I spent a whole day just taking drumloops and samples and cutting individual hits and snares and kicks out. It gives the whole thing a kind of "sampled" sound -- a la djshadow or amon tobin. Perhaps the greatest compliment I received on the WIP forums and from a couple other folks is that *they never liked the original* but they enjoy the remix. I hope I can continue to mix in the future, but who knows what will happen when college swallows me up." - this is a more experimental, free-form piece relative to Ziwtra's other mixes, but the same appeal is there. I'm a big fan of his work, so while it's cool that we've got another great piece of music to listen to, it unfortunately sounds like college might prevent future mixage, at least on a regular schedule :( I s'pose that's the way it goes, but we can hope that opportunities present themselves. This is a great arrangement of "Blue Fields" from FF8 - it's not what I would call jazz, but instead the type of hybrid jazz/electronica that the already-cited djshadow, krush, etc.have popularized to some extent. Youngjin pulls it off well - the drum track is elusive and organic, while still having a dirty, urban feel to it, and the mellow pads, moving bass, and heavily delayed, crystalline piano and synth melodies lend a very open, travelling feel. Love the muted trumpet - it's hard to use muted without it sounding artificially thin or too exposed, but it blends in perfectly here. This is an arrangement that shows how a ReMixer's style - in this case, an affinity for layered, ornate, labored-upon drums and a lush overall mix - can transcend genres. Though this is a different genre from previous mixes by Youngjin, you can still very much tell it's him - in a good way. Though we're several months into the semester already, best of luck to all of you who try to balance educational and occupational time constraints with music-related hobbies (composing or listening) - it can be a bitch, I know. Unique, compelling stuff from Ziwtra - hope time allows for more such mixes in the future. Recommended.
