Daedelus - Clouds
Taking on the role of making music for a computer game can be quite a challenge but also memorable when done right. Who can remember the classic techno soundtrack to 'Streets Of Rage 2' in the early 90's that pumped continuously in the background as you battled through corrupted streets to get ever closer to Mr X on your Megadrive? Or the bright and playful background music to Sonic? Collecting rings wouldn't have been half the fun. Although the games today are probably not as good as they used to be back then electronic veteran Daedelus shows that isn't necessarily the case with the music. 'Clouds' is one of the many nice down tempo tracks he created for the Microsoft Windows game 'Nidhogg' soundtrack which is available when purchasing the game. Hopefully this opens the door for more of our favourite producers to start dabbling in the computer game world. Enjoy below.
