Quinn Fox returns more than a year since his last mix with our first coverage from Shining Force CD. This relatively laid-back electronica piece is laden with purer synth tones that are occassionally mixed with lo-fi effects, juxtaposed against mysterious, enveloping ambient pads and layered, downbeat-heavy drums. Malcos writes:
"Very atmospheric, ambient sounding piece. The arrangement is very engaging, with the textures ever changing. This is definitely something different, and treads that fine line between quirky and weird - I could see why Liontamer thought that this could end up being an overall yes or no. I did think the hats were a touch too loud, and there were times when I thought that perhaps relying on slightly altered drumloops was making the percussion elements boring - but as soon as that thought entered my head, the groove changed. Very original, very good, very quirky."
I'd tend to agree that some more variance in the percussive department - a stuttering effect, fill, or filter sweep, for example - would have helped delineate between the mix's sections. What's particularly cool here is the interplay between the different synth textures, bells, and pads, and the harmonic and counter-melodic ways in which said textures are utilized. JJT provides a succinct one-liner:
"This mix is deceptively simple, well written, and displays a wide palette of sonic textures."
Couldn't have said it better myself; good stuff from Quinn, merging rudimentary, almost chiptunish textures with more dynamic, evocative ambient for an enjoyable and interesting listen.
