So, two ridiculously great Sonic mixes down, two to go! Next up is Joshua Morse w/ some Sonic 3 action. While it's all been unilaterally great, it's still a little refreshing in a sense to be posting a non-album Morse mix, just for variety's sake.
To get it out of the way, yes, this is an 'Ice Cap' mix. However, just as AnSo yesterday proved that he had something to say about SMB's 'Overworld BGM' (1-1), we know that jm isn't going to send in just any old arrangement of such an iconic track. He actually made the track as part of "Obligatory Ice Level Day" over at http://oild.thespeedgamers.com/ - check the site out for more music & fan art. This is an 80's synth-funk jam in the truest sense of the label, with a sticky, moist, and sexy groove that's equal parts nostalgia and jam. Sound design on the FX adds supreme amounts of flavor to an already rock-solid 80's funk/pop arrangement. Once again, you've heard 'Ice Cap,' but you haven't heard it like THIS. I just saw Hot Tub Time Machine for some reason I'm still not 100% sure of, so the timing's particularly perfect for all the 80's staples.
Not much else to say - yes, it's been thoroughly covered, up one side and down the other, but it's still a great source tune and still obviously yielding different & extremely worthwhile interpretations. Make your fourth funky and get your patriotism on in cool, retro fashion w/ jm & OCR!
