"This is a mix of the Rusty Ruin Zone theme from Sonic 3D Blast (Sega Saturn Version). I originally created two different short remixes to this song, and later, combined them to create this one. It is in my usual Jazzy/Chill style, nothing thats really gonna blow you out of your chair, its just something to relax to. It took me a bit longer to submit this than I expected due to some unexpected trips out of town, but its all good. I also had a damn hard time trying to find a way to end the song, so I just kinda did a half assed fade out, while trying my best to mimic the way the original song ended. Its not the greatest idea, but hopefully it won't effect your decisions too much.
Since my headphones died on me, I had to try to finish the last section of this song without close monitoring of my volume levels and EQing. I think it turned out pretty decent, but If you guys spot anything that needs to be addressed, please let me know and I'll get on it right away."
... I think he set a record for self-deprecation and humble preemptive cooperation with judge feedback there! Larry and Shariq had a bit of a back-and-forth going on which Sonic 3D blast - the Genesis or Saturn version - had the best soundtrack. Quoth Oji:
"This did a good job of retaining a lot of the basic structure of the originals (even replicating those signature choir vox shouts) while creating entirely different textures... I thought the Rusty Ruin and Diamond Dust themes of Richard Jacques absolutely killed the Genesis soundtrack, but some people disagree."
DarkeSword fires back:
"This is a tight package mang. Beats, guitar, sfx, everything melts together with great synergy. It's got a really chill atmosphere... Man, you should tackle the Genesis/MegaDrive version of the soundtrack. It's so good, and so much better than the Saturn one (LARRY >:\)"
Definite Latin flavor here, with a very, very smooth buidup to the hit at 0'40"; though synths feature more heavily towards the end with some monoglide action, the bulk of this piece is more straight acoustic instrumental, like Damon's previous Chrono Cross ReMix. Excellent piano sequencing and a cool breakdown circa 2'01" with some ambient birdcussion; there's a good sense of depth to the production that gives this section in particular a wide, believable space. Whether you prefer Jacques to Senoue or not, this is a great & mellow jam that's well constructed and, in spite of any struggles the ReMixer had making it, sounds quite natural. Chill.
