Protricity kicks it back a bit. Though still in keeping with his apparent predilection towards ReMixing DKC2 tracks, this latest submission is a bit more mellow than his usual work, with a very floaty, peaceful, pastorale vibe going on, complete with rhythmic bird sounds. Drums are of the swing, light hip-hop or smooth jazz fare, and there's a lot of breaks and fills that give things a light, extremely laid back feel. There's quite a bit of piano, but initially the synth lead sounds very close to a clarinet in tone, save for the fashion in which it pitch bends. More "analog" synth and a defined, heavier drum beat and basslne come in about halfway through, adding some momentum and a much heavier downbeat. The last minute or so features the running percussion dropping out entirely, some intermittent hits, and an excellent opportunity to appreciate the shimmering reverb and overall attention paid to where each element sits in the mix and how each is panned/cross-panned. In general this is very ethereal work, evoking the context of new age without actually being new age - sort of a musical oasis formed from electronica and light jazz. It certainly represents movement into new territory for Ari, and in that sense is amazingly successful at going new places but sounding like it was put together by someone's that's been there before and knows the landscape well. At well over six minutes, I was waiting for things to loop in a fashion I found too repetitive or uninteresting, yet while it's not the type of mix that keeps one on the edge of one's seat, it manages to be light, floaty, and otherwordly while also having substance and direction. Plus, it had birdcussion - no false advertising in the mix title here. Had it professed to include birdcussion and had nothing of the sort, I'd have to have labeled it a complete swindle, but fortunately this was not the case. Great extended chill mix, with a timely seasonal "Spring" feel to it. Recommended
