Even though Sony have closed WipEout developer Studio Liverpool down that hasn’t stopped the WipEout and WipEout 2097 composer CoLD SToRAGE from finally remastering his works.
After high demand from WipEout fans Tim Wright (aka Cold Storage) has finally bowed to fan pressure and remastered his original soundtrack – although we’re sure he probably wanted to do it anyway.
Released on Bandcamp for just £6.99, you can pick up Slipstream [volume one] in MP3 or lossless FLAC format.
“After much cajoling and badgering I finally set some time aside and knuckled down to re-mixing ALL my WipEout tracks…,” writes Wright.
“SLIPSTREAM Volume One features 64 bit digital re-mix / re-masters of my tracks from WipEout and WipEout 2097. Each track has been painstakingly E.Q.’d, compressed and spatially enhanced for the best possible listening experience. It’s been a long time coming – I hope you enjoy!”
Tim then teased that a second volume was on the way – presumably featuring the other tracks that hadn’t been given the remastering treatment: “Oh, and Volume Two is in the works. ;O)”
Seeing as we absolutely love WipEout we suggest that you go away and grab this if you like great music, electronica or WipEout.
