Interesting. Sometimes people say they can spot my ReMixes from a mile away - esp. the older ones - which I don't really take as an insult or a compliment. I feel that I vary genre / game enough to keep things interesting, at least for me. When I heard this latest submission from Beatdrop, our first for Brave Fencer Musashi, I was a little surprised, because, although it's electronica, for some reason it didn't sound like most of his other mixes to me. Go figure. This is straightforward upbeat techno of a semi-80's nature, with a strong downbeat and bouncy, happy bass and chords. The highlight element is the comp synth, with a nice delay and wandering stereo panning that intros the track and remains key throughout. The bass has a strong presence, playing off the drums. Note the cool introduction of breakbeats and some of the fx at the 2'11" transition, and the simple but perfect ending. The original is catchy and that catchiness is certainly magnified under the techno-pop lens that Beatdrop provides us. My only hesitation is that the piece doesn't take many sonic risks - the arrangement is there, but I would like to have seen more variety on the instruments, or some audio processing. I only expect that because Beatdrop has set a high benchmark for himself and in that specific arena this piece may fall short of some of his other works. But overall, a satisfying effort that, while it may not present a variety of timbres and textures, implements those it does with conviction and style. Recommended.
