Find the Best of Both Worlds

For Battle of the Bits Outrun Chillwave botb-outrun-artwork

The point of the contest was to make a chillwave (80s synth retro) track with some sort of inspiration from Sega’s mid-80s arcade racing classic. There were many good and surprising results throughout.

It is my experience and understanding that sounds many people attribute to synthesizers in that period weren’t really synthesizers at all, so I tried to use as few as possible.

Vocal by Momone Momo, with additional vocals by Sekka Yufu, voicebanks for the UTAU singing speech synthesizer.

両端世界のドライヴ、 
海と海からへ、 
峡谷からスピードで、 
分野から急いで

Ryōtan sekai no doraivu 
Umi to umi kara e 
Kyōkoku kara supīdo de 
Bun’ya kara isoide

We’ll find the best of both worlds tonight 
Let’s find the best of both worlds tonight
