Alrighty then. Shariq gives us some breakbeat-driven hybrid orchestral/techno from Chrono Trigger. And it's not Schala... err, not that we truly have anything against Schala, just nice to see the options explored a bit. Introing with a nice octave synth that establishes the chord progression, breakbeats fade in with strings and then a solo piano. DarkeSword's great at gradually phasing elements in - for example, the choral stab that follows the drum break in the next portion is seamless, and plays directly into the following recitation of the melody on guitar, which is then doubled up with a breathy wind lead as the piano provides some cross-panned accompaniment. Love the counter-melodies and the way the breakbeat pushes things along; the ending seems kind of abrupt, and I might have opted for one last solo refrain or something more melodramatic, but I think Shariq wanted to keep this piece relatively short and sweet, and the guitar in particular really works with the melody nicely, adding pitch bends and inflections. Plus, the breaks are at least spliced and diced a bit and not simply plopped down and repeated verbatim. At 2'28" I love what the guitar's doing - at one brief point it incorporates the main motif into an otherwise freeform solo of sorts, which I personally like to do as sort of a callback/relevance check. More strong work from Mr. Ansari, whose being prolific hasn't hurt his standards and has only helped him further master his mixing since his initial submission.
