DigiE, aka Maurice Willems and Sanjay Sampatsing, don't submit mixes that often, but each one thus far has been straightforward, enjoyable, well-crafted electronica, and this latest Phoenix Wright cut continues that trend. They write:

"HOLD IT, everyone! It's time for another submission!

Phoenix Wright/Ace Attorney is easily one of our favorite game series in recent years, and we figured after all the enjoyment we got out of it, it was time to pay homage to it in the best way that we could. As such, we've remixed 5 tracks of two PW games (The original and the third) into one cohesive (we hope) remix. We think it turned out rather well, as it was risky trying to break melody with something completely different at first, but it seems Capcom is sneakier than we thought because most of the melodies flow through each other so well we couldn't help but extend our ideas even beyond it and include even more themes to the remix!

There's undoubtedly still a lot of other songs we wish we could've included in this song (Cornered 2004, Objection 2001/2004, Turnabout Sisters, and many more), but it's already gotten a lot longer than we had originally planned for it to be, and some things sadly didn't work out as well as we had hoped. We also definitely would've wanted to do a little more with the END theme at the very end, but didn't want to risk extending it to the point of making an end too difficult. In the end, we're hoping you enjoy this remix!"

Mr. Luers, no stranger to the music of Mr. Wright, wrote:

"Much love for the PW soundtrack from me- I kept waiting for the "OBJECTION" soundclip, and I was happy to hear it (which pretty much flies in the face of all my soundclip beliefs). It really doesn't feel like a medley, and though a lot of the samples are pretty expected trance ones, there are enough sonic surprises to make this an exciting track. The ending piano I thought was fine, and was an interesting and cool way to wind the track down."

Jimmy adds:

"Great work fellas, I've been a long time fan. Back since I first heard the OMF mix. Keep it up, remix moar."

Epic, anthemic, and as OA and others pointed out, miraculously avoids medleyitis while packing in quite a few source tunes. Maurice and Sanjay did a great job selecting tracks that really flow into one another, and the result truly feels like a cohesive, natural fit. Production's solid, beats and bass are heavy, and it's almost physically impossible not to toetap, headbob, or gesticulate rhythmically in some other fashion whilst listening. Excellent homage to the series' music!

OBJECTION!

Your honor, this mix is one of the most awesome tracks on OCR. It's six minutes of length does not diminish from its greatness. A mixture of beauty and power, every instrument works together to make a solid ReMix.

There is no evidence to the contrary. I find DigiE GUILTY of great talent and artistry.

Fantastic ReMix. This is hands down my favorite Phoenix Wright mix on the site and it is an amazing trance track. The way the theme blend together flawlessly is awesome and although the ending was like turning a 180 at the very end, it was abrupt and the soft piano was actually a great way to finish off such a energetic song. The Objection sound clip was a perfect way to enter the transition as well.

This song is what convinced me to finally give Phoenix Wright a chance. Not usually a trance lover but this song was the first song I got off this site (After downloading Serious Monkey Buisness - Only heard about the site this year) and instantly made me beome a regular visitor. Anyways this is a beautifull arranged remix so thank you. Love the 'OBJECTION!!' at 3:16

1-ani-phoenix-zoom.gif OBJECTION!

1-ani-phoenix-deskslam.gif Your Honour, this track ... it um ... you know ....

1-ani-edgeworth-deskslam.gif OBJECTION!!!

1-ani-edgeworth-point.gif Shut the fuck up and enjoy it. This mix is tight.

Ah man, I miss those threads. In all seriousness, excellent track that, strangely, reminds me of the Japanese opening (sans annoying lyrics) to Teknoman. This is not a bad thing.

I'm usually not a fan of trance/techno sounding music, but this is well done.

Nice job!

This is a fantastic remix of some of my favorite game music. I'm a huge fan of the Phoenix Wright series and this remix blends a wide variety of songs together into a good, coherent whole. This one is definitely going into my workout playlist! ^^

Usually I find a lot of the more trance/techno mixes kinda uninspired, but I was very pleased with this one.

Good with the weaving in and out of different melodies.

Very good production, excellently executed transitions. The piano throughout the mix is nice, though I don't care much for the ending; it's too long IMO, simple as that.

I'm a fan of this duo's stuff, and this song is no exception. Just an overall solid trance version of the original.

I will admit that I liked this song, but about halfway through I confused myself and had to double check the song being remixed. I could have sworn that someone should have yelled "MORTAL COMBAT!"... or mabye I've been listening to their soundtrack too much... oh well.

Wow, an extremely cohesive mix. This certainly was a good decision on the judges' side, because this is great stuff. It doesn't feel like being composed of medleys at all but really has a cohesive feel to it. Great stuff, makes me wonder what the games have to offer in terms of music :)
