SGX creates a furtive, delicate underwater atmosphere with this ReMix of Spencer Nilsen's Ecco 2 soundtrack, from the redbook/Sega CD version of the game. It later develops more momentum and a very interesting, compelling syncopated drum riff, but begins with a smooth, submarine vibe and takes its time to build from there. Danny took on the role of your friendly neighborhood marine biologist in offering this note along with his mix submission: "Interesting note (sorta): The various sea creature noises you hear in this aren't dolphins. Dolphins make annoying chattering and clicking sounds, and that didn't fit well in this song. The stuff in my mix is mostly samples of a bunch of different types of whales. No dolphins." - so, while you won't find biologically accurate sounds from the game's protagonist, I'd concur that clicking and chattering prolly wouldn't have juxtaposed well. SGX continues to develop as a ReMixer that can create very evocative textures, shimmering and effervescent in their complexity and harmony. In the couple or so larger pushes this arrangement makes, where legato strings are dominant, it really opens up and sounds vast, which is totally appropriate given the game's context and the mix title as well. This is very slick chill music with brains, and particular kudos for developing the drums further into the piece and not letting them stagnate. You don't get a lot of melodic movement or variation, but that would have required extremely capricious conjuring given the original composition. Nilsen's done a lot of redbook audio work in the game music world, and usually capitalizes on being unfettered from the limitations of a chip, so his stuff is already sonically developed, but SGX has taken things in a different direction with great success, capturing the exploratory and epic scope of the Ecco series perfectly. Recommended.
