This is Patrick Burns' first posted mix since his debut Donkey Kong Land track back in 2006. It also concludes this debut flood of eight mixes that represent just a portion of the excellent album that is Donkey Kong Country 2: Serious Monkey Business, and there's a reason it's last - Patrick showed up big and really gave the source material a heartfelt and inspired arrangement, moving Wise's upbeat seafaring jig into a more intimate space at some points and at others fully embracing the joyous sway. I'm gonna keep this writeup quick and let the two directors do most of the talking - Jeremy says:
"Whoda thunk it? A project run by me has but one Celtic piece - and it's not mine?!? This was one of my favorite tracks on the DKC2 OST, but also the one I thought was most in need of a good remix, just because I thought the melody had the potential to go places that Wise's original didn't take it. In this mix, Patrick did everything I always wanted to hear done with this track, and more."
That's a huge compliment, because when I heard the original I too instantly thought Taucer would be all over it, and it surprised me to see Patrick's name next to it. I agree, though, Mr. Burns has done it full justice, delivering a mix that's not entirely unlike what I would have expected from Jeremy, exploring the source in all the right ways, feeling 110% natural the whole time. Wes adds:
"The last track of the flood, it is quite fitting that such a flurry of tracks ends with Patrick Burn's calm take on Jib Jig. One of the first few people to complete their track on the project, Patrick did a great job capturing the feel of being on a quiet ship sailing in calm waters, making seldom but good use of sounds of a ship and gentle ocean waves. Of course, the flute and other instrumentation also add to the jolly & gentle mood to great effect. This is easily one of my favorites from the album, as it really carries its vision about as far as it can reasonably go."
In the last forty-eight hours we've posted eight mixes. One of them is by David Wise, featuring performances by Grant Kirkhope and Robin Beanland - 'nuff said. Another is by Jake Kaufman, an amazing game composer whose return to these waters speaks for itself. I myself personally ended over a year of musical constipation with my own ReMix (I feel lighter!), and really all the tracks represent the diversity of ideas, voices, and creativity that make this community what it is. OA, The Maverick, and Emunator did a fantastic job with the artwork, Mr. Luers also worked diligently and finished up the website just in time, and Bronx Rican again delivered a trailer that manages to convey the size & scope of the music and game in under three and a half minutes.
Ultimately, though, the grand achievement is the album itself, and for that we look to Jeremy and Wes; congratulations are certainly in order for a job very, very well done!
