Yeah, you've heard the 'Terra' theme before... but not like The OneUps spin it. Anthony, Tim, Greg, William, Mustin, and Jared just released The OneUps Volume 2, and it's a two-disc humdinger of VGM goodness. And I don't use the word 'humdinger' lightly. Dammit. There's Sega stuff, Nintendo stuff, old stuff, new stuff, and ALL of it is good stuff. Including this FF6 hotness; the original album cut transitions directly into some delicious Toe Jam & Earl, so we had to do some fading business, in addition to Larry giving the track an original (Mustin-approved!) mix title to jive with our standards. The funky shizz towards the end is actually the beginning of said TJ&E track, but if you want the full deal, you'll need to buy the album. Ahhhh, capitalism... none are immune! But we all know these guys, they've put out tons of great free music, they've selected a track to release here on little old (not-invited-to-PAX-even-once) OC ReMix, and there are far worse ways to spend your money.
There were a lot of links in that paragraph, but let's talk about da mix... as you would expect, there's tons of real-live-instruments® and musicianship on display, and - also par for the course - the arrangement plays around musically quite a bit. The 'Terra' theme is rather somber and dramatic, but these guys alternatively jazz and funk it up big time. Which (for those of you playing along at home) hasn't really been done on OCR with this particular material, so kudos there. The entire third minute here plays it loose... real loose... but then we get back to the material proper with lovely, lyrical, melodic violin, before segueing back into funks and going all ToeJam. If there's a weakness to the mix, it's that the minute of jamming feels a little bookended by straighter arrangement, rather than being spread out evenly, but that's nitpickin'... and this is fingerlickin'... good. Like the chicken. Honestly, 'Terra' needed this... it wouldn't have turned out half as nice, but when I thought of how I might arrange it myself, I always considered funk/jazz as a viable option, and The OneUps deliver a great realization. Pretty simple advice: check it out, and check their album out, for some great VGM arrangements played by some very talented musicians.
