As a bit of a sidenote, you may have noticed that towards the bottom of every ReMix detail page we now have "Evaluation Method" information, thanks to judge Digital Coma - this indicates whether the mix in question was evaluated by the judges panel or posted directly by me, and if it was evaluated by the panel provides a link to the judges decision thread in our forums so you can see what they said. Might be more beneficial for ReMixers and would-be ReMixers than Joe Listener, but who knows...
Joshua Morse gives us an interesting, jazzy MK64 arrangement with a bit of Christmas flavor and some fun brass stabs. The bass here is definitely doing some odd chromatic things, which at times sounds a little funky - in general there's a lot of chromatic tonality a happenin', which gives the piece a schmaltzy style that could remind one of a cafe but for me conjures images of Vegas (baby) - i.e. Mario and company cruisin' past the Luxor in style, looking for Elisabeth Shue and quoting Swingers extensively. Luigi is so money, and he doesn't even know it... but I digress: this is certainly chock full' o interesting ideas, in terms of tonality, the decision to integrate Jingle Bells, and the overall style/genre, which is pretty unique. Digital Coma, whom some of us call "Arvind", writes:
"I always cringe when I hear emulated brass exposed to a great degree, and is the brass ever exposed here! I can't quibble too much over it, it may be tonally a bit nasal but it's not god awful. Cool vibe, many mature harmonies present. I didn't find the mastering noteworthy; there is some audible clipping during a few trumpet/tuba runs and the instruments tend to bleed into each other. Smart transitions and lead-ins. Sneaking in jingle bell before the end was clever."
I especially liked some of the additional percussion towards the end - very groovy. Interesting panache and style from Morse - different kind of mix, but very viable, and interesting. Good stuff.
