"This remix is a step forward for me in a way - it includes less of the same samples and patches I have used in the past and has more sounds I have made myself, unlike editing presets which I did a lot of in the past. With this remix, I took the source and tried to take what was so great about the original, and multiply it ten fold, and imo the best aspect was the dark tone of the track, being almost castlevania like. This remix does have a very castlevania-like sound - lots of organs, vox pads, an electric guitar solo, which is a first for my ocr mixes if this is accepted, and a trumpet."
All of Will's mixes have been good, but there was a certain consistency that did potentially run the risk of becoming repetitive, so I'm glad he's switching things up & expanding his horizons a bit. Don't worry too much, though - it's still the same Willrock you know and love. It's also our first mixage from Kazumi Totaka's score to Super Mario Land 2, and it's always great to see more portable games getting some TLC. You'll hear what Will means re:Castlevania as soon as the organ enters, but there's plenty of development and variety, and towards the end things shift away from the dark/gothic feel and get more major-key & anthemic. The filtered oooOOOOooowow synth in the intro actually sounds a bit like a didgeridoo, and the guitar solo at 1'52" is great, screaming stuff. Vinnie writes:
"I think Anso summed up the drums best. The high-end sounds loud, but they also sound hollow. It's a sizable problem, but that's my biggest beef with what is a GREAT arrangement. Will, I am soooooo glad you stepped out of your comfort zone for this, this is a great variation on your usual style. Maybe not my favorite track of yours, but I know as you continue to refine the production on these new skills you're picking up, you will make some really awesome stuff. Not to say that what's here is problematic, but it doesn't have the polished fullness of your best synth tracks. Guitar solo is damn cool, and you worked those new instruments into your rock drums + synth palette nicely."
This might be Will's best arrangement yet, although I think the judges were basically on the money that production on earlier, synth-only mixes was slightly more polished & the overall sound was fuller. But hey, he's branching out and doing new stuff, it still sounds damn good, and it's from source material we didn't have yet, so I'm a happy dude. Nice ritardando ending and drum hits wrap everything up into a neat, well-sequenced, rocking package. Great stuff from Willrock that expands what he's capable of while maintaining what we already dig about him, which is a great equilibrium to achieve!
