Jewbei's debut Tales of Destiny ReMix was posted back in 2008, so I was glad to see him on Sound of Speed, glad his track was solid, and glad he subbed it, making for a veritable trifecta of gladness. James writes:
"When halc came to me about the project i wasn't sure i had what it takes to remix the Final Zone track but i gave it all i had and as it turned out this mix came out pretty good. Also i would like to point out that i used Zircon's and Arksun's zebra soundbank to make this remix if anyone owns Zebra i encourage you to buy these sounds you wont regret it. Till next time guys i'm out!
P.S. Shout out to Jade for giving me the idea of the title of this mix and for telling me that this style is Progressive Trance :D"
This is a good, catchy source but I'd agree that it's not entirely intuitive from an arrangement perspective in terms of making it more direct & aggressive; I think Jewbei did a good job handling it, with his chosen approach. His production skills have improved, too, which lends this mix a crisp, open sound with a firm foundation. Judges struggled mostly with the amount of time it takes for the source tune to become readily apparent, and the fashion in which it is used, which made the arrangement liberal at some points and conservative at others. Mattias confesses:
"I usually agree with CHz because he's my biggest love on the internet but not today! While the source usage varies from super loose to straight-up source I think the combination of those two and the solid production, backing and overall pleasant track weighs up for it."
I can see why it was a close call, on those grounds, but I tend to agree - I think this is one of the trickier sources on the OST, and I think Jewbei met the challenge head-on with a track that shows off some more polished production skills and an arrangement that, taking some liberties, successfully transforms the original into some rather satisfying UNTZ.
