Binster brings us a ReMix not from the more commonly known Genesis/SNES Japanese score to Ghouls 'N Ghosts, but the C64 incarnation penned by Tim Follin. Lo-fi and chiptunish elements abound, but there's also shimmering analog pads, spooky theremin-like sine drones, and a strong 80's Billy Idol beat, amongst shinier elements, and even the simpler synth textures are mangled with quick cross-pan modulation and filtering. The arrangement itself doesn't stray too far off the beaten path, but there's a great deal of expansion given to sound design and builds that change the nature of what you're hearing dramatically as the mix progresses. Vigilante insults our mothers:
"This is excellent. The synth programming is raw but subtle. The production is crisp and dynamic. The arrangement is dense and well-planned. Even the ending rocks. The whole track is tighter than, well...your mom."
"Short and sweet, I thought the production was excellent the whole way through and that the arrangement displayed great dynamics to retain the listener's interest. Martin not only worked towards creating his own interesting sounds and textures, but substantially built upon the framework of the original with his own additional writing to fill this out and ratchet up the energy level."
This mix is actually the first posted result of a project Larry, Kaleb Grace and CHz are putting together to honor composer Tim Follin, titled "Dirge for the Follin". Had they asked me for a title - which notably they did not - I could have suggested "I've Follin and I Can't Get Up", the Tom Petty-flavored "Free Follin", "Follin in Love", or the very literary "Snow Follin on Cedars", among others. But perhaps it's best these gems be kept as mere potentialities, alternate arcs in any one of myriad alternate futures we'll never experience. While pondering that or other equally useless nonsense, take the time to download Binster's latest and give it a look-see, or rather a hear-listen - very crisp, sonically inventive stuffs.
