I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't know!

Can anyone who voted for "yes" explain what this thread is about?

...please?

I'm wondering whether this is an extension of the bizarre (yet funny) conversation I got mixed up in somewhere on the boards where I ended up suggesting playing TR with a DDR-style dance mat. I can't remember if it was LaraCroftRox that I said it to though :scratch:

That is a bizarre idea! Me like-y; but now I don't know if I'm more or less confused about this thread! :lol:

I think I was involved in a similar conversation... possibly in a different thread. :whistle:


Started looking into what "Dance Raider" is. Haven't gotten that far, but it appears to be music from Marcus Trogen (a Tomb Raider fan... he was active on these forums at one point)... the music is inspired by Tomb Raider games.

Here's a link (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/soundtrack/marcus_trogen_01.html) of some of Marcus Trogen's work...
And here a link (http://www.laracroftonline.com/goodies/detail.php?id=58)to a page where you can download the "dance raider" collection.

Description:
Who hasn't heard of Marcus Trogen in the Tomb Raider Community. For years now he has been well known for his Dance Raider Series.

Never heard of him. Or his music.

Cheers for the links RG, haven't listened to the music though, I just get the sense it's all gonna be bass-riddled dance music that grates like hell.

I think GoranAgar likes some of Marcus' work (his user name on these forums is "Marcus T" I think... not sure how often he visits).

I recognise the username, have to admit I haven't noticed him on the boards in a while.

I remember hearing a song by him... was it "I'll be your angel"?

Or was that someone else?

sorry for the confusion.
Dance Raider is remixes of the TR theme songs, with Lara and occasionally larson for some reason saying stuff in it. i thought most people have heard of it.... hehe, sorry. You can download it from LaraCroftOnline.com if anyone wants to listen. :thumbsup:

That's me :) I have periods when I tend to drop in ;) As for confusion regarding my identity - what/who I am and regarding the whole "Dance Raider" thing - here is a good place (http://www.tombraiderlive.com/music/marcustrogen/) - with some information. There's also
information here (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/marcustrogen/), or google my name. Or simply ask, I'd be happy to answer any questions not covered by any of those places :) As for the petition - that's most flattering. We'll see ;)

Well, so far there have been no votes for "no". has been way more votes for yes than for no...

No problem :) And hey, don't worry about it :) I haven't been as active on the Tomb Raider scene lately as I was back in the day, so I totally understand that there are people who may not be aware ;) - and it's absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about :)

Those of you who are curious about Dance Raider, the first song I ever released online was called that - became rather popular at the time, so much that I started releasing more songs based on the TR concept - in different styles - and my music has grown and evolved over the years. And, since the whole Dance Raider thing became popular, (and continues to be to this day), it came out in 5 different versions. Actually 6 (I based one of the songs on the first Gameboy Color version of Tomb Raider - but it was not titled with a "chronological number").




Cheers for the links RG, haven't listened to the music though, I just get the sense it's all gonna be bass-riddled dance music that grates like hell.
Not necessarily ;) I've done quite a variety of styles...


(right click to save the songs)

* The Lady (http://www.faithfulvibes.com/media/The_Lady.mp3), one of the very first Tomb Raider songs I ever released. Jazz, not dance ;)

* Celtic Adventure (http://www.faithfulvibes.com/media/Celtic_Adventure.mp3), an orchestral piece, created around the time Last Artefact (the add on to TR3) was released.

* Land of Sand III (http://www.faithfulvibes.com/media/Land_of_Sand_III.mp3), a middle eastern influenced tune, based on the jeep/end credit theme of TR: Last Revelation.

* Here's a music video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMkRkkWo_8k) I made of one of my songs, "The Old Man", which is based on Lara's butler, Winston. Be warned! ;)

* Wild Waves Whisper (http://www.faithfulvibes.com/media/Wild_Waves_Whisper.mp3), a tune based on a poem by the same name, written by an online friend. This also happen to be one of the first tunes I ever used lyrics for (apart from the above mentioned video), and a bit of an experiment at such. The "lyrics" rather blends in with the music, so if anyone is curious as to the words, I'd be happy to post them. It's just to give an example of one of the styles I've been doing :)


If you guys are curious, here are
Dance Raider: Gameboy Edition (http://www.faithfulvibes.com/media/Dance_Raider_Gameboy_Edition.mp3), the mentioned Gameboy tune, where I actually implemented sounds from the actual Gameboy game :)
Dance Raider 5 (http://www.faithfulvibes.com/media/Dance_Raider_5.mp3), the last song in the "series". Released in the summer of 2004.
Dance Raider 4 (http://www.faithfulvibes.com/media/Dance_Raider_4.mp3), its predecessor, released about a year earlier.

There are several other tracks too, but these may give some insight as to who I am and what kind of stuff I do :)




Marcus, are you planning on making a Dance Raider 6? :p
Who knows... I guess time will tell ;)

In addition to my above mentioned history, I've also just recently launched my own personal project (http://www.faithfulvibes.com), which is indipendent from my TR fanbased material, and something I've been focusing on lately. Would love to hear what you guys think. Feel free to add yourselves to that page if you have your own profile :)
