How about some Final Fantasy VII rock/electronica action from Fishy? Can you really decline such an invitation?
First things first: Check out this video of Cain playing the lead guitar part live. Damn right.
...In addition to featuring "AnSo as Swedish," that's some pretty badass guitar work. The mix is also one of Cain's best to date, with an arrangement that fires on all cylinders and production that fires on even MORE cylinders than was initially apparent, for a total of at least 512 cylinders, all firing, all the time. Extended metaphor - run with it. He writes:
"Structurally and stylistically this draws heavily from pendulum, in particular a song called Another Planet but more in the kinda rock crossover style that you find on In Silico. I started toying with addictive drums trying to make them sound as huge as possible and added this drop-in riff just to try it out, and suddenly I had a whole remix.
I really had fun making this; I'm not usually particularly good with synth based stuff cause I'm usually too impatient to layer or automate modulation properly etc but I'm really proud of this."
As well he should be. Whenever a traditionally humble, even occasionally self-deprecating artist like Fishy says "Hey, this is pretty good shit," I think we all look a little closer & perhaps even get a little more critical, but this mix withstands deep, thorough inspection and probing and gets a clean bill of musical health. It's got a pulse of rock-the-hell-out, a temperature of Mr. Super Hotpants (Celsius), and blood pressure of 180 over awesome. Yeah. But don't take my medically metaphorical word for it; 4 out of 4 doctors agree! Dr. Prabhu writes:
"I thought it was a great pairing of Pendulum's style with these tunes. Your synth work was pretty cool here, you deserve to be proud!"
If you experience shreddage lasting more than four hours, you should of course consult a physician, and side effects may include partially melted face, ringing ears, and/or excessive FF7 fanboy gushing. I had a blast listening to this the first time, then just as much of a blast watching the short vid Cain put together; great stuff.
