Random’s Black Materia: Remixes Scheduled for Release on Jan 31st

Especially since we’ve called Black Materia one of the best Final Fantasy VII tributes out there, there should be no wonder that we’re huge fans of Phoenix-based rapper Random, also known as Mega Ran. Featuring additional guests, rearranged songs, and new exclusive content, Random’s Black Materia: Remixes is scheduled to be released on January 31st.

Especially since we’ve called Black Materia one of the best Final Fantasy VII tributes out there, there should be no wonder that we’re huge fans of Phoenix-based rapper Random. Yes, we’ve probably spoken about him multiple times to the point of rambling like a prepubescent girl would her favorite movie star, but can you blame us? Random’s wonderful work on Black Materia shows that he can still appeal to a universal audience outside of the video game community, which may be seen as a great feat when discussing the inclusivity of the general public in such a tight-knit community.

Speaking of Black Materia, you’re in for a delicious treat. A full year after the original album’s release, Random’s Black Materia: Remixes featuring additional guests, rearranged songs, and exclusive remastered content is scheduled to be made available next Tuesday, January 31st. All production has been once again handled by Lost Perception, in addition to DJ DN3, and mixing and mastering by K-Murdock. There are at least three all-new tracks, with one featuring Adam Warrock. While you preview one of Random’s newest songs from the upcoming Remixes album below, we suggest that you pre-order Black Materia: The Remixes on Bandcamp, obtainable for a mere five dollars.
