Smood. With a retro elevator-musik groove that reminds one somewhat of Combustible Edison, Posu Yan and Joshua Morse team up for some Breath of Fire 3 goodness, our first from the series' third outing. They brought their polyester suits, gas-guzzling late 60's American automobiles, and bossanova jive along with them for the ride, throwing in intentionally repetitive but crunchy and crisp layered percussion, rhodes, acoustic piano, ensemble strings, synth bass, and a silky synth lead that's 100% class. I shouldn't sell the percussion short - while it does repeat a bit within sections, there's variety from section to section, some fills, and it's simply quite mellowtastic, so it withstands the repetition better than a lesser beat would. Brandon Bush says:
"This mix is a well produced, uber-groovy, yet conservative take on the theme that is very easy to enjoy. I agree that the bass is extremely thick and the percussion is repetitive but that lends to the portrayal of the genre. This is a straight out-of-the-box Casio Soundbank bossa nova groove that’s been given the flare of good production and quality samples. Combined with the Rhodes, the percussion and bass provide a rock-solid lounge vibe that stands well on its own, and is bolstered by the decently executed solos."
Lounge - that's the word I was looking for. Think Depp and Del Toro at the beginning of Fear and Loathing, for instance - ritz, glam, hotels from yesteryear, etc. The combination of po and JM's respective skillsets works well; they've got a similar predilection for rhythmically tighter, subtle grooves - very clean and controlled and usually mellow, but never uninteresting. Gotta love the meaty chord progression, crystal clarity of all constituent elements, and of course the polished, white-tie solos. Glossy stuff from two guys who seem to collab seamlessly - shake, don't stir, and garnish with olive.
