"Another "swamp" remix, albeit much more world-music influenced, and jazzier than the last. Inspired and in part a tribute to one of my favorite instrumental bands, Tuatara. If you haven't heard their work, I highly recommend it. Amazing fusion, totally live. Enjoy! Oh, and if you didn't see it yet - I was on TV last week with my Capoeira group. Got to chill with Tom Arnold and them on Fox. In the Capoeira section of my site."
...pretty cool - I didn't really know what Capoeira was, so that link was a learning experience for me. I thought it was just the name of the aliens in Bust-a-Groove... go figure. This is a goofy mix, with sort of an off-kilter feel to it, as if Mr. Keen had one too many and was swaying back and forth as he attempted to escape from a whimsical yet vaguely disturbing swamp. Due to some high pitches (I know... I'm one to talk, etc., etc.) you might not want to blast this, but I found it to be an interesting distraction from musical normalcy. It doesn't expand on the original melody itself too much, for a Mazedude mix, but instead opts for filling in the spartan context of the original with new percussion and auxiliary, supporting instrumentation. As the first to cover Commander Keen on OCR, from the same title as well, I am required by law to quote reserved-but-positive judge analoq:
"while it doesn't particularly evolve within itself or from the original much... there are some cool things going on with the percussion and some new harmonizations that make this mix interesting."
It's not Mazedude's strongest work, from an arrangement or production perspective, but it's very quirky in its appeal and has some charm to its dissonance and occasional nanny-nanny-boo-boo motifs. It's not something that's gonna be particularly soothing if you've got a migraine, say, but it does have as analoq notes some cool harmonies and underlying percussive effects going on. A little esoteric, not for everyone, but an odd piece that, while less accessible, sorta fits in with his Cool Spot mix in its lighthearted swagger.
