Managing to remember to update here after that film fest slip up, surprisingly my sleep schedule has remained largely intact. The upload has been replaced by an even longer wait now though, as you read this I'm still downloading the PC version of GTA V at some occasionally abysmal speeds. Like I said before tho, it's given me a chance to go digging for potential custom soundtracks and with that, let's get stuck in.

Icarus return with another tune set for the summer. Though unlike Cassia this one's not for the mid-day get togethers, it's for the 9PM just before the sun goes down and you're going out moments. That bassline's been rattling my shelves all day, and I'm a sucker for a 2-step beat that reminds me of my garage listenings as a youth. Should be a nice addition to the streets of LS.

Returned to Stench's 2015 release for the first time in a while to look for soundtrack ammo and I wasn't left wanting. Even more 2-step shenanigans here, with Stench's trademark bass at work behind it. Surprised I missed this one out in my review of the thing, it's a solid addition for sure.

And while we're on the subject of garage and my youth, let's not neglect to mention one of the best garage tunes of all time that was actually already included on a GTA soundtrack. The original track is fine sure, there are better songs on the Sneaker Pimp's Becoming X though, but this remix is a cult classic that has earned it's reputation. That bassline is still savage nearly 17 years later.
