Not skipping a beat, Mazedude helps us ring in the next thousand with a slick ReMix of the previously-unReMixed Sagat stage from classic Street Fighter 2. I'd just like to pontificate briefly, as I recently saw a thread on our forums regarding the most influential game series ever. I'd have to say that, while there are a lot of good candidates, SF2 essentially MADE the fighting genre what it is today. I can't think of a single game that so embodies a genre and acted as such a catalyst for zillions of clones, even well into the 3d arena. I always dug Sagat's ability to do low and high fireballs, in spite of his goofy eyepatch and unfortunate soundalike name-sharing with TV's Bob Saget, also known by his maiden name, Beelzebub.
Mazedude has lent his considerable talents to a reworking of Sagat's theme, which while minimal (like most of the SF2 BGM, a core repeating phrase or two) seemed to work readily with Chris' style. With a strong left-panned piano bass, a great electro-organic percussive vibe, and smooth-as-silk synth solo that carries the melody extensively, this is fairly mellow stuff, but still has an edge to it. There's a brief iteration of the melody by xylophone about halfway through, which offers the listener a good opportunity to appreciate the intricate drum work underneath, and later the synth solo gets some harmony that makes it sound brassier. Also, the cross-panning pads and ambient fx that transpire continuously in the background lend to a floating, liquid feel, and are very well done. All in all, a great take on Sagat's theme (the brother deserved it, with the eye injury and scar and what not), and another in a long line of impressive - and impressively varied - ReMixes from Mazedude. Recommended.
