With that much hype to live up to, I certainly approached this mix with skepticism bordering on dismissal, but it turns out Ben's self-aggrandizement and lengthy boasting was justified. I kid, of course, but the mix - a thumping electronica arrangement from LttP bookended by lofi, intentionally hissy intro & outro segments - is definitely fun. The cross-panned sifting modulation at 0'29" is a wonderful transition into the let's-get-serious bassline + beat that follows, and the mix develops nicely from there. The arrangement marries the two source themes quite well, but is definitely - as Ben acknolwedges - straightforward, i.e. conservative. OA writes:
"Once the track comes in, it's a pretty good mix of in game sounds, original-sounding synths, and more hifi stuff. I agree that it is pretty straightforward arrangement-wise, though there are some good linking sections, and a cool new feel."
The initial version had some leveling issues that were addressed, but even so, judges did feel that this track was less interpretive/elaborate than the artist's previous submissions. Ben's been pretty damn creative in that arena, though, so it seems like he just wanted to do a fun, solid mix of the two source themes, applying some slick production techniques but not necessarily going overboard with ideas or stretching himself too far. And, hey, that's completely cool by us - it's a solid track, I certainly dig it, and I think a lot of other folks will too.
