Protricity expands his sound significantly with this Age of Empires ReMix, our first from the popular series. The sheer definition of the instruments - their presence & power - in the intro alone bodes well for the rest of the piece. Loads of ethnic percussion, a variety of plucked, bowed, picked, and wind instruments can't help but lend an otherwordly, global mystique to this very transitive arrangement. The title suggests passing through various lands, perhaps sharing one or two instruments in common but having a different overall musical culture / vibe. Not to be too retentive, but most of this doesn't strike me as all that "African" - I'd say our world-weary traveler unwittingly wanders off the continent into the far east for a quick snack a couple times - but there's chock full o' pitched and unpitched percussion to give Mr. Asulin's title some weight, amongst other elements. I particularly liked the intro here - it's very broad and expansive, hinting at possibilities and creating the right atmosphere for pre-safari thoughts of potential wonders lying ahead. Or maybe I've just stopped on the Discovery Channel one too many times whilst channel-surfing :) Another kudos would be the intonation and articulation - this isn't the type of "world music" that just uses exotic instruments in an otherwise Western compositional context - Prot has some legit shtuffs going on, which results in a culturally flavored ReMix the likes of which is pretty unique to OCR and a well-appreciated deviation. Recommended.
