Not enough SMW2 mixes, folks!!
World needs more of 'em. Even AFTER this spooky-funky chiptro mix by Insert Rupee, Mario's first outing on the SNES will STILL have twice as many mixes on OCR as its sequel. At least Ben & Drew have chipped in with an arrangement of the same theme that Palpable ReMixed back in 2007. The dynamic duo write:
Benjamin Briggs: "Very soon after starting this mix, we hit a brick wall and quit. A few weeks later Drew decided that what we had was good enough to finish up, and I (reluctantly) agreed. I'm glad I did, because what we ended up with here is pretty damn neat. I think the combination of electro/chiptune elements and gratuitous in-game sound effects all add up to a remix that pays tribute to "old school" OCR quite well. Hope you love it!"
halc: "I've always found it a little confusing as to why there are so few Yoshi's Island mixes on the site - the soundtrack is brilliant, and this theme in particular is definitely a favorite, so I'm glad we were able to give it some love. As Ben mentioned, finishing this one up was a bit of an uphill battle compared to our other collaborations (which for the most part have gone quite smoothly), but I love the way it came together; it's a chronicle of Yoshi and Baby Mario's perilous journey through Baby Bowser's fortress.. and the Boos are out for blood."
What Drew said; the source material is a breath of fresh air, because it's simultaneously a very familiar theme AND one that doesn't get much attention, like the overall OST. While Vinnie's take was electronica as well, the two arrangements are quite different; besides the aforementioned chippiness, there's more in-game FX here. If after playing the game you were haunted by the (...annoying?) cries of Baby Mario, well... Insert Rupee are here to haunt you some more ;) This mix is less about transformation into any sort of traditional electronica structures and more about embracing the sinister, careening jig of it all & unabashedly putting the in-game FX up in your business. DEFINITELY makes me wanna go back and play the game, which is always a compliment to the artists; VERY glad halc pushed towards finishing this ReMix, which is unique among their work & a great tribute to a great soundtrack!
