Desire Drive (Mid-Boss Remix)

Author Comments

Desire Drive is from the fourth stage of the game Touhou Shinreibyou: Ten Desires. The melody of the original is so soothing and frantic, I could listen to it for hours. I tried to match its somnolence and intensity.

I love making these tunes, but this is getting a bit crazy. For 21 hours across four days I played, replayed and edited small details to make this song feel a bit better each time. I had maybe 40 channels, at least 50 different patterns and exactly 35 mixer tracks going. It paid off, but I hope my next tune won't be so obtrusive.

Anyway, listen and let me know what you think! Like, if you want to.

ok now im officially addicted listening to this.

It really sounds polished, almost sterile especially due to the drums, but the rest of the instruments rescue it. Touhou has some really great remixes, the best I think are made by a Japanese producer called Joyh-TV, but usually they're more minimalist than this.
