We don't even care about our pudding; we're going for MORE MEAT! Platforming indie sensation Super Meat Boy has gotten tons of awards, acclaim, prestige, and even a PETA-endorsed protest/parody, Super Tofu Boy, all of which is awesome news for deserving composer Danny B. On Monday, the special edition of the soundtrack shall be unleashed upon the only-partially-suspecting world, and we've got not one but TWO advance ReMixes off of it, from some familiar and uber-talented faces. First off, following on the heels of 2010's awesome 'Power of the Meat' SMB mix from Poolside comes Benjamin Briggs with his own take on some of the game's USDA Angus musics:
"Super Meat Boy. Calling it a "phenomenon" is an understatement. Calling it "legendary" would be selling it short. If you called it "one of the greatest video games ever made", you'd merely be GETTING WARMER. Danny Baranowsky, the game's (super-sexy) composer, is a dear old friend of mine, and we used to exchange WIPs and general silliness on a daily basis back when I was new(er) to the community. When he contacted me about remixing a song of my choice from Super Meat Boy, to be included on the special edition of the soundtrack, I was extremely honored, and naturally I obliged.
The chiptune track 'Meat Spin' appealed to me on two very distinct levels: 1. It's a chiptune (derp) and 2. at the time I had been listening to a ton of deadmau5 and PrototypeRaptor, and was at a point where I was EXTREMELY eager to start putting out music that evoked the same energy and general punchiness. The chords and melodies of Danny's track immediately stood out to me as a perfect foundation for my first attempt at capturing "that" sound, and consequently this is the first time I've utilized gain pumping ("sidechaining") as a production technique. Stevo Bortz (aka Level 99), did me a huge solid by recording the guitar chord heard at the very end of the remix, and Jordan Aguirre (aka bLiNd) also helped me immensely by inspiring me to push my mixing/mastering skills to a new level.
Other than that, I'm going to let the remix speak for itself. I sincerely hope you all love it."
Hyperbole? Not even... Sidechaining is immediately evident as the disco-chip-funk kicks in and never lets go, with hooks aplenty and an infectious downbeat that's pleased to meat you. I love the non-sequitir guitar chord ending - Stevo's little cameo was a good call - and the production does indeed shine a bit brighter & punch a bit harder than Ben's former stuff. Super catchy, instantly likable, deceptively addictive... sounds like the game itself. Great work from BB; looking forward to the full special edition release on Monday!
