Alrighty then; I'll be in the doghouse if I spend too much time on this mix writeup and don't assist in preparing for the imminent holiday festivities, so I'm gonna keep it short! Yesterday we released the Return All Robots! Original Soundtrack, which we heartily recommend checking out at the low, low cost of "free," and also posted Radiowar's slick, downtempo mix. Now we've got Mr. Gerdt, formerly known as Another Soundscape, with his own take on two of the game's themes, including the main theme. He writes:
"Arranging a composer friend's original game music is definitely one of the most fun, rewarding experiences there is. Trying to disassemble and reassemble the work of someone you actually know makes it just that much more fun. Tackling Andrew's music was especially nice considering that VotL and Andrew's support got me into OCR and game music to begin with! This arrangement also gave me a chance to flex my groove muscles a bit so I made a thumpin' dub arrangement fitting of a Space Whale with some live electric bass and guitar added for great justice. The track is, as always, done in Reason+Record by Propellerhead Software."
Bob Marley in the house... Production here is straight up reggae/dub, with funky wah clav, dubtastic delays & deep verbs, a strong offbeat, and really rather nice acoustic kit drums, all of which deviate from AnSo's recent, more electronic direction. Replace the synth lead with vocals singing about shooting sherrifs, jammin' in the name of the lord, buffalo soldiers, or better yet, all three, and you'd have a modern reggae track with some pretty authentic-sounding ingredients. Mattias stirs it up and really embraces the genre, and it shows in the details; while the actual notes are relatively simple, the production & nuance around those notes, in particular on transitions, is superb. Great stuff from AnSo... damn, gotta get used to this... great stuff from Mattias, who throws down some legit, funky, atmospheric groove & gives Andy's source tunes a smoky, Jamaican makeover.
