More epic mixage from NBNG that'll get your balls hurdling through the air at high speed in no time at all! While we just posted up Mr. Getman with his Klax/NIN action, I asked Mustin which two pieces from No Balls, No Glory would be best to highlight the project, and this was one of them. He was actually diggin' on ktriton's track as well, but we posted JJT's collab instead since the bday timing was too good to pass up. Rest assured you'll likely see more tracks from this project popping up in the not-too-distant future. Maze writes:
"Ah, the all-American remixer tackling the USA All-Stars theme. Truthfully, I wasn't sure the best genre to mix this one in, but after a few experiments landed on a very tracker-specific genre called "doskpop," otherwise known as "demostyle," which ironically originated quite outside the United States. Scandinavia, in fact.
That said, enjoy this homage to trackers such as Elfwood, Lizardking, and Hunz, and at the same time an homage to one of my personal favorite NES games of all time, Super Dodge Ball."
I've got a limited, admittedly superficial familiarity with demoscene stuff, but from what little I've heard, Chris has done an excellent job channeling the sound, with intricately sequenced, harmonized synth lead-heavy pop. There's a lot of melodramatic tempo fluctuations and flamboyant synth fx, everything's absolutely water-tight in terms of sequencing and arrangement, and production is solid while remaining within the traditional sound palate trackers allow. It's fun to contrast this mix, the previous Klax mix, and the Grim Fandango ReMix before that, as the variety in both style and production is really impressive. Of course, you can keep going back further through MD's oeuvre and continue finding disparate and awesome music, but the common strain throughout everything is craftsmanship - I've never heard a Mazedude mix that sounded unrefined or unpolished. Even when he's pushed the envelope on pieces with bizarre sound fx and peculiar structures, every track oozes with both intent and attention to detail, and this is no exception. Excellent homage to both demoscene music AND Super Dodge Ball, and yet another hot track from No Balls, No Glory.
