While he (hopefully) doesn't walk around naked in public while emanating a blue glow, Hugo Vinícius da Silva - aka "Dr. Manhattan" - does make some damn fine music. At least, if his debut mix, which won DoD back in February, is any indication. Judges unanimously agreed the brass samples here were hurtin' a bit, but only because everything ELSE was so durn good. Funky rhythm guitar, organ licks, and especially a meaty, dirty bass. And, hey, if that's not enough, there's also: blues/rock lead guitar, sax screams, growls, and noodling, wah guitar a bit later on, a clav solo, leather bucket seats, and a sunroof. Except those last two. And just check out the excellent attention to detail - notice the brief, subtle phasing/flanging on the drum fill at 3'36", one of many such examples. Basically, you can tell Dr. M cared about this mix, and the level of polish easily outweighs the discrepancy with some of the ensemble brass stuff. AnSo writes:
"The arrangement is terrific. Personalized, great part-writing and performance too. I said it before but I'll say it again, the sequencing is really well done here. These are some of the most varied drums I've heard in a while. Yeah, this is an easy pass for me. You could probably make it sound even fuller production-wise but it's not holding the track back when the overall production is good and the arrangement's this rocking. Great stuff!"
"While I agree with the others that the brass samples won't be fooling anyone about their realism, they do have a certain charm, and they blend well into the track. A/Bing it with some somewhat similar style tracks, like old school Chicago or Earth, Wind, and Fire, the scooped bass sound is actually pretty authentic... Arrangement emphasizes all the good things about the source and adds even more. This is nice stuff."
I agree with these guys - love the source, love hearing it fleshed out in what is a fairly straightforward direction, perhaps, but difficult to execute this damn well. Definitely looking forward to seeing what else Dr. Manhattan has in store for us mortals.
