Final Fantasy has some of the most-remixed music on the entire Internet. It's a powerful testament to the quality of Nobuo Uematsu's work on the series over the years.
In case you missed it, popular remix site OverClocked ReMix put out a rather fabulous Final Fantasy VI-inspired album recently, but on the off-chance that you're hungry for more, a UK producer named Mykah has been working hard on an album inspired by Final Fantasy VI, VII and VIII in collaboration with the team of electronic musicians at GameChops.
The result is Triple Triad, an officially-licensed twelve-track album that incorporates a variety of the three games' "greatest hits" and reimagines them in a number of different styles, ranging from Latin dancehall to drum 'n' bass, house and dubstep.
I haven't listened to the album all the way through myself yet, but early impressions are pretty solid. Each track blends authentically retro-style synth and chiptune sounds with modern beats and breaks to produce something that captures the feeling of the original pieces while making them eminently suitable for blasting through a bass-heavy sound system.
As is seemingly the norm for releases of this type these days, you can listen to the entire album in its entirety before you purchase by streaming it from GameChops' site. Purchasing your own copy will set you back $8 (or more if you desire) for the digital version; $10 (or more) for a physical copy, which also includes digital copies of all the tracks while you wait for the CD to arrive.
