Here be a short mellow jazz arrangement from StarTropics that's simply as cool as a cucumber. Perhaps even cooler - even if it means offending the entire Cucurbitaceae family. It's also analoq's first collab, with Hemo. Don't know exactly who did what; hopefully one of the fellas can chime in with specifics. What I do know is that, along with deliciously laissez-faire EP, there's some really groovy synth soloing, all on top of a smoky, mellow vibe. Synth leads resemble alternatively sax and brass, lending a fusiony feel to things, but the arrangement itself is straight jazz, with the ReMixers drawing circles in and around the source melody. I've let this one loop several times now, and I'm still diggin' the hell out of it. Vinnie writes:
"Nice take on this classic theme, modifying the chords and jazzing it up. The lead instrument entering at 0:34 sounded a little cheesy at first, but I think as the song went on, it grew on me, reminding me of the early synths that got used in 70's music. It's a great atmosphere, very dream-like. Good improvisations too."
Definitely one of those situations where there's a split second that you think the mixers actually wanted the synth sax/brass to sound like REAL sax/brass, in which case, yeah, the cheese factor would be high. Turns out synth sax/brass have a very legit place in jazz, as they've got their own thing going on, which Mr. Matthews and Mr. Roman clearly know all about. Judges harped on the drums a bit... I see the crit, as they're definitely pretty basic, but the extremely loose tom fills add flavor, and it wasn't a huge issue for me. A single ride cymbal with some counter-patterns would have filled things out more, to be sure, as the hats end up getting overworked, but I'm too lost in the soloing to care too awful much. 'FlowTropiks' indeed; short but oh so chill.
