Songs of the Week (May 11, 2012)
Five new simfiles for you this week:
First on the line is a v2 for one of FFR’s oldest files. Though Arch0wl‘s original chart for Flight of the Bumblebee has been in the game since 2003, the file has started to… show its age. Thankfully, today experienced stepper Silvuh brings us a much more musically accurate (and noticeably easier) new chart to this iconic song that can be yours for just 1,100 credits.
Next up is the amusingly named UMAD? by xKore, stepped by MarioNintendo. The song’s wide variety of rhythms give lots of possibilities for stepping, and the entire package adds up to be a short but Challenging file indeed.
Our third offering is another short song, joining our first two releases at just a touch over a minute. This song comes from songstowearpantsto, a site that features musician Andrew Huang creating short tunes based on user-submitted requests. The song “Coffin” showcased in today’s release was spawned from the prompt, “Your hip-hop skills are crazy!! Make a crazy beat that shows everyone how sick you are!!!” and well, you have to play the file to see just how that turned out! Credits to YOSHl for this Very Challenging chart, and congratulations to him for his first file in FFR.
Next up is a file that bucks the previous trend of short files soundly- clocking in at 4:29 long, Plasmatextor by Virt has been stepped by someone who is no stranger to chiptunes. With well-known files like Staring at my Spaceship and Mathsma Attack to his name, anyone who can take the heat of a For Masters Only file will definitely want to check out Kommisar‘s latest chart.
Finally, we have Faint Breath by TC_Halogen, with steps by… TC_Halogen. Though this is Halogen’s 11th file in the game, this marks the first time one of his songs has been added. Be sure to give a hand to our new FFR Music Producer, and if you are a Veteran, check out his For Masters Only-rated file while you’re at it! Those who are not Veterans will have to wait one week for this file to be public.
