Ahh, Super Castlevania 4. The sheer goodness. From the intro to this mellow mix from Blak_Omen, you might think it's gonna be electronica, but in fact that flavor goes mellow jazz (not soft jazz, there's a difference, yo) pretty quick, with acoustic upright organ and piano, as a hiss that sounds sort of like air escaping and sorta like a continuous brushing segues into a brief doubletime polyrhythmic bongo break that serves to lead into a saxophone taking over the melody. Dig the chromatic run, stage right, at around 1'00", and the piano turns soonafter. The obviously intentional hiss reenters towards the end of the second minute as there's dropout and a solo piano bit - interesting effect, not sure if I'm 100% on it, but it does make things a bit more atmospheric and the overall presentation a bit riskier. The ReMixer does a great job of branching out from his previously piano-centric sound into some more varying instrumentation here, and the sax lead has enough articulation and syncopation on it to make it credibly jazzy and interpretive. Great stuff, if short, that aims to lend a jazz mentality to some previoulsy upbeat, very driving source material, and succeeds in tempering back the pace and making Simon Belmont take, as the title suggests, a short breather from all that vampire-hunting and what not.
