I primarily played the first TMNT game on the NES and this fairly arcade-accurate incarnation on the SNES, among the many turtle titles in existence. Back in the day, I was quite a fan of the fearsome foursome, standing in line for over an hour to catch a special sneak preview of the first live-action film. I also had, and for all I know still have, a bitchin' Krang impersonation, and am in possession of the original graphic novels by Eastman and Laird. I still consider TMNT 4's usage of Mode 7 to throw baddies into the screen in a 3D fashion pretty neat. But enough about me, let's talk about zircon and tefnek. They've teamed up for a turtled techno wallop that'll leave you shell-shocked... let me stop right there before it gets any worse. Suffice it to say, we got some kickin' electronica techno-funk action, mutant ninja style. Outta the gates you got a rippin' synth riff that's joined by a heavy beat with a GREAT example of using funky clavs going on to boot. Bass gets into the action, with a synth stack taking on the lead, later joined by some disco-style string stabs. Things go NSFstyle circa 2'41" for a quick breakout that transitions nicely, with 808/CR78 percussion taking over for the bigger beat in the following section. The sheer variety of synths and drums being thrown at the listener in rapid-but-calculated succession is impressive, and the same sort of technique you see in AE's work or in Star's recent Fei Long mix is applied here, though with less emphasis on cutting up the entire track and more on internal manipulations that don't partition the overall beat. This seems to be one of the more seamless collaboration mixes, as tefnek indicates:
"this is a collaboration between zircon and i. we remixed the song Sewerage from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Turtles in Time (called "06 Sewerage" in the spc at zophars). i hope you guys like, cuz we had a blast working together."
There's two types of collab mixes, basically - the type where each ReMixer draws on the other's strengths, which usually involve one person focusing on an instrumental or programming aspect, and the other type, which simply involve two mixers with comparable skills working off one another. I'd say this falls into the latter category, as both tefnek and zircon are more-than-competent at electronica. I don't know the specifics about who did what here, but it sounds very whole. Great, enjoyable collab beats; there's really only one (gratuitous) word which can adequately sum things up: Cowabunga!
