"FiremanJoe requested this one. Wanted to do an industrial style remix. With the elements of electronica and some strings. Things get quite distorted, but it's all relative and ultimately purposeful. The ReMix is short, but that's because I accomplished what I wanted in the short amount of time. Elements of the source should be readily recognisable."
Though I'm sure FiremanJoe is happy as well, I can attest to numerable other listeners anxiously waiting for Pokemon mixes, all of whom should dig this as well. Not being particularly into the whole craze, I always envision sugary, poptastic, upbeat mixes when I see submissions of its soundtrack, but am more often than not surprised with darker, edgier or brooding fare. Go figure. On a complete tangent, for a second: go see No Country for Old Men. 1. Because the Coen brothers are among the best and most versatile storytellers working in film and 2. Because Javier Bardem as Anton Chigurh is a *seriously* compelling villain. Right then; I'm not entirely sure how I can spin this particular mix as representing a larger theme of that for which I'm thankful, other than to say that it's great to have one's preconceptions challenged, it's great to see requests being fulfilled, and it's great to see Lee making more great music. In this case, most of the judges felt the source material was... well... less than stellar, and that Lee did an admirable job transmogrifying it into something not only palatable, but enjoyable. Andy writes:
"On the whole, this is a well-crafted and enjoyable remix that really expands on a simple and rather crappy source. Chill pads and ambience, crunchy beats, synth riffage... it all gels together swimmingly. Some might say the arrangement doesn't really go anywhere, or it's not melodic enough, but I think TO covered all the bases in his own style as best as one can when working with a source tune like this. Good job."
It takes the mix a solid minute for a synth bass to enter, tempering the industrial vibe with a little synth-pop flavor; it sounds not unlike a hypothetical soundtrack to a hypothetical 80's-era science fiction movie, albeit with better production. There are some rather peculiar intervals here, which makes the more traditional, resolving intervals more satisfying. Odd choice of source material and juxtaposition, but it works - good stuff.
