Track 091 // Length: 4:24 // Style: Drum 'n Bass // Speed: 176 BPM // Measures: 194 // Loops: 23 // Time Taken: 8 days


This one was created for an independent project. This is intended to be a battle/boss battle theme. I've had a history of remixing Boss music that ended up doing really well amongst the community. This time it's a Drum 'n Bass piece with a touch of orchestral instruments enhanced by synths. I tried to make it as intense as I could, I do think dying down the drums to bring them up really help illustrate a sense of being able to think your actions during gameplay, while still fighting a tense battle. Most of the focus with this one was chord play. Making things work that you wouldn't normally hear. My childhood jazz background really helped with that bit.


I know 8 days doesn't sound like a lot, but I'll be honest I've never felt more focused and motivated in my life. There would often be times I'd stay up over 24 hours at a time to work on it. I've done nothing this past week and a half except work on this. It's a project I'm super excited for, and I cannot wait to see the final product, assuming everything follows through smooth as silk.


You all know what to do! All honesty is greatly appreciated! And thank you all so much for the listen!

Totally wicked. Love it.

Thank you!

If this were to be used in geometry dash, I'd see a hectic demon rated level from it. But still I dig it :D

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

XD I could see it. Something really metal and scary as the level, something that says "better get done quick". Thanks a lot for that!

First time listening to your stuff, and I am finding enjoyment in it.

As someone else said before me, the channels do seem unbalanced, the left has much more at once. Next time give the right a little more love.

But aside from that nitpick, I can't seem to find any other flaws. Good on you!

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

Believe me, I've been testing this out on my current project. Yeah, it sounds better. I might even go through THIS one and remaster it real quick before reposting it. I guess i got too excited to pay close enough attention XD.

Thank you very much for this. Here's to dreams unraveling

WHERE'S THAT BOSS AT!?

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

Wherever it is, i hope it's a formidable foe. Thanks so much

Hey, as someone who's been around your works for what, 12 years, I mean this. I hope you get in on the project this song is for. There's a reason this review includes that sentiment.

I'd use this for a boss fight if I was making a RPG. I think it's stellar. Rock on Pauly B. You deserve it because you earned it.

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

lol Long time no see there bud! Yeah you've been there since the beginning. Thank you so much for being there this whole time. My fingers are crossed, toes, and eyes are all crossed XD
