Besides being the helpful substance that fuels the NCC-1701x line of quality starships and keeps those neon rings moving up and down, antimatter is now also the latest ReMix from Beatdrop. We last heard from the twinless Olsen back in December of '05, and he's only covered the ubiquitous CT OST once before, in February of '03, but now he's back with some trigger-happy Trigger happy, dropping the beat as only Beatdrop can. Something about woodchucks comes to mind... The ReMixer writes:
"Been an eternity since I submitted a remix, but I finally created one I'm satisfied with. Seems so hard to do these days. This is a dark, angry, brooding remix of the Magus battle theme from Chrono Trigger. This was actually one of the first songs I ever attempted to remix, and the version I made back in 2001 is, well, pure unadulterated shit. This version, on the other hand, is pretty tasty. But that's subjective, so I'll leave it up to the ears and minds of whoever ends up reading this. Pulled on a lot of inspiration from Concord Dawn for this. They are one of the truly great names in drum 'n' bass music today, always outdoing themselves. Anyway, similar in style to the kind of stuff they've been doing lately, I wanted to make something with humongous bass synths. So here it is."
Bass synths are indeed ginormous, so we're not being shafted on the low-end. Dain may have been a bit too generous on the high-end, however, as the only consistent negative amongst panelists was that there are some rather loud, potentially even grating, higher frequencies in this piece. As Larry put it: "Beatdrop cares not for my ears or yours. When dropping the beat, one cannot be bothered by such things." The beat may be Dain's to drop and Vicki Sue Robinson's to turn around, but it's ultimately ours to pick back up, and you may want to adjust your headphone/speaker volume on the conservative side of things as a preemptive measure, then calibrate appropriately during listening. If Dain ain't sold you on his hard-hittin' in-your-face stylings to date, this isn't going to be an epiphany, as it remains quite true to the mofo's M.O., being that of more aggressive and faster paced electronica sub-genres. It is the ever-popular Magus theme from the ever-popular Chrono Trigger soundtrack from ever-popular Squaresoft, however, so that might unfreeze the calcified hearts of those previously apathetic to the dropping of beat - who knows. Andy knows:
"Ooh... right from the beginning, I could tell that this remix means business. I'm a huge fan of "Deserted Industry" and "Catapult" and the harsh electronic sounds used in both of those. And, overall, I really like the sounds you used here as well. Lots of very creative pads, some butt-kickin' drums, crazy leads, thick bass... etc, that much is all a given. The arrangement is wonderful as well. The Magus theme can be tough to remix creatively because it has such a cool structure to begin with, but you did a good job, particularly with all the rhythmic variations (especially the tempo change). Major props on that."
So, aside from a slightly ornery temperament that bares its teeth a few times, you've got a great piece that's classic BD doing classic Mitsuda, with the bonus of being able to create wicked smart explosions when combined with plain ole matter - in other, simpler words: fun and loud.
