Okay, hope this don't piss anyone off - I know it follows pretty hot on the heels of my last mix, but for a couple reasons I probably won't be doing anything else for a little while, and this sort of happened by accident. My first Sonic mix, from the first Sonic. This is also, unless someone knows something I don't, the first mix that basically was inspired by an ad for Coors. That's right, the beer. Story goes something like this - I really dug that ad that Coors ran with Dr. Dre jamming on an Akai MPC in an airplane awhile back, esp. the bassline - it was HUGE. It could serve as an audio example for the 'phat' entry in your multimedia dictionary of choice. So I sat down at my Motif recently, and out of boredom wanted to see how close I could come to recreating a sound like that. I took an already deep synth bass, piled on the cutoff and resonance modulations on a simple riff I came up with, and fed that through a wah filter. Presto - instant Coors ad. Fiddled some more, and had the framework for a piece. Decided I'd try to turn it into something half decent - didn't wanna spend a lot of time, you know, just something fun. If the result was postable, I'd post it, if it wasn't, it'd go in the recycle bin. While what I ended up with has its fair share of deficiencies, it's fun in spirit, and the bassline came out exactly like I wanted. As Masato Nakamura is a bass player, and I was essentially writing an entirely new bassline for his track and making it the emphasis, this was important to me. So, you get a funk diddy, with acoustic drums, monstah wah bass, some pads that stay out of the way but add depth, some electric piano (also wah'd), some lead triangle synth, a funky resonant clav that acts almost like a second bass, an organ with a nice thick release, and - just for the damn hell of it - a shamisen. Who knows what bizarre use for ethnic instruments lies in the hearts of men? The pretzel knows. Anyway, things start with a mellow, melancholy version of the verse and then slide into funkland. This was mostly meant as a fun excursion, so I won't go into much more detail. I do like how the genre fit the source material, which I always wanted to cover but was never sure how. I don't plan on treading into Jivemaster, Malcos, or countless other's territory who have ReMixed songs from the Sonic series to great success too often in the future, but it felt good to cover something, as I did play almost all of these games - even Knuckles Chaotix, back when I had my 32x - and I always dug the music.
