Mr. Ansari, recently appointed to the judges panel, isn't actually a big fan of the original special stage music from Sonic 2 that this latest ReMix of his covers, but for not being too into it, he's made quite an enjoyable, sugary sweet techno pop arrangement that's injected with a good dose of musical prozac and has had a melodic botox treatment such that it always smiles - but not in that scary, fake, real estate agent way, but rather in a lighthearted, jubilant, unobjectionable fashion. GL writes:
"The vibe throughout is nothing short of happy, uplifting and celebratory. Instrument selection is perfect. I especially love the piano and bells. This is especially obvious in one of my favorite sections around 1:20. Transition points throughout are silky smooth. At around midway the best section with the bass and bongo/congo appears. Really great work there. The bass and drumwork is consistently good and appropriate throughout. "
The instrumental section is indeed quite nice, and the running cross-panned arpeggios do a good job of adding to the multi-layered, very full sound. Nice string intro, too - good way to start things out. This isn't especially risk-taking, and relies on the same proficiencies and methodology Shariq has displayed and employed to previous success, but you can't fault an approach that works, and I imagine those clamoring for coverage of the source material should be quite pleased, as well as others into happytronica and Sonic musics in general. Great, solid work with a lot of substance to it.
