Happythanks! Thanksgiving ain't exactly the biggest and best holiday, fine, but it's a time to see family & friends, have good eats, and get all your xmas shopping done in a mad rush of hectic consumerism - and what could be more fun than that? Plus, unless my family has let me down, free alcohol and coconut shrimp should be involved this go-round, so I'm looking forward to it. Right then - on we go: I can never get enough of the first stage Space Harrier music - like chocolate, air, and Escaflowne, I doubt I'll ever tire of it. I admit and confess to the bias, at least, but don't think it would have affected this particular rendition's posting here at OC ReMix. d0d0 lends his ears and talents to an electro ReMix that's part techno-industrial, part 80's synth-pop, and all fun. The intro is a minor-key, dark arrangement that in and of itself is a peculiar reworking of the theme, featuring an interesting sample (something about a blow job - didn't get the reference, myself. d0d0? Anyone?) - but this more sinister tone lifts and the peppy (fruity?) major-key joy starts fading in around 0'40". Beat is frenetic late 80's techno, almost passable as upbeat old skool rap if it were on a cheesy 808 (these are more 909 drums), with an octave synth bass underneath, some great subtle synth rhythms, floating pads and ambient effects all over the stereo spectrum that give it that "spaced" feel (Houston, we have a mix name), and later on some strings on an original harmony that works nicely. Ending is abrupt and leaves you with a disonant delay, but I kinda thought that was effective. Again, I confess my bias for the theme, but this is a strong arrangement that fits in well with previous efforts. The intro in particular goes the extra mile and packs in several unorthodox musical ideas that add to the whole. Enjoy your Thanksgiving and get jiggy with the egg nog, where applicable - if all goes well and I'm at least partially sober, expect two more (excellent) ReMixes sometime this evening. In the meantime, check out d0d0's latest superb take on a superb theme. Recommended.
