Hell Freezes Over! Dewey defeats Truman! Other Headlines! What's the buzz? I'll tell you what's a happenin' - Disco Dan, long a purveyor of fine Capcom (cough, "Mega Man") ReMixes (with noted Mario Paint and Metal Gear exceptions to his name) has finally broken down and ventured into the ever-popular territory of Squaredom with his latest ReMix, from none other than Chrono Trigger. We were running short on Chrono Trigger ReMixes, and it's really underrated and overlooked as a game soundtrack, so I'm glad he took the time to be so . . . obscure (Sarcasm? You're soaking in it.) Dan the man has in fact created a great piece of music here, so ignore my daft ramblings and grab it now. Entering with a tres jazz bit with some soloing over pads, the main, acoustic guitar arpeggio-driven vibe comes in round the first minute with a deep bass, rim shot, and mellow piano. Full drums enter circa minute two, completing the sonic picture with a completely relaxing, transcending groove. After a break with some ambient wind, shakers come in that lend some more forward momentum, along with a simple delayed sine synth. But it's around 4'32 where the transition to double-time actually occurs, and I have to applaud DD for handling this transition seamlessly, using the shakers as a bridging instrument. Lead melody is then covered by a shakuhachi-like wind instrument, and Disco tastefully ends the piece by fading everything but the wonderful string pads and exposes the underlying chord structure, which resolves major for some definite structural closure. All told, this is definitely one of his best works, if not his best - regardless of whether it's from Capcom, Squaresoft, or "Bob's Software Company", it's sonically and architecturally sound, switches from a mellow, free-floating jazz intro to a more defined but equally mellow groove, then to an upbeat piece with more forward motion, all without batting an eyelid or betraying any uncertainty in transitions. Easier said than done. Mr. Cabrera brings something new to the CT ReMix table, which is admittedly already full with some amazing dishes, but I think his definitely deserves your special attention. Highly recommended.
