What a surprise... :lol: The Solstice site has just released soundsamples from the Gran Turismo 4 soundtrack for our listening pleasure. :wub:

Since I am a Hallucinogen-fan I was itchy to check out the latest killer from the Soundlabs: 'Bubble 'n Tweak'....

 

What can I say? Its a really amazing tune. Simon seems to be moving in a lot of different directions these days. Good, steady beat and a thumping bass that will make it sound like Armageddon if you've got the right equipment. Don't let those first 15 seconds fool you - it quickly morphs into a darn good trance-track. It's gotta be the slowest Hallucinogen-tune (134 bpm). It sounds like what you'd get if you took The Antidote - Empty dot (Hallucinogen mix) and Younger Brother - Scanner and threw them into a blender. Fantastic. Good for the dancefloor, too... Maybe as a warm-up tune to start a set. Another blaster from the master. :lol:

 

What do you guys think? :rolleyes:

I'm sceptic, sorry.

The melody sounds too much like YB's Scanner.  :(

hmm, i can hear a few similarities btwn that track and scanner, but from the preview, it doesn't seem like we are even shown the main melody of the song. similar rhythm though...

hmm, maybe... but imo the very end of the track was where it was building to something better... and the sample just leaves you hanging.

 

but i suppose this is a moot point until we hear the damn thing in its entirety.. my point was just that you can't always judge a track by its sample =)

okay so I listened to all samples and yeah...promising :)

to my ear the best tunes were from Eat Static, Koxbox, Quadra and I must agree with insejn here, the last track made by 'The Antidote vs Synthetic' is the gem here! :)

That hallucinogen's track...ouwwff :FF :E :F big time! :ph34r: I mean, it's like he's mediocre tunes - energy - melodies = :unsure: ... and most here just say "rocking hard! /m/" haha :D I know I know, you can't argue about tastes and that's not my intention :) but hallu is just going to a bad direction :(

Still, nice to see that two of my favourites, ES and Koxbox know how to do some deliciouuuus tunes :>>>>

I guess that short sample sounded ok, but seeing as he hasn't released anything as Hallucinogen in ages I would be very surprised if he released an incredible tune for a video game soundtrack. It would make more sense if he saved the great stuff for his own label, I mean the Unusual Suspect 2 compilation could really use an extra good tune instead of those average collaborations.

I find that track pretty promising, you can't even guess what is in the song from 45 seconds. To me it sounded a lot like his old style, just slightly slower.

Hmm.. Don't worry too much. The average "trough the mouth-breading" GT-player won't know the difference between Hallucinogen and Scooter.

 

I kinda liked the track, but it was just OK, absolutely nothing spectacular. <_<
