Here's something else to be thankful for: it's been three years since NoppZ submitted anything, but he's back in style, and he's only gotten better with the time he's spent working on largely hip-hop projects. You can hear that influence come through on this great Zelda 64 ReMix a bit, though there's also a distinct jazz inflection to round out the overall house/dance motif. What I love most about this piece is how Filip has taken these themes and altered them significantly, both melodically and rhythmically, so that they flow into one another as sections of a single song, rather than a medley. This is exactly what I've tried to do on more than a couple mixes of my own, including Pachelbel, which covers one of the same themes, as I prefer the higher level of integration over a more traditional medley approach. So yeah, I'm a bit biased towards this methodology, perhaps, but I think even those with a more purist mindset will be able to readily identify the songs Mr. Thimren's repurposed. BGC wrote:
"I'm really digging this. I really love it when a remix totally catches you off guard with it's fresh and innovative style, and this mix does just that. And by fresh and innovative, I mean to that particular OST. I really didn't have a problem hearing the source, even before reading Larry's breakdown. It's there. This isn't typical stuff you'd expect to hear from any LoZ game, but it's really great regardless. This may not be Brian Transeau, but it's funkaliscious and it's got me tapping my feet and what not."
I personally think it's damn fun, but at the same time rather crafty in the rhythmic inversions and melodic transmogrifications it pulls off; zircon didn't have any issues with the late-breaking key change, but I have to say that that'd be my biggest beef. It's not a deal-breaker by any means, but I can't emphasize enough how dangerous I think key changes of this nature are, how many times they've made otherwise respectable pop songs somewhat embarrassing, etc., and I wouldn't count this as a sterling exception. Regardless, it's towards the end, after the magic's already been cast, and things fade away soon after. In spite of a potentially problematic ending, this mix marks a fantastic return to form and function by NoppZ, who was a major ReMixing force-to-be-reckoned-with in 2002 and early 2003, and who ably proves he still cuts the mustard, and has only gotten better in the interim. Here's hoping there's more where this came from - enjoy.
