Waterflame – Runners Mix

Waterflame is a self-taught video game composer and sound designer from Norway, best known for his work in games like “Castle Crashers”, “Castle Storm”, and “Geometry Dash.” He started composing in 2002 at the age of 13, initially uploaded content to Newgrounds before expanding to other platforms such as YouTube and Spotify.

So it’s been awhile since we’ve covered an instrumental on the blog (but it’s for good reason). For us, it’s really challenging to dig through hundreds of submissions and find something that creatively speaks volume without some sort of imagery from the vocalist. With instrumentals, it’s extremely difficult because it has to tell a story in order to keep us interested—but that’s exactly what Waterflame did with his mix for ‘Runners‘.

It’s really not as easy as it looks but nonetheless, Waterflame delivers. Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think and don’t forget to connect with the artist online to stay up to date on any future releases! Enjoy
