You have to hand it to SNK: for quite some time now, they've been updating the King of Fighters series, and unlike the sometimes VERY trivial modifications Capcom would make in christening a new version of Street Fighter 2, they've added new characters, backgrounds, music, and moves. Of course, I'd still take the mechanics of the SF Alpha series (4? Please??) over KoF any day of the week and twice on Sunday, but it's impressive nonetheless. Gecko Yamori gives us our first ReMix from KOF2K, a hard-edged techno arrangement that merges in some phased, delayed, distorted, mean electric guitar for extra punch. Introing light and atmospheric, with a sustained chord, then bass drop, a fuzzy synth line soon fades in. Guitar builds up to 0'58", where the main drum groove comes in and synths take over the spotlight. The lead synth actually sounds like a NES timbre, adding a bit of a retro feel atop the decidedly un-retro backdrop. There's an extended section with lots of development, including nice use of a solid choir patch, until we get the main melody again towards the end. Though I've always dug KoF tunes, I've always seen them as difficult to arrange while maintaining a sense of development, ending up somewhere markedly different from where things began, but that's what GY has done. Though this mix relies on delay effects perhaps a bit too much to fill up space, it's damn fun stuff: biting, heavy, and definitely a solid work. ReMix-starved SNK-fans shouldn't need more than that, but I'd recommend this to all who're looking for some well-constructed electronica. Good stuff.
