Life is often like a tactical role playing game. Instead of rushing in head first to take it on, sometimes one must strategize and plan their moves, while also adapting to any new challenges that come your way. That’s why this week we’re taking a trip to the kingdom of Ivalice for this edition of the Weekend Remix.
Final Fantasy Tactics may have taken the Final Fantasy franchise into a different gameplay style, but the game still had many of the same thematic and production factors found in any of Square hallmark series, including the music.
Decisive Battle lives up to its name as it’s a dramatic symphony that has just the right amount of punch — especially in the percussion department — to make whatever fight it soundtracks seem as if any move you make has to count.
Through the talented words and production hands of Random, none of Decisive Battle’s life or death flair is lost. In fact, Random manages to make it seem like a perfect fit, serving as the perfect hard sounding backdrop to his impeccable lyrics. As you’ll hear, the rapper has no problem switching up his flow while making it seem so effortless.
With Ran’s class abilities as a rapper and producer at the top, consider this remix mastered.
