Choicest VGM - VGM #140 - The Ur-Quan Masters - Hyperspace - Light Years Away

Composed by: Riku Nuottajarvi
Remixed by: Jouni Airaksinen

Okay I cheated a bit with this remix. Apparently, this isn't one of the tracks that features in the Ur-Quan Masters as that would be Riku Nuottajarvi's remix of his own work titled "Hyperspace - Across the Galaxy". Nuottajarvi's remix is pretty choice and definitely has a jazzy, lounge feel to it but I reckon Jouni Airaksinen's remix which is included as additional music is a better fit - mainly because it sounds similar to the original yet it manages to make the track sound even more retro by adopting some 80s samples such as synth clapping noises. The original Hyperspace tune is probably one of the most memorable and popular of Star Control 2's tunes since it gets played every time your ship enters hyperspace (funny that!).

Special thanks to The Precursors for remixing the classic Star Control II tracks and making them available for download.
