtrack, not like you should try and license all these artists. That's just unrealistic.

One thing I think should be stressed: no brostep stuff. If someone likes it, I mean, everyone has different tastes, but it just doesn't fit the kinda funky "90's alternative electronica" theme that Rollcage has. Plus, it's used in damn near everything it feels like.

Keep in mind this is not the same game as Rollcage. Grip's going for more of a gritty vibe, and upping the intensity.

That said, I do dig that Fluke track, for sure. Has a good intensity without being too high tempo

EZ-Rollers - Tought at the Top' is far too mellow, and Breakbeat Gen is not the style we're aiming for with Grip, at all. Good thing is you can listen to it all you want by pluggin in your own music to the game.

You've got the right kind of intensity with that DJ Fresh track. Kinda gives me a Pendulum vibe in terms of impact.
Stompbox is cool, too. I'm diggin parts of it. Just afraid that something with a lot of the guitar riffs would be lost behind the sound of the vehicles.
Nightmover is too mellow and classic wipeout sounding.
C-note's got the proper intensity but I'm not a fan of the tune itself, mainly the extreme repetition.
The Photeks track gives me the same vibe as Nightmover. Not to say there can't be more mellow tracks, just these don't have that driving push behind them that Grip needs.

Thanks for all the suggestions, it's valuable feedback!

We'd rather have a cohesive sound that's not a mishmash of genres. Then the game loses some of it's identity

They may sound like Acapella+Instrumental simple mash ups but they weren't, I completely remixed some of the tracks from scratch for the album. Like this one, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qz2rfEwSXH4 - which is still my favourite thing I've ever done :P This one as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4Z4Jj32_tg - as we could use whatever we wanted I took a load of old rave tracks and remixed them and slipped them in the cheesier stuff :) We were going to do some mix packs for DJ Hero but sadly fell through :(

Damn, congrats on getting all that exposure with your music, that's awesome!

I don't think your vibe fits at all with Grip, though. Just totally different style, in my opinion

Sucks that the deal with DJ Hero didn't happen :/

These guys would not be cheap. Pretty damn expensive, probably. Unfortunately...

CreepyGhostCalls wrote:Like most people here, I'll choose DnB. It;s the perfect genre for fast-paced games.
I'd recommend lesser known (outside of the DnB fanbase), but extremely talented producers like Signs, Dabs (a lot of producers that released on Eatbrain), Borderline, Sustance, Posij, Optiv & BTK, Nymfo, Skitty.
As for the more known ones, I'd go with Billain (I'm sure he would be really excited to work on a video-game soundtrack), Phace, Misanthrop (which also have a great side-project called Neosignal), Mefjus, Emperor, Ed Rush & Optical, Noisia, Enei, Klute, Black Sun Empire, Jonny L, Calibre (in case you want smoothness), Gridlok, Prolix, The Upbeats, Voodoom.
And obviously Dom & Roland (which has an album in the works atm) and Technical Itch (which just finished one).

I think I've overdone it.

Or,you know, you can just simply get in contact with Rob Playford and ask him for another Moving Shadow soundtrack (although the label died in 2006, it still has the best catalogue in Dnb,, IMO)

Damn this is a lot to take in. I'll have to listen another time and post here again.



I'll be back for the rest of your posts, peeps!

Unfortunately, that's not the case. They're just a team of 2 devs with not too much funds at the moment.

Rollcage introduce me into DnB and Darkcore sound... and I still love it... but perfect was the divergence depends on racetracks... for deeper industrial look there was great Technical Itch and Dom & Rolland (where great alternatives are Switch Technique or Stakka & Skynet) for lighter themes there was aslo great Aquasky or Omni Trio.
I hope that you will bring this feeling back too.
If you want some frash more modern sound there was mentioned Noisia with some overlap to Dub Step. Or Savant (Aleksander Vinter) which is great musician with lot of different setups. For example Ninur album sounds great for me (it is bit darker then rest of his production) and I also love his complextro setting but I sure that is not good choice for Grip. :)

And even if I am kind of a fan of dub step... I am not sure if this is a good choice for Grip... When I saw the first trailer I was almost transfered back to my childhood and there should be the (almost retro today) same soundtrack.
