You may have noticed our shiny new "mega-dropdown" navigation. It's still being refined somewhat, but it's pure CSS, SEO-friendly, and gives us a bit more breathing room to highlight all the cool stuff (we think, at least) going on. Give it a couple days to grow on you - we think you'll dig it. We (meaning me, essentially) also think you'll dig this Nemo mix from newcomer Paul Ford, alias metaphist. In his resubmission email, he wrote:
"Sorry for the wait, guys. I was excited that the complaints on the first sub were minimal, and I actually did most of the edits that same month. But I didn't want to rush it, so I let it sit while coming back to it periodically to make sure I liked it. Other obligations got the better of me, and before I knew it, a few months had already gone by. After letting this sit for months, I finally realized I should probably just submit it before I get sidetracked again! I don't have the same time I used to for music...
I think the major issue from before had to do with fleshing out the main sections a little more. I approached that by adding a layer of piano chords in the two main sections. Some had a problem with the slow section in the middle being a bit too long, but there was really no way to shorten it without losing the feel. So this is it. Maybe this getting excepted would motivate me to finish up my many other idle tracks!"
Of course, it was in the end accepted rather than excepted, which would have been a bad thing; either way here's hoping Paul does indeed feel motivated to finish up some of his other works, as this one's solid. Fluttering, flittering synth fireflies buzz about the ambient, floating intro, paving the way for a swing-time melodic soft jazz groove. An EP covers accompanying chords, supporting a bell lead, then gets some solo action further in. Paul feels very comfortable dropping the drums out, so the end result here is something that floats between straight-edge melodic soft jazz/ballad and more new agey territory. The ebb and flow makes it rather dreamlike, which is quite appropriate given the source material. Jimmy Circles writes:
"LOVE the glitchy pad right off the bat. Somehow I feel compelled to say something about Omnisphere now, but I wont. Crap, I just did, didn't I?
Second impulse is this reminds me a lot of Ziwtra's Blue Shooting Star mix. The drum groove, and all the shimmering, sparkling textures throughout. It's a very lovely piece to tap one's toes to, and it's full of warm fuzziness. I really dig the reverse delay effects, and I actually really enjoyed the chime outro. On the arrangement end, I really like the jazzy, yet laid back vibe that this piece has. This is a really enjoyable track. I can't really think of a better word for it."
Which sums things up perfectly, methinks. This is definitely a case of the genre/approach being very tailored to the source material - definitely music to jump over large mushrooms in your pajamas to, in other words. Dreamy, somnambulant debut showing from metaphist.
