Dimi Kaye Do you remember those 90s FMV detective adventure games? (I'm looking at you Tex Murphy)

Well, Antioch, even though an ost for a different game, could easily belong on one of them. Classic 80s synthwave vibes throughout, melodies dipped in atmosphere and a beautiful song to boot.

Get this. Favorite track: Scarlet Bay (feat. Lara Ausensi).

Unused/Rejected music score for the game Antioch.

Unfortunately this soundtrack was not to be used in the game. However, the music is here for you to listen to, which was finished back in 2017.

This was one of the few times I was asked to compose a synthwavey/retro, electronic score in the vain of the 80s. It was something I was quite excited about because I grew up in the 80s/90s, with the music from those eras.

The soundtrack is mainly recorded using vintage, analog gear like the Ensoniq ESQ-1, Oberheim Matrix 1000, Yamaha SY-2 and Korg MS-10 using vintage fx like the Lexion PCM-70 and Roland RE-501. Some software synths were also used like Synth1, PG-8X and TAL U-NO-LX.

Special thanks to: Lara Ausensi, my family, Aaron Marshall, Mark Webber (aka Neon Vandal), Arron C. (aka Mono Memory) and Chris Stilz (aka Stilz).

Scarlet Bay lyrics:

Remember when we went away
We took the car and went to Scarlet Bay
I wish we had a second chance
It was always meant to be

A yearning grew inside of me
For the city that would set me free
I didn't mean to hurt you (but I left you)
It was always meant to be

I'll be in Antioch (3x)

The city of eternal night
The kind of place where party meets the crime
The survival of the fittest
It's their only way of life

I'll be in Antioch (3x)

I'll be in Antioch (3x)
