Chinese Man - Indi Groove -- somewhere around the second minute (and again around 3 and half), it turns into some kind of meeting point between asian strings, southern fiddle, and fairly heavy beats.

Chinese Man (apparently a french trip-hop group, now that I actually check) has a decently large discography and they go just... all over the place in terms of style. Lots of rap/hiphop, but also a decent amount of off the wall fusion work. I'm not huge on everything they do, but the variety of it soothes my soul.

e: World needs more disney dubstep, or whatever the hell this is.

Never played Emperor: Battle for Dune. But holy shit, the House Ordos sound track almost makes me want to go through the effort: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOmX6HmGp0U

Wait. I was completely unaware that Dune II had sequels. Good to learn this some 20 years after their release.

Not one but two sequels. The guys who did Command & Conquer did the Dune II sequels, and it shows as the games steadily start to look more like C&C. The sequels get a graphical revamp and some QoL changes over Dune 2. I never played them because I spent so much time playing Dune 2 that the sequels just didn't work for me. It was the mid to late 90s when games were going through that sorta "high fidelity" phase with graphics and lots of FMV, and I dunno, it just never quite connected with me the way the old pixel art games did.

But apparently they're beloved by many.

Never liked C&C, but played tons of Dune II.

Ugh, this was a horrid time and by the end of the 90s I'd lost my interest in computer games (stopped pretty much playing for over ten years). Especially the low-quality and badly acted videos were a huge turn-off (not to mention the lack of substance in games). In some ways this is still going on with emphasis being on graphics in games, though it doesn't seem as bad, but maybe I'm just finally getting used to it and accepting the fact that there's no going back.

Not a fan of metal/metal-related music in general, but dungeon synth is pretty good at capturing its otherness while doing away with most of the noise. What's left is a refreshingly contemplative ambience— right up my alley!

Maybe a bit too good a sound quality for my dungeon synth tastes. It's a genre that needs that noisy, slightly distorted tape sound and some instruments (from a casio or a tracker) that are played off-beat, with melodies like ones from a bad old videogame tune, imho.

But anyway, your link sounded quite nice.  :)

Finally listened to... anything... Hazbin Hotel related (I've been watching Helluva' Boss and its stuff muted), and well. It's fairly nice? Fairly nice. Between it and this, part of me's kinda' jonsing for more, uh. More literal? Devil's music.

... just not metal junk, stuff just makes me sleepy these days.
