Song of the Week 6: 'Global Empire' by Audix, Tweek, Big Giant Circles
Here's my 6th song of the week from OverClocked ReMix. So far all the songs I've posted have been really good in my book and this one is no different. Audix, Tweek (also known as [TWEEX]), and Big Giant Circles give you one of the best collabs I've heard to date. I love how this piece works, transitioning from orchestral to electronic with epic beats and feel. From the 2005 Xbox game; Jade Empire the song is titled Global Empire. You may listen to the track directly here. I love how this piece just keeps driving forward and the melody fits perfectly. Audix's piano interlude is nearly exactly the same as one of my piano lesson drills, sometimes simple is better and it really connects the orchestral to the electronic with a good city feel. When the electronic bit near the end starts to kick up the synth really drives and the pauses just hammer it in, I love the way you just have complete lack of sound for a few miliseconds, it really lets the perfect execution sink in. Defenitely worth checking out for anyone, good mix of electronic, orchestral, and rock. Incredible stuff.
