Standby gave us an FF7 mix about a month ago, and now offer up its twin, a breakneck speed jungle-techno twist of a ReMix from Final Fantasy 8. Things begin innocently enough with simple synth pad and delayed blip, building to a hit at 0'40" where the key elastic saw synth pattern comes in (sorta sounds vaguely latin) and a hardcore bass drum gets its thing workin'. It's at 1'10" however, with the introduction of hyper-rainbow-fighting lightning fast breakbeats, and at 1'39" speedy analog gurgle synth to back it up, that you get a real sense of the overall flavor of the ReMix, which is hectic and quick. Now, surprisingly for a piece in this genre and at this BPM, this track is over five minutes long, so you'd expect a significant break and some variety. You got it at 2'40" with kick and offbeat distorted 303 synth, seguing into an even more hyper section that runs till 'round 3'45" when we get back to the afforementioned primary pattern. I'm amazed, but this ain't my favorite genre, and usually any real fast techno that goes for five minutes often feels . . . stretched, but though heavily pattern-based, this worked. Lots of builds, and the main ideas probably could have been communicated in say, three and a half minutes, but it's good, speedy electronica and for those who are into it I figure the extra minute and a half or so will be sorta like a bonus treat. Slammin' shtuff from Standby.
