Final Fantasy VII Remake – Beneath a Stolen Sky [Tribute Album]

After a very long break, mostly due to 2020 being a big mess, we are finally back with a new album. “Beneath a Stolen Sky” is a tribute to Midgar Area tracks from Final Fantasy VII, to keep the spirit of the Remake.
The title is of course inspired by Shinra building the “Floating Pizza” higher society city above the homes of the lower society people’s houses, stealing the sky from them.
And in these difficult times, even if you feel like your “sky” has been stolen from you, I hope that like the characters of the game, you’ll find a way to smile and get it back.

This album features 23 re-arrangements/remixes from tracks that you can hear in the Midgar area in the original FFVII game + the Remake main theme “Hollow”.

This album involved more than 30 musicians and is the 1st of a compilation of albums that will more or less follow the the releases of the next parts of the Remake, also including the original tracks.

Dust#77 by Whyte Wolf [Album]

On the 21st October 2019 – The Whyte Wolf has just released his debut full-length album ’Dust #77’

Whyte Wolf, a Brighton based creative describes his style of production as. “Making noises with an upset computer.”With this poor machine he creates mostly electronic music ranging from ambient soundscapes to the rain-soaked bliss of Paper Crane, from oppressive drones like P R E S S U R E to the happy psychedelic muddle of Dulux Intercourse.

Dust#77 has been described by Au-Fait Magazine as. “A psychedelic experience… Sans the ingestion of controlled substances.” When speaking about the album, his inspiration and his music in general, he said, “While pop music tells you everything is amazing for the happy masses and metal shouts about everything that’s wrong with the world for the angry and irate, there’s never been any music for the man quivering in the corner with no clue what’s going on anymore; that’s where my music comes in!” In his spare time, Whyte enjoys getting lost in nature,playing with his Cat ‘Bob’ and always learning a new skill, be it animation or learning a new programming language. He also composes score and does sound design for short films, one of which was recently produced by and shown at the Cici Film Festival in Sicily. (and a Pixel Mixer member 😉 )
