Album stream Edit

"Ancient Artifact ARGÓS​-​CCCIII" marked a major change in how i created hardcore rave music. from here onwards, i started to take my work much more seriously - not so much emotionally seriously, but seriously in the challenge department. the only way for me to get better at what i do is to attempt to do what is just out of reach for me at that given time. [1]

Trivia Edit

  • UR Way was changed to have a melodic main section rather than the dissonant beginning and ending, as it bares resemblance to CHIMPANZEE TANK by m1dy. [2]
  • Most of the album was written with rhythm game motion and patterns in mind. [3]
  • CCCIII (303) in the album title is a reference to the Roland TB-303, a synthesizer used heavily in house and acid music. [4]
  • The Dopefish section of the trailer uses a clip from Happy by Hestu Procyon, a video of a Second Life creation by Ren. [5] [6]
  • The Errorblasterz section of the trailer uses footage of Beauty Pagent, a unreleased sidescroller shmup game by Ren. [7]
