Annie... are you OK?? While the late great MJ gave us criminality of the smooth persuasion, WillRock offers up his clockwork-flavored take on 'Scrap Brain Zone':
"I was a little late to finding out about the sonic 1 project and as a result all the tracks were taken when found out about it. However, due to some fortune scrap brain zone was put up for claiming and halc came to me and asked me if I'd like to claim it. This remix started when I grabbed alot of Sonic sfx samples and started to mess around with them to form a basis for my drum groove. From there I just let the music flow out and came up with something pretty funky compared to the original which is probably something between Michael Jackson, Streets of Rage music and added chiptune elements."
You just can't go too wrong when combining those three components, especially when you've got the telepathic ability to manipulate synthesizers at will, using only the power of your own brain, as WR has been rumored to possess. Like more than one mix off of Sound of Speed, in-game fx are used heavily, and again like more than one, there's a funky electronica/chiptune vibe. Deia writes:
"I think that despite the low amount of source in here, this comes across pretty instantly as Sonic music. Some of it is the sound affects, but a lot of it is the style you approached it with, and how often you return to the source. I love the funky feel throughout."
"Really diggin' the SFX usage. Very smart. Melody and beat is sufficiently groovy. I love those major key sections. I usually associate Scrap Brain with a very dark sound, but this feels bright. Rock out."
Really sweet solos towards the end; yeah, there's a lot of original material added, but there's a lot of source, too, and what's cool is how well they blend: this easily sounds like it could have been an extended cut of the original, by Nakamura himself. That's high praise, in my mind, but deserved - awesome cut off an awesome album!
