"Dance Raider 4 ? Might not come as a surprise, in the making, and I believe Iíve already told a few. But most people might raise an eyebrow at this.

What makes this stand apart from the rest? Aha! *snaps his finger* Expect to surprised. A new beat, a totally new sound, and new samples. Not the regular Dance Raider I can assure you. Iím reaching out beyond the horizons with this tune, and with the help of the additional equipment Iíve acquired, I am proud to say that this is going to be my crowning achievement, without a doubt! Dance Raider has never sounded more professional as it does now. Expect to be knocked out of your chairs ladies and gentlemen, Mr Dance Raider has put on his dancing shoes again! *devlish grin*"

Marcus posted this on 7/17/01, so it was a long time coming, but guess what, I just got a letter from him confirming it's release date! :D
It will be a few months yet, but he's working on it.
I know you've heard it before, but it will definitely be out soon. :cool:

Cool, I hope it will be better than the other stuff, the rest is just a little too similar to the game music for my taste, it's not 'bad', just not original enough.

And I'm surprised he hasn't kept people up to date with what's happening with his music, it kind of hints at a lack of interest in the people who the music is aimed at, and a good way for them to lose interest.

So a hint, keep people up to date! No news since december isn't good PR.

I just got another E-mail from him explaining he had personal things to deal with.
Mostly online trivial matters.

In any case, here's a picture for you he thinks might give this project a little push.

I'm all a tingle as well. :D
This should please you very much.
Last year, he told me how different this one will be.
I guess it's a good thing the game will be delayed until April so the song can come out when the game does.
It will have AOD inspired background sounds.
The rythm will be very dark and somewhat mysterious like the game.

Why, thanks for posting this heads up New-Raider http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif That pasted text from 7/17/01 was indeed some time ago, and I can tell you that while I've been working on the tune, it has undergone quite a few turns since that time, a few of which can be followed back on earlier posted inputs in the journal. I have an input there about returning to original roots with the tune. It didn't feel like "Dance Raider", nonentheless, a new, more professional feel (as I describe in the input from -01) is in this tune, created by a lot of additional equipment I didn't have at the time I released DR3. That is of course, open to debate when the tune is released ;)

Speaking of updates, true as you say Immortal, I haven't been updating on what's been happening with my music since December, which is partly because there has been no progress in musical terms since then, mainly because I've had some personal issues to settle. The journal is partly connected to this issue. I believe it's been put to rest for now, and I'm finally able to start focusing again. I have also contemplated whether to keep the journal, or move it to a new location, but for now, it stays where it is.

A few corrections to this post tho:

* "It will be a few months yet, but he's working on it." It will be a lot sooner than that. The tune itself is perhaps a week from being completed, and the release of it should hopefully not be too far away.

* "It will have AOD inspired background sounds. The rythm will be very dark and somewhat mysterious like the game." That would relate to a possible 'Dance Raider 5' as I would have to play AOD to have that influence. This tune has a heavy beat, more instrumental sounds implemented than the other DR tunes, but influences from the original series. A goodbye to the old Lara, and a welcome to the new.

To be released very soon... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
