Vinnie is really one of the unsung heroes of OC ReMix. Or perhaps he *is* sung... hell, I'm singing him right now, so that's something... I've tried to work in 'Oedo-Hop' to playlists and panel presentations whenever possible, to introduce folks not only to the brilliant Mystical Ninja score but also Palpable's unique brand of toe-tapping, refined electronica. In addition to all that plus his position as a member of the esteemed judges panel, Palp's been helping out behind the scenes with database work and interview editing/formatting, which is all the more important given my restricting schedule this year. This is his first mix since November of '07, so 2009 already has 100% more Palpable than 2008 did, proving its ever-growing superiority. Vinnie writes:
"I almost called this "Apologies to Trentemøller" because parts of it are a complete ripoff of his style. When I started writing this song, I had just picked up his album The Last Resort and the bonus disc that comes with it (both amazing btw), and they basically took over my brain for a few weeks, heavily coloring this song.
But enough shilling for him. This has parts that don't sound like him so there's some other inspirations in there too. I recorded some guitar for the first time as a nod to the post-punk music I dearly love. On a side note, I was pleasantly surprised that no one had touched this theme because it's always been my favorite from the game. I guess Rearmed seems to have a pretty chill take on it. Anyway, hope y'all like it!"
It's cool to see Vinnie bust out the guitar; he and Jimmy can both play pretty well, yet seldom incorporate it into their arrangements. This has an electro-groove that makes me picture the Commando himself doing a mean, bionically enhanced robot; things intro with a lean groove + thick bass but da synths come in soon enough. The main hook is handled by a trance-type lead that soars anthematically into the upper registers as EP, pads, perc fx, and - later @ 2'40" - guitar all swirl around underneath. Nice intervals - this one gets around a bit compositionally for an electronica piece, with lots of variation, transition, and color. Never gets old, components have great separation so you can appreciate each fully, and I love the direct, unafraid arrangement. Excellent stuff.
