We were last Tweeked back in December of '08, when Brian left us a lovely non-denominational 'Holiday Frappe' ReMix under our secular wintry holiday-tree. Now it's March '09, and he's back with some funky monkey 'tronica:
"This is somewhat of a landmark for me. This is the first remix I've done that is not involved on a project of some kind. Watch it be instantly overriden :) Simply put, I've loved the song since I first heard bLiNd's version of the DK project way back when. I still maintain that "Aerofunknamics" is one of my top 5 mixes period. I'm glad to have finally taken the time to do a rendition for myself. There's no real significant part in this piece that stands out among the rest, but collectively, the electronic feel was perfect for what I wanted to accomplish. Bottom line, enjoy :)!"
I'd written a much longer writeup for this track, but it got axed when the evil satan of session timeout and poorly-implemented recovery struck hard. While we knew Tweek's musical vernacular included some kickass electronica vocabulary from his previous efforts, this mix strikes me as aesthetically different. It has a lot of textures that are neither pristine nor lo-fi, but rather "squishy," not unlike the effect of low MP3 bitrates, intentionally juxtaposing with sharper elements. The whole thing forms a sort of sonic tiramisu, with layers of gurgling, percolating, cutting percussive synth fx and a banana bunch of modulated synths all working together. The melodic hook is still handled straightforwardly enough by some staple synths, but the brilliance is in the details - check the oscillator sync'd synth solo, percussive dropouts, and keen spatial manipulations for reference, among others. All in all, an excellent, expansive electronica meditation on the original, with some especially fine sound work.
