"Come to Bob's piiiiizaa!"
Dale North gives us some very quirky, creative, and musical mixage of a nature you wouldn't expect from Shenmue. Well, unless you played it and specifically remember Bob's Pizza and the brief music associated with it. Dale's taken what little was there and expanded on it with a piece that's largely original but plays off the theme and even features custom English replacements for the Japanese vocals. Dale didn't know exactly what they were saying, so he went with a jazzy-white-guy-chorus doing "Come to Bob's Pizza" that's very kitsch and fits in well. Otherwise the piece is a brief foray into what I would actually classify as good smooth jazz. Electric piano is overpowering, heavy on the tine, and uber-heavy on the stereo tremolo, beats are good and gradually develop through layering, and there's even some string stabs and a crystal clear monoglide lead that come in as well. We don't have much if any music on the site that sounds like this - it's quirky, it's unique, it covers music that (in all likelihood) only Dale would cover, and though it's the only piece from Mr. North I've heard in the genre, it shows a pretty deep understanding of the common ingredients and construction. Take a break from the electronica and orchestral a bit, relax, put together a nice vodka Red Bull (assuming you're of legal age and have the affinity - see also Johnnie Walker), and chill to the flow. Of course, given the length, you may want to loop it a few times, and don't be surprised if afterwards you've got the sudden craving for a large pizza with double extra cheese. A recommended respite.
