"So uh there's a range of influences in this song, at first I wanted to make a Boards of Canada type song but some Crystal Method influence got in there. not to mention this is my first time doing a full out dnb/big beat type song, hopefully it doesn't sound too forced together. This isn't really the easiest song to remix since it's basically two repeating phrases, the only melodic variation coming from the key change between C and F#, so the source is used pretty liberally in the first half and the outro...hope that isn't an issue. so uh yeah enjoy"
So, uh, yeah... actually, I've heard some Boards of Canada before, and it seemed like pretty good stuff. I just like their band name, because if you say it fast or with imperfect diction, it can easily sound like "Whores of Canada" or "Bored of Canada," both of which would ALSO make good band names. So it's like a three-for-one bargain. Right. According to our illustrious judges panel, this one's in 13/8 time, so if you try tapping your toes to it and expect predictability, you might inadvertently find yourself doing the Lambada (the forbidden dance!!), wooing and/or frightening innocent bystanders. See See Sixty Funk for more details. Honestly, we really don't get a ton of electronica mixes in the dnb arena, so it's rather refreshing to be posting this. It's got some excellent beat work, with obligatory splicing/stuttering/mutating, coupled with an undulating bassline, warm pads, and shimmering synths. Actually, this reminds me of A Final Hit by Leftfield, off the Trainspotting soundtrack, but what do I know. At least up until the build at 2'22" where things get edgier, with distorted synth, string stabs, key changes, and more traditional drums - way to change things up! But wait, the deal gets sweeter - Radiowar throws down some badass mangled electric guit lead work, then outros on the initial, more ambient feel, sans drums. This is a fantastic, fantastic example of how dnb/electronica - a genre often criticized for pieces that don't "develop" or "go anywhere" - can yield linearly progressing, almost narrative arrangements. Quoth Aversa:
"Incredible! I love the intricate drum programming, smooth textures, and Boards of Canada/Crystal Method influence. While I was definitely enjoying the minimal/chill first half, the transition into a heavier and more distorted soundscape worked very well. I do agree with Larry that the bass could be pumped up more but honestly it's not a big complaint at all. The arrangement is highly creative and interpretive, to match the excellent execution. I gotta say, this is one of the most impressive subs I've heard lately - great job!"
