"Yeah ok, so what is it? Every day this month, I’m going to be posting about that beloved video game trope: THE ICE LEVEL! Slipping and sliding, getting frozen, random ice monsters, snowy weapons, all that good stuff. Every day you’ll learn about a new level, hear some great ice level tunes, listen to some nice ice level remixes, download a new wallpaper, AND you can even use the preview thumbnails as icons/avatars if you want! So equip your frosty armor, befriend some yetis, and cast some ice spells as we celebrate OBLIGATORY ICE LEVEL DAY!"
You really don't have a choice, either - it's obligatory, see? The Speed Gamers are also having a Kingdom Hearts marathon from December 17-20 to help out BestFriends.org, a great organization to donate to if you're able. And what's OILD without some ice level mixes? First up is jm himself, with some FFX mixage. This is the first time we've posted a Final Fantasy ReMix from Morse since his debut FF7 mix all the way back in 2003. Seven years of awesome music comes full circle - he writes:
"I've loved Final Fantasy X music for a while now. I'm kind of kicking myself because I'm just getting around to arranging it. I always thought the original was rather interesting. The melody actually reminded me of Chrono Trigger, at parts. Its minimalistic approach made it a bit easier to translate into my own style, too. The name "Rondo Sanctuary" is a bit of a spin-off of the originally intended "Ronso Sanctuary" title. Every time I thought of "Ronso", Rajon Rondo, point guard of the Boston Celtics always came to mind. I decided to give into temptation and stick with "Rondo Sanctuary". I just hope Kimahri not upset with me."
I always forget that jm is a big basketball fan until I see him tweet something about it; cool title, given the context. ReMix is pimptacular, with pimp synths, pimp beats, and even pimp "HIT IT!" vocal FX. Mallets and electric guitar fill things out, harps glissando, and smoothness ensues, with acoustic piano doing the heavy solo lifting towards the end. Lovin' the scratch FX and overall early 80's sensibilities on display; Morse always brings his A-game, but hearing it applied to FFX's OST provides a different vibe with familiar funk. Excellent stuff!
