"This remix marks my arrangement of one of my favorite game themes. The style is a little more reserved than what I usually do, and reminds me somewhat of Disco Dan's Riptide mix. I just redesigned my website and realized that I don't have half as many remixes actually released as I have halfway done sitting around on my hard drive. Hopefully this submission (and others) will help to rectify that. :)"
Nice to see some Wave Race action up in here, specifically Wave Race 64; I was unfamiliar with this source, but figured since it's Kazumi Totaka it pretty much has to be good. Turns out I was right, so thanks to Greg for shinin' a light on it. Mix intros with some rain and ambient pads, then a small synth melody starts off and gradually grows into something bigger. Very major-key, upbeat vibe, with cross-panned bongo riffs on top of a straight four-on-the-floor dance beat, and tons of filtered, shiny synthesizers. Love the dropout section at 1'45" with mellow piano chords underneath... it feels like a watery oasis, which is completely appropriate given the source material. Greg definitely panned a lot of the synth leads pretty hard left and right on mixdown... occasionally, on headphones, a couple synths went too far left for my taste, but the opposite - dumping all elements into the center and essentially ignoring the stereo spectrum - is a hundred times worse, so kudos to using that space.
What I specifically dig here, beyond the solid groove and straightforward, enjoyable arrangement, is that the production has an overall sheen to it that gives the highs a lot of breathing room and emphasis, making the whole piece seem like a light breeze on a cool, refreshing shore. In other words, the production really syncs up with the atmosphere of being near the ocean, and I think that adds an intangible benefit to what's already a strong track. Great work from Sole Signal, good to see his first submission in 2010 and our first Wave Race mixage, and looking forward to seeing what else he has in store for us this year!
