While "Curse Curse Revolution" may sound like an uprising of disgruntled Tourette's patients, it's actually the latest ReMix from rejuvenated fixture Filip Thimren, alias NoppZ. The obscenely clever amongst you may have pieced together the title's true meaning - Filip's taken CV4 and DDR'd it up one side and down the other, complete with high-pitched female "Don't hold back... the music" samples. I hosted some extended family for Christmas this year, and the two eight- and twelve-year-old girls that were included in this cadre insisted on playing DDR pretty much every day. I also deigned to play the "Kimpossible" GBA game with them which, I'm ashamed to say, was actually rather fun. I can admit this and still be a man. I think. But back on topic, I've heard my fair share of DDR tracks, recently, and in my humble and non-expert opinion, NoppZ nailed the vibe. Whether you LIKE said vibe, or find it rather too "scene", is of course your prerogative; some people I know can't stand DDR music, others love it. I do think you need to be in the right mood - it's not a particularly long-day-at-work or headache-friendly genre, but if you're part of the Dances with Arrows crowd, it's the perfect adrenaline catalyst. Jill writes:
"Wow, this is cheesy to the max! Everything from the vocal samples, to the 80's synths, to the four on the floor dance beat... Definitely DDR worthy. You really took this concept and went with it, which is admirable; lots of bold stylistic choices! A few sections seemed a little empty to me, in terms of source material, but you made up for that pretty well with the Vampire Killer quotes."
The visual image of Simon Belmont trading in his multi-directional whip for glowsticks and getting his groove on in a gothic Thriller-meets-Bemani stompfest certainly has lasting comedic appeal, but Filip makes it work. This is the type of concept that, done wrong, would spell certain doom and make baby Jesus cry, but thankfully this Curse Curse is more blessing than otherwise. If Konami, Capcom, Sega, Nintendo, and perhaps a few others could get together and make a DDR game full of nothing but game music mixes, this'd be an absolutely impervious inclusion. NoppZ steps up the voltage and clearly meets his goal of fusing Transylvania with Akihabara; remember to stay cool.
