SWAGGA... Sound of Speed continues, and this mix from director halc himself has some serious jazz/funk/chip/lounge mojo to it. 8-BIT RAT PACK? Yeah, sumtin' like dat... Brandon's mix of this source will always stand as a site classic, but now it has some excellent company. Mr. Wheeler writes:
"I ended up taking on Spring Yard after pulling my original Labyrinth mix in favor of Ben's. It was originally claimed as a superstar-collab between Mattias/Palpable (!), but I guess it still turned out okay. ;) It's a bit more liberal than my usual fare, and I hit a couple brick walls in the process (thanks to ProtoDome and Brandon Strader by the way for helping me out with some tricky chords :P), but I think everything came together pretty well in the end! The bit at the end with the 4-note Labyrinth cameo was inspired by GaMeBoX's tune, and provides a nice segue into Ben's Labyrinth mix, IMO. :D
I had a lot of fun working on this song and I hope you all enjoy it, as well as the rest of The Sound of Speed! <3"
From the sproingy FX of the super-smooth intro to the tempo-fluctuating, glitched, almost ambient ending, this is super-creative and tons of fun. Drew's really managed to start expanding his sound and branching out while retaining a lot of the characteristics that make his sound unique & identifiable, and that's good news for all of us. Just listen to that fill @ 1'29" - that's some Joshua Morse business, that is, yet it segues right back into a chippier vibe without batting an eyelash - or sounding at all unnatural. There's a confidence & swagger to this mix that oozes Vegas, for me, and the fine-grained control over tempo in the last third is resplendent. halc's got a great achievement on his hands having directed The Sound of Speed, but this mix by itself is also the bee's sexy knees, so it's a twofer; really fantastic stuff.
