Mr. Wheeler, you're a sick, sick man. My labeling this mix title "tongue in cheek" only continues the unpleasant euphemism that perverts a once-clean & chaste pink mascot. What did halc have to say for himself in his submission email? Only: "Regarding the title; Kirby eats his enemies.. get it?" Yes, we do. Jumping the gun a bit, in his decision, Larry took an optimistic view:
"Arrangement-wise, Andrew's becoming very consistently creative. Definitely one to watch, and I hope he keeps this great stuff coming. As far as the mix title goes, hardy har har. At least it's not 'Put It in Your Mouth'"
... I suppose it could always be worse. Shariq notes that the source theme here is actually an arrangement of 'Rainbow Resort' from Kirby's Adventure, so technically this is an arrangement of an arrangement, but in the world of VGM that's actually pretty darn common. Quite a bit of chiptuniness at play here, but there are enough modern textures and production elements to diversify things. I love the hip-hoppish, extremely beefy bassline (fat kirby) contrasting with chirping, high-end percussion (hungry kirby), and everything in between. There's an upbeat, holiday feel, a good variety of arrangement ideas, and the filtered fade ending (while strings remain untouched) was very creative and well-executed. Little bit of old, little bit of new, and a whole lot of finesse putting it all together, more or less. Palpable writes:
"One of my favorite songs from Kirby's Adventure. Without even hearing your song, I can already tell it'll be a great match for your style, Andrew ...I love your style of mixing chiptune and modern elements with detailed programming; you have a sense of playfulness that gives your songs so much life. It's cool to see some new sounds (for you) show up here, like staccato strings and some unusual percussion. Keep making music!"
Good advice. Kirby clearly wants us inside him, and this ReMix is a persuasive invitation to acquiesce to his wishes; (more) excellent stuff from halc!
