As of last night, I'm officially engaged! So, as you might imagine, I'm in the doghouse a bit for posting ANYTHING at all on this resplendent and momentous day-after-engagement. Thus, I will be brief. We've been having some server issues lately, due perhaps to some recent coverage in this month's issue of Game Informer magazine and our recent intervew over at Ars Technica on HD Remix - we still need your Diggs! Please bare with us as my ability to administer things and restart MySQL, etc. is greatly impeded by my vacationing in the Carribean at an all-inclusive with several open bars.
So, I wish I had one of my OWN mixes to post today, but my Doom 2 piece is still hovering at 95% complete, and is rather dark & brooding for such an occassion, regardless. Instead, we've got more great funky stuffs from Mr. Morse. His last mix was from his epic Ragnarok Online project, Hybridism, and he's got more where that came from, but he takes a break from the RO to give us this delicious and delectable funktastic arrangement from the legendary ToeJam & Earl soundtrack. TJ&E are, of course, the premier extraterrestrial purveyors of funk in the land of VGM, so their pairing with Joshua is rather the business; they fit each other like a glove. JM wasn't content with just one track either: this mix mostly avoids medleyitis while managing to pack in Big Earl Bump, Toejam Jammin, Funkatronic Beat, Alien Breakdown, Toejam Slowjam, Elevator, and Rapmaster Rocket Racket. Ya gotta love those source track names, which might explain why the ReMixer went with the comparatively minimalist 'Bumpin'' for his umbrella arrangement. The bass here is absolutely ridiculous - Parliament Funkadelic would be proud, and if Bootsy himself covered this source, it'd have to sound pretty close at parts. You've also got blaxploitation synth riffage, Ron Burgundy-style jazz flute, organ, EP, wakka-chikka guits, and of course the meaty, watertight drums that Morse always brings to his game. Some of the transitions are better (i.e. more natural) than others, but overall this is a downright funk smorgasbord, offering an all-you-can-eat buffet of TJ&E in full Morse production regalia. Now, if you'll excuse me, I've gone and made myself rather hungry... fantastic work from Mr. Morse that gives some great Genesis source tracks a new, shiny home inside a groovalicious mix that - whether anatomically capable or not - aliens and humans alike can and should shake their booty to non-stop.
