Who is Zue? Should we be thankful to Ziwtra for reviving him/her, or angry? Not being intimate with the Terranigma universe, these and other questions are quite beyond my realm of knowledge, but I do know that one of the proud, talented Z-mixers has yet again come through with a shimmering bit of electronica. Though not quite as glimmering or ornate as previous efforts, this mix gets a little funkier in the percussion department, with mucho backwards effects and some dj-style scratching, to complement the myriad gated synths, flute and violin leads, and assorted other colors. Youngjin self-deprecates:
"The original is in 6/4 or 7/4 or some weird time signature and it took a lot of manhandling of the material to get it into the 4/4 breakbeat form it's in now. Other than that... this isn't a personal favorite, but I really do like that flute at the beginning. And the weird guitar sound. I guess I am not so happy with this mix because I used so many gimmicks that I have used in the past... other than the musical challenge of changing time signatures and adapting the song, I felt I didn't break any new ground or improve in any way. Oh well."
Now, comments like that might not exactly get you on the edge of your seat, slobbering thick sheets of viscous, anticipating drool all over yourself, but keep in mind that the Z-man's not one to toot his own horn, and even if a piece isn't necessarily his best, it could even be his worst and would still have headroom to kick ass. I'd characterize the sound here as more hip-hop influenced than previous, more thoroughly electronica arrangements Youngjin's sent in, what with the afforementioned scratching effects and also the synthetic electric bass. I dig the tres expressive flute from the beginning enough that I wish it would have come back in a bit more towards the end, but the violin's pretty smooth, too. Jesse sums up the overall panel vibe with lots of concise, lowercase sentences:
"this is a solid remix all around. it's got some nice sounds, i enjoy the flute. there are lots of instrumentation changes to keep it interesting. it never gets repetitive. there's lots of depth and texture. it isnt exactly over the top, but there's plenty here of interest."
Which sounds about right to me, too.
