I love this mix because it delivers on the promise of its title - with creeping, insinuating synth lines and a restrained, dark undertow that pulls you in, Ross really captures mental disintegration and downward spiral in musical form. He writes:
"I jumped onto the DKC2 project kinda late, and this was the last sorta-good source tune left to remix. When I started working on it, I tried making it sound sort-of like a film score, but decided that it's Donkey Kong, and not a film score, so I just deviated into a childishly evil sort of tune. I honestly really don't know what to classify this as, or really what I was thinking when I made it, but I think it turned out pretty awesome."
Ross has a good ear for edgy sound design, making harder textures work against softer ones, blending sharp and rounded corners into very complete productions that give listeners a great blend of safe & dangerous. At least, that's what I've observed with his tracks so far, but it's a trend I certainly hope continues. Project co-director Bahamut writes:
"In an unfolding of a tale, Ross gives us a piece that serves to portray a story being told - one might think of a storybook with its introduction. It gradually transitions to a more electronic dominated role, which is fitting given the diversity that the album contains. Ross did an excellent job here in crafting this track as the start of signs that things are amiss with K. Rool."
This piece is all about conjuring the devious, dark, and deceptive, and I'm glad Ross himself deviated from his original plans for something more cinematic and instead went with a more disturbed, dystopian vision. Great track that really stands out on Serious Monkey Business and adds a lot to the album!
