The whole ‘getting dance producers to remix soundtracks‘ trend is not one I’m awfully fond of. Things like Siriusmo remixing Tekken just don’t really do it for me. I don’t think it makes that much sense. And I have to say, when I saw the remix roster for the Halo 4 soundtrack I wasn’t all that interested (A7V1N Ri5K, Sander van something etc) but I did notice that Gui Boratto did one and that actually does make a fair bit of sense, as he has sound that really sounds quite soundtrack-esque at times.
And, with no hint of irony, his take on ‘Awakening’ sounds quite epic and is geniuenly fantastic. You can also pretend you are James Bond whilst you listen to it waiting for the bus, if you want. I totally didn’t do that.
そして実際彼の ’Awakening’ はかなーり素敵でした。もしもJames Bond にいつかなりたい! なんて思ってるあなた。これを聞きながらバスなんか待ったりしてみたら結構ハマるようなリミックスですよ。(やりたい人だけどうぞ)

There is also some kind of Halo 4 Remix competition. You can win things (we aren’t that interested in posting entries though..).
