Yes, we're still here. Things have slowed down to a grinding halt as quite a bit of preparation goes into the 250 mix interval landmark torrent releases. In addition to one last final lockdown/removal of mixes that didn't meet standards at the original time of submission, the details of which are maintained in our changelog, we're also going back and fixing ID3v2 tagging issues, etc. and making sure everything's as clean as possible before re-torrenting. It's a lot of work; please bear with us, as it impacts OCR's overall schedule tremendously. I've recently purchased a Nintendo DS, New Super Mario Bros., and Soul Calibur 3 just to help me deal with the added stress (well, also happened to be my birthday on the 25th). We've also got Otakon coming up next weekend, and a couple site projects waiting in the wings, so these are busy, busy times. Nevertheless, we inch one step closer to 1500 with this collab from RTF and Malcos off of the Blood on the Asphalt project. When I first got into Street Fighter 2, way back in the days when the parallax scrolling effect on the ground was considered scaldingly hot shit, I played as Chun Li. Old thunder thighs served me well; I capitalized on her wall jump and head stomp, rocked the lightning kick, and sort of ignored the whirlwind kick altogether, which didn't become too useful until SF3. But I digress; when SFA came along I finally sold my soul and switched to the Ryu camp, but I still recall the glory years of Chun fun. Now I can recall them in stylish electro jazz that's pentatonic fun for the whole Li family, courtesy Stephen and Caio. Now, Chun's melody was a peppy little pentatonic ditty that most of us are probably familiar with, but I doubt too many would have seen it being adapted to a jazz/fusion piece. That's nevertheless the game here, with extended wah EP, acoustic piano and organ solos, piano comping, acoustic drums layered over electronic ones, synth lead, a nice thick upright bass, and oodles of polish. When these guys collab, it's nigh impossible to tell who did what, because everything sounds absolutely integrated and unified. There's plenty of details like filtered pads, fx, lovely hihat syncopations, and what not to accentuate the solos, but this is pretty much a solo-driven arrangement, with organ and piano duking it out between koto and synth-led versions of the simpler melody. This is a great mix of a classic theme that I would have thought was prohibitively pentatonic and repetitive for a good jazz/fusion rendition; thankfully, RTF and Malcos were up to the task, and created a fantastic groove for the original queen of 2D fighting.
