Materia Collective is pleased to present *MATERIA: Final Fantasy VII Remixed*, a massive five-disc remix project celebrating the announcement of Square Enix's highly-anticipated remake of one of the most beloved role-playing games of all time, Final Fantasy VII. Following in the spirit of other community remix projects such as those from OverClocked ReMix, Zelda Reorchestrated, and others, Materia Collective has gathered nearly 200 musicians from around the globe, including renowned remixers, performers, YouTube personalities, and composers working in the videogame industry to pay tribute to Nobuo Uematsu's timeless soundtrack.
"*MATERIA: Final Fantasy VII Remixed* is the album we have always wanted to exist," comments album producer and Materia Collective founder Sebastian Wolff. "It is more than a cover album; it is a collection of individual musical tributes from nearly 200 artists, collaborating to create a massive five-disc tribute to one of the most beloved games and soundtracks of all time."
To this day, *Final Fantasy VII* remains a fan favorite for its in-depth story, wide cast of characters, and its memorable soundtrack. Listeners will enjoy every track from Final Fantasy VII remixed, arranged, and re-imagined across a variety of genres, including the cinematic and beautiful "Main Theme from Final Fantasy VII," the tribal "Cosmo Canyon," the laid back "Costa del Sol," the heartbreaking "Aerith's Theme," and the epic final battle theme, "One-Winged Angel" along with all the rest. Featured artists include composers Will Roget, II (Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris), Jeff Ball (TimeSpinner), Dale North (Dragon Fantasy Book II), Francisco Cerda and John Robert Matz (Gunpoint), Kyle Landry, Smooth McGroove, Laura Intravia, String Player Gamer, Doug Perry, Kristin Naigus, Rozen, Videri String Quartet, Triforce Quartet and many more.
