After problems were finally fixed with the submitted mp3 file, Marc Star's previous Chrono Cross ReMix was well-received by judges and listeners alike. With this, his sophomore ReMix, he covers Wild Arms in a contemporary pop-ish style. Right from the get-go you get a slick beat and a nice funk guitar riff, establishing both genre and chord progression. It's the main lead entrance at 0'36" - a tasteful, well-programmed and articulated doubled alto flute-ish patch - that lets you know things are gonna click just right. This mix is a great example of how little touches like pitch-bends, vibrato, etc. can change a decent lead into a great one. There's also some good piano soloing, where the heavier kick/snare beat drops out and just the bongo groove is left. Things end a little abruptly, and the mix is only two-and-a-half minutes long - coulda gone on a bit longer, with a good interpretive acoustic guitar solo and perhaps a breakdown on some more elaborate drums atop the formidable bass. Alas, 'twas not to be, but for what it is, this brief Wild Arms pop excursion is a gem - mixed pretty clean, with less reverb than you'd usually hear, and also a distinct pop feel instead of ballad or techno or straight orchestral. Difficult not to loop it at least twice as it's over so soon, which says good things. Nice follow-up mix for Marc Star, hope to see more in the future. Recommended.
