Mattias had two mixes in 2007 but a whopping eight last year, edging Sixto out by one and providing our first LSL mix - 'Larry's Funky House of Lowe' - that we presented to composer Al Lowe at Genericon XXI. We're back at Genericon XXII right now, our panel's tomorrow, and we haven't had any AnSo action in '09 yet, so it seems an opportune time to post his latest creation, from DKC3. He writes:
"I have to admit, I'm huge electronica fan. Because of this reason, and this reason alone I decided to do a pure electronica remix. I wanted to make some un-tss with a hint of minimal techno and a dash of whatever the hell I do. What I'm saying is, kickdrum, hi-hats, synths, a strange blend of real instruments and gating. That's what you get. Enjoy! (Also, I can't believe Donkey Kong Country 3 has only one remix! What's wrong with you people?) As always, MUCH LOVE!"
Yes, but *how* much love? Quite a bit, as it turns out. This mix has elements from different styles of electronica, with slicker chopping and gating paired up with trancier builds and filtering, and a whole lot of AnSo style. Things starts off upbeat, with a more major key refrain, but one thing this mix does especially nicely is segue between major and minor feels. The intro gating establishes a contemporary vibe, but then a more traditional major key bell synth motif enters. The beat fills out at 0'53" with a snare and faster hat pattern. There are some bridging sections that are more minimalist, with a hard bass driving on the same note with some subtle filtering, a nice detuned square lead solo/motif starting at 2'56", and I dig the reductionist, bass-only ending. Overall, an excellent blend of major/minor, contemporary/traditional, rhythmic/melodic, and myriad electronica flavors. It's worth noting that, fresh off the previously released Artoon, another XNA community game - The Perfect Match - just came out with a soundtrack that he composed. We'll no doubt be seeing more from Mr. Gerdt this year, but for now enjoy this ReMix from the underappreciated (relative to 1 & 2) DKC3 score.
