"this is actually a remix of a remix. i did the original arrangement for joecam's Animal Crossing project, then decided to remix my own remix since it sounded good sped up. the title and content comes from this, one of the greatest videos and greatest drummers ever - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PC20X0DKsqo"
We've got a couple great AC mixes from Kaijin and OA that each take the soundtrack in different, more traditional directions, but po really embraced the quirky, eccentric OST head-on. At times perhaps grating, the game's music is nothing if not original, and this mix preserves ALL of the zany while adding a level of musicality, funk, and spirit we've come to expect from the artist. While I love that we've got two mixes that sanitize the insanity that is the music of Animal Crossing, I'm equally glad po's taken the approach of maintaining, even amplifying the peculiarity of the source. The only issue judges had was with source usage, actually - the middle of the arrangement meanders a bit. Vinnie writes:
"I love the approach taken here, very reminiscent of Pizzicato Five and Fantastic Plastic Machine who were faves of mine back in college. Same sense of random fun with a predilection for bossa and sampling. I guess the issue for me is whether it's cool to do one minute of an arrangement, one and a half minutes of seemingly original material (plus uh Sagat), then another minute of arrangement. Put me down as a borderline YES - this would have been greatly improved with some Animal Crossing thrown in the middle somewhere. It sounded like at the beginning of the second section you were starting to do some version of the melody in a different mode and that would have been a nice twist if it followed through longer."
Shariq and Jesse both thought it was too liberal, but ultimately the majority disagreed. It's definitely on the thinner side of source usage at times, and pushes the boundaries of our standards a bit, but fortunately lands just within them. I too would have liked more connectivity with the source in the middle bits, but I also feel like the general overall quirkiness has a spiritual - if not melodic - relationship with the game's music, which persists throughout. Props to po for a truly singular, well-constructed & memorable groove and again to joecam for soliciting some excellent Animal Crossing arrangements from the community!
