So yes - while "it" will always be "in the mix," so to speak, rumors of our assimilation by the EA collective as well ensuing legal troubles were greatly exaggerated. By us, no less. Shariq gets credit for the original concept of EA ReMix, Larry and Gray put together the quite singular Pigskin Power Madden mix, Rama and Suzumebachi coordinated the tie-in with the Duck Hunt project, TLF represented our faux legal adversaries with council from yours truly, and I also got to do the Photoshoppin'. But last and most certainly not least, analoq turned in a Road Rash mix that helped sell the concept by actually being rather good, albeit delivered on an abbreviated deadline. Aaron's polished it up a bit these last few days, given the extra thinkin' time:
"the problem was i couldn't get a lead sound i liked from my guitar. in this new version, i've scrapped all the lead guitars in favor of more synth sounds. synth sounds that would probably fit nicely in the 80s. it still catches me off-guard when i listen to it, i got used to hearing the old version, but this one is still preferred."
Besides a somewhat strange etymology, this is (still) some kickin' stuff, introing with a short-release treble-filtered guitar motif, then dropping in meatier electric stuffs, bass, a rock acoustic kit, and dreamy octave-doubled synth lead, swapping to a slinky wah-funk circa 0'37". Aaron still gets his electro in, with a 808-style kit and delayed synth bass groove taking over at 1'16" and a monoglide lead at 1'30" that trades off with a wow-attack brassish timbre following suit. The intro timbre is wisely recalled at 2'38" for a little break that gives the piece more cohesion, and it exits on an extended synth lead duet/duel over the heavier guitar bed sound. Road Rash needed a ReMix - it's definitely one of EA's classic titles, and a favorite of many who recall the company's rise to prominence during the golden, glorious 16-bit era. Unlike the franchise sports titles, it was original, copped a major tude, and had some good tunes to boot. I remember EA all the way back to playing Mail Order Monsters on my C64 back in the day, and while the company's changed dramatically with time, they've got a pretty respectable back library of older classics, and analoq's paid an enjoyable tribute to one of them with this mix.
