Dain takes off for boot camp with the United States Navy today (after which he'll be able to sing The Village People's classic "In The Navy" with complete credibility), so wish him luck. The ReMixer writes:
"Got a new submission here (obviously) from Guardian Legend. This one's been sitting around on my hard drive for a few months, and I kept forgetting to submit it, but here it is finally. Worked on it around the same time I worked on "Catapult," but it's completely different. Heavily Ace of Base inspired--thus the name--so I made sure to include a thick synth bass and some punchy drums. Just for the record, the vocal sample is NOT me, and it's saying "I make ya feel oh so fine." Had enough confusion about that with other people that I felt I should mention it."
It's definitely got the Ace of Base kick drum and bass, though it doesn't have that goofy Swedish guy doing makeshift raps between vocals about wanting babies, seeing the sign, etc. A little less edgy and certainly poppier than Beatdrop's other works, this even incorporates orchestra hits - tastefully - and also breaks some synth funk circa 1'30". Shariq cites both of these highlights:
"The man knows how to use orchestra hits. Someone get him a drink. 1:30 is funky fresh. For reals. Nice beats + weird vox = awesome. I love the squarewave around 2:20; awesome stuff there."
Dain elaborates on his new life:
"And by no means is my departure for boot camp and career with the Navy going to prevent me from continuing to work on music. Only time I won't have access to my computer is while I'm in boot camp, so don't worry, the beats will still continue to drop.
In the mean time, check out http://www.pulsenetwork.net to get the latest on the development of an arcade dance simulation game I'm involved with, called DanceTrax. The game also features the musical talent of SuperGreenX and Tefnek, among others, so definitely should keep an eye on that. Also available on the site is the entire 19 tracks of disc 1 of the free release of Everlast, my latest album, along with an exclusive interview conducted by one of the project's directors concerning Everlast, my songs in the game, and my future with the Navy."
As this mix illustrates, Dain's improved his electronica-centric approach to ReMixing over the years, in addition to serving as an OCR judge for awhile, so wish him the best. This is probably his most accessible and compositionally varied arrangement to date, and at 3'39" packs quite a bit of developed, elaborate electronica in. We actually haven't posted a more traditional electronica mix in awhile, so this also comes at just the right time to break things up thematically. Kudos to Dain for an excellent departing gift, one of a number of great pieces, and his months of civilian duty here at OCR as well; looking forward to whatever he sends our way whilst accelerating his life, but in the meantime, I'll be listening to this and enjoying my cushy office job.
