I think I can put it here even tho You probably know them:

https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/music2/0 ... XRd02bo5Cw

https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/music2/0 ... aiCqi-kcbg

https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/music2/0 ... zKwuBwvAUg

Indeed, these are from RC2, and I feel if We want to find music that fits GRIP we should be based on those 3.

https://youtu.be/T4kDpITTpHw

and https://youtu.be/TSdZQC2eb4k

Ha, oh right, the PC soundtrack!

I grew up playing the playstation version. To be honest, most of the tracks on the PC soundtrack don't compete. If you haven't experienced Rollcage on Playstation, you're missing out hehe. :P

When Outworld tracks would come on in the Tournament and you heard "Pascal - Cool Maneuver" and "Des Tong - Organised" , it really set the scene for the alien planet so well.

Plus the PS1 Rollcage intro... come on... "Technology" is the dirtiest tune my child brain ever heard! :lol:

I never played on playstation ^_^ I was only PC, xbox 360 and nintendo 64 user

but even so pc soundtracks seems a lot better for my taste, the 3 songs i mentioned above are really well made, they havent get old after 10 years or so. they feel like they were made atleast 2 years ago, I wouldnt mind if these were uploaded on youtube under the UKF account :lol:

Need intensity Razer! The highest tempo one in there is the last track, but the style does not fit Grip at all. Too happy. We want BADASS

LustVanGoth wrote:Celldweller, Pendulum have nice electro industrial music :) i was listening to X ray dog its instrumental music mostly but when i was listening to this i realised how good some track will be in this game :D

We'd like to stay away from vocals, and Celldweller isn't the best fit for Grip anyway, me thinks. Pendulum has some pretty wicked tracks but they are $$$

Azurex wrote:Whilst still technically DnB, what about some Jungle?

Yeah there's no prob with Jungle. I find compared to dnb though, it lacks melody.

It's funny, cause I was actually thinking the other day that classical music would sound cool with Grip in slow-mo.
Slo-mo Grip is awesome, by the way.

Potty can you do me a favour and combine all the music in that thread to one big post with youtube links here? then I can easily listen to it and actually give feedback. And the rest of the people on here can as well.

I produce music as well, any chance to help with the soundtrack Chris?

That Decoy track is pretty cool actually. Not a fan of the dubstep one though. Not surprising :P I think we'll stay away from dubstep.

I sent you back an email regarding your music. Did you get it?

I love Trance. Grew up with it. You'll see at least a few tunes in Grip

Soooo, have a listen and be inspired! :D
Fracture & Neptune - Retrospect

Cool, very old-school kinda sound, and we do need at least a few of those kinda tracks in Grip as homages to Rollcage

harrisonosirrah wrote: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.

There should be some breaks. They would fit in so well.

We're going to reach out to them. They've got a badass sound. Won't be cheap, though.
Even with Kickstarter money, the budget will not be that big.
You need A LOT of money to make a video game. And if you're trying to compete graphically, then it's even more money.

0Blueaura wrote:How about this:

It's a little busy. Might take away from the sound of the game.

Row wrote: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.

Yeah, dubstep isn't making it onto the soundtrack :P

As for bringing back the old sound: Grip is a different game with a different feel. As much as I like the Rollcage and RC: Stage 2 soundtracks, I don't think most of the songs fit well into what we're envisioning for Grip.

Lol WROBL, as mych as I listened to Gamemaster when I was younger, that is SO far off from the sound we're going for with Grip.

That Prototypes remix is actually a good fit minus the vocals and synthy pop bullshit halfway through
The freestylers and Pendulum remix is also good, but it needs a dub mix. No vocals in Grip.
Prodigy and Pendulum = $$$

"Bad Company - The Nine" is the best of that bunch if you ask me. The others are either too underground sounding or not intense enough

landvaarder wrote:I think this would fit:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-jkLGAOdys

It's got elements that fit, but most of it has samples that are too mellow/friendly, and the vocals don't fit Grip at all.

potterman28wxcv wrote:I love this track : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdQhxztj8Cc

Yeah it's cool, there's intensity to it and it's got good melody, but it's too "happy" with it's samples, and the vocals... way too friendly for guns and missiles ;)

After writing all these replies, I feel like I've been shutting down most suggestions. Sorry about that :P

It's just that we have a distinct theme for the game, and we want to make sure the music properly conveys that theme.

I think the main things to think about when suggesting music is:

-) Intensity: we need a decently high bpm, with a real push behind the song
-) No vocals. Vocal tracks just don't fit into Grip's theme
-) No "happy" tunes. The samples/sounds used in the songs should be powerful and intense rather than friendly and "pretty"
-) We're not really into using old tunes, or classics, or retro. Good example is "Lost Tribe (Matt Darey) - Gamemaster" (sorry WROBL :P)

I appreciate you guys posting all these suggestions. I wouldn't be listening to them all if i didn't.

I will yet again suggest Dom & Roland. I mean, his later albums have a type of sound that could fit well in Grip. A few examples being:

Footnotes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2TMvfnmKbI
Raptor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-4aZPmj8tw
Quadrant 6 (with Optical): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74h37TRNurU
Enforced: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nw4mdoRPIUI
Terminate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFdWr363esI

Since he already worked on some songs for RCSII's PSX OST, maybe he could help you out on GRIP's OST too! :)

EDIT: My suggestions on Potty's post are from back when we didn't know what was going on here, so expect a lot of expensive choices... :mrgreen:

Do We also have to think about those less popular authors? I know we need, its about almighty dolla.

My suggestions for certain Authors (those more popular) are:

Noisia- Obviously

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEAHi-xb35E

Bassnectar- lots of different songs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL2m-32pV8I

Xilent- Polish artist that makes very special Drum 'n' bass, as well as very good dubstep (not skrillex mainstream)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzXRA2ZYRZE

Gemini- Got a lot of great tunes and well made remixes

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyY7oNGh4vU

Komatic & Technicolour - Daydreamer - That's the only song I heard from them, but I think they could fit with some

Feed Me - Popular as Noisia, but maybe his offer will cost less :lol:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4tXhw4CKrs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhuqYgjp7PQ

Knife Party - Also very popular, Legends better known as Pendulum, May have some great songs.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9ewEpSOGXA

Pendulum- As Above, powerful electro-rock band.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h17WaF6alVY

Tristam and Pegboard Nerds- They may not suit to the game, but Tristams vocals are great.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usXhiWE2Uc0

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMokMQ8Bu7Y

Netsky- God of liquid Drum 'n' bass. Got some powerful songs too.

https://youtu.be/-RREJ5qSnHc?t=1m27s

https://youtu.be/cG7cRDcPY3k?t=1m6s

Feint- Another drum'n'bass creator. Very powerful one.

https://youtu.be/UrxcrZU070E?t=59s

https://youtu.be/rqbMrRDOu34?t=57s

xKore - Last Words- This song is also nice, xKore may have more of songs like these.

Nero- Popular as hell tho his songs are amazing

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmz0jVucv9c

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFykqOXnZlg

Noisestorm- Creator of very powerful songs.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKRRWQq5f5E

These tracks are amazing to be honest. I wish I knew more Trance songs like these.
The usual Trance on youtube is the Goa - psychedelic one ; I love it as well, but not as much as these two.

Agreed. Definitely my favorite track in all of the wipeout osts. A cool song to have in grip would be this song. I think it would be awesome to have Dom and Roland in the grip osts. My favorite song by him
I didn't even know what was in the splatter pack before I bought it.
