Branching out a bit - almost any time I would even think of it, the "You Are Not Alone" theme from FF9 would stick in my head for days. There's only one good remedy for this, for me at least, and that's - you guessed it - some lovin' with a ReMix. In this instance, I felt the piece could potentially lend itself to a really fun offbeat-heavy reggae/dub feel, and since those are genres I don't have a lot of experience with, I decided to give it a shot. The result is far from loyal to the original or either genre, but takes the guts of the melody and combines it with some wah guitar offbeat chords, a monoglide sub-bass, a koto, a flute, several varieties of pads and fx, synths, organ, a violin-ish hybrid instrument, a wah clav, and my favorite part, some delayed kick+rimshot percussion work. This was all Motif, and was, like Pachelbel's Ganon, primarily a pet project that I just wanted to hear the results of 'cause the idea intrigued me and I found the melody irresistibly catchy. For some more accurate, techno coverage of this theme check out Orkybash's fairly recent techno rendition. I suppose I just enjoyed working on something that allowed for a bit more syncopation than usual with layered rhythms, and also dug piling on some generous helpings of effects. Unlike most dub I've heard, which is very rooted in repetition without too much structural variance, this doesn't repeat itself too much at all - the "chorus" only gets one appearance (though the "verse" is very similar to a chorus on this track). Wanted to keep it short so I - and hopefully you too - wouldn't get bored. Track name is a fairly nonsensical reference to Underworld for no particular reason. Sounds much better when played loud, on headphones, in either a sedated or inebriated (using your weapon of choice) state. Hope you dig.
