He's going the distance... and he's definitely going for speed. Juan's Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World ReMix from Summoning of Spirits is our first from the game and one of only a handful of Wii ReMixes currently on the site. He humbly and succinctly writes:
"Just a last minute bonus remix I did for Kyle's SoS project. Simple rock remix with some synth and violin touches."
Touches? These seem more like fondles, really: the amount of both is significant. Larry actually suggested to Kyle & co. that they include something from this newer, next-gen entry into the Tales universe; he didn't know at the time that Sixto would be the one chippin' in. When I hear "bonus track" I often think quirky, interesting, but not necessarily something that would end up getting posted independent of the overall album. It's good to be proven wrong, though, as in this case the bonus track is an album highlight. Things intro with alternatively panned guit riffs before kicking into some ballsy rock that's not afraid to bust out a melodic, catchy synth solo. Guitars also get melodic lead, usually doubled up with harmony, here and there, but then violin takes over towards the end. Love those quick runs at the three minute marker, and the fearless use of pitch bends for some gypsy flavor. Some of the intervals on the synth solo remind me of Rush's 'Subdivisions', in a good way. Juan kept his comments short & sweet, so I'll do the same here: fantastic mix.

The intro's got that ...I don't know how to describe it. Japanese influence, I guess. And it just kicks right into the heavy stuff I've come to expect from this remixer. No complaints, except from the downstairs neighbor when I cranked it to 11 and maxed the bass box on my second listen.

I really need to go to bed, but I just can't stop listening to this.

I love the source on this one, and it's one of my favorite tracks on the SoS project. The three different lead sounds keeps things really fresh, and the solo section was excellent. Drums were powerful and tight, and everything clicked super well.
