Man, I love a good bassline. And from the very first nanosecond of Gecko's latest ReMix, from Sonic CD, he's got one going on. Love the mix title too - this has indeed got a groovalicious vibe that John Travolta could concievably have gotten down to way back in the decade of bad hair and cool pants. There's some interesting panning decisions going on here I'm not too sure about - bass and drums seem a little left-heavy, in particular - but there's some cross-pan delay on a nice synth that widens out the field. We've also got a cool distorted bass synth later on that ends out the track and is killa, some good if not jaw-droppingly realistic saxophone bits, piano, and a very nasal, retro synth lead that pans around a bit and is backed up by some respectable brass. I could dig the retro-factor on this lead - others may not. There's some good snare roll-ins on the drums that help w/ transitions. Biggest hangup I have is the panning, though, as on my headphones everything sounds like it heavily favors the left. Politically, I'm rather okay with that, but sonically it might be too biased :) There are some Beatles tracks I can think of that have bass and drums polarized, so it's not without precedent, it just bugged me a little in this disco/techno context. Other than that, a fun, concise number from Gecko that does achieve a feeling of a night out on the town, cruising under the street lights, like in one of 'dem crazee Mitsubishi ads where the music be playin' and the girl in the passenger seat be movin' her arms around all funny n' stuff. Right - groovy, mellow work from GY.
