Both fanbases combined to make Bthe release one of the most popular nerdcore albums released to date which is, perhaps, why Random chose to revisit the project by releasing Black Materia: The Remixes. With the addition of six new tracks and the collaborative talents of several friends from within the nerdcore and mainstream hip hop scenes , Random has focused and refined the sound of Black Materia and, in the process, created an entirely new album. The end result is a synthesis of sound that improves on the formidable original in most every way.
The two later worked together on many titles at the company, most notably in the Final Fantasy series. After nearly two decades with Square, Uematsu left in to create his own production company, which included the Dog Ear Records music label. He has since composed music as a freelancer for other games, including ones developed by Square Enix and Sakaguchi's development studio, Mistwalker. Many soundtracks and arranged albums of Uematsu's game scores have been released. Pieces from his video game works have been performed in various Final Fantasy concerts ,   where he has worked with Grammy Award —winning conductor Arnie Roth on several of these performances.
