On with the show! While Echoes isn't as electronic overall as Voices, there's still a great selection of electronica tracks, and - as he's proven time and again - you can't ever go wrong with bLiNd. He writes:
"This is something completely new for me. There isn't enough electro house on OC ReMix so I did an electro house version of Golbez's theme from FF4 for the site project. OA jokingly suggested I remix the song after the final deadline and I figured I'd take the challenge on. I seem to be doing a lot of these 3/4 time signature tracks and making them work somehow for dance music. I changed the chords so its not so evil sounding, to make it work for more of a high energy floorfiller. The bassline really gets people moving and I have video proof of it from MAGFest 7. Mazedude, bustatunez and plenty of others were bustin moves to this in my set, tons of fun. Hope you enjoy this different take on a well known villians theme."
Pretty awesome; love the mix title, too. OA agrees:
"Jordan's work is nothing short of amazing, and his work on the project is easily some of his best work to-date. Golbez 'N Goblins is a pretty cheeky title for the remix about the main villain of the game, but it's an aptly named mix, with some massive bass grooves, insane builds, and a breakdown where I swear I can hear Chun Li. Seems like these crystals are so sought after, even other games are getting in on the action! This is one of three astounding mixes bLiNd contributed to the project, each of them fully capable of letting loose some Red Wings caliber of destruction on the dance floor."
Definitely a dance-oriented track, infectiously designed around getting your groove on. The fading, oscillating intro comes in through a sort of sonic mist until the beat & ridiculously meaty bass drop. When this one kicked on at Otakon through their PA system, our chairs were rumbling. Remember that scene in Jurassic Park where they show the water ripple because the T-Rex is walking nearby? That's the general idea. The synth chirp/thwack used to transition after some bars gives the piece a very reflexive, reactive groove that's hard NOT to move in some fashion to. From the swirling, distant harmonic bells that eerily state one riff to the Bach-ish, Castlevanian motif at 2'00", this is pure quality and an absolute blast to listen to. Score another one for Final Fantasy IV: Echoes of Betrayal, Light of Redemption - badass track!
