Yes! Happy, effect-laden, synth techno-pop always brings a smile to my face, especially when it's done with the extra attention to detail that Ziwtra usually brings along for the ride, in the form of processing, effects, programming, and a layered, ornate sound. Final Fantasy Adventure, which is really the first Seiken Densetsu (known in the U.S. as "Secret of Mana"), has a really snappy soundtrack, one I wasn't too familiar with until this mix gave me cause to revisit it. This track in particular has a good, memorable melody that deserved the resuscitation, revisitation, and reinterpretation that Youngjin provides. The ReMixer writes: "The mix is certainly not as "artistic" or "meaningful" as some of my other works (not that any of them are all that profound anyway), but it's got a good beat that might be worth dancing to. It's not "techno" or "dance" or "trance" I suppose; one of my problems is that the music I listen to is so completely different from the music I write--I don't find my genre sensibility all that great. So don't be surprised when the strings share the stage with a shuffly tech beat, next to some whizzing synths. And when the part-slap, part-synth bass gets going while the arpeggiated sawwave gets filtered, and the synth strings are accompanied by blippy whirls around the melody, don't be distraught. Hopefully it just sounds good, even if we don't know what to call it." - I'll just call it good and enjoyable, as genre labels have never been my thing, either. While at times the amount of effects, particularly with the chopping/splicing, can get a little distracting, the piece is very accessible and easy to get into, while not being sonically mundane or simplistic. Love those happy-go-lucky rise+fall arpeggios, too. Recommended.
