Here we have some more music from Dune 2000. Just like last week's "The Atreides Gain", this track, called "Under Construction", is also inspired by a track from Dune 2's soundtrack: the Dune 2 track is called "Faithful Warriors" and it remains a favourite of mine from both games.
It starts off with a lone snare drum along with some beautiful harp and choir music, which gives it a majestic, uplifting feel, before it moves into the business side of things at 0:52. It perfectly complements your base building up and growing into a hive of activity, I think that's why I like it in particular (and it's the same for certain tracks in the C&C: Generals soundtrack that evoke the same feel). At 2:19 the track moves into a more melancholic, eerie passage before transitioning to another passage in 3:31 which has a damn cool bassline.
Special thanks to the Video Game Music Preservation Foundation (VGMPF) for extracting this music and creating a wiki to record information on these classic pieces of video game music.
