If you were around arcades in the era, you couldn't help but notice the classic shooter Darius, as it was one of the first games to use multiple monitors for a pretty mammoth horizontally-scrolling playing field. The Coop gives us our first ReMix from the seminal 80's classic, which spurned several sequels bearing the "gaiden" suffix. This has a pretty 80's synth feel with maybe an early 90's kick/bass going on, and some orchestra hits also reminiscent of a couple Pet Shop Boys covers ("Always on My Mind", anyone?) - the arrangement is fairly fluid and begins with a tense, minimalist synth pad duet, growing into more elaborate, synth-laden action. However, the sound quality is a little on the murky side and the sampleset could use an upgrade. We've, uhh... mentioned this about The Coop before, that his arrangements are largely solid, but that the sounds, programming, and effects could use a bit more polish. Judge Vigilante writes:
"Allright, coop, you keep getting better...this isnt as mono as your previous mixes, but i still think you could be doing more panwork. The arrangement is good. but i think it's time for a sample upgrade"
...and I don't think he was being too harsh. We'll look to the ReMixer's next submission to maintain the high arrangement quality but definitely improve on mixing, samples, effects, etc. In the meantime, enjoy the arrangement - it does create a nostalgic atmosphere and harken back to the era, and covers a classic, important shooter that seems to have a pretty cool soundtrack that I'd imagine not many are familiar with.
