Seymour Battle Theme Remix
Weekend Remix: Seymour Of That Beat
Song: Seymour Battle Theme Remix
By: Gage Aka DJ Cyclops
Based On: Seymour Battle Theme From Final Fantasy X
Original Composers: Nobou Uematsu, Masashi Hamazu and Junya Nakano
Watch out fellow remix enthusiasts because this week’s remix is truly a bawse. Whoops, I mean that it’s based off of a boss.
For years, Final Fantasy has delivered countless compositions that easily tickle the ears with audio joy. And that was no different with Final Fantasy X. X delivered quite a few memorable songs, just like other entries in the series–-especially some that were really experimental–-including Seymour’s Battle Theme.
Maybe it’s the beginning keys that drizzle along the intro, or perhaps it’s the orchestra soaring synths that fly throughout this song, but as whole, his theme plays on such a grand scale. I’d almost be against anyone trying to tamper with this tune.
See, I have to give Gage a pass for his remix. Yes, he basically traded in the regular percussion for some hip-hop drums. Yet, seeing as it provides a subtle fit to the rest of the song, it’s an enjoyable switch. In fact, if you’d never heard of the original, you probably wouldn’t even know it’s a remix. The looping of the meat-and-potatoes melody of this song is also a nice touch. And just when you’re lost bobbing your head, Gage finally decides to drop the drums altogether, giving the song a pretty nice breather.
Basically, Gage manages to put his own spin without compromising what makes the original shine.

Until next weekend…GO Party!
