Our first Wario Land 2 ReMix arrives courtesy newcomer Max Coburn, alias Maxo, who in his resubmission email wrote:
"Ok, so I finally resubmitted this (now that I have time over the break), and a changed some crucial elements. I made the drums a lot thicker and more lifelike, and added a bunch more beats in place of the old one. I also fattened the bass and played it through (didn't really loop anything). I fixed the general volume issues, and from what I can tell there's no clipping. It seems to have more energy, and variety then the old one. I'm pretty confident in this one, looking forward to what you have to say about it."
Apparently such confidence was well-founded; I know I sound like a broken record, but it's nice to see the resubmission process successfully result in an improved piece of music being posted. This reminds me to a large extent of Yuzo Koshiro's sound/compositional style; the intro in particular evokes Streets of Rage, while the funky breakdown that constitutes the majority of the arrangement might have been comfortable in Revenge of Shinobi contexts. There's soundtrack, jazz, funk, prog, and lounge elements, with electric piano (love the cross-panning), organ, distorted electric and clean wah guitar taking lead on some funkalicious solos. The brass stabs used aren't breaking the is-it-live-or-is-it-memorex bank on realism, but that sorta adds to the kitschy, solo-laden, indulgent methodology. Larry writes:
"The sample quality was spotty in some places and the textures were a lil' rough around the edges, but the arrangement is gold and the sounds here were used pretty well. Still some things I'd touch up, sure, but this piece is on solid ground baby. Really glad to receive a resub of this one, Max. The extra effort was well worth it, and I'm glad you took the criticism of the last sub in stride and came back with an even stronger result. Looking forward to more subs in the future, bro."
With Jesse adding:
"This track is incredibly tight. Crisp production; excellent use of the stereo field, effects processing, and what I will fondly refer to as "moodular delivery." Some of the ducklike samples in the middle, and the guitar are kind of in questionable taste, but it's nothing bad enough to bring the mix below the line. Arrangement is lean and effective. No fat to trim. The track as a whole is well put-together."
Great and unique first sub from Maxo, showing quite versatile and creative arranging concepts and production that takes some risks and is overall rather keen; very interested in seeing what's next.
