Everybody was Kung-Fu Fighting! Joel Bird, alias Jivemaster, wants to fill your Christmas with some chop-suey Battletoads and Double Dragon action, and I suggest you let him. The Australian Master of Jive gives OCR our first ReMix from this clashing of two popular franchises in the early 90's, and it's a departure from his usual strong downbeat electronica. Starting with a somewhat campy but cool tribute to Kung-Fu scores of yore, there's a funky beat and lots o' lo-bitrate percussion samples going on. The "real" ReMix bares little resemblance to its intro, however, entering at 0'40" with some rock drums, meaty electric guitar, and electric bass. This is the first time JM has so decidedly emphasized guitar in one of his ReMixes, and I'm happy to say he pulls it off. Things break to a synth solo 'round 1'40", entering back in with what could be mistaken for AC/DC by an unknowing listener (reminds me a little of their style), then ending on guitar with a bend down. Overall, a short mix, with a sort of dual personality between the intro and the rest, but good, fun stuff, in the spirit of both the game and Kung-Fu flicks, and a sweet departure for Mr. Bird who shows us some guitar and genre skills simultaneously. Recommended.
