Totally . . . pure . . . fun.
At least, that's what *I* had making this mix. In what was probably the most enjoyable mix-creation process since I busted out the falsetto Hillbilly scat in ye olde Bubble Bobble mix, I finally got around to covering what I consider to be one of the best master system themes, "Inside Planet" from Zillion by the one and only 'Bo'. Man, do I love this guy's work. This specific track has a moving bassline that really reminded me of roadhouse rock/blues, the type of thing The Doors would have done a great cover of (sans psychedelic lyrics about blue busses and crystal ships). I did throw in a spacy synth lead, but the rest is acoustic drums (unquantized, of course), a dirty electric bass, electric piano, and a double-distorted electric guitar, and stays pretty true to the genre I was shooting for, which hadn't really been covered here at OCR. Surgeon Pretzel's Warning: DEFINITELY go for the insanely high volume levels on this one, preferably on a good set of headphones. In contrast to my previous mix, there wasn't much restraint involved in this one (see guitar solo at 1'27" for example ^^ ) and it was done entirely on a Yamaha Motif, without soft synths or Nuendo. Like my previous mix, however, this stems out of a true love and nostalgia for the source material and a desire to expose more people to it - Bo's tunes might never attain the popularity of all those lovely SNES / Playstation composers, which is a shame, but I feel like I've done my part to help address that - at least for this song. Hope you enjoy, and if you've got some spare time grab an SMS emulator and try this unique game out - a very different experience.
One last thing - I'd like to dedicate this track to Cotmm, Ginnsu, Rob, Jivemaster, Orkybash, and Joe Redifer for completing the initial 600+ reviews for our new feedback system. Kudos to youdos.
Update: Brian Kosich writes in to note that Zillion the anime was actually made after the game as a marketing thing.
