Protricity actually submitted this a long time ago, but placed it on a server that was unavailable for awhile (Rob's vacation, yo) - glad to finally get it, as it's a synthfest with guitar, choir, and a general aura of electro-funkitude. It's worth the download JUST for the R2D2 breakdown at 2'25", which really does conjure images of tha little droid getting jiggy with his funky self and perhaps trying to lay down a mean rap. Very precise control and programming on filtered synth pads (love the quick release effect / gating) and undulating, hefty synth bass. There's a fake ending and a clear break into a separate section that the piece ends on, as well. Dig the rapid fire distorted drum break, and both endings are working for me. Makes me think of more dramatic source material than Earthworm Jim 2 - more like a swordfight or getaway chase or something - but when things are polished and presented with style, I ain't complaining. Good stuff, and not exactly what one would have expected given the title and game, from Mr. Asulin. Recommended.

Not my favorite from Prot, but this one's got its charms nonetheless :-)

The arrangement's just as contagious as the production, whether it makes short melodic hops or glides up and down the scales like an overture. It pulses with life every step of the way, so even the lone mutating bass at 1:43, the thick drumwork at 2:19, and the false ending feel like welcome transitions. After that last bit, the final stretch is packed with shiny, commanding synths, but the elastic leitmotif haunts the background in the form of whirls, grinds, and other manipulations.
Groovy, as Jim would say.

This would be really great chilling music, but that treble end keeps drawing me in, making it a little more active listening. Very interesting tactic though.
Ending was good as well. Overall a gem from the era of tracks it came from.

The tempo to this one is a tad perfect, and it just gets better and better, to a great conclusion.

Rock on! This is a little piece of techno heaven. Like tasty pie.
(OK, so that was a pretty stupid analogy.)
Nevertheless, the sheer variety and and quality consistent throughout this piece definitely made it a winner.
