Jeremy Parish looks back on Final Fantasy VII

I said we'd be jumping over to N64 Works, and I meant what I said... it's just that it's happening, uh, gradually. In this case, we're defining the shape of N64 by what wasn't there: Specifically, one of the biggest and most popular games of the late ’90s. One part historic overview of the business politics of the N64 era, one part look back at the compelling introductory design of Final Fantasy VII's opening chapter, you'd better believe this video was basically just an excuse for me to play a classic game from outside the bounds of the Video Works project in an effort to bolster my spirits during the age of social distancing.

"Nobuo Uematsu's epic score from FINAL FANTASY VII has always been a constant source of inspiration in my life, as I'm sure it is with many others," notes arranger RoboRob. "Some of my biggest and more unique ideas came to life with this remix project. Dirty hard bass house, a more complex approach to sound design, and a re-imagining of moving accompaniments to compliment nostalgic melodies. I had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with several accomplished and skilled producers for ONE BEAT ANGEL FFVII and the amount of variety and talent they brought to the table is second to none. I'm excited to share our renditions of this classic and inspiring video game music soundtrack."
