One down, two to go! OCR and Joshua Morse continue to saturate your Halloween with funk fusion from Castlevania: Sonata of the Damned! Please help us out by retweeting, sharing on FB, seeding the torrent, etc.! Following up on the debut mix, we've now got some Simon's Quest mixage for you, arranging 'The Silence of the Daylight' in a style that's a little less funk and a little more jazz + Latin + lounge. If Morse's previous mix had the Belmont's crashing a disco party, this one has them sipping martinis at the super-exclusive afterparty. The artist writes:
"This was the 2nd to last track I arranged on the album. I felt like the album wouldn't be Castlevania without something from Castlevania 2, as that game's music, in my experience, seems to have the most appeal to the general public. I felt as if I took an unexpected turn (generally speaking, of course--cuz you know, if you know me, this is how I do, son!) with the arrangement, turning it into a Lounge Jazz/Bossa Nova-style arrangement."
Things intro with organ, but check the harpsichord + clarinet lounge vibe that enters immediately following - it brought a smile to my face instantly. I love that Morse changed the style drastically, but KEPT some of the gothic instruments. Harpsichord in a lounge track? Why the hell not... he makes it work. Lovely piano solo work, with some equally good vibes later on. Upright acoustic bass keeps the low-end thick and movin', and there's solid acoustic guitar strumming to close things out. As with the previous mix, you've heard the source material here hundreds of times, from dozens of artists, but you've never heard it from Joshua Morse, and he always makes things his own. Love the mellowed-out ending, too - pure class!
