Bolischoy Tavieda! Malcos gives us some jazzed-up lovin' from everyone's favorite large, sweaty, oversized Russian wrestler. The fuzzed synthetic guitar lead here reminds me of my own lead in my own Streets of Rage mix from wayyyyyy back - similar timbre and ADSR envelope. Stephen delivers on the mix title, introing with an upright acoustic bass that dips down into some nice piano progressions after a rimshot-laden hip-hop inspired drum track lays down the beat. At 1'15" some swirling, phased or flanged pads come in, which is a nice add that fills in the midrange a bit more, and some more freestyle interpretation, especially on the piano comping, follows. Incidentally, most of the judges cited the piano as being the most salient problem, largely on mixing/incorporation issues, whereas I didn't have a problem at all in that arena. I personally would have liked a different, more nuanced lead patch - whether it's meant to sound like a grainy, dirty synth or electric guitar, to me it lacks a certain depth that a lead in a jazz instrumental should have. I have the same issue with my own SoR mix that I likened the lead here to, so maybe it's just me. This is Malcos' first stab at the genre, it's a resubmission that improves upon the original version he sent in, and it's still pretty dern groovy, with the bass and rimshot working their symbiotic mojo. Wingless, who certainly earns a place in OCR history as the oddest, most non-sequitir judge, quips in a good-spirited, cold war fashion:
"(read this aloud to the intro bass)
"And now... coming to the stage to give his patented brand of smooth-vodka poetry... Mr. Hip-cat, tight-raps, Zangief." ...
"HELLO! I AM ZENGIEF! I STAND IN LINE FOR BREAD! IN SOVIET UNION, STREET FIGHTS YOU! THANK YOU! GOODNIGHT!""
And what more can you really say? Good, explorative stuff from Malcos, who takes an initial stab at doing some jazzier stuffs and, after some revision, comes up with some solid SF2 coverage for he of 360 degree pain and anguish, The Gief.
